MONTGOMERY COLLEGE Business, Science, Mathematics, and Technology Division Germantown Campus Spring 2011 1. Instructor Information Dr Robert Potter Day phone: 301-319-0139 Email: [email protected] Office hours: immediately before/after class, by appt. II. General Course Information BI 107, Principles of Biology 4 credit hours BI 107 assessment levels : EN 101/101A, MA 100, RD 120 Lecture Sat 9:00 am to 11:45 am, lab 12:30 to 3:10 Final exam: Sat May14, 9:00 to 11:00 am This course is taught in a lecture and laboratory format. This course, first in a two-semester sequence intended for natural science majors, covers the molecular and cellular basis of life, enzymes, photosynthesis, cell respiration, genetics, reproduction and development. Three hours of lecture each week and three hours of laboratory each week. Class participation, attendance, and preparedness are expected. Reading the material before class should increase your comprehension of the material. III. BI 107 Outcomes BIO 107 OUTCOMES 1. Describe the basic principles of chemistry that are important to Biology and identify the structure and functions of macromolecules important to living things. 2. Identify basic cell types, cellular structures and describe their functions. 3. Describe the basic processes of cellular metabolism including cell respiration and photosynthesis. 4. Apply basic mechanisms of heredity to predict inheritance of traits. 5. Explain the cellular and molecular basis of inheritance. 6. Describe the processes of reproduction and development. 7. Analyze and interpret experimental results to reinforce biological principles. BI 107 COURSE GOALS A successful student should be able to: understand basic principles of chemistry that are important to Biology identify properties of enzymes, cell membranes, and cellular organelles. describe basic metabolic processes of cellular respiration and photosynthesis. differentiate the characteristics of mitotic cell division and meiosis. understand patterns of inheritance and solve basic genetics problems. describe the structure of DNA, how DNA replicates, how DNA controls protein synthesis, and how DNA mutates. describe the processes of animal embryonic development. recognize types of plant and animal tissues. use the compound microscope. make simple tables and graphs, and solve simple mathematical equations.

    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.
