Biology is the foundation of our science sequence and topics addressed in this laboratory course stress the interrelationships between living organisms and the biosphere, including the effects of human activities on the natural environment. This course considers current issues and problems at these science-technology-society interfaces. A major focus of this course is on learning to access information using technology-related resources, online researching, computer simulations, and working in groups for decision making, problem solving and class presentations. Most students sequence into Chemistry 163 or Chemistry Honors 173 the following year. This course fulfills the science graduation requirement.
- Placement is by departmental recommendation.
