My PPT slides, Unit 1 Part 1 - Intro, Homeostasis, Membrane structure   The most popular printing options are to switch from Full Page Slides to either Notes Pages or 2 Slides per Page; and from Print One Side Only to Print Both Sides to save paper; and switch from Color to Grayscale to save on expensive color ink.

Notice:  Our server sometimes doesn't play well with the web browsers Google Chrome and Internet Explorer.  Try switching to FireFox.  For me, many issues get solved and everything seems to load faster as well.  Thank you for your patience.  Our server is due to be upgraded within the year.
