Science Curriculum

Biology 222 Anatomy and Histology
Inquiry-based study of functional gross anatomy and histology. Laboratory emphasizes dissection to understand mammalian organization. Fresh material is the basis for some labs. Student groups dissect and present non-mammalian vertebrates. Three hours of class and three hours of laboratory. (Oral Presentations.) Prerequisite, 101 and 102, or 115, or consent of instructor. Maximum enrollment, 18. Miller.
Leadership Skills Developed:  Making effective presentations; Giving feedback; Working with others towards shared goals; Taking responsibility; Diagnosing problems

Biology 333 Vertebrate Development
Developing anatomy emphasized with integration of molecular aspects of embryogenesis. Students prepare and present selected topics. Laboratory emphasizes microscopy and analytical skills using amphibian, avian and mammalian developmental anatomy with selected projects and observation of live embryos. Three hours of class and three hours of laboratory. (Oral Presentations.) Prerequisite, 101 and 102, or 115, or consent of instructor. Maximum enrollment, 18. Miller.
Leadership Skills Developed:  Making effective presentations; Giving feedback; Working with others towards shared goals; Taking responsibility; Diagnosing problems

Chemistry 125 Principles of Chemistry in the Context of Health & Environmental Chemistry
Intended for students with strong preparation in chemistry and high motivation, the course explores central principles in the context of current issues, including health, the environment and public policy. A discovery-based lab component addresses analytical and chemical approaches to environmental chemistry. (Quantitative and Symbolic Reasoning.) Discussion-based course centered on the unifying concepts in chemistry and the use of those concepts to develop critical-thinking skills. Three hours of class and three hours of laboratory. Maximum enrollment, 24. Elgren.
Leadership Skills Developed:  Writing clearly and concisely; Working with others toward shared goals; Diagnosing problems; Setting objectives; Asking powerful questions; Advocating one's viewpoint; Making effective presentations

Environmental Studies 150 Environmental Science
An introduction to environmental science. Emphasis on scientific understanding of the causes and implications of, and potential solutions for, problems that result from human interactions with the environment. Current environmental problems examined from an ecological perspective. (Same as Biology 150.) T Elgren.
Leadership Skills Developed:  Writing clearly and concisely; Asking powerful questions; Advocating one's viewpoint; Making effective presentations
