BIOL& 213 - Majors Plant Credits: 6
Covers the phylogenetic relationships of flowering plants, photosynthesis, plant structure and function, water and mineral nutrition, control of growth and development, and animal and plant ecology. Presents topics using a problem solving approach to plant biology through observation and discussion. Stresses independent laboratory work. Successful students apply their understanding of the principles taught to new situations.
Enrollment Requirement: BIOL& 211 with a grade of 2.0 or higher; or instructor consent.
Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science or Lab Science
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Identify phylogentic relationships of Kingdom Plantae and connections to other Kingdoms.
- Identify plants to the level of species.
- Identify plant cell types and their function.
- Identify and evaluate water and mineral nutrition of plants in relation to structure, function.
- Demonstrates knowledge of physiological and morphological processes associated with growth and development.
- Collect, summarize, analyze, and correctly interpret data from field and laboratory studies.
- Apply class knowledge to basic ecological and environmental situations.
- Apply their understanding of principles taught to new situations.
Recognize how scientists use the Scientific Method to guide their inquiry, generate hypotheses, experimental design, reasoning, and draw conclusions based on empirical data.
- Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
