BIOL& 212 - Majors Animal w/Lab

6.0 Credits
Second in three-quarter series (211, 212, 213). An introduction to the patterns and mechanisms of evolution, and animal (invertebrate and vertebrate) diversity, development, anatomy, and physiology. A course for life-science majors and pre-professionals.
Prerequisite (BIOL& 211 and ENGL& 101 and MATH 087 with a minimum grade of 2.0) and (CHEM& 121 or CHEM& 161 or equivalent with a minimum grade of 2.0).
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Demonstrate a critical and basic understanding of the nature, process and methodology of science, especially as it relates to the study of evolution, population genetics, animal phylogeny, physiology and development.
  2. Describe, identify, and explain, with examples, the important concepts of biology that apply to evolutionary biology, population genetics, animal phylogeny, physiology and development.
  3. Describe, compare and contrast major animal phyla with respect to structure and function of the major organ systems (using anatomical, physiological and evolutionary perspectives).
  4. Integrate across levels of biological organization to explain particular evolutionary processes, animal morphology and animal physiology.
  5. Communicate effectively using language and understanding of evolutionary biology, developmental biology, zoology and animal physiology.
  6. Correctly and appropriately collect and analyze data, including basic statistical testing.
  7. Appropriately select and properly and safely use a variety of laboratory techniques and instruments, including observation and critical examination of microscopic of animal cells, tissues and organs and the basic principles of dissection of animal tissues and organs.
  8. Productively work in groups to successfully complete group activities and assignments.
  9. Demonstrate information literacy: determine the extent of information needed, access information legally and efficiently, evaluate sources critically and incorporate the information effectively and ethically into scientific writing.
