Anatomy and Physiology II syllabi and supplemental materials. This course covers a survey of the human body that stresses biological principles, chemical interpretations, and physical applications at the various levels of organization. The class lectures cover embryonic and physiologic theories of muscular, nervous, integument, skeletal, and endocrine systems. The class laboratories examine the integument, skeletal, and nervous systems. The department encourages students to complete Principles of Biology II/Lab (BIO102) and/or Chemical Science I/Lab (CHM110) before enrolling in this course. Course meets: 3 hrs. lecture; 3 hrs. lab. Course materials by Dr. Phillip T. Wong and Dr. Mark Beaumont, content added to OER Commons by Victoria Vidal.
Syllabi and Lab Exercises for SCI 201: Anatomy and Physiology I. This course is designed to provide students with a basic understanding of the structure, function and disorders of the human body. Topics include an overview of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems, as well as a discussion of tissues and special senses. A three-hour lab session is required each week. Course materials written by Maria Carles and Georgia Thoidis, content uploaded to OER Commons by Victoria Vidal.

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 “.gift” file contains more than 100 test bank questions of multiple formats (multiple choice, fill-in-the0blank, true/false, matching and short essay) for a Biology I course. The categories and tags are mapped to the content of Foundations of Biology 2.0 (Compton, Hyde and Williams, 2018) a remix of the two OpenStax biology texts, Biology and Concepts of Biology. The questions span the following content areas: Introduction to Biology, Chemistry, Biological Molecules, Cells, Membrane transport, Energy, Respiration, Photosynthesis, Reproduction, Inheritance, DNA, and Gene Expression.
A laboratory manual for a first-semester introductory biology class, developed at Greenfield Community College. Specifically, this manual is tailored towards community colleges, where biology majors and general education students are frequently in the same course sections. This manual is for online instruction, and features labs that students can do at home. It is designed to work in tandem with the textbook Foundations of Biology 2.0, also developed at Greenfield Community College.

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
An adaptation of OpenStax Biology and OpenStax Concepts of Biology from Greenfield Community College. in this version, we've curated content from both open textbooks to create a version suitable for an intro biology class in a community college, which frequently includes both biology majors and students taking the course as part of a general education curriculum.
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.
A second semester introductory physics course for life sciences students that looks to deepen students' understanding of biology and chemistry through physics all through the lens of understanding two of the most fundamental particles in the Universe: electrons and photons. The book begins with exploring the quantum mechanical nature of these objects to expand on what students have learned in chemistry and then proceeds to geometric optics (using the human eye as a theme), electrostatics (using membrane potentials), circuits (using the neuron), and finally synthesizing everything in a unit exploring the meaning of "light is an electromagnetic wave."
