1 Department: Science and Technology Date: February 3, 2012 I. Course Prefix and Number: BIO 122 Course Name: General Biology II Course Syllabus Credit Hours and Contact Hours: 4 Credit hours and 5 Contact Hours Catalog Description including pre- and co-requisites: A study of evolutionary concepts and survey of taxonomic levels of organization (domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species). Emphasis will be on anatomical/physiological adaptations, life history traits and ecology of representative organisms. Prerequisite: Successful completion of BIO 121. II. Course Outcomes and Objectives Student Learning Outcomes: Students will: demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of evolution and systematics; interpret evolutionary theory as a unifying concept in taxonomic classification, utilize evolutionary theory to explain biodiversity and speciation, explain life history traits and ecological interactions of various taxonomic levels of organization in reference to evolutionary principles, utilize evolutionary, taxonomic, and biodiversity concepts in related problem solving collaborate in lab, design laboratory experiments by applying concepts to solve problems, analyze data and form conclusions to be presented in written laboratory reports using the CSE format improve and revise drafts of laboratory reports written using the CSE format. Relationship to Academic Programs and Curriculum: General Biology II (BIO 122) can be applied toward the fulfillment of the science requirement for the Liberal Arts Associate in Science degree program. This course is required for the Biotechnology Associate in Science, Natural Resource Conservation Law Enforcement Associate in Applied Science, the Natural Resources Conservation Associate in Applied Science, the Environmental Studies Associate in Science, and the Fisheries Technology Associate in Applied Science degree programs. The course is approved for SUNY Gen Ed Credit in the Natural Science knowledge and skill area. 1

2 College Learning Outcomes Addressed by the Course: X writing X computer literacy oral communications ethics/values X reading X citizenship mathematics global concerns X critical thinking X information resources III. Instructional Materials and Methods Types of Course Materials: Required Textbook: Campbell Biology: Concepts & Connections, custom ed. for Finger Lakes Community College, by Reece, J.B. et al. (Taken fron: Biology: Concepts & Connections, 7 th ed., by Reece, J.B. et al.) Required Lab Book: Biology 122 Lab Manual. Published in-house at Finger Lakes Community College. Methods of Instruction (e.g. Lecture, Lab, Seminar ): Three hours of lecture and two hours of laboratory per week. IV. Assessment Measures (Summarize how the college and student learning outcomes will be assessed): Objective format exams with short answer items will assess understanding of evolutionary principles and the taxonomic classification of life s biodiversity. Laboratory reports will assess the ability to summarize knowledge, apply scientific reasoning, analyze data, interpret results, evaluate experimental design, and communicate understanding of evolutionary principles through reports written using the CSE format. Revision of laboratory reports will assess the ability to self-evaluate and improve written communication. Laboratory assignments will assess literacy of computer-based graphing and bioinformatics at the basic level. Homework assignments incorporating current biological topics of societal importance will assess readiness to participate in discussion reinforcing the moral, ethical and civic responsibility in the conservation of biodiversity. 2
