  1. All students are expected to come to class with:

  • a writing instrument,

  • a notebook dedicated to Anatomy and Physiology.

2. Your text must remain covered at all times

3. Internet access will be needed to complete portions of the course.

4. Questions are encouraged during class or after school. Do not be afraid to

ask questions!

  1. The total learning process depends upon your original work.


1. Safety is the top priority

2. All lab-write-ups must be typed according to specific directions.

(see special section “Lab Report Format”)

3. The lab write-up will be due usually within two days of completion

of the specific activity unless otherwise specified by the instructor.

4. Study groups are recommended to discuss data, concepts, and/or

observations. However, each student is responsible for submitting his/her own

original work.


The following “Lab Report Format” is designed to be a concise yet informative learning and evaluative tool.

1. Title: All labs will begin with a title. This component should be centered at the top of the page.

2. “Statement of Purpose:” This section should define the major concept being addressed by the lab activity. The statement of purpose should consist of no more than two lines.

3. “Data:” This section should consist only of the data obtained through the lab activity. Data should be factual in nature without editorial. This section will usually contain tables and/or graphs and sometimes drawings. Data and observations should always be reported in tabular form.

4. “Discussion:” This section of the lab report will be used to evaluate your understanding of the lab and the concepts addressed. The discussion portion is the most meaningful portion of the lab report and should include two very important components.

Discussion A.) A brief yet thorough discussion of the concepts addressed by the lab. Consider this section an essay on the concept/concepts on which the lab is based. This section addresses the concepts and does not address the results.

Discussion B.) A discussion of how the results of the lab, as found in the data section, relate to the concepts addressed by the lab. This section of the lab report should contain a well thought-out critique of your results or errors that affect you results.

5. “Conclusion:” The final section of the lab report should include a numerical listing of any pertinent conclusions that you have reached as a result of the lab activity. These conclusions should be brief, simple statements written in complete sentences (one or two lines each). Points used in the conclusion must have been addressed in your discussion. This section is not written in paragraph form.

  • Do not include procedure unless requested by your instructor.

  • Avoid the use of personal pronouns in your lab report.

  • The boldface section headings 2-5 found on this document should also be included in your lab report.

Please note - all reports should be typed and proofed.


1. Assessment for this course will consist of the following:

a. exams - usually 100 points - typically announced at least one week

before the exam date.

b. quizzes- 5 - 50 points

c. quests-50-75 points

d. labs - 10-50 points.

e. projects - Friday assignments - articles - class participation -

(point values vary accordingly).

2. Students will be evaluated on the following:

a. Ability to work independently and knowledgeably in class and laboratory.

b. Ability to follow instructions carefully and completely.

c. Ability to collect data, observe, analyze, and draw conclusions.

d. Ability to work effectively in an array of group activities.

3. Students are graded on the basis of total points earned versus total possible points.


1. Be willing to spend time to meet your responsibilities.

2. Have a positive attitude, show motivation, demonstrate the ability to work independently and function effectively in cooperative learning situations.

3. Show an exceptional attendance record and be willing to use personal time to complete course work.

6. Take responsibility for your actions.

7. Appreciate other's points of view.

8. Questions are encouraged during class or after school. Do not be afraid to ask questions!
