Zoology-thumb

Course Synopsis Note: This is a preview of the course, providing access only to tutorial 1. Get the full course at learn.oraprep.com/store! Zoology is the study of the diversity of animal life that exists in the world around us. It focuses on the ways in which animals have adapted to the often difficult environments they inhabit, and how they live, find food, and reproduce. It is an extremely broad topic and one that gets broader every year – indeed, approximately 10,000 new species are discovered every year! This course will therefore provide you with an introduction to the fascinating topic of zoology, giving you a broad overview of animal diversity, evolution, anatomy, and behaviour. It will also look more closely at the topic of genetics, discussing how small changes in DNA can lead to large evolutionary changes in animal biology. This process of evolution will then be examined in more detail with particular reference to the theories of evolution propounded by Charles Darwin. Throughout this course you will be introduced to the major topics that are likely to be covered in a first year university course as well as the major areas of Zoology in which you can specialise later on in your studies, offering an insight into what studying this varied field is like as well as giving you material to bolster your application.

Analytical-chemistry-thumb

Course Synopsis Analytical chemistry is the branch of chemistry that explores what the chemical and biochemical world around us is made of, splitting substances apart to examine their constituent components. This makes it a very practical branch of chemistry with many important uses in fields as diverse as medicine, industry, astronomy, and police investigations. It is also what makes it such an exciting and enjoyable subject to study! Analytical chemists use a range of methodologies to separate, identify and determine the relative quantity of components with the aim of establishing the make-up of a chemical substance. Having gone through an overview of the background of the subject in tutorial 1, the subsequent tutorials will focus on these methodologies, exploring their theoretical basis as well as how they are carried out in the real world, and what machinery is typically used in the laboratory. We will cover a range of methodologies such as chromatography, microscopy, spectroscopy, and electrochemical analysis, all of which are fundamental to the modern analytical chemist. What's Included?

Ancient-greek-art-thumb

Course Synopsis The legacy of the ancient Greeks is still as strong today as it ever was, and no more so than in the area of art. The art of ancient Greece has inspired many artists – painters, poets, potters, sculptors, architects, and more – over the centuries, and is still admired by connoisseurs today for its beauty, intricacy, and for the reflection it offers of the people who created it. Yet the topic of 'ancient Greek Art' is as broad as the period of the ancient Greeks itself, a period that spans not only time but also place, and which saw many separate peoples and regions flourish throughout the Greek and Mediterranean world. A study of ancient Greek Art also spans multiple disciplines, as the art of the ancient Greeks served far more than just an aesthetic function, providing functionality in the case of pots, stability in the case of architecture, and symbolic meaning in the case of sculpture, and much more besides. This course will attempt to offer an overview of the evolution of ancient Greek Art from the Protogeometric period to the end of the Hellenistic period. We will examine a whole range of art forms including vases, paintings, architecture, and sculpture, looking at each from a variety of different perspectives. We will also explore some of the methods used by the creators of these works of art. This course lays the foundation for further study of the topic at university, whether as part of a classics, history or art degree, or for anyone with a keen interest in Art and ancient Greece.
