This course is (and has always been) an online presentation. The controlling site is the UVM Blackboard course web site. In order to participate in this course, the student must purchase an eText with an associated Laboratory exercise program. Exercises will cover many of the same topics as the companion Biol 003 course. These will include scientific method, chemistry, cells, body systems, genetics and evolution.
The eText/program component required is: “Human Biology” by Mader and Windelspecht with “Virtual Labs – Biology” published by McGraw/Hill.
On the McGraw/Hill lab site students will preform approximately 26 separate lab exercise simulations and complete a series of companion quizzes. A final exam will be built into the UVM Blackboard web site for the course. The final grade will come from the demonstrated facility with the simulations, the results of the quizzes, and the grade on the final exam.
