Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.
This course contains classroom lecture content for the instructor to deliver an Introduction to Biology (BIOL 1010 ) course. Two books were curated and used to develop content for the lecture modules. Both books, Biology 2e and Concepts in Biology, are available in the OpenStax OER platform. The lab components, as links, were curated from Biology OER hosted by the City University of New York. Lab components are found in the Open Educational Resources for General Biology I and Molecular & Cellular Biology resource.
The laboratory activities on this page can be used with the TBR BIOL 1010 OER course modules. Refer to the TBR BIOL 1010 OER course syllabus to match laboratory activities with course modules.
