Official course description: Biology 101 is an introduction to biology at the college level that is intended to serve both majors and non-majors. It is assumed that students in this class do not have a great deal of practice with biology and that any prior experience is likely to be several years ago. Biol 101 students are expected to take a very active role in their learning by completing readings and homework before and after class and coming to class ready to participate directly with peers and through in-class technology. In this highly structured course, we have evidence that every student can achieve if they are motivated to be an active learner!
