Cycles of Life: Exploring Biology gives students a breathtaking view of the origin and nature of life, from the simplest single-celled forms to complex plants, animals and human beings.
As an introductory biology course, it teaches the fundamentals of biology as well as how biology is applied in the real world. This course examines the scientific method and considers both its promises and limitations. Students readily develop an understanding of the basic concepts of biology, the characteristic elements, processes, and features common to all life forms, the nature and workings of the human body, and the vital role humans play in the total ecology of the earth. The twenty-six 30-minute programs provide a dramatic, educational, and inspiring journey through the web of life that connects all living creatures.
