DESCRIPTION OF THE COURSE: This course is an introductory course on the functioning of the human body. The course begins with some detail on chemistry, emphasizing the importance of chemistry in the functioning of organisms. This is followed by discussions on cells (the living units) and the tissues that cells can construct. The rest of the course covers several organ systems of the body, including a brief discussion on skin, followed by more detailed discussion on digestive, circulatory, immune, respiratory, urinary, nervous, endocrine and reproductive systems. Additionally, students will be expected to learn a bit about both muscular and skeletal systems on their own (there is a separate muscle/bone test).

TIPS FOR SUCCESS:
This may be the first biology class in some time (perhaps ever for many of you. It is important that you keep a few things in mind so that you may more easily succeed in Biology 1100. First and foremost, if you have questions about any topic, ASK!! There is no better way to learn material that you are in any way confused by than to ask questions. Hopefully the book will provide you what you need, but I can clarify anything you wish to have clarified. Speaking of the book, another way to insure success is to stay ahead in the reading. In other words, come to class prepared. This way you may be able to sit back and listen when I lecture, as you will have already read something on the topics being covered.
