You need to know these to dowell in your lab exams.Course Prerequisites: College Level Reading as determined by SAT, ACT, TASP or successfully passing ENGL0305with “C” or better.Biology 1306 (General Biology) is strongly recommended.Course Goals:This course is intended for students majoring in one of the physical sciences or life sciences,engineering, or for students who are pursuing pre-professional programs in medicine, dentistry, pharmacy,veterinary medicine, or other health programs. The course is also beneficial to students who are preparingthemselves for higher-level science courses in their respective curricula.Core Objectives
2BIOL 2101 fulfills the requirement for the Life and Physical Sciences Foundation Component Area of the CoreCurriculum. Like other courses in this category, it focuses on describing, explaining, and predicting naturalphenomena using the scientific method. It involves the understanding of interactions among natural phenomenaand the implications of scientific principles on the physical world and on human experiences. As such, it targetsthe following Core Objectives:Critical Thinking.Critical Thinking Skills (CT) - Creative thinking, innovation, inquiry, and analysis,evaluation and synthesis of information.Communication. Effective development, interpretation and expression of ideas through written, oral andvisual communication.Empirical and Quantitative Skills. Manipulation and analysis of numerical data or observable facts resultingin informed conclusionsTeamwork.Ability to consider different points of view and to work effectively with others to support ashared purpose or goal.Program Student Learning Outcomes (PSLOs) for the Biology Discipline1.Will display an understanding of biological systems and evolutionary processes spanning all ranges ofbiological complexity, including atoms, molecules, genes, cells, and organisms.
