BIOLOGICAL SCIENCE II
BIOL 122 (4 credit hours)
Campbell – Biology In Focus, Urry,Cain, Wasserman, Minorsky, Jackson & Reese
Biology (9 ed.), Raven, Johnson, Losos, Mason & Singer
Biology Laboratory Manual, Department of Biology & Geology
A Photographic Atlas for the Biology Laboratory, Van de Graff & Crawley (optional)
A quad-ruled notebook (w/ 3-ringed binder) is required.
Biological principles and concepts from the tissue through ecosystem levels of organization including evolutionary processes.
To acquaint students with biological principles associated with multicellularity, development, phylogeny, ecology and evolution.
To acquaint students with the anatomical organization of organisms to include tissue, organs, and systems and their functions.
To trace the development of organisms.
To trace the phylogeny of organisms.
To acquaint students with the behavior and ecology or organisms.
STUDENT COMPETENCY STATEMENTS:
By the end of this course the student will have demonstrated the ability to:
Discuss biological principles and topics of historical and current interest and importance.
Describe the biological processes that operate at the multicellular levels to include histological, organismal, population, community and ecosystem levels of organization.
Apply theoretical concepts in the laboratory by following a written procedure
Perform written communication of experimental results in “scientific paper” format.
METHODS OF PRESENTATION:
This course will consist of lectures by the instructors, classroom discussion, and group and individual laboratory exercises. The instructors will utilize appropriate modes of visual aids and laboratory equipment.
METHODS OF EVALUATION:
Achievement of course objectives will be evaluated by lecture exams, laboratory reports, notebooks, quizzes and exams, and a final comprehensive exam.
The lecture will count for 60% and the lab for 40% of the final course grade. However,
you must receive a passing grade in lab to pass the class.
in the course will be determined as follows:
10% - weekly laboratory quizzes
10% - laboratory notebooks/assignments
10% - laboratory report
10% - 2 laboratory exams
45% - 3 lecture quizzes
15% - final comprehensive exam
You will not pass the course if you do not pass the laboratory components.
See the course schedule below for dates of lecture quizzes, lab exams and final exam.
1) This is a survey course and covers a great deal of material! The text is good and can help explain lecture material you may not fully understand. I will not cover all of the text in class, but you will understand lectures better if you read the assigned text sections
before you come to class
, and you will do better on tests if you keep up with the reading. In addition, I will provide information in lecture that will
your text. You will be expected to know this additional material for lecture quizzes, so it is imperative that you attend lectures to do well in this class.
2) The lab is heavily scheduled and you will be expected to stay for the entire period.
3) You will be expected to have read all laboratory exercises and the accompanying text references
before attending class. You must bring both your laboratory manual and your text to each class.
4) No make-up exams will be given for missed lecture quizzes except under extreme situations (see your Student
There will be no opportunity to make up missed lab quizzes or exams. An exception may be made for the two lab exams if medical or legal documentation is presented; however, the make-up must be arranged with another scheduled BIOL 122 lab exam period during the week that the absence occurred.
6) Because lecture and laboratory work will be integrated, students are required to attend 75% of scheduled classes. Failure to do so will result in an automatic grade of “F.” Pop quizzes may be given periodically to encourage attendance.
7) You are strongly encouraged to make appointments with your instructor if you are having problems in the course.
You may make an appointment or drop in if I am not busy with another student. In general, the following hours are
available for appointments:
T TH 9:00-10:30 AM, W 9:30-11:00 AM
. If my office hours conflict with your
schedule, we can make arrangements to meet at another time during the week.
8) Policy for Portable Electronic Devices: The use of any portable electronic devices, including cell phones,
pagers, MP3 players, iPods, etc., during class is not allowed for any reason unless prior approval has been
given to a student from the instructor or unless required for the course. If you are planning to have any of
these devices in class, they must be turned off and stowed away for the duration of the class period. If you use
a portable electronic device during a test, quiz, or other assessment, you are eligible to receive a failing grade
on that assignment.
9) You will be expected to endorse the following HONOR PLEDGE on every quiz or report:
"On my honor as a University of South Carolina at Aiken student, I have neither given nor received any unauthorized aid of this assignment/examination. To the best of my knowledge I am not in violation of academic honesty."
Infractions of this honor pledge will not be tolerated
! Any infraction will be documented and a report will be placed
in your academic file.
10) If you have a physical, psychological, and/or learning disability that might affect your performance in this class, please contact the Office of Disability Services, B&E 134, (803) 643-6816, as soon as possible. The Office of Disability
Services will determine appropriate accommodations based on documentation.
