Bio

My name is Kurtis Wallace. I am majoring in Communication Design at New York City College of Technology. The programs that I use for my projects are Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator and Adobe Indesign. I specialize in making print ads, posters and logos.

My inspiration for going into the Communication Design field was seeing ads in the subway and on billboards. Also television commercials really caught my attention. I was always astounded with how these different forms of media would promote the product they were trying to sell. I liked how there were no limits to how you could promote a product.

BIO1101 Lab

BIO1101 Lab

The BIO1101 laboratory course is an introduction to laboratory techniques and their application to the understanding of general biological concepts. It focuses on the fundamental principles of biology, including taxonomy, structure, reproduction, heredity, development and evolution. The concepts of molecular biology and DNA fingerprinting using representative plants and animals are introduced. The course also includes the use and care of the microscope. Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the BIO1101 lab, the students will be able to: 1.To learn to be observant and to develop and sharpen those observational and critical thinking skills through inquiry.. 2.To discipline yourself to develop good record-keeping skills, required to be successful in any career you plan to pursue. 3.To learn to think analytically about the observations you have made – to be able to: a.analyze a problem and focus on a hypothesis to be tested. b.determine the best way of testing the hypothesis, and using creativity to solve problems, including interpretation of data. 4.To communicate your findings about the processes studied and results obtained in ways appropriate to the biological sciences, both in written and oral formats. 5.To become familiar with the use of computers to gather, discuss and analyze data 6.To work on collaborative projects and also in teams.

Bio1101 General Biology I

Bio1101 General Biology I

Biology 1101 is an introductory Biology course. It focuses on the fundamental principles of biology, including taxonomy, structure, reproduction, heredity, development and evolution. Since Biology is governed by Chemistry, a large emphasis will be placed on basic Chemistry early in the course. Learning Outcomes: Upon completion of the course, students will become conversant on the following topics: 1. The Scientific Method and general scientific inquiry 2. General Inorganic and Organic Chemistry 3. Biochemical make-up of organisms (specifically Biological Macromolecules) 4. Organization of cells and classification of organisms based on cellular complexity and organization 5. Energy, energy production and utilization 6. Reproduction 7. Inheritance 8. Molecular Biology (DNA, gene function, gene regulation) 9. Biotechnology and Genomics The Laboratory associated with this course is meant to reinforce the concepts learned in the lecture and to provide hands-on experience in scientific inquiry and exploration. From the laboratory component, we will better understand data acquisition and data analysis. Most importantly, communication of the findings in the lab will demonstrate the full understanding of learned concepts.
