COURSE INFORMATION


Course Description

BI 110. General Biology. 5 hours credit. This course will enable the student to apply basic biological principles to relevant situations in his/her daily life. The student will apply the scientific process to problem solving and deductive reasoning to analyze and interpret observations. This course is not intended for biology majors.


Course Relevance

This general biology course will provide the student with the basic fundamentals about how the scientific process operates and a fundamental understanding of basic concepts of biology. Understanding concepts will help the student make informed political or ethical decisions in which a biological understanding plays an important role.

Learning Outcomes

The intention is for the student to be able to:

Apply basic biological concepts to understand the causes and treatments of genetic disorders, diseases and cancer

Apply the scientific process when describing the results of an experiment done during lab

Evaluate his/her current behavior as it applies to maintaining a positive healthy life style


Learning PACT Statement: Butler prepares students to be principled, productive individuals who are responsible, involved lifelong learners. To accomplish this goal Butler has established a Learning PACT for the skills that learners need during their career and has integrated PACT skill-building activities and assessments through a variety of program coursework, extra curricular activities, and other learning opportunities.

The BCCC Learning PACT consists of:

P = Personal Development Skills

A = Analytical Thinking Skills

C = Communication Skills

T = Technological Skills

The Learning PACT Skills are vital for any adult to function successfully in the ever changing world of the 21st century. Butler expects learners to be full partners in the learning process and as such to assume primary responsibility for their own choices.


Learning PACT Skills that will be developed and documented in this course

Through the student’s involvement in this course, he/she will develop his/ her ability in the following PACT Skills areas:

Analytical Thinking Skills

1. Critical thinking

Through a written paper, the student will demonstrate analysis of causal situation of a particular disease or cancer and evaluate the associated risks and treatments

Through a written report, the student will apply the scientific process to a problem solving situation.

Communication Skills

1. Creation and delivery of messages

Through an oral presentation to the class, the student will present a summary of research on a particular disease or cancer

Personal Development Skills

1. Personal management

Through a series of self-assessment surveys, the student will evaluate his/her ability to maintain a positive personal health


Major Summative Assessment Task(s)

These learning outcomes and the Learning Pact skills will be demonstrated by

Writing a critical analysis of the cause and treatment of a specific disease or cancer (A outcome) shared with the class through an oral presentation (C outcome)

Writing a critique that explains and projects the worth of the series of self-assessments of personal health practices (P outcome)


Student Engagement Expectation
Butler Community College expects students to be engaged in the learning process.  Engaged students 

are motivated, prepared for class, interact inside and outside of class with other students and faculty, and take responsibility for their own learning.


CLASS INFORMATION


Methods of Grading and Evaluation:

The student will be evaluated on the basis of his/her performance on the following:


ABCDF


Class Schedule:

DateLearning Activities


The schedule and procedures in this course are subject to change in the event of extenuating circumstances.


INSTITUTIONAL POLICIES


Attendance: Students are expected to attend all scheduled class and examination meetings. Students are also expected to maintain satisfactory progress in each of the classes in which they are enrolled. Thus, whenever absences become excessive and, in the instructor’s opinion, minimum course objectives cannot be met due to absences, the student may, at the discretion of the instructor, be withdrawn from the course. If a student is withdrawn by the instructor for excessive absences, a grade of “WT” (withdrawn by teacher) will be recorded on his/her permanent record. Instructors are responsible for clearly stating their attendance policy and administrative drop policy in the course syllabus, and it is the student’s responsibility to be aware of those policies.


Procedural Clarifications:

  1. Students should not miss class for any reason other than a college activity or an emergency, as determined by the instructor (i.e., death in the family, health).

  2. Student absences for approved college activities will not accrue as excessive absences.

  3. Students will be allowed to make up work missed as a result of college approved activities.

  4. Students will make up work before the absence for the approved college activity or within one week after returning to class. Students will check with each instructor prior to the absence to arrange for make-up times.

  5. Activity sponsors will publish a timely list of students who will be absent because of an approved college activity.


Academic Honesty: Effective learning may involve differences of opinion and views between the student and faculty. Students are responsible, however, for learning the content of course of study outlined by the instructor, regardless of how the student feels privately. This attainment for content must be reached in an honest and forthright manner. Students who compromise the integrity of the academic process are subject to disciplinary action on the part of the college.

Students who have been accused of violating a standard of honesty may protect themselves with a series of appeal processes and are assured of due process and procedure. A student may appeal faculty and administration decisions concerning academic honesty. The first step is with the Division Dean, who, if necessary, may inform the student of further steps in the procedure. These can include appeals to the Vice President for Student Services and College President if the student deems this necessary.


Violations Include:

  1. Cheating, in any form, whether in formal examinations or elsewhere.

  2. Plagiarism, using the work of others as ones own without assigning proper credit to the source.

  3. Misrepresentation of any work done in the classroom or in preparation for a class.

  4. Alteration of any documents pertaining to academic records.

  5. Disruptive behavior in a course of study or abusiveness toward faculty or fellow students.


Students violating such standards must accept the consequences which may include a failing grade, suspension or dismissal from the class or college.


Incompletes: If a student who has been making a passing grade cannot complete the work in a course due to illness (or other sufficient reason), an instructor, at his/her discretion, may enter an "I" temporarily on the student's record at the end of the term when the final grade roster is submitted. It is the student's responsibility to initiate the verbal or written contract with the instructor. The "I" will change to an "F" if the work is not completed within the first 6 weeks of the following semester (excluding summer), unless an extension of time is granted by the agreement of the appropriate dean and the instructor of the course. The student is entirely responsible for completing the work which will remove the "I."


Disability Services Statement: Anyone needing information concerning special needs should contact your instructor after class or the Disability Services Coordinator, at 322-3321 or 733-3321.
