00.01 Human Biology Course Introduction
This course will give you a great understanding of human biology. This course will help you grow your knowledge in human biology to have a better understanding of Anatomy & Physiology and Pathophysiology.
You will have a better understanding of:
I. Cell building blocks
II. Cell structure
V. ATP creation
VI. Krebs cycle
VII. Genetic basics
AND so much more! Let’s dive in to the world of human biology!
Cornell Note-Taking System Instructions:
- Record: During the lecture, use the note-taking column to record the lecture using telegraphic sentences.
- Questions: As soon after class as possible, formulate questions based onthe notes in the right-hand column. Writing questions helps to clarifymeanings, reveal relationships, establish continuity, and strengthenmemory. Also, the writing of questions sets up a perfect stage for exam-studying later.
- Recite: Cover the note-taking column with a sheet of paper. Then, looking at the questions or cue-words in the question and cue column only, say aloud, in your own words, the answers to the questions, facts, or ideas indicated by the cue-words.
- Reflect: Reflect on the material by asking yourself questions, for example: “What’s the significance of these facts? What principle are they based on? How can I apply them? How do they fit in with what I already know? What’s beyond them?
- Review: Spend at least ten minutes every week reviewing all your previous notes. If you do, you’ll retain a great deal for current use, as well as, for the exam.

Hello and welcome to the course on the basics of human biology. I am Christine Brink and I will be your instructional guide as we tour through basic biological concepts in this series.
I have taught biology and chemistry for the last 15 years at a local highschool. I found my true passion for the last 8 years to be teaching AP biology. I gather with likeminded biology teachers and grade AP exams. I also help create course content for new biology teahers. When not teaching I am traveling and learning new things. You are never too old to learn new things. I am sure you will learn lots as we cover everything from micromolecules to genetics. I hope I inspire you with a new understanding and appreciation for the study of life.
Lets get started on this biological journey. Now go out and be your best self today, an as always happy nursing!
