|As an On-line Human Biology student,
you have the unique opportunity to learn at your own pace and learn
at the time thatís most convenient for you. We
will study many aspects of Human Biology, including Cell Biology,
Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Forensics, Microbiology, Forensic
Science, Anatomy and Physiology, and Disease. See the syllabus
for a weekly breakdown of what we'll cover this year.
This course covers the same
material as regular Human Biology. However,
the activities in which you participate are different. A lot of
time is spent on the computer doing your own investigating and
projects. You will use an interactive tutorial CD to help you
learn the material and take practice quizzes. You will be reading
on your own, so reading skills are essential to your success in the
course. Other essential skills include time management and comfort
using the computer. Questions with
homework and projects can be emailed to the instructor.
We meet weekly during lab periods where fun and challenging labs
are completed (for example, Forensic Science, Cloning,
Urinalysis, and Blood Typing).
You will also play the role of Doctor or Researcher and
solve disease case studies. Interesting
documentaries and videos will occasionally be viewed. Quizzes and
Exams are given weekly, either on-line or in class.
course is UC approved and is articulated with Miramar Community College
(Bio 131). You can earn 4 units of college credit, transferrable to
CSU or UC.
