Introduction to the unifying principles of biology at the levels of organization from molecules through cells.  The main topics include biochemistry and bioenergetics, cell structure and physiology, and Mendelian and molecular genetics.  A laboratory, emphasizing planning, performing, and presenting experiments, meets once each week. Students may take BIO 111 with either BIO 112 or BIO 114 to complete biology introductory course requirements.

Satisfies the Natural Science requirement.
 

Prerequisites
Students with credit for BIO 113 may not enroll in BIO 111.

Fall 2020 - Sections A&B

This is the fall 'hybrid' course option within the 111/113 introductory series courses. Hybrid was chosen to facilitate VISA compliance for international students. The evening class and lab time were chosen to maximize the potential for students within US time zones. If you are interested in the electronic version of the textbook please email kabernd@davidson.edu , I am working on making it available at no cost to you. Class meetings will include larger whole class discussions which will be taped. The Tuesday sessions will be used for small group meetings with me. Group work may be done synchronous or asynchronously. During the first two weeks, multiple activities are planned in the laboratory (on M T and W). Office hours (no appointment/ drop in,  in person or by Zoom) are tentatively scheduled Thursdays and will be adjusted as needed so everyone can have access. A majority of the technology will utilize Moodle, Zoom, email.

Spring 2021 - All Sections
This is a 'hybrid' course option within the 111/113 introductory course choices. Hybrid was chosen to facilitate VISA compliance for international students. The evening class and lab time were chosen to maximize the potential for students within US time zones. In the fall the vast majority of meetings were remote. The 'location' of spring meetings will depend on COVID in the area. Class meetings will include larger whole class discussions which will be taped. The Tuesday sessions will be used for small team meetings with me. Team work during 'lab' may be done synchronous or asynchronously. During the first two weeks, multiple activities are planned in the laboratory (on M T and W). Office hours (no appointment/ drop in, in person or by Zoom) are tentatively scheduled Thursdays and will be adjusted as needed so everyone can have access.
