BIO 101 Week 1 Cell Biology
Option A

Imagine that you are asked to tutor another student on the fundamental concepts of
chemistry, the scientific method, and the differences between a plant cell, an animal cell,
and a bacterial cell.

Create a 4- to 5-page study guide using Microsoft® Word in which you cover the
following:
 How chemical reactions occur in the body.
 The purpose of the scientific method.
 How to develop a hypothesis.
 How to design an experiment using the scientific method.
 The primary structures in plant cells, animal cells, and bacterial cells and the role
of each structure.
 How each cell makes energy for cellular processes. Give a brief overview of each
energy-making process.
 What is unique about each cell type.

Note: You may use the Cellular Processes template to create your study guide or you
may create your own design.

Cite your sources according to APA guidelines. See the Center for Writing Excellence for
more information on using APA style.

BIO 101 Week 2 Genetics and Reproduction
Create at least a 350-word blog post in Microsoft® Word in response to the following
question:

Female copperhead snakes have the ability to reproduce both sexually and asexually. In
your opinion, which method is best for the species in general and why?

Develop your opinion andinclude the following in your post:
 Discuss asexual and sexual reproduction in terms of genetic diversity. How is
meiosis related to genetic diversity?
 Use one of Gregor Mendel's ideas to support your opinion.

Cite your sources according to APA guidelines. See the Center for Writing Excellence for
more information on using APA style.

BIO 101 Week 2 Genetics and Inheritance
Review information on genetic disorders on the National Human Genome Research
Institute Site: http://www.genome.gov/.

Choose a genetic disorder that can be inherited from a parent. Write a 525- to 700-word
paper on the genetic disorder. Include the following in your paper:

Summarize the Chromosomal Theory of Inheritance and how chromosomal
abnormalities can lead to genetic disorders.
 Describe the relationship between chromosomes and DNA.
 Identify an example of a genetic disorder and describe the genetic disorder
including symptoms, impact on quality of life, and life expectancy. How common
is this disorder? Does it run in specific ethnic bloodlines?

Format your paper according to APA guidelines. Review the Academic Writing Guidelines
video and the Center for Writing Excellence for additional guidance on academic writing
and APA style.

BIO 101 Week 3 Late Nite Labs: Population Genetics
Complete the Population Genetics lab in Late Nite Labs

BIO 101 Week 3 Evolution, Biodiversity and HUMANS
Use the resources provided to answer the questions on this
document https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B1q8aRLhQlzuWk13eTJoMW9zcFk

Submit your answers to the questions in a double-spaced word document - APA format
does not apply but your answers must be clear, thorough and accurate. Much of
workshop 3 will be designed to assist you with this assignment.

BIO 101 Week 4 Physiology Test
Imagine you have been asked to teach a small group of your peers about animal organs.

Create 10 multiple-choice questions to test knowledge of the structure and function of
animal organs.

Address the functions of each of the following concepts in your test:
 Differences between asymmetrical, radial symmetry and bilateral symmetry.
 Differences between endotherms and exotherms.
 Definition and examples of epithelial tissue. (provide 1 example)
 Definition and examples of connective tissue. (provide 1 example)
 Definition and examples of muscle tissue. (provide 1 example)
 Definition and examples of nervous tissue. (provide 1 example)

Use the Physiology Test Template to complete this assignment.

BIO 101 Week 4 Structure and Functions of Organs
Identify an organism that lives within 50 miles of your home.

Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper about how the organism has adapted to survive in
their specific environment. Include the following points in your paper:
 Briefly describe the environment (temperature, landscape, food sources, etc.)
and describe the organism's role in the environment. Determine which organism
your chosen organism be most closely related to using a phylogenetic tree.
 Identify the structures and functions of the main organs found in your selected
organism.
 Explain how the organism has evolved physiologically to become suited to its
environment.
 Explain how things would change if the organism were to be transplanted to a
significantly different environment:
 Would their organ system still be as efficient? Why or why not?
 Would the organism survive in this new environment? Why or why not?

Include the diagram and other appropriate pictures in your paper and make sure to
provide a full reference for the images in your reference section.

Format your paper consistent with APA guidelines including references and in-text
citations. Your paper should include a well written introduction and conclusion. Use only
academic research sources.

BIO 101 Week 4 Diet, exercise and sleep journal
Workshop 4 is designed to assist students with this assignment!
You will be required to keep track of your food and beverage intake, exercise and sleep
for 3 days - use any format that is digital (photo of written record), table, outline.

To determine the quality of your diet, you will enter ONE day (the most typical) into this
nutrition analysis tool - https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/foodtracker.aspx and write an
summary of your findings, including possible changes recommended to your diet. If you
find another diet analysis website or app, you are welcome to try it.
 To determine whether or not you are getting adequate exercise, you will use the
tools on this website (scroll down to use all the
features)https://www.supertracker.usda.gov/physicalactivitytracker.aspx.
Summarize your findings in relation to recommentations from this source.
 To determine if you are getting adequate sleep - reed these articles and use them
to analyze your sleep. Summarize your findings - http://www.webmd.com/sleep-
disorders/features/important-sleep-habits#1 - http://www.healthline.com/health/sl
eep-deprivation/effects-on-body - https://sleepfoundation.org/how-sleep-
works/how-much-sleep-do-we-really-need

Submit your journal and analysis in a word document that is double spaced, written in
first person with attention to writing mechanics.

BIO 101 Week 4 Researching A Medical Condition
Resources will be shared during workshop 4 and assistance/work time will be provided.

Students are to choose a medical condition, injury or disease that interests them and
describe the following:
 The organs/tissues affected
 The affects of this condition at the cellular and chemical levels
 The symptoms and methods for diagnosis
 Treatment options, including one promising area of research (using a peer-
reviewed journal article as the information source)
 Means of prevention

Your findings will be submitted in an APA formatted paper with care to explain medical
vocabulary and knowledge that your paper will be run through a plaigiarism checker.

BIO 101 Week 5 Environmental Issue
Identify an environmental issue facing your community.

Imagine that you have been asked to educate the members of your community on this
environmental issue.
Create a 12- to 14-slide presentation about your selected environmental issue. Include
the following in your presentation:
 An overview of your selected issue.
 The effects of human activities on your community and the biosphere and how
this has led to your chosen issue.
 The biotic and abiotic environmental components involved in this issue and how
their interaction has affected the diversity of organisms in your environment.
 How energy and materials flow in your local ecosystem and how this is related to
your selected issue.
 Some actions those in your community can take to diminish the issue.
