“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.” Calvin Coolidge This works! Decide to finish, and finish. This class. Your degree. Your career goal.

“Life is a series of problems. To realize this is to transcend it.” M. Scott Peck The day you wake up without any problems or stress is the day you don’t wake up. The primary tool for becoming omnipotent and transcendent is discipline.

How Recorded Lectures Are Numbered BIO 100 used to be BIO 101. Files of recorded lectures are numbered as follows: Each file is designated with three numbers separated by decimal points, e.g., 2.2.1. First number designates Unit (and exam number). Each unit contains 4-5 lectures. Second number designates Lecture (corresponds to topic). Each lecture will be broken into several modules. Third number designates Module or mini-lecture. Topic name will also be given. 1.1.2 Intro to Science

"The question of questions for mankind—the problem which underlies all others, and is more deeply interesting than any other—is the ascertainment of the place which man occupies in nature and his relations to the universe of things." Thomas Henry Huxley Man's Place in Nature Johann Wenzel Peter

Biology: the Science of Life From Latin word roots: “Bios” meaning life, and “Logos” meaning word, dialog, or science. Taken as scientific study of life or simply, the science of life. This definition will serve as the outline for our first week of class. Today we will examine life and next time we will address science .

Word Roots The root “bios” appears in many other words as well. A few: biochemistry bioluminescence antibiotic symbiosis Often the meaning of biological terms may be deduced from known roots. Therefore, it is easier to learn roots than memorize terms, like learning the alphabet instead of memorizing words. Biology is like a second language and the word root approach will permit you to more easily get through the terminology to the ideas and principles. Therefore, recommend a book, Dictionary of Word Roots and Combining Forms by D.J. Borror.

Etymology: study of word origins including word roots and combining forms. Try a couple: "mycos" = fungus, mycology = ? "zoon" = animal, zoology = ? "chromo" =color, "soma" = body, chromosome = ?, not always exact translation "di" = two, "morph" =form, dimorphic = ?

Use an etymological approach Book costs about the same as a pizza. Book will make you educated like Mr. Charters, pizza will make you round like Mr. Charters. Easy choice!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
