You will be learning, through the words of a UCLA research scientist, Bill Schopf, what it means to go through the process of scientific inquiry, with its several necessary steps, its trial and errors and its wrong directions.

This process is at the base of scientific discovery, and will be discussed by Dr. Schopf in the pages of his book. You will slowly discover during the course of the semester how Cradle of Life can be a fascinating companion to our lectures and labs. One reading assignment typically consists of one book chapter.

I will be providing a series of web pages the relative links will be listed below with an introduction to each single book chapter and to its significant points, helping you figure out the type of information you need to get out of them. I would strongly recommend that you start working on this book by reading the information on its back cover present in the paperback edition , and then browse its Table of Contents.

From the chapter titles, get an idea of what the book is about and notice the progression in topics from Chapter 1 to Chapter After you have done that, start reading the first assignment. What is the best way for you to read and understand the book materials, and retain the information? Look at the index, figure out the logic behind that order. What is the author doing, why, and in what manner does he do it? Then, before a quiz, start reading the introduction to the appropriate chapter; browse the paragraphs, look at the figures, get an idea of what the chapter is about.

This whole process will take 15 minutes or less. Once you build a mental frame for the materials, start over and study the whole chapter. What I am saying is, take your time in reading these materials. Do not rush in at the last minute.

Get an overall idea. An important note: you will be reading these materials on your own. If you think it will be enough to read a single chapter just once, or to briefly review it before the quiz, you will soon realize that it will not work.

You need to know the materials well. Taking time to work with "Cradle of Life" will give you an idea of what the book is about and what thread keeps it together. It will ultimately set the right tone for a better understanding of the whole class materials. It will be worth it in terms of both excellent grades and personal knowledge. Any other person, in any other state or country, using these materials for any reason is in violation of copyright.
