his Biology course provides a general introduction to the science and explores aspects of life at both microscope and macroscopic levels. Some of the topics in the course are Molecules in Cells, Patterns of Inheritance, Prokaryotes and Protists, Circulation in Animals, Plant Nutrition and Transport, and Population Dynamics.
The class will meet for two hours each week. Class sessions will reinforce and expand upon concepts found in the text. Part of each class will be set aside for answering questions related to the course assignments and to address any difficulties that students are having with the material. The Biology course contains a laboratory component which gives the students the opportunity to investigate in more detail the topics discussed in the course. This course will include a combination of Demonstration Labs, Virtual Labs, and Labs performed by students at home.
Live class sessions include interactive problem solving to ensure understanding and mastery. Students collaborate in small groups using writing tablets to work through problems under the guidance of the instructor.

Writing Tablet with Stylus
Live class sessions include interactive problem solving to ensure understanding and mastery. Students collaborate in small groups using writing tablets to work through problems under the guidance of the instructor. We highly recommend a tablet and stylus combination for ease of writing during these practice sessions. There are many options available in the $30-$50 range and these can be useful in many CLRC classes. Be sure that your tablet is compatible with Zoom.
The labs in this class will include a combination of Demonstration Labs, Virtual Labs, and Labs performed by students at home. Students should purchase the following lab kit from Carolina Kits which includes all needed supplies:
