The Biology for Non-Majors II textbook contains fifteen modules—roughly one module per week for a 16-week semester. If you need to modify the pace and cover the material more quickly, the following modules work well together:

  • Module 6: Plant Diversity and Module 7: Plant Structure and Function
  • Module 7: Plant Structure and Function and Module 8: Plant Reproduction
  • Module 9: Animal Diversity and Module 10: Features of the Animal Kingdom

We recommend NOT doubling up Module 11: Invertebrates or Module 12: Vertebrates, as they are long and especially challenging. Students will need more time for mastery and completion of assignments. In a longer semester, Module 12: Vertebrates can be taught over two weeks instead of one.
