Grading - this course uses the +/- grading system

Submitting exercises.

Exercises that require written responses may be submitted by online submission, email, surface mail, or FAX. You may mail your responses to the following address:

Paul M. Choate
Entomology and Nematology Dept., Bldg 970
Natural Area Drive
University of Florida, Gainesville FL 32611

There may be technological issues that prevent some forms from working correctly. Some of your email providers block form submissions. However, I will try to have these also available online to save you the inconvenience and potential cost of mailing.

As exercises using specimens are completed you should add those to your collection, which will be mailed in for evaluation at the end of the semester.
