Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

You should have an understanding of mitotic cell division and the cell cycle, cell and cell structure, diploid and haploid phases of sexual life-cycles and gamatogenesis before starting on this module. These topics are covered in units on cells, the origin of life and continuity of life normally taken at advanced levels of school biology.

Welcome to the Teachers' Corner of Small Things Considered. In this section, we include the posts we deem most adequate for teaching purposes. We have reorganized them into subject areas geared for a typical microbiology course. To date, this material has been used for various forms of intellectual enrichment, e.g., suggested readings, class presentations, a source of topics for term papers. You can also find here our Talmudic Questions, which we characterize as those whose answers cannot be found in Google. We are told that some of these questions have been used in exams ranging from tests for undergraduate courses to qualifying/prelims for graduate students.

This activity was designed for blind learners, but all types of learners can use it to understand the structure of a plant cell. The purpose of this activity is to create an accurate representation of the shape and characteristics of plant cells. The cell models provide both tactile and kinesthetic feedback for students learning the structure of the cell. The bright colors and good contract also work well for students with low vision.
