Intended Learning Outcomes
  • Examinations and lab write-ups are part of this course designed as a preparatory program to launch students into higher level biological classes.
  • It is the intention of the instructor to give every student a firm footing in some of the basic premises and processes of biology.
  • It is also hoped that many students will begin to appreciate the incredible diversity and form of life and to foster a hunger for more knowledge that will last a lifetime and will help each individual become a more proficient person in their chosen profession.
