1 BIO 182 General Biology (Majors) II with Lab (Title change ONLY Oct. 2013) Course Package Modification Approved February 23, 2005 Modified April 3, 2009

2 COURSE INFORMATION New Course Course Modification to an existing course Title General Biology II Number BIO 182 Catalog Course Description Four Hours Credit. This course deals with the current classification, structure and life-history of organisms. The structure and function of human organ systems will also be examined in detail. Additionally, the evolutionary forces and ecological stimuli for patterns of adaptation will also be explored. Laboratory experiences will provide students with an appreciation of the tremendous diversity seen in the living world. Credit hours 4 Lecture 3 Lab hours 3 hours Prerequisites BIO 181 Identify any risk None management issues. Explain the proposed modifications, if applicable. This modification eliminates the prerequisite of BIO 181 and allows students to take the BIO 181/182 courses out of sequence. Contact person(s) Dan Lara, Jan Parrot, Jeff Kingsbury, Tom McKinney, Don Plantz, and Kris Hanson. Date 02/18/2005 Effective date of changes Summer 2005 Is there a similar course in the college bank? Articulation: Is this course or an equivalent offered at other two- and fouryear universities in AZ? Yes NO If yes, identify: BIO 181/182 Yes No If yes, identify the college, subject, prefix, number, and title: All Arizona Colleges and Universities; General Biology II; BIO 182 Writing Across the Curriculum Rationale: Mohave Community College firmly supports the idea that writing can be used to

3 improve education; students who write in their respective content areas will learn more and retain what they learn better than those who don t. Courses in the core curriculum have been identified as Writing Across the Curriculum courses. Suggested minimum standards for the Writing Across the Curriculum component are as follows: 1. The writing assignments should total words. For example, a single report which is 1500 words in length could fulfill the requirement, or a series of essay questions and short papers (example: four -375 word assignments) which total 1500 words could meet the requirement. 2. The writing component will represent at least 10% of a student s final grade in the course. Is this a course identified as a Writing Across the Curriculum course? Yes No MOHAVE COMMUNITY COLLEGE COURSE OUTLINE (To be attached to New Course Adoption forms for new courses and to be on file in the Vice President s office, Campus Deans office, and Division Chairs or individual instructor s office.) Prepared by: T. McKinney/J. Parrott Date: 11/17/00 A. Identifications: 1. Subject Area: Biology 2. Course Number & Title: BIO 182 General Biology (Majors) 3. Catalog Description: (Begin with credit hours, lecture hours, lab hours, prerequisite followed by description. The description should include broad content areas, performance and/or learning outcomes, and any program specific recommendations useful for advisement purposes.) 4 credits/3 lecture/3 lab. Prerequisite: BIO 181 or permission of instructor. This course is a continuation of BIO 181 and deals with the current classification, structure, and life history of organisms. Evolutionary forces and ecological stimuli for patterns of adaptation will also be examined. Laboratory experiences will provide students with an appreciation and knowledge of the tremendous diversity seen the living world. B. Methodology: (Check below) Discretion of instructor

4 X_ Program specific methodology described below The instructional outline indicates topics that should be common to all sections of BIO 182. Optional units that may be included are vertebrate anatomy and animal behavior. The laboratory experiences should include metric measurements, microscope skills, basic cell structure, and an opportunity to demonstrate use of scientific methods. If dissection was not incorporated into laboratory in BIO 181, it is required in this semester. C. Instructional Materials: (Indicate text(s) and software used.) Required All instructors must use Raven, Peter H. and George B. Johnson Biology, 8th Ed. WCB McGraw-Hill Publishers Instructor s Option Materials approved for use in a course such as lab books Instructor s choice Wachtmeister, Hans F.E. and Larry J. Scott Encounters with Life, General Biology Laboratory Manual Morton Publishers Instructor developed laboratory materials D. Instructional Outline: (Include an outline of major learning outcomes, or course competencies, supported by specific learning objectives. Major learning outcomes must be assessable. Specific learning objectives are supporting skills and knowledge that lead to major learning outcomes.) I. Evolution A. Distinguish between microevolution and macroevolution B. List the evidence for macroevolution that supports Darwin s theory of evolution. C. Define species in terms of reproduction and niche. D. Know which primate characteristics encouraged their intellectual development over other mammals. II. II. Organisms A. Describe taxonomic hierarchy and the six kingdom classification system. B. Define the fundamental differences between eubacteria and archaebacteria. C. Explain the general evolution of the three most specialized eukaryotic kingdoms. D. Differentiate between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. E. Discuss why the protists are the most diverse eukaryotic kingdom. F. Explain why the fungi are not classified with the plants and how they are fundamentally different from other living organisms. G. Describe the adaptations that were necessary for the plants to become dominant terrestrial organisms. H. Differentiate between the vascular and nonvascular plants. I. Explain the significance of the flower and fruit characteristic of the angiosperms. J. Define structure and function of roots, stems, and leaves in vascular plants. K. Define characteristics used to classify animals: symmetry, complexity, organization of embryonic cell layers, segmentation. L. Identify major external features of arthropods that distinguish them from other animal phyla. Organisms (continued) M Define principal characteristics of chordates. N. List the major characteristics possessed by all vertebrates.

5 O. Discuss the characteristics required to evolve a terrestrial form of life from an aquatic one. P. Explain how vertebrate cells are organized into tissues, organs and organ systems. III. IV. Ecology A. Describe characteristics of growth, distribution, and survivorship for a population. B. Discuss interactions within communities: competition, symbiotic relationships, predator-prey cycles and patterns of succession. C. Describe the components of an ecosystem. D. Explain what an ecological pyramid represents. E. Discuss biogeochemical cycles. F. Identify the components of a food chain-food web. G. Define the relationship of one trophic level with another in terms of energy and biomass. Laboratory Skills A. Demonstrate proper use of safety rules. B. Recognize common laboratory equipment. C. Use metric measurements when appropriate. D. Demonstrate proper use of compound microscope. E. Evaluation: (Describe criteria, conditions, and instruments used for performance assessment as determined by program area. Include exit assessment and writing across the curriculum component if applicable.) The instructor will determine how Writing Across the Curriculum is incorporated into the course requirements. Instructor discretion will determine appropriate evaluation methods for lecture and laboratory activities.
