information about the course
This final exam will be worth 100 points, divided into two parts.
Part I, worth 75 points, will be completed during the date of the final
exam. It will
consist of questions pertaining to the taxa that we cover beginning
with Session 18. It will be composed of both a section dealing
with the specimens, and another dealing with more theoretical questions.
Questions will be a combination of short essays, support or refute
statements, compare and contrast, and perhaps some multiple choice and
matching. I might provide more specific information once the exam
Part II, worth 25 points, will consist of a single question that will
be due at 2:00 P.M. Thursday, 4 December. You will complete it
on your own (i.e., without any collaboration or discussion with other
classmates), aided by a computer linked to the Internet. The
question is this:
Suppose that you were hired by a
special $600,000 state grant to design and oversee construction of a
comprehensive website that is intended to serve as the portal to
information about the flora of Pennsylvania. Since the site is
funded by taxpayers, you will be expected to provide information that
will satisfy a diverse audience including precollege students,
undergraduates, property owners, gardeners, developers, hunters,
hikers, physicians, lawyers, farmers, foresters, scientists,
conservation groups, and anybody else with access to the web.
What kinds of information would you
provide? What links would you create to other sites? How
would you design such a site to make it attractive to a general
Your deliverable will be a prototypical website, developed
either in MS Word or a Web-authoring program like Dreamweaver that will
have appropriate text, images, and links. I will open it using my
Firefox web-browser. Any annotation that you may wish to provide
will be welcome as well.
