This publication contains materials for four courses in Applied Biology/Chemistry in the Applied Academics program at South Seattle Community College. It begins with the article, "Community College Applied Academics: The State of the Art?" (George B. Neff), which describes the characteristics, model, courses, and coordination activity that make up this community college applied academics program. The following materials are provided for each course: course outline (credit, lecture, and lab hours; course description; prerequisites; learning objectives and hours of instruction); course syllabus (course description; required materials; other policies); and course schedule (weekly schedules that include major topics, activities, and laboratory). The first course includes sources, uses, and problems relating to natural resources and the properties, uses, quality, and cycles of water, air, and other gases. The second course covers these topics: components of the continuity of life, food sources, effects of diet on nutrition, and disease transmission, prevention, and treatment in plants and animals. Subjects of the third course are as follows: photosynthesis and the role of nutrients in plant growth and reproduction; animal anatomy and physiology of life processes; and types, benefits, and hazards of microorganisms to humans as well as biotechnology applications of microorganisms. The fourth course addresses these topics: the sources, properties, and uses of synthetic materials; control of home, community, and industrial waste and waste management; and animals and plants sharing space and resources in a community.
