COURSE PREREQUISITE
:
Biology 40A, 40B and 40C, or equivalent
(a college
chemistry and biology course)
with a grade of C or better.



REQUIRED TEXT,
LABORATORY MANUAL, AND MICROBILOGY LA
B KIT
:

1. The required text for the lecture portion of the course is
Microbiology, an Introduction
,
eighth edition
by
Tortora, Funke, and Case
, San Francisco: Benjamin/Cummings, 2004.

Bring the text to class if at all possible. I will be referring to it of
ten.

Students are responsible for reading material in the text as it relates to the various lecture
topics. It is assumed that such reading will be to clarify and/or to enhance material given
in lecture periods. Examinations will cover lecture material and

any questions sets or
specific reading assignments given.

2. The required text for the laboratory portion of the course is Tortora and also a
laboratory manual (Biology 26 Laboratory Manual, by Doris Spanggord).

The student is expected to read exercises

and answer questions relevant to that reading
before coming to the lab. Material from the reading in the lab manual

is "fair game" for
lab tests including lab
practicals.

A covering must be worn in the laboratory. This may be an old shirt, smock, or la
b coat.
These will be kept in the laboratory throughout the course.

3. You are required to purchase a microbiology lab kit costing $17.50 from the book store.
They are located on the first floor near the candies and pens. Bring a combination lock or
padlo
ck to secure your
kit in a lab locker. You
can purchase a lock at the book
store for
about $6.00.
The bookstore general information number is
408.864.8701

and the
textbook d
epartment

number is 408.864.8455.


COURSE DESCRIPTION
:

Microbiology will introdu
ce you to the diversity of

microorganisms, their role in

nature, and their role in human

health and disease. The

principles you will study in
microbiology are applicable

to all biology

related
professions

including human medicine,

veterinary medicine,

ecol
ogy, and biotechnology.

Lecture periods will be devoted to a consideration of fundamental principles and general
activities of microorganisms with special emphasis given to their medical significance
and control. Aseptic technique will also be stressed. Th
ese will be correlated with
laboratory experiments when possible.



COURSE OBJECTIVES
:


By the end of the course, students will



have a basic understanding of major groups of microorganisms and methods of
physical and chemical control of microbial g
rowth.



be able to differentiate procaryotic and eucaryotic cells.



correctly use the microscope
,
prepare and interpret slides of microorganisms.



demonstrate proper aseptic laboratory technique and proper use of laboratory
apparatus
.



have a good understandin
g of the symptoms, treatment, and control of common
infectious diseases.



be able to explain the mechanisms of pathogenicity and describe nonspecific and
specific immunity.


METHODS OF INSTRUCTION

AND REQUIRED STUDENT PREPARATION
:

The class f
ormat will con
sist of lectures and labs,
class discussions, group activities
,
videos and relevant demonstrations
.



Students
should
preview the lectures and laboratory exercises prior to the classes.
Students are expected to complete lecture or lab ass
ignments on time.

All the home
work
will be explained thoroughly.


COURSE ATTENDANCE
/WITHDRAWAL POLICY
:


Regular attendance is
expected at every meeting. Role
will be taken during each class
meeting. When students

must be absent because of illness or emergencies they

should
contact the instr
uctor in advance. A student may
be dropped for mi
ssing
more than two
absences from laboratory
class meetings.


MAKE
-
UP AND EXTRA CREDITS POLICY
:


Make
-
up examinations will NOT BE
GIVEN. If you miss an exam, with the exception of

the final exams, and have a valid
reason for missing the exam, and inform the instructor the reason for the absence before
the exam, your percent in the class will be calculated on the basis of your total number of
points at the end of the quarter. If yo
u mi
ss a second test
you will receive zero points for
that exam. You will fail the course if you do not take the final exams (both the lab and
lecture).


CLASS CONDUCT POLICY
:

Cell
p
hones must be turned off
during class. No
chewing gum, n
o eating
, and

n
o talking during lectures. When another student is
presenting, listen actively and e
ncourage him/her. You are
responsible for adhering to
the Code of Student Cond
uct outlined in the College Catalog
.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY
:

The work students submit/prese
nt must be an independent
work.


The Biological Health Sciences Division Student Handbook is on line available at:
http://bhs.deanza.edu/StudentHandbook.pdf

as well as in the BAT lab in hard copy. Al
l
the information in the Student Handbook does apply to this course. This handbook
contains many helpful resources for students, ideas to increase student success, and
expectations of classroom behavior.


COURSE EVALUATION

Grades are determined as the percentage of points

accumulated during the quarter

(see
above). A curve will not be used unless the entire class performa
nce warrants it, which
will be deter
mined at the end of the quarter
.


Please note:
You may

earn extra
25 points

by
completing

the bonus questions
correctly at
each exam/
test.
Extra credits will be added onto the total points ea
rned at the end of the
