Notes:
I have converted my Powerpoint notes to outline view and are readable with Adobe Acrobat.  Click the link below this to download a free Acrobat reader if you do not have it.
I suggest you not install the Photoshop Album Starter Edition, you disable that feature by clicking on that box to uncheck it.

Adobe Acrobat

I suggest that you make a directory for bio101 BEFORE you click on my notes and store the notes there.  
Most people manage to download stuff from the web and then don't know where they have
saved it. The notes will be posted on as  long as individuals in the class respect the intent and purpose for their presence. 
The actual taking of notes is highly educational and useful, therefore I wish you to take notes in class at least with a highlighter/
The note-taking process focuses your mind on the lecture and writing further imprints the materials into your brain.  
If you miss a day (for serious and verifiable reasons), use this resource to give you some idea of what was presented.  
Please remember that these notes are for me to use when I lecture.  I do not need to write everything down when I lecture 
to remember what to say.  There will be less graphics in the lecture notes and this can be a real problem in highly graphical 
sections of the course.  YOU will have to draw those graphics.
