The Green Sheet (course syllabus) is in "PDF"format. You need Adobe Acrobat Reader to
open the file. If you don't have this on your computer, it is available
for free from the Adobe website.
The Green Sheets for Fall 2015 will be posted approximately 1 week before the quarter begins. Feel free to check the ones from Spring to get a good idea. In the Fall we will be using the latest edition of the textbook, (14th edition). It is always ideal to have the most current edition of a nutrition textbook - things do change! Students can get by with the 13th edition.

Many students want to take this class online to avoid the travel time to
campus, or because their schedule don't free them up for when the class
is offered. Online courses are not the best learning format
for every student. To get a sense if it is for you, watch this short
video that is on the De Anza Distance Learning website:

Some students do not have realistic expectations as they start an online
course and end up not doing well, as a result. Most students do better
in Biology 45 with regular interaction with the instructor and
classmates, but many students do manage well in a fully online course of
this nature. Watch the video to help you decide which is the best
format for you to learn and master the material of Introduction to Human Nutrition.
