Students will be able to access textbook materials, lab exercises, and online practice quizzes to help them develop a richer understanding of human anatomy and physiology. A lab manual will be designed and students will be able to access it beforehand.
Anatomy/Physiology, Biology, Botany, Ecology, Genetics, Nutrition and Zoology.
A course for students pursuing a technical career requiring basic laboratory skills. A hands-on approach to instrumentation use, care and maintenance is provided. Topics of study include evaluation and preparation of solutions, viscosity and pH measurements, spectroscopy, protein determination, and separation techniques such as filtration, centrifugation, chromatography, and electrophoresis. Documentation and quality assurance are stressed. (2 lecture hours and 4 lab hours per week-this course is a 4 credit course)

An introduction to cellular and molecular biology. Major topics include the biochemical basis of life, cell biology, photosynthesis, respiration, mitosis, meiosis, genetics, DNA structure and replication and protein synthesis. Students engage the scientific method by designing, conducting and evaluating laboratory experiences that include selected topics in cell structure and function, enzymes, respiration, photosynthesis, genetics and molecular biology. NOTE: Students may receive credit for BIO 119 or BIO 126, but not for both.
This course is an introduction to organismal biology with a focus on evolution, the diversity of life and ecology. Major topics include the processes and outcomes of microevolution, macroevolution and the history of life, a survey of the major groups of eukaryotic organisms, basic plant and animal structures and their functions, and ecology. Students engage the scientific method by designing, conducting and evaluating laboratory experiences that include selected topics in seedless plants, seed plants, invertebrates, chordates, animal behavior, ecology and evolution. Field-based lab experiences train students to observe, collect, measure and monitor organisms in the wild.
This is a one-semester course covering various aspects of human reproduction, from anatomy and physiology of the reproductive systems to genetics to assisted
reproductive technologies, etc. The text currently in use is not only expensive but also dated,
with a publication date of 2005. I will redesign the course to include all topics listed in the
college course description, in module format. I

This course is a basic study of the structure and functioning of the human body. Emphasis will be
placed on the interrelationships among the systems. This course introduces the major chemical
and biological principles through the study of the human body. Note: This course may be taken
alone as a 3 credit biology course OR in conjunction with BIO102 Human Biology Laboratory as
a 4 credit biology course.
This course is designed to be an introduction to the biology of microorganism. The emphasis is on the
specific properties of microorganisms and their relation to disease.
