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 first semester of a two semester course, and will cover basic internal life processes, as well as emphasizing the skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems. This laboratory will focus on hands-on learning, combining laboratory and microscopic techniques with classical dissection.
There are a total of 180 points possible, which will count for 25% of your overall grade for the course. Your grade will be determined by you performance on:
2 lab practicals (100 total points)
8 Quizzes (80 total points)
Lab Practical 1 (Microscope/Tissues - The Cell, Anatomy and Division) (40 points)
Lab Practical 2 (Structure of Bone - Articulations and Biomechanics) (60 points)
We will have 11 quizzes (10 pts. each) during the semester. The lowest 3 quiz scores will be dropped for your final grade. Each quiz will cover material presented in the previous lab. Quizzes will focus on the identification of structures and understanding of conceptual material.
As per SRSU policy, students shall be dropped from the class with an F if they miss 20% (3 labs) 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. Also, this course will involve dissection in the later half of the term. As such, please dress accordingly and avoid unnecessary problems (dangling hair, contact lens, formal wear, etc.)
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!
2) No food or drink in the lab. During dissection, it could get messy
3) If you are gong 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 837-8203, FH 112.
