Prerequisite: A desire to study and learn biology. Note: This is a companion course to BIO 113, but you can take these courses in any order. You may also take BIO 111 and 114 to get credit for a full year of intro biology, but I recommend 113. You may take any one BIO 11x course to fulfill the NSRQ requirement .
Link to purchase e-text Integrated Concepts in Biology by Campbell, Heyer, Paradise: You must purchase the electronic version to be added to the course. If you do not already have an account on Trunity, you will be asked to create a free user account. After you have created your account, you can purchase access to the book. You will need a credit card. The price of the text is $45.00. If you have any problems setting up and account or purchasing the course, please email email@example.com. You may also purchase the text through the bookstore to get reimbursed as part of your financial aid package.
Once purchased, access ICB here. To use this book most effectively, read the text and answer the Integrating Questions as they appear. Do NOT skip the questions until later. Students learn best if they construct their own knowledge, and the Integrating Questions are designed to help you do just that. To better understand biology, you will explore math, presented in BioMath Explorations, and relevance, presented in ELSIs (Ethical, Legal, Social Implications.
- To access the recorded lectures, go to the BIO 114 course on Moodle (http://moodle.davidson.edu/) and you will see a link to WarpWire. Once on WarpWire, choose the recording you want to review.
- I use e-mail as a regular form of communication – check your e-mail regularly!
- I assume that everyone has had some high school biology and chemistry. If you have not, this course may be very difficult for you. You should talk to me the first day if you have not had one or both of these high school courses.
