Primary Instructor:

Biology is a fascinating and diverse field of study. This one-term laboratory course is intended for students not planning to conentrate in the biological sciences that want an introduction to the nature of science and first-hand experience with processes of scientific inquiry. It complements BIOLOGY 100, and either BIOLOGY 100 or another 100-level biology course should be taken concurrently or have been taken previously.

An introductory biology course should expose students to the ways that biologists explore questions about the natural world, drawing on the latest research, and let students experience that sense of personal discovery for themselves. In this course, students will not be graded on their ability to memorize isolated facts, but will be coerced into thinking about how biologists address and answer questions about biological phenomena. This course will focus on the processes of scientific inquiry and require students to think critically and creatively. Students will improve their thinking and reasoning skills as they pose original questions, formulate testable hypotheses and predictions, design experiments and tests to address their research questions, collect and analyze data, interpret their results, and present their research projects to their peers.

Textbook: None. Readings will be available through CTools.
