Course Goal: An introductory anatomy and physiology course that is designed to provide a basic understanding and working knowledge of the human body. To prepare students for college transfer, and/or nursing, physical therapy, respiratory therapy and other health science programs. To develop a strong foundation in human anatomy and physiology through the structure, function, interactions of the organs and the environment. To integrate the concepts of function and form and how these relate to homeostasis in the body. The background acquired in this course will prepare the student for Anatomy and Physiology 214 (anatomy & physiology II).

The course will aid the student to develop the following skills:

Self-discipline and responsibility Group study and individual enhancement

Problem solving and interpretation Verbal and written communication

Scheduling, organizing and prioritization of studying Critical thinking: you are responsible for your own learning

Course Content: Unit I: Histology Skeletal System Articulations

Unit II: Muscular System Cardiovascular System

Unit III: Respiratory System Lymphatic System Blood

Lectures: Will focus on the materials that require clarification and subject material that relates to clinical or health profession areas. The lectures will not cover all the material required in each study unit. The student will also obtain information through the textbook, the lab manual, and individual studies. It is good practice to read the text/lab manual before the topic is discussed in class.

Laboratory: Laboratory exercises must be completed during the scheduled lab session. There will be open labs scheduled during the week (to be determined at the beginning of the quarter). During some of the open labs there will be a tutor to help with difficult concepts. Often instructors from ANP 213 and ANP 214 will drop by to help. This open lab is your opportunity to use this extra time for added study of the physiological and anatomical aspects presented. This is not a time to make up missed labs -- unless previous scheduling plans have been arranged.

Attendance: Students should attend every class session. If a student misses a class session, then it is the student's responsibility to obtain the lecture notes, assignments, and materials handed out in class. If a student must miss class due to a prolonged illness or unexpected circumstance, the student should notify the instructor as soon as possible to make arrangements.


Grades will be tentatively assigned as follows:

4.0 = 95% + 3.4 = 89% 2.8 = 79% 2.2 = 70% 1.6 = 61% 1.0 = 52%

3.9 = 94% 3.3 = 88% 2.7 = 78% 2.1 = 69% 1.5 = 60% 0.9 = 50%

3.8 = 93% 3.2 = 85% 2.6 = 76% 2.0 = 68% 1.4 = 59% 0.8 = 48%

3.7 = 92% 3.1 = 83% 2.5 = 74% 1.9 = 66% 1.3 = 58% 0.7 = 46%

3.6 = 91% 3.0 = 81% 2.4 = 73% 1.8 = 64% 1.2 = 56% 0.6 = 44%

3.5 = 90% 2.9 = 80% 2.3 = 71% 1.7 = 62% 1.1 = 54% 0.5 = 42% etc.

Students who stop attending class and do not initiate one of the following alternatives will receive a grade of 0.0.

W - Withdrawal. The last day to withdraw without the instructor's signature is Oct 6th. Until Nov 17th this action requires

the instructor's signature, after that it is not possible to withdraw.

I - Incomplete. This grade is granted at the instructor's discretion. For students who perform at a passing level (60%) but

did not meet the course requirements (ONE OR TWO exams) and wish to complete the course next quarter.

N - Audit. Requires official registration.

NC - No Credit. Student did not fulfill the course requirements. If the overall student performance is 60% or better, a

student may request an NC from the instructor PRIOR to the final exam. This grade is granted at the instructor's discretion.

Dates of Note


Jan. 8 Last day to withdraw with 100% refund (less $5).

Jan. 15 Last day to add/register; instructor permission required. Last day to change audit/credit status without instructor permission. Last day to withdraw without a "W" appearing on transcript and without instructor permission.

Jan. 22 Last day to withdraw with 50% refund. Instructor permission required.

Feb. 22 Last day to withdraw (no refund) or change audit/credit status; instructor permission required.


Grades will be based upon:

Three lecture exams worth 75 points each == 225 points

Three lab/lecture quizzes worth 25 points each == 75 points

Two lab exams worth 50 points each == 100 points

Weekly questions or article responses == 100 points


Exams: THERE ARE NO MAKE UP EXAMS. Any changes in the time and/or day of an exam or quiz will be announced in class some time before the exam date. It is the student's responsibility to find out what she/he has missed, including test dates. No late or make up exams except in an emergency – in which case the student must contact the instructor before the exam, and is limited to one per quarter. Documentation will be required. A penalty may be incurred for make up exams. No extra time given for those arriving late.

The lecture exams will cover the material covered in lecture and some material presented in the lab. The lecture exams are not comprehensive - but the material does build upon itself. Each exam will contain questions from the unit that was just covered. Lecture exams will be comprised of short answer/essay style questions. The final for lecture will include the last unit and integrate topics from the entire course. The laboratory practicals will cover the information presented in lab and lecture, especially the identification aspects. The lab final will be comprehensive, covering the broad topics.

Articles & weekly questions: Throughout the quarter you will have questions to answer that focus on lecture material and readings. These questions may directly address additional articles that I ask you to read, or they may ask you to formulate answers using material from lecture, lab, and book chapters. In all cases, please write clear, concise, specific answers to the questions. Please also provide mechanistic answers: tell me how and why things happen as they do, based on the physical, chemical and cellular processes we learned about in class.

Reading: I expect you to read the laboratory manual exercise BEFORE coming to each lab session. It will also help you to have read the text prior to the lecture; you will find it easier to assimilate the information presented.

Ethics: The worst academic offenses in western culture are cheating and plagiarism. That means, for this class, 1) Don’t turn in an assignment someone else wrote; 2) Don’t let someone else do a lot of rewriting or proofreading for you, although it’s fine to get feedback; and 3) Don’t copy phrases or sentences from book, articles or the Internet into your question responses. Use your own words. The consequences for cheating and plagiarism can be as serious as failing the course, and in some places, being kicked out of school. In addition, it’s just plain not going to help you become a better writer or increase your knowledge.

Tutoring: I will be available to help with questions during office hours and through appointments. There is also tutoring available free of charge during the open biology lab times. If you feel that you will need help, come see the instructor as soon as possible so that assistance can be arranged. There is a computer program available in the student computer center for you to use to study on your own or in small groups.

Extra Credit: I may offer some. It will always come in the form of questions asked during lecture, so this is another reason to always attend. More on this later.

Practice Questions & Review Sheets: I will assign practice questions from time to time. There are also lab exercise review sheets at the end of your lab manual. I will not grade these, so you are under no obligation to do them. However, you will probably find that you understand that material more completely if you do answer these questions.

Special Assistance: Please let the instructor know if there are any areas that you will need assistance. This includes physical access to the classroom or laboratory, ASL interpreters, or extra time to take an exam as organized through Al Souma. If you are physically or learning challenged, please let the instructor know so that steps can be taken to make the learning environment as comfortable and successful as possible. If you need special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please make an appointment with the instructor as soon as possible. Counselors are available to assist you; Michele dela Rosa is the counselor for the Science and Math Division. Al Souma is the counselor for Differently Abled Students. Counselors may be contacted through the Science and Math Division Office, Room 100.

I reserve the right to alter the schedule, assignments, grading procedures, etc., at any point in time during the class due to schedule conflicts, new/different assignments, new approaches, etc., based upon my judgment.

Additional Stuff:

I.Test re-grades.

If I make an addition mistake on your exam, please return it to me immediately for a re-assessment of the addition. If you are unsure about why you missed points on a question, or think you deserve more points, consult the key. If you are still unsure, explain in writing on a separate sheet of paper why you think you deserve additional points. Turn in this page and your original exam no later than one week after the exam has been returned. I will assess this within the next two weeks and return your exam with a changed grade or an explanation as to the grading protocol. My response may be written or oral.

II.Any Questions.

If you have any questions throughout the quarter, please call, email, arrange an appointment, or ask a question in class. This is YOUR learning experience!
