Unformatted text preview: BIOL 1010 Principles of Biology I Lecture Information Objectives: This course is designed as an introductory course to acquaint both majors and non majors with biological processes and principles encountered in our world. Text: Biology: Concepts & Connections. Campbell, Mitchell, Reece. 4th edition. Benjamin Cummings Publishers 2003. New books include a Study Guide and a CD. Chapter Chapter 1 Chapter 15 Chapter 2 Chapter 3 Chapter 4 Chapter 5 Chapter 5 Chapter 6 Chapter 7 Chapter 10 Chapter 16 Chapter 8 Chapter 27 Chapter 9 Chapter 10 Chapter 1 1 Lecture Topics Topic Unit One Introduction: The Scientific Study of Life Systematics & Domains of Life (only section 15.10 - Taxonomy) The Chemical Basis of Life The Molecules of Cells A Tour of the Cell The Working Cell (sections 5.10-5.13- Cell Membrane) Exam 1 (100 pts) Unit Two The Working Cell (all other sections) How Cells Harvest Energy Photosynthesis: Using Light to Make Food Molecular Biology of the Gene (sections 10.17 - 10.22- Viruses) Prokaryotes (sections 16.7 through 16.17- Prokaryotes) Exam 2 (100 pts) Unit Three Cellular Basis of Reproduction: Binary Fission, Mitosis, Meiosis Reproduction and Embryonic Development through Patterns of Inheritance Molecular Biology of the Gene (other sections) Replication, Transcription, Translation The Control of Gene Expression Exam 3 (100 pts) Unit Four Chapter 12 DNA Technology and the Human Genome Chapter 13 How Populations Evolve Chapter 14 The Origin of Species Chapter 15 Tracing Evolutionary History (other sections) Final Exam (Comprehensive) (150 pts) > Topics listed present a general outline of subject matter to be covered. Individual instructors may vary the order of the material. Instructors will determine lecture exam dates. > Students are responsible for all text and lecture material as well as any announcements made in class during their absence. > According to the AUM Undergraduate Catalog, “students are expected to attend punctually every lecture, laboratory exercise, and other classroom activity.” > Note that the Lab for Principles of Biology I is a separate course and will have its own syllabus and grade assessment. > An Instructional Support Lab (ISL) located in Room 203 Goodwyn Hall is an excellent resource facility for this course. Tutors, audio Visual materials, and computer software are available to assist students in their Principles of Biology course work. The CD that comes with the textbook is an excellent source of resources including practice tests. > In accordance with the Student Discipline Code, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. > It is the policy of AUM to accommodate individuals with disabilities pursuant to federal law and the University’s commitment to equal educational opportunities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any necessary accommodations at the beginning of the course. NOTE: Make up exams are given at the discretion of the lecture instructor. Grading for the Course: (3) lecture exams @ 100 points each = 300 points Comprehensive Final Exam = 150 points Total Possible Points = 450 points Letter Grade Assignment For Course: A = 405 pts & above B = 360-404 points C = 315-359 points D = 270-314 points F = 269 Doints & below BIOL 1011 Principles of Biology | Laboratory Information Objective: This lab is designed to introduce students to laboratory exercises that will assist in their understanding of biological principles in their contemporary world.

Being prepared is essential to a successful lab activity. Faiting to be prepared can result in loss of points on daily grades. > According to the AUM Undergraduate Catalog, “students are expected to attend punctually every lecture, laboratory exercise, and other classroom activity," therefore, students are expected to be on time and remain in lab for the entire duration of a lab session. Being tardy or leaving early will result in loss of points on daily grades. > Students are expected to attend the lab for which he/she is registered. Make up labs are provided only to students with valid reasons for their absence. It is the responsibility of the student to contact the instructor to make the necessary arrangements. Validation must be provided to the instructor for the absence. If a lab must be missed due to attendance at school related activities, arrangements should be made with the instructor in advance. Labs are disassembled at the end of each week to prepare for the next lab session and will not be available for make up after that time. Failure to handle missed labs in this manner will result in a grade of zero on the daily grade for that lab and a grade of zero on the lab test given that day. > Weekly lab quizzes are given at the beginning of each lab on the previous week’s lab. A student may take the lab quiz following we missed lab. Missing a second or subsequent lab automatically results in a grade of zero for the lab quiz or quizzes missed. > No make up lab practicals (midterm and final) will be given other than during the week scheduled for that practical. You will need a scantron sheet and a pencil for the midterm and final. > Note that the lab for Principles of Biology I is a separate course and has its own syllabus and grade assessment. > The Instructional Support Lab (ISL) located in Room 203 Goodwyn Hall is an excellent resource for this lab. Tutors, audio visual materials, and computer software are available to assist students in their lab work. Slides viewed during some labs are available on the AUM website. The CD that comes with the text book is an excellent resource, also. > It is the policy of AUM to accommodate individuals with disabilities pursuant to federal law and the University’s commitment to equal educational opportunities. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any necessary accommodations at the beginning of the course. > If it becomes necessary to leave lab for a fire drill, tornado warning, or any other emergency, be sure to return to lab as soon as the all ciear signal is given if the lab period is not over. If the lab period is Over, check with the instructor or Biology Dept secretary as soon as possible to find out when the make up will be available. > In accordance with the Student Discipline Code, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated in the lab. > NO EATING, DRINKING OR CHEWING IS ALLOWED IN LABS. NO TOBACCO PRODUCTS OF ANY KIND ARE ALLOWED IN LABS. CELL PHONES SHOULD BE TURNED OFF DURING LAB. Failure to comply with these rules may result in loss of points on daily grades.
