Hello everyone! My name is Deena Kishawi and I’m currently a senior at DePaul University (graduating in June 2016 woot woot!). I’m originally from Chicago and I went to high school here in the South Loop. I am currently majoring in Biological Sciences with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience. I am planning to pursue a career in medicine and I’ll be starting medical school in August of 2016! I’ve been an SI leader for about two years now and I really enjoy being able to share useful tips, resources, and knowledge with students who attend SI sessions! I hope that you feel comfortable to come to me if you have any questions or concerns throughout the quarter (or even beyond)!
Outside of school, I really enjoy reading, writing, working out, cooking, and any outdoor sports/activities. I love watching New Girl, The Office, Gilmore Girls, Sherlock, Chicago PD, Chicago Fire, Chicago Med, and Parenthood.
Videos and Handouts
Week 2 – Hardy Weinberg Equilibrium — As mentioned in this week’s SI sessions, I’ve included some practice problems for population genetics (including using the Hardy Weinberg equilibrium). I’ve also included the practice problems as well as some really useful videos if you haven’t fully grasped the concept yet.
Week 3 – Exam I Review — As mentioned in this week’s SI sessions, I’ve included an incomplete outline of some of the most important concepts we’ve studied in class. I recommend that you do your own studying and at towards the end, work on filling in this incomplete outline without using any of your notes. This will allow you to gauge where you’re at and what you still need to review.
As a reminder for this week – I will be hosting an exam review session from 8:30-9:30a on Monday, January 25th in JTR 111 (Learning Commons of the Library). I hope to see most of you there!
Good luck studying for your exam!
Week 4 – Reproductive Barriers and Taxonomy — This week we talked about reproductive barriers and their efficiencies. Besides the handout that was distributed in class (that you can find in your textbook as well), I recommend that you use some flashcards or other study strategies to understand and differentiate between each kind of reproductive barrier. Here are some useful resources:
Week 5 – Reproductive Barriers and Statistical Analysis — As mentioned in this week’s SI sessions, I’ve included a blank matrix for the different reproductive barriers. This can serve as a useful resource when you are studying for exam 2 next week and need a way to test your knowledge on the material. Keep an eye out for a practice exam for next week’s exam!
Week 6 – Animal Behavior — As mentioned in this week’s SI sessions, though this week’s topics might seem really easy and common sense, they are crucial to understand and be able to apply.
Check out the incomplete outline and the practice test I made for you to study for Exam 2! I will be posting the answer key in the coming days!
Week 7 – Exam Week — As mentioned in the SI sessions, I’ve made and uploaded a practice test for this week’s exam! Make sure to check it out and contact me if you have any questions!
Week 8 – Niches
Week 9 – Energy, food, and nutrients
