Welcome to Biology 1510 for Fall 2016!
Select course readings from the menus above by Module:
- Molecules and Metabolism
- Genes and Genomes
Lecture materials can be downloaded from t-square
Instructions for the group video project will be available later in the term.
View these videos for ideas on what makes an engaging video. As you watch, consider the elements that make each video engaging and how you could use those elements to explain evidence-based concepts (which is one of the goals of this project after all!)
Examples of highly rated and high-scoring group project videos from previous semesters of 1510 and 1520.
Fun Science: Light
Vi Hart: Hexaflexagons
Evolution: It’s a Thing – Crash Course Biology #20 (This one is long, but you’ll get the idea after 5 minutes if you are time-limited.)
The Machine is Us/ing Us
