Inver Hills Community College

BIOL 1120 - Exploring Biology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
Critical Thinking (02)
Introduces non-majors to important biological concepts. This course serves as the prerequisite for Anatomy and Physiology I (BIOL 2201) and Microbiology (BIOL 2205 and 2305). The course emphasizes the molecular level of biology and Darwinian evolution as the unifying theme of biology with emphasis on cell structure and function, cell transport, energy transfers, and genetics. Lab exercises will include the design and conduction of scientific experiments, data analysis, microscopy, cell biology, genetics, and ecology. Students will gain hands-on experience in the safe handling and use of living and preserved organisms as well as laboratory instruments and equipment.

BIOL 1100 - Introduction to Biology - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
This course presents biology as a series of fundamental concepts, all focusing on the theme of the unity and diversity of life. It examines four broad topics: genetics (including Mendelian inheritance, mitosis, meiosis and molecular genetics), evolution (Darwin's theory, evidence of evolution and the history of life, including humans), organismal biology (the classification, diversity, and evolutionary history of prokaryotes and eukaryotes), and ecology (energy flow, nutrient cycling, ecosystems and bio-geography) and conservation biology. The course includes two hours of laboratory instruction per week.

BLGY 1351 - General Biology I - 4 credits
Natural Science (03)
People/Environment (10)
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.
