MTWTh 2:30 3:30 Also available by appointment! Our Ɵ me together in this course will enable you to… 1. learn the language and fundamental concepts of modern and classical biological sciences in order to be successful in future academic and/or professional endeavors. 2. grow as a student of science, by integra Ɵ ng lectures, discussions, laboratories, home study, and small group study into a holis Ɵ c approach to learning. 3. work as a member of a laboratory team, taking responsibility for one’s own success, but learning to adapt, share and learn with others during laboratory mee Ɵ ngs. 4. become a cri Ɵ cally thinking member of our democra Ɵ c society, being able to read and discuss issues raised by modern advances in the life sciences, in order to make in formed decisions for oneself, family, friends, and community. Course Objec Ɵ ves Welcome to Biology 3! In this course we will examine the fundamen tal principles of biology including basic chemistry, the cellular basis of life, re produc Ɵ on, gene Ɵ cs, energy pro cessing, evolu Ɵ on, body systems, and nutri Ɵ on. In fact, it’s no exaggera Ɵ on to say that you’ll be learning about the secrets of life! You will learn how the process of science works, and prac Ɵ ce thinking and working as a scien Ɵ st. This course is like many other things in life you get out of it what you put in. Learning is not passive, but rather requires ac Ɵ ve, though ƞ ul en- gagement . That means being inquisi Ɵ ve; ask lots of ques Ɵ ons! Asking "why" is just as important as asking "what" or "how". My aim is to help you succeed in this course by fostering your curiosity and guiding you to think cri Ɵ‐ cally (skills that you'll use long a Ō er our Ɵ me together). You may be taking this course because it meets a requirement or be cause, perhaps you, like me, are just a super nerd (high fi ve!). Regardless of what brought you to the course, I hope that you will leave with a newfound apprecia Ɵ on for biology and the scien Ɵ fi c process, and with a greater ability to think cri Ɵ cally about the world around you.
