These Biochem tutorials are simply AMAZING! First of all i wanna start of by saying that i like the fact that the course lecturer is actually doing these tutorials himself! It helps him knows his progress in transferring his knowledge of biochem to our young minds and also if his teaching methods have proved to be effective.
So he started off this tutorial by separating the class into 2 teams and started each team with 2 points each. Then proceeded to ask us questions individually. For every right answer, we gained part of a point, for every wrong answer, a part of a point was deducted. He also gave us the opportunity to ask a member from the other team our own personalized biochemistry related questions. THIS, was fun! lol Alot of bickering and competition among the 2 teams but at the end a winner was derived! Which was obviously my team! 😀 (i wish 😥 )
This ‘method’ of tutorial teaching has definitely been most helpful to me. Throughout my entire first semester last year @ UWI i have never walked out of a tutorial with so much knowledge of a course. It’s not that i didnt learn anything during the biochemistry lectures or videos but these tutorials actually got all the info to STICK!
BIOCHEMJM’s Tutorials are to die for..literally! -_-
Cells cells cellsssssssss! The fun topic of cells was done in this week’s lectures. Mind you, i’m NOT being sarcastic when i said “fun” lol i guess that particular topic is fun because i’ve done cells SO many times before; in form5 for CXC and in form6 for CAPE. But we get more and more thorough and indepth in the topic each time we do it though. In other words, our brains are continuously being refreshed with cells increasing our knowledge of said topic. JM’s explainations were so easily understood! His jokes in class increases more interest in paying attention. He also louded up some guys who weren’t giving him their undivided attention. One knew what was going on, the other did not..which turned out to be pretty embarrasing :S LOL anyways..ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE AND…BIOCHEM! Right?! o.O
