Welcome to Biology!

Biology I introduces the basic skills and knowledge of the study of life, which are sometimes really weird, usually incredible, and always awesome. We will learn how to investigate phenomena like scientists and engineers and discover amazing things about the life all around us, even the life you cannot see with just your eyes. Topics covered include Biochemistry, Homeostasis, Photosynthesis, Cellular Respiration, Molecular Biology, Genetics, Natural Selection, and Ecology.
Below is our tentative schedule:
 August 16-30 Safety & Intro to Biology
 September 3 to October 11
 Adaptations & Natural Selection
 October 21 - December 13Ecosystem Dynamics 
 January 7 - 12  Cycling of Matter & Energy
 March 23 - May 22 Structure & Function/Cellular Systems
Room: C209

Evan Whitaker's Biology I Class

I am originally from Southern California and moved to Tulsa, OK about 15 years ago. I graduated from OU with a bachelor degree in Science Education specializing in Biology, although I began my college career studying Microbiology. I have a special interest in studying archaea and History of Science (because you cannot know where you are going if you do not know where you began!). I have done undergraduate research on foodborne pathogenic bacteria and the effects of BPA on aerobic microbiomes from abandoned landfills . My hobbies and interests include building and riding bicycles, reading science fiction and science non-fiction, and motorcycle camping whenever I can. 
I look forward to learning and growing with you this year! 
"It is possible to commit no mistakes and still lose. That is not a weakness. That is life." - Captain Jean Luc Picard 
"It is the struggle itself that is most important. We must strive to be more than we are. It does not matter if we do not reach our ultimate goal. The effort itself yields its own reward. It is the difference between knowledge and experience."  - Lieutenant Commander Data
