Course Description: Biology 51 is the first semester of major’s General Biology, which consists of three broad areas: evolutionary biology, survey of biological diversity, and ecology. No prior knowledge of science or biology is assumed. Emphasis is placed on learning the fundamental concepts and facts of biology to establish a solid basis for later courses in biology. This course satisfies General Education area III-A. In this course, the skills of written communication, research, critical thinking, and quantitative literacy will be developed through lectures and laboratory study. Attendance: Attendance at lectures is essential if one is to master the material. You will be held responsible for all material presented in the lecture whether you are present or not. Attendance at labs is mandatory! One unexcused absence from the lab will reduce your final course grade by 2%. Two unexcused absences from the lab will reduce your final course grade by 10%. Three unexcused absences from the lab will result in a failing grade for the entire course. General Information - 1 of 8

Due to limited space, you must attend the lab section in which you are registered. Failure to attend your own lab section without first clearing it with Ms. Walker will be counted as an unexcused absence. For exceptionally compelling reasons (e.g., hospitalization, a University-sponsored event) permission to attend another lab may be granted. This permission can only be granted by Ms. Walker or Dr. Brunell and must be obtained on an EMERGENCY ADMITTANCE TO LAB form in advance. In case of illness, you must notify either Ms. Walker or Dr. Brunell (not your lecturer or your lab instructor) prior to the meeting of your scheduled lab, obtain documentation regarding your illness from the UOP Health Center or your physician, and make arrangements to make up the lab as soon as you return to school.

    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.
