Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Goal
  • 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.
  • Goal 10 - People/Environment
    • Explain the basic structure and function of various natural ecosystems and of human adaptive strategies within those 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.
    • Articulate and defend the actions they would take on various environmental issues.

Description
Meets Mn Transfer Curriculum Goal Areas 3 and 10 - Natural Sciences, People and the Environment. The focus of this course is cellular biology and how cellular characteristics determine the characteristics of all life. This class builds the needed foundation for any student moving forward in the field of biology or health care. It is also of use to general education students seeking to understand life around them and its impact on the world. Students will gain valuable experience using the scientific method, experimentation and literature study to help in their journeys as lifelong learners. This class includes a laboratory (lab) component. Student Learning Outcomes: * Apply the scientific method to test hypotheses by performing laboratory experiments or simulations. * Explain the interactions of humans and the environment with regard to levels of biological organization ranging from the atom to the biosphere. * Compare living and non-living entities. * Identify pre and post Darwin era evolution findings. * Deconstruct organic and inorganic chemistry, showing patterns and interrelationships of biophysical systems. * Recognize names and functions of cellular structures including organelles, membranes and membrane proteins. * Determine how osmosis, diffusion, and active transport relate to cellular function. * Deconstruct cellular respiration, photosynthesis, mitosis and meiosis. * Apply the laws and tools of Mendelian genetics to determine pedigree, and genotype/phenotype probability. * Summarize the impact of biotechnology on society and the environment. * Relate basic biological concepts to everyday observations and problems. * Discover the influence of cell and molecular biology on institutions, the environment, and natural resource challenges.
