Earth Covered with Living Things! Scientists have deter- mined that life abounds on our planet. Over the next 16 weeks, you will be introduced to some of the major concepts of biology, the study of all life. By the end of the se- mester, each student is expected to have the ability to describe in their own words each of the major con- cepts and processes in botany. These con- cepts and processes will be presented to you throughout the semester in both the lecture and laboratory portions of this course, as well as in the required text books. Once this knowledge is mas- tered, you will be asked to take that knowledge and apply it to solve new prob- lems on related topics on your examinations and exercises in both lecture and lab. Our planet is teeming with life, both on land and in the oceans. Course Topics: Ecology Impact of biology on society Chemistry Metabolism (including en- zymes, photosynthesis, & aerobic respiration) Cellular biology Genetics Organisms (bacteria, single- celled eukaryotes, fungi, plants, & animals) Student Objectives 2 Required Texts 2 Preparing for Class 2 Grading 3 Extra Credit 4 Reducing Distractions 5 Inside this issue: Fall 2011 Norco College Volume 9 , Issue 1 BIOLOGY 1 L AB S ECTION Tues am # 38057 Tues pm # 38059 Thur am # 38060 Lec: Thtr 101, TTh 11:15-12:40 Lab: IT 128, 7:55 - 11:05 a.m. or 2:00 - 5:10 p.m. Tel: (951) 372-7012 Room: Portable B 206 E-mail: teresa.friedrichfinnern@norcocollege.edu Contact Info Teresa J.

it at the next class meeting, via e-mail, or during office hours. I encourage appropriate questions during lecture. Don’t let your- self get behind in the reading or leave questions on major con- cepts until just before an exam. It is too much material to grasp the night before an exam! To be prepared, you will need to study 6-9 hours per week for lec- ture and another 3-6 hours per For most students taking notes fills an important need to move the material from the ears and eyes through their brain and hand in order to absorb it more effectively. Notes also provide a reminder of what was discussed and can serve to flag material that is unclear to you. Each day, reread your notes. If you can't remember or under- stand what you wrote, ask about week for lab, in addition to class time. You will be expected to make graphs describing data collected in lab. Familiarity with graphing is helpful. Questions about course content,
