Liberty BIOL 103 Principles of Biology Laboratory Entire Class


Course Description

Laboratory exercises were selected to demonstrate basic biological concepts. Emphasis is on plant and animal cell chemistry, composition and function, organismal structure and function, biological diversity, and population ecology.

For information regarding prerequisites for this course, please refer to the Academic Course Catalog.


Principles of Biology Laboratory is designed to show the student many of the principles and organisms studied in Principles of Biology (BIOL 101). The Lab will introduce the student to basic techniques which will be used to examine the diversity of God’s creation. Exercises are designed to introduce the student to the scientific method and to have them use it to answer specific questions.

Measurable Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  1. Apply the Scientific Method to conduct lab experiments on biological processes.
  2. Generate lab reports that distinguish data and observations from interpretations.
  3. Describe molecular, cellular, and organismal structures and their functions.
  4. Apply biological methods to taxonomy and to ecological sampling.
  5. Evaluate biblical and materialist explanations for life’s diversity using course observations and biological principles.

General Education Foundational Skill Learning Outcomes: Social and Scientific Inquiry (SSI)

  1. SSI 1: Demonstrate an understanding of the impact of social and/or natural sciences on the world in which we live.
  2. SSI 3: Apply solutions for a social and/or scientific dilemma experienced in society.
  3. SSI 4: Describe how social and/or scientific inquiry equips human beings to be participants in God’s redemptive work

Course Assignment


After reading the Syllabus and Student Expectations, the student will complete the related checklist found in the Course Overview at liberty university.


Discussions are collaborative learning experiences. The student will post a thread of 150 words or fewer that consists of 2 completed tables of data. The student will reply to 2 peers’ threads in 50 words or fewer.


The student will submit a variety of data from the lab kit’s experiments. This assignment aligns with the following FSLOs: SSI 1, SSI 3, SSI 4


Each quiz will be open-book/open-notes and will include 10 multiple-choice questions covering the information studied throughout the specified Modules: Weeks. The student will have 25 minutes to complete each quiz.
