Overview[ edit ] Definitions of complexity often depend on the concept of a confidential " system " — a set of parts or elements that have relationships among them differentiated from relationships with other elements outside the relational regime. Many definitions tend to postulate or assume that complexity expresses a condition of numerous elements in a system and numerous forms of relationships among the elements. However, what one sees as complex and what one sees as simple is relative and changes with time. Warren Weaver posited in two forms of complexity:
One year of general biology, including general botany; Corequisite: BOT L A study of the origin, structure and function of the principal cells, tissues and organs of the vascular plants with emphasis on the angiosperms.
BOT A laboratory examination of the major taxa of vascular plants. Focuses on systematics, life history strategies and the ecology of both phytoplankton and benthic marine plant communities. BOT A review of laboratory and field techniques for research of the biology and ecology of marine plants, including algal identification and the determination of primary productivity.
Principles of plant-environment interactions. BOT Statistics and hypothesis testing powerpoint presentation of plant water economy, photosynthesis, respiration, growth and reproduction, conducted in the laboratory, greenhouse and the field. BSCL,L This course covers the cell biological aspects established in plant anatomy, plant physiology, plant growth and development, plant taxonomy, plant biochemistry and plant molecular biology.
Emphasis is on experimental approaches used to understand these processes at the molecular level. A discussion of model organisms and cell types is included.
Evolution, anatomy, physiology, genetics, reproduction, and ecology are stressed. Lectures and discussions also demonstrate how biological knowledge is relevant to social, economic environmental and philosophical problems.
This is a General Education course. BSC Laboratory investigation of biological knowledge relevant to social, economic, environmental and philosophical problems. This course is research intensive RI.
BSC L A comprehensive treatment of biological principles, including the scientific method, evolution and natural selection, cell biology, energy transformation, reproduction, development, genetics and molecular biology.
BSC An introduction to general laboratory procedures to demonstrate the basic principle of biology. Biodiversity BSC 3 credits Corequisite: BSC L An introduction and survey of organismal diversity, including fungi, protists, plants and animals. Phylogenetic relationships, evolutionary mechanisms, and ecological processes are emphasized.
Origins of life and human evolution. BSC A survey of the diversity of eukaryotic organisms. Anatomy and Physiology 1 BSC 3 credits A study of structure and physiology from the cellular to the system levels in the human body, including integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous and endocrine.
Anatomy and Physiology 2 BSC 3 credits A study of the structure and functions of the following systems in the human body: Life of a Biologist BSC 1 credit This course introduces students to careers in biological sciences including the research path.
Students receive training on how to find jobs, internships, research opportunities and on how to read scientific papers. Lectures address the value of biodiversity, the current state of biodiversity, threats to biodiversity and what has and can be done to stem the loss of biodiversity.
By application only and permission of instructor This course is the first course in the program called Biological Research. Students apply and are accepted to this program before being permitted to register for the course.
The course introduces students to research in biological fields. It also facilitates the matching of students to research faculty by promoting seminars and trains the students in ethics and intellectual property of ideas.
BSC This course is intended for undergraduates to experience lab research while working on their own independent project and presenting it in the form of a graded proposal and public presentation. This is NOT an honors-level course. BSC or BSC An in-depth examination of current theories of aging, molecular pathways modulating aging and major discoveries about aging in mammals and in different model organisms, including yeast, C.
MCB A consideration of chemical, viral and physical oncogenic agents; genetics and host factors; immunological response to neoplasia; chemotherapy. Permission of instructor The student works closely with a research mentor to conduct research and inquiry in biological sciences.
The requirements for the course and the criteria for evaluation are agreed upon by the research mentor and the student.
BSC with minimum grade of "B," admission to Biology Honors Program and permission of instructor Supervised independent research for students in the Biology Honors program. Must earn an "A" to receive Biology Honors Distinction. Requires preparation of a written paper and presentation of results at a departmental seminar.Test Statistics The stats program works out the p value either directly for the statistic you're interested in (e.g.
a correlation), or for a test statistic that has a relationship with the effect statistic.A test statistic is just another kind of effect statistic, one that is easier for statisticians and computers to handle. Common test statistics are t, F, and chi-squared. Charles E.

Hypothesis Testing - Hypothesis Testing Example: Test the performance of two lists in terms of response rates Sample (1,) from the first list provides a response rate of % Sample | PowerPoint PPT presentation | free to view. Summary. You can do most, maybe all of your statistics using a spreadsheet such as Excel.
Here are some general tips. Introduction. If you're like most biologists, you can do all of your statistics with spreadsheets such as Excel. Hypothesis Testing. LIR Lecture #3 January 30, Topics of the Day. A. Our Fundamental Problem Again: Learning About Populations from Samples B.
