Using this Book with Your Curriculum

There are many ways to organize a first-year biology book. Some books take a generally top-down approach, starting with organisms and working their way down through organs and tissues to cells and cell structures and eventually to molecular biology. Other books take a generally bottom-up approach, starting with the molecular basis of life and working their way up to larger structures.

This book takes the latter approach, because we believe that to understand the whole it’s best to first understand the parts that make up that whole. But regardless of which approach your textbook takes, you should have no difficulty in correlating the lab sessions in this book with topics in your text. With few exceptions, which are noted in the lab sessions themselves, you can do the lab sessions in this book in any order.
