"BIO G 105–106(1105–1106) Introductory
105, fall; 106, spring. 4 credits each
semester; 2 credits by permission of
instructor. Limited to 200 students. Taking
105–106 in sequence preferred but not
required. May not be taken for credit after
BIO G 101–104 or 109–110. No admittance
after first week of classes. First lec of fall
semester R Aug. 23, 9:05; additional study
and lab. D. Campbell.
Designed primarily for biology majors,
preprofessionals, and other students who
desire a challenging, broad introduction to
fundamental concepts of biology. Cell biology,
physiology, anatomy, and biochemistry are
strongly emphasized in the fall semester. The
spring semester covers genetics, development,
ecology, evolution, behavior, and the diversity
of organisms. Students who plan to
concentrate in anatomy and physiology
should consider taking this course because of
the strong emphasis on organismal biology.
Because some testing involves the use of
predissected specimens, students who object
to dissections should take BIO G 101–104.
The course uses an autotutorial format and
offers considerable flexibility in scheduling.
Completion of the course requires mastery of
a group of core units. Testing on these units is
primarily by oral examination. Students who
elect to take the course must be able to meet
deadlines. Four formal laboratory sessions are
offered each semester; additional laboratory
work is included in the core units. Evaluation
is based on written reports on experimental
work, practical exams, and a comprehensive
There probably isn't a weekly lecture other than the first one during which the professor introduces the course. Personally, I didn't take the autotutorial version.
