The purpose of this course is to introduce students to the importance of the human body and its various organ systems. This is designed as the second semester of a two semester course, and will cover internal organ systems, such as cardiovascular, digestive, endocrine, lymphatic, respiratory, reproductive, and urinary. Combined with the laboratory, students should come away with an understanding of the above systems, how they are anatomically structured, and how that structure aids in each system’s functionality.
Students are expected to attend all lectures and exams. There are to be three exams during the course of the semester to test if concepts are being retained. These exams will be lumped together to constitute 50% of the lecture grade, with the lowest of these exams being dropped from this calculation. There is also a semi-comprehensive Final Exam worth 50%. Final exam will be a double test, first half being comprehensive over the first 3 test's material, while the second half will only be over material since the third exam. Missing one of the first 3 exams without written excuse will result in a 25% deduction in grade. Missing the final without an excuse will result in failing the course. Periodic attendance quizzes may be offered for extra-credit on exams. Points acquired in lab will account for 25% of your total grade for the course.
As per SRSU policy, students shall be dropped from the class with an F if they miss 20% (6 lectures) over the course of the semester. If you are unable to attend lecture, please notify me by either e-mail, phone, or in person so that you will not be unnecessarily dropped from the course. Although supplemental material for this course will be provided on-line, previous experience indicates that periodic attendance tends to hurt grades. Some material is only presented during the lecture, with this material typically included on exams to add depth to the tests. It is also encouraged that students spend a couple of hours after each class reviewing the notes and slides covered that day. This course covers a lot of information, and only through continuous efforts can one succeed in learning Anatomy and Physiology.
Lecture courtesy: The general rules of classroom etiquette are below.
1) Please do not talk to others in class while the instructor is lecturing. If you have a question, ASK THE INSTRUCTOR! That’s what I’m here for.
2) No eating, chewing, dipping, etc.
3) If you are going to attend class, please do so. Leaving and returning to class repeatedly is disruptive, as well as showing up after half the period is over.
4) Please turn cell phones and pagers to silent while in class. They are disruptive to the entire class, and distract others as well.
Students with disabilities will be provided reasonable accommodations. If you would like to request such accommodations because of physical, mental, or learning disability, please contact the ADA Coordinator for Program Accessibility at 837-8178, UC 211.
