Welcome to Biology 101

Fall 2019


General Biology, BI 101 introduces ecosystems, including biodiversity, species interactions, human impacts, and conservation biology. BI 101 emphasizes the natural history of biodiversity, ecology, and environmental science. Lectures introduce biological themes and research in the context of current issues in science and society. Hands-on laboratories & recitations focus on using organisms and technologies to explore biology and develop skills for lifelong learning. The format is a mixture of lecture, laboratories & recitations, online resources, Biology Journals, and Digital Posts. The two weekly lectures are at 10 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday in LInC 100 (Learning Innovation Center, Arena). Laboratory meets each week for one hour and 50 minutes in 129 WNGR (Weniger Hall) and recitation meets each week for 50 minutes in 127 WNGR (Weniger Hall).

Week #0 (Welcome Week) For both Lab & Recitation the activity will be a 50 minute Flowers activity. It can be helpful to read the activities prior to attending class, especially if you have any concerns about reading skills and vocabulary. There is no need to print this activity because we will be handing them out in class.

All
Biology 101 lectures, laboratories, and recitations meet Thursday and Friday (September 26 & 27) of "Welcome Week." Wednesday labs and recitations do not meet "Welcome Week."

The Biology 101-19 Laboratory Activity Manual is required for all Laboratory and Recitation activities beginning the second week of classes, the week of September 30. The first week's activities are handed out in the activities.

The Final Exam is Friday December 13 at 9:30 a.m. No exam will be given on a date earlier than the scheduled date.

Need to change laboratory/recitation sections? OSU has an online waiting list system. If you are on the waiting list it does not mean that you are in the course or that a seat will become available. Students cannot attend a laboratory/recitation section they are not enrolled in. Additionally, BI101 does not offer overrides or overenroll sections.

Much of the information about this course is also supplied as part of the activity manual purchased at the OSU Beaver Store.
