2 Acknowledgements The creation of this course and manual would not have been possible without the work and support of many people. First and foremost we would like to acknowledge Sherryl Broverman, who wrote much of the first edition of the text and whose words can still be seen in many chapters of this edition. We are grateful for the support of William Collins, whose leadership inspired the growth of this course, and are very thankful for the hard work and feedback of many Stony Brook teaching assistants. Dr. Diane Ebert May of Michigan State University generously provided us with full access to her website and teaching materials to enhance the sections on use of the Scientific Method. We also received support from the mentors at the Summer Institute of Undergraduate Education— their work is supported by the National Academy of Sciences and the Howard Hughes Medical Institute. Of course we assume all responsibility for errors in text and information accuracy. As always, we thank Ellen Lopez, Desiree DeFigueroa, and Al Wilkinson for the day-to-day management that keeps the course running. We thank the publishers, authors, and illustrators who have graciously allowed us to reproduce their drawings, tables, and graphs. We also thank Ashley E. Conway and Oliver Bossdorf for endless stimulating discussions and helpful comments on earlier versions of this manual. The teaching philosophy used in this book was strongly influenced by Daniel K. Apple and Pacific Crest’s philosophy of Process Education and none of this would have been possible without their amazing guidance. M. Jonas, C. R. Noto, J.M. Miyazaki, and E. Woo November 2006
