Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to:

  1. Apply Scientific inquiry to biological systems
  2. Make a flow chart and describe the evolution of multicellularity: from cell to tissue to organ to organ system
  3. Accurately describe, illustrate, and explain the structure and function of different tissue types
  4. Model homeostasis and demonstrate both positive and negative feedback loops in biological systems
  5. Apply generalized models of homeostasis to new situations
  6. Accurately describe, illustrate and explain the anatomy and physiology of at least 3 of the following 7 organ systems: nutrients, circulation, gas exchange, reproduction and development, signaling, defense, support and locomotion
  7. Compare and contrast how the above systems work in a variety of different organisms.
  8. Evaluate and critique scientific information from various sources for reliability and validity (journals, magazines, newspapers, television, and the internet).
