A study of biology includes the study of the chemical basis of living organisms, DNA.
My results appear to show that the experiment went well as the results all lie within Biology practical coursework pattern and none of the results lie off the pattern. I feel my method as accurate and appropriate for the results, which I wished to obtain as it as not very time consuming and allowed me to draw up sufficient conclusions.
There where certain factors, which could have affected the accuracy of my experiment so, these had to be kept to a minimum so I carried out the experiment in such a way as to avoid these occurring. For example when I measured out the boiling tubes with the distilled water I used a 10cm3 measuring cylinder and read from the bottom of the meniscus and after they were all full I compared them to each other to ensure they were similar in the amounts of distilled water they contained.
Also when I was cutting the beetroot cylinders to 5 cm I used the same ruler just to ensure that there was no difference in their size this ensured a fair test.
Also I used the same size of cork borer to obtain the cylinders to get them all the same diameter to ensure a fair test. Also a stop watch ass used to ensure that the beetroot cylinders all stayed in the water for exactly a minute, a thermometer was also used to ensure that the beetroot cylinders were all put in at the correct temperatures, this was essential for drawing the graph.
I also ensured that the colorimeter was zeroed by using a specimen tube of distilled water and pressing the button, all these factors ensure that the test is kept fair. There are also certain aspects of the experiment that could have made the results more accurate.
I could have used more temperatures as opposed to just 85, 70, 60, 55, 50 and 45 degrees, I could have used more results in between these temperatures for example, between 85 and 70 degrees I could also have used 80 and This would have made the drawing of the graph more accurate as there would have been more results to go by.
I also could have used more accurate measuring equipment, which would have maybe given more accurate results maybe to 3 decimal places. To ensure m results where in the right region I compared my results with those of my classmates, this enabled me to compare each result and check how similar it was to the average of the class results.
This proved that my results were quite similar to my classmates and showed the reliability of my results.
There were no anomalies in my results and they fitted a general trend, as temperature increased so did the optical reading.The Department of Biology offers a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree in Biology and a B.S. degree in Microbiology and Immunology, as well as a Minor in Biology.
Majors and concentrations.
At Colorado State, there are two primary methods you can explore your passions: majors and concentrations. A major is the degree you will earn at graduation, while a concentration focuses on a specific field of study related to a major.
CURRICULUM. A comprehensive, rigorous program, biology is offered as a major and minor. Related programs include neuroscience and primary healthcare advancement program. Through coursework, research, field studies and more, you'll gain a strong, broad- based foundation in the principles of biology.
A level Biology, This course covers the brand new spec introduced in september Biology is the natural science concerned with the study of life and living organisms, including their structure, function, growth, origin, evolution, distribution, and taxonomy.
Biology is the science of living things and is also used to explain how humans interact with and influence the natural environment.
Furthering our knowledge in biology has led to new technological advances and a deeper understanding of the world. Undergraduate B.S. Biology. A Bachelor of Science in biology affords students several long-term career goals. Four concentrations are offered including biology, environmental biology, medical technology, and molecular biology/biotechnology.
