SYLLABUS

(Course information and policies)


Introduction: Fundamentals 1 is a composite course that primarily deals with the biochemical and genetic principles of human biology. The course begins with a general explanation of human anatomical and histological composition as an entrance to human biochemistry. The biochemistry track will demonstrate the principal kinds of molecules found in humans and how those molecules are altered to sustain and carry out living functions. This area will reveal the nature of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids, and nucleic acids. Within proteins, for example, will be included amino acid building blocks, peptide bonds, example proteins such as the collagens and hemoglobin, as well as protein catalysts known as enzymes. Also included within each category will be the metabolic processes that form and degrade molecules and how metabolism itself acts as a mechanism for cellular energy. Integrated within the course is a short physiological description of essential membrane function and transport. A latter part of the course will demonstrate how cells renew themselves (nucleic acid function) and carry out integrated communication (hormones and neurotransmitters). The course is rounded out with a discussion of the principles and functions of modern genetics.


Lectures: Lectures are the primary mode of education for this course

and attendance is mandatory. Lecturers have the option of

screening for attendance and assigning extra points for

grades during lectures by using the audience response

system (ARS). Failure to attend lectures may result in

removal of points from ones final grade.


Course dates: August 11 – September 29, 2008


Lecture location: Volker Hall, Room C


Lecture schedule and website: Go to the site:

Required textbook:


Biochemistry, updated 3rd edition, RH Garrett & CM Grisham,

Thomson, Brooks/Cole; Belmont, CA: 2007.

Reading Assignments:


When reading assignments are made, they can be found as page numbers in brackets for the required textbook at the course website calendar. Please consult the weekly or daily lecture calendar for the assignments.


Examinations & Grading:


Four one-hour, written examinations will be given in Volker Hall in rooms C-D at the following dates and times:


Exam 1: Monday, August 25, 8:00 – 9:00 AM

Exam 2: Monday, September 8, 8:00 – 9:00 AM

Exam 3: Monday, September 22, 8:00 – 9:00 AM

Exam 4: Tuesday, October 1, 8:00 – 9:00 AM


Competency exam (if necessary):

Friday, October 3 11:00 – NOON, Room C, Volker Hall


The exam schedule is also listed on the website calendar previously listed.


GRADING POLICY:

All students who receive an average of 70 or above from both their four one-hour exams and a +/-2% modification (based on their participation in the ARS system) will have completed the course. Those students will receive a grade of C if their number scores are between 70 and 79; a grade of B if their number scores are between 80 and 89; and a grade of A if their number scores are 90 or above.

Students who receive scores between 60 and 69.4 as an average from the above have not completed the course and will be required to take a competency exam. Those students who receive a number score of 70 or better will receive a final grade of C. Those students who receive a grade below 70 will receive a grade of F. Students who receive average grades below 60 in their four one-hour exams with their 2% modification will have failed the course and will receive a grade of F. No remediation is offered for a final failed grade from the competency exam.

Missed examinations will result in no credit being given for the material covered on the examination (approximately 25% of the grade for the entire course). In those cases of a missed examination for a medical reason, the course director, Dr. Whikehart, must be contacted within 24 hr of the examination and a written medical excuse will be required to arrange for a make-up examination.


Ethical behavior: The honor codes of both the Schools of Dentistry & Optometry respectively are to be observed in all matters related to this course. Students are expected to treat faculty, staff and each other with respect . All electronic devices (including computers) must be turned off or placed in silent mode during lectures. No electronic device is permitted in lecture rooms during examinations. Transcriptions of lectures are permitted, while preparation of transcriptions of ARS questions and examination questions are not permitted and constitute violations of the honor codes. Misuse of ARS devices by falsification (such as to record student attendance or answer questions) are not permitted and equally constitute honor code violations.


Lecture preparation: Understanding of the material is greatly facilitated if the students read the course material before coming to lecture when reading assignments are made (see reading assignments on the site calendar). It is also expected that students will come to lectures with their ARS “clickers”.


Course evaluation: Both the course & lecturers will be student evaluated.


Course and lecture assistance: For general questions regarding the course, please contact Dr. David Whikehart at 934-6749 or fs3864@uab.edu. For specific questions regarding individual lecture material, contact the faculty member involved (See faculty lecturers and contact information previously given). If possible, have your class representative contact the course director or individual lecturers for wide ranging questions. However, please do not hesitate to seek assistance during or outside of lectures.


Schedule changes: Normally schedule changes will not occur. However,

should a change become necessary, the change will be posted on the website under “Announcements” .
