This course is a broad survey of biology with special emphasis on its relevance in our everyday lives
(Topics in the Class Schedule). This course is primarily designed to serve non-science majors but may
also serve as a prerequisite for other science courses. I invite and encourage you to participate in the
lectures by asking questions and providing examples from your own experiences. Please also feel
welcome to provide me with feedback about the course as it progresses.
