Course Level

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • Goal 02 - Critical Thinking
    • Gather factual information and apply it to a given problem in a manner that is relevant, clear, comprehensive, and conscious of possible bias in the information selected.
    • Imagine and seek out a variety of possible goals, assumptions, interpretations, or perspectives which can give alternative meanings or solutions to given situations or problems.
    • Analyze the logical connections among the facts, goals, and implicit assumptions relevant to a problem or claim; generate and evaluate implications that follow from them.
  • Goal 03 - Natural Science
    • Demonstrate understanding of scientific theories.
    • Formulate and test hypotheses by performing laboratory, simulation, or field experiments in at least two of the natural science disciplines. One of these experimental components should develop, in greater depth, students' laboratory experience in the collection of data, its statistical and graphical analysis, and an appreciation of its sources of error and uncertainty.
    • Communicate their experimental findings, analyses, and interpretations both orally and in writing.
    • Evaluate societal issues from a natural science perspective, ask questions about the evidence presented, and make informed judgments about science-related topics and policies.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those systems.
    • Discern patterns and interrelationships of bio-physical and socio-cultural systems.
    • Describe the basic institutional arrangements (social, legal, political, economic, religious) that are evolving to deal with environmental and natural resource challenges.
    • Evaluate critically environmental and natural resource issues in light of understandings about interrelationships, ecosystems, and institutions.
    • Propose and assess alternative solutions to environmental problems.

Biology of Organisms is one course of a two-course sequence in general biology. The main topics of this course are biodiversity (classification, morphology, and natural history of bacteria, protists, fungi, animals, and plants), an introduction to anatomy, physiology, and behavior of animals, structure and function in plants, and ecology. Prerequisite or equivalent: college level reading. Hours per week: Lecture-3; Lab-2. MNTC: 2/3/10
