Anatomy & Physiology 101: This is an intensive study of the structure & function of the human body. The emphasis is homeostasis and the
interrelationship among systems with discussions on selected pathologies. The first semester of the two part series covers the topics chemistry, histology, genetics & inheritance; and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, digestive, & reproductive systems.
Anatomy & Physiology 102: Anatomy & Physiology 102 is a continuation if the series and covers the nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, & urinary systems as well as fluid and electrolyte homeostasis.
*High school or college biology & chemistry is strongly recommended.
Format: Classes meet twice a week. Lectures will run approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes. Labs will run approximately 3 hours.
v There will be several quizzes, typically following the completion of a chapter.
v There will be informal verbal or written quiz questions given regarding material that was covered that day.
v In addition, there will be three 100 point “midterm” exams and a 100 point FINAL exam.
v There will be several small lab practicals given on lab material.
v In addition, there will be three 100 point practicals.
v Daily labs will be completed and turned in for credit. Labs are due at the end of the day unless told otherwise.
Note: Lab activities include dissection of preserved specimens & cadavers, knowledge of models, skeletal bones, and muscles.
v Up to 25 points will be given for following safety procedures, following directions, equal involvement in your lab group, keeping pagers & phones off and out of access while in the classroom and having respect for others.
v Extra credit may be given throughout class at the discretion of the instructor. Extra credit will be no more than 5% of total points.
*The total number of points in this course varies depending on the number of quizzes and potential changes in lab activities.
Lab assignments MUST be read prior to lab activities. It is HIGHLY recommended to read the textbook prior to class, THE BOOK WILL BE CLOSELY FOLLOWED. ***NOTE: Occasionally the order of concepts introduced will vary from the order presented in the book and some information will not be discussed in the book at all.
Safety in the classroom: Our classroom/lab is exposed to many toxic chemicals and multiple types of bacteria. Therefore, safety procedures are highly reinforced. This includes: cleaning of desks, counters, lab equipment, and glassware, proper disposal of all materials, returning equipment to its proper place, wearing goggles/gloves, and ABSOULTELY NO EATING OR DRINKING ALLOWED! All food and drinks must be out of sight (in back packs or in refrigerator).
Attendance: Three absences will result in a student being dropped from the course. There is a large amount of information given during one day and it is difficult to catch up if absent. Labs CANNOT be made up. Many quizzes & practicals are given and CANNOT be made up. An exam can only be made up with written proof of a circumstance, which I deem excusable and must be taken within 3 weeks of the initial test date.
Drop Policy: If a student is not present during the first class period that student will be dropped from the course. Again, 3 absences results in a drop. If you choose to stop attending class it is ultimately YOUR responsibility to drop yourself from the class, do not assume the instructor will drop you. If you are still enrolled at the end of the semester, you may receive an F grade. You can check on your enrollment status and fill out the drop form at the Admission & Records office.
F Less than 60% of the points possible in class and/or is found cheating in class.
D Obtain at least 60% of the points possible in class.
C Obtains at least 70% of the points possible in class, showing they can replicate general concepts of the lecture & lab material.
B Obtains at least 80% of the points possible in class, showing they can
assimilate and relate concepts together.
A Obtains at least 90% of the points possible in class, showing a strong understanding of the material with problem solving and critical thinking skills.
College is a place to develop skills that will help you succeed in your future
career and in your life in general. Cheating is a very serious matter and will
not be tolerated. If caught cheating the school administration will be notified
in writing and the student will receive a zero on that assignment. If caught
cheating a second time the student will automatically receive an F in the class.
Cheating activities include, but are not limited to: using books or notes during
tests, looking at or copying another student’s work, changing graded papers
for credit, or falsifying documents.
For more details on the school policy on discipline procedures see the college catalog.
