HON 1600 - Leadership in Biological Issues and Inquiry


4 cr. 6 hr. Day course offered in the Fall.

This course will address current issues such as population growth, environmental concerns, genetic testing, the human genome mapping project, and the spread and control of disease. Each of these topics requires a clear understanding of the scientific research, mathematical principles and technological advances behind these biological questions. A case study approach and investigative activities that use laboratory experiments and computer simulations in concert with more traditional presentations will provide the focus for addressing these topics. These investigations will illustrate biological concepts while engaging the students in problem solving, planning, decision making and group discussions. SMT, Q, LAB
