I.    Course Description

This course contains subject matters and topics for inductive activities more than
only for deducto-verificative activities. Through this lecturing, students 1) identifying some biological objects on any level of life organization in around them; 2) finding some biological problems   base on their observation; 3) doing problem solving through scientific methods; 4)
comparing characteristics of an individual to others;  5) understanding principles of classification of organism; 6) Classifying organisms base on certain characteristic;   7) connecting specific characteristic of organism to their environment; 8) Connecting specific structure- function of organism to  specific function of the organism; 9) simulating ratio of phenotype from crossbreeding; 10) understanding basic principles of adaptation on organisms; 11) understanding basic principles of evolution on organism.

II.   Competences

Understanding biology as a knowledge;   Understanding objects and problems of
biology as a science; identifying    unity and diversity of organism; understanding principles of classification of organism; connecting specific characteristic of organism to their environment; Connecting specific structure-function of organism to   specific function of the organism; simulating ratio of phenotype from crossbreeding; understanding basic principles of adaptation on organisms; understanding basic principles of evolution on organism.
