BIOL 300    The Foundations of Biology    3 Units

Prerequisite: None.
Advisory: Eligible for ENGRD 310 or ENGRD 312 AND ENGWR 300; OR ESLR 340 AND ESLW 340.
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B2; IGETC Area 5B
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC
Description: This course for non-science majors covers basic biological principles and how they relate to humans. Topics include an introduction to the philosophy of science and basic cell chemistry, structure, and physiology. An introduction to basic genetics (transmission and molecular) as well as some biotechnology principles are discussed. Additionally, human body systems, evolution, reproduction and development, as well as ecology and human impacts on the environment are addressed.

Schedule: Full Term, Aug 24-Dec 19

BIOL 430    Anatomy and Physiology    5 Units

Prerequisite: CHEM 305, 309, or 400 with a grade of "C" or better; AND ENGWR 101 or ESLW 320 with a grade of "C" or better, or placement into transfer-level English through the assessment process.
Advisory: Eligible for ENGRD 310 or ENGRD 312; OR ESLR 340
General Education: AA/AS Area IV; CSU Area B2; CSU Area B3; IGETC Area 5B; IGETC Area 5C
Course Transferable to UC/CSU
Hours: 54 hours LEC ; 108 hours LAB
Description: This lecture and laboratory course in human anatomy and physiology emphasizes the integration of structure and function. The underlying basis of the course is built on the study of anatomical terminology, cells, and tissues. The course expands this study into the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. Laboratory study is enhanced by the microscopic study of tissues, examination of anatomical models, and the dissection of preserved material. Laboratory study is also enhanced by the examination of prosected whole cadavers as well as prosected head, torso, upper and lower extremities, and individual organs. Laboratory activities also include both wet-lab experiments and computer simulations. Both BIOL 430 and BIOL 431 must be taken to complete the study of all major body systems. (Part of C-ID BIOL 115S)

NOTE: In order to allow for us to have dissection/wet labs, there will be two changes to the normal MW class meeting times and location. In both cases, class will be held on Friday from 10:00AM to 2:30PM in room 415 on the ARC main campus. These Friday classes will take place on 9/6 and 11/22 and will take the place of that week's regularly scheduled Wednesday class. No class will be held on Wednesday 9/4 and Wednesday 11/20.

NOTE: We might meet on the main ARC campus one Tuesday or Thursday around late October because Inderkum hosts a "Back to School" night for parents.
Field trip required: Instead of meeting at Natomas Thursday, Dec 5th there will be a mandatory class on the ARC MAIN CAMPUS on Fri. Dec 6th for lecture/lab worksheets, and sheep brain/eyeball dissections 10am - 2:35pm.
In addition, there might be an optional cadaver tour/viewing to help you learn your muscles in early November. Do not plan to attend that if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
