    About This Course

    The course is equivalent to one semester of college level Biology and focuses on the understanding of information collection and interpretation, hypothesis analysis, and principles and processes of biology. This course will address fundamental biological principles using the two cornerstones of modern biology: genetics and evolution. Elementary chemistry, cell theory, reproduction, and development will also be covered. The emphasis is on biological chemistry, cell structure and function, cellular metabolism, genetics. Introduction to the basic principles of modern biology, including biomacromolecules, bioenergetics, cell structure, homeostasis, evolution, and ecological relationships.

    Course Objectives

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • The three major areas of biological sciences: molecular and cellular biology, organismal biology and population biology.
    • Define the facts, principles and processes of biology.
    • Explain how to collect and interpret information.
    • Determine how one hypothesizes from the information collected and how a conclusion is identified and generates further predictions.
    • Discuss how science is a human endeavor and with that comes along social consequences.

  • About Instructor

    Manal
    Manal El Saati graduated high school in 1990 with honors and was granted a full scholarship from the Harriris Foundation in Lebanon to further her education in sciences. She graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Biology from the American University of Beirut in 1994. But her love for knowledge and education did not stop there. She continued her studies in the same university and achieved a higher degree in education where she mastered the skills of teaching college students to succeed in sciences. She taught Anatomy and Physiology for 10 years. She worked as a lab instructor in the Lebanese university for 4 years. She was a member of the Lebanese committee of education. She compiled many science exams and corrected official tests. She got married in 1999 and came to the United States with her family in 2008. She joined our instructor staff in 2009. She teaches A&P, Microbiology, and Biologogy. Her main goal is to transcend her knowledge to her students and see them succeed in pursing their dreams.
