As a part of Biology 1110, students are given ten questions from
several chapters of the text. The text location for answers to these questions are
identified by page number. Students are given extra credit for completing these. (See
appended example of Chapter 4). These opting for the Honors Course will substitute two
questions designated as critical thinking. (The answers will be removed but given to them
upon submission of their written answers.)
Our campus nature trail is bordered by numerous botanical species,
birds, and fungi. Some of the botanical specimens have been imported to the trail from
Some of our laboratory sessions for Biology 1110 have exercises
redundant of high school courses. An example is the first wee where the first laboratory
exercise is devoted to the microscope and its use. These laboratory exercises should be
identified and the Honors students exempted from them. As a substitution the honors
students will have the opportunity to become acquainted with the nature trail. This would
include learning to identify most of the species adjacent to the nature trail. Working
with biology instructors the student will be required to prepare and conduct a tour for
Earth Day activities.
A written report for the semester will be submitted. The report
- The variety of trees adjacent to the trail and the total number of
- Recommendations for the physical improvement of the trail.
- Recommendations for better utilization of the course for educational
- Recommendations for better utilization by the community.
