Biology 306: Measurement and Instrumentation.
Schmalhofer, Ed; And Others
A nine-week prerequisite course for biology students is presented in this monograph. A course outline is presented to provide the student with some idea of the topics and activities that he will encounter. A suggested pretest is included in the monograph which covers 32 objectives. Three Learning Activity Packages are presented. Package A - Introduction to Biology - includes suggested films, readings, lectures and written assignments to develop the meaning of biology, the history and importance of biology, the branches of biology and scientific methods. Package B - Introduction to Instrumentation - presents laboratory equipment and its use with greatest emphasis on optical instruments. Learning Package C - Introduction to Metric Measurement - includes reading assignments, experiences in measurement, and quizzes on this particular concept, as well as on the use of the Bunsen Burner and the thermometer. Four enrichment activities and four remedial activities are suggested and developed. Each of the Learning Activity Packages has 10-12 behavioral objectives. These are itemized and presented for the student and constitute the basis for all pre- and post-test items. (Author/EB)
