Course Structure

Baology follows a regular cadence of three TA lectures during the week based on the material covered each Saturday in the main lecture. Unit summaries are written each year to match the interests and levels of the students in the course. We also give assigned readings each week to be completed before the main lecture and suggested readings for students curious to learn more. All this doesn't include spontaneous supplementary sessions, reviews and fun events!
