Biology 11 - Part 1 (BIOL 0861)

BIOL 0861 is the first half of ABE Advanced level Biology. The course provides an introduction to biology from an ecological perspective. Students study evolution; the origin of life; cell biology; viruses, bacteria, protists and fungi; local land and aquatic ecosystems, including native species identification. Field trips are an important part of this course.

Biology 0861 and Biology 0871 can be taken at the same time or in any order. Both Biology 0861 and Biology 0871 are required for completion of ABE Advanced Biology.

Biology 0861 will include a minimum of four labs and two field trips. When combined with Biology 0871 this will meet or exceed the minimum requirement as outlined in the current ABE Articulation Handbook for Advanced Biology.

Field trips and lab requirements are mandated by the BC Provincial Articulation Committee in order to maintain transferability of Biology 0861/0871. Field trips allow students to explore local ecology in order to meet intended learning outcomes such as - Conduct field procedures safely and ethically - Analyze and interpret data collected - Native species identification (see current BC Articulation guide for details).

Prerequisites: Math 10 (VCC MATH 0751, Foundations of Math & Precalculus 10, or equivalent); English 10 or equivalent.

In addition to the class lectures, College Foundations ABE courses offer students tutorials for one-on-one support from instructors.
