Biology 10

This BIO10 course is offered in a HYBRID format.  What does this mean?  It means the course is taught both synchronously and asynchronously.

  • Asynchronous Portion is the part of the course that is done at home on your own schedule. Each week you do your work any days/ any times. Just be mindful of weekly deadlines.
    • Weekly, prerecorded video lessons are available each week on canvas.  View them from home or where ever you want.
    • Each video lesson has embedded quiz questions.  So be sure to not miss any video lessons or you'll miss these points.
    • Homework and reading assignments are also done from home.
  • Synchronous Portion is the part of the course that is on campus, face to face.
    • Students are required to attend one lab per week on campus.
    • Download the weekly lab work onto your device or print it so that you can participate with your peers in lab
    • Lab work is found in each weekly module on canvas.


  • Didn't take High School Biology?
  • Took a Bio class years and years ago and can't remember much?
  • Don't want to major in biology but you need a GE class to get your AA degree?
  • A little nervous to take a science class and want something that is introductory?

Well, if you've answered yes to any of these questions, then you should consider signing up for my Bio 10 class. In class we have three rules:

  1. Learn.
  2. Help others learn.
  3. Have fun.

  • The organization of life
  • Parts of the cell
  • Cancer
  • Stem cell research
  • Global warming

  • Genetic diseases and more.

You won't be an expert at the end of this course, but you might just decide that you'd like to become one!
