Offered for college credit through UMKC as Introductory Anatomy (see below)
Designed for students who plan a career in health fields or certain teaching fields. This course
includes language of anatomy and physiology; study of structure and function from cellular to
organ-system levels. Lab work includes dissections, measurement with complex physiological
equipment, use of models and diagrams. Extensive new vocabulary; memorization of terms and
application to body system. All college-university fees must be paid by student when the college
credit option is chosen.

About the course:
This course is designed for students with an interest in a career in a health field or some teaching
All aspects of the human body are covered. Includes: biochemical, tissue, organ system level, and
This course will require extensive memorization and utilize extensive terminology
Lectures, demonstrations, labs, dissections, and projects will be used to help the student learn the
anatomy and physiological functions of the human body.
Each student will be expected to take part in all labs. Includes: microscope work, dissections, and
using medical equipment.
Expect homework each class period. Quizzes may be announced or unannounced.
Expect to participate in every class.
1. To help the student gain a basic background in human anatomy and phys.
2. To give the student a foundation of knowledge which can be built upon later in more advanced
3. To furnish the student with information about the human body that can be an aid in daily living.
4. To help the student with technical terms of anatomy and physiology that may be found in the
5. To help the student gain an insight into the fields of medicine and nursing and to stimulate an
interest in keeping up with current trends.
Major assignments/projects include Lab dissections, Muscle physiology project, and Microscope
labs. There will be a major test at the completion of each unit which will include short
answer/essay questions along with multiple choice and matching questions. Some units will have
a Lab Practical test where the students must identify structures from a dissected organ or
All assignments, labs, tests, and quizzes are graded using point totals. The points are totaled for
the entire semester. Your total score divided by the total points possible will determine your grade
on each item and overall grade.
Tests will average about 65% of the grade; Assignments/labs/projects about 25% of the grade;
Semester Final is 10% of the grade
***For High School credit: lec. and lab grade integrated.
***For College Credit: lec and lab grade separate but cumulated over both semesters

If there is an emergency, come to me in the morning before school, not before class.
If you are absent on the due date, the assignment is due the next day I see you.
Late Work: Assignments/projects/labs that are late will be given a zero for points.
Tests and Quizzes will be given periodically (announced or unannounced)
Quizzes Unit tests will be announced a week or more in advance.
There will be no test retakes.
Tests must be finished at the end of class time. Slower test takers should arrive early.
If you are absent on the test day, be prepared to take the test the next time I see you unless
you have made arrangements with me to take it on another day.
Make-ups: It is your responsibility to get make-up work and reschedule tests or labs when absent. I am
not going to track you down. Talk with me about a reschedule date.
**Failure to do so will result in a zero on the test and/or lab**
For homework, you have 1 day for each day absent.
Because of block, come to me the next day even if we don’t meet and get your assignment.
Tutoring/: Students are encouraged to come in for extra help before school (7 am) on B Days
Extra Help and after school (by appointment). Students may also schedule extra help during my off
hours. Students may also seek extra help through the A+ office during their tutoring times.
(check the tiger bulletin for tutoring days and times)
Passes and Passes will be given at my discretion. Do not come to me at the beginning of class
Breaks and ask to go to the restroom. Go and take a tardy.
Breaks are not mandatory. We will most likely take a 5 min. break during the class.
Breaks are to be used for the restroom and water, not the tiger post or vending machines.
(ask permission if you want to go to any of those places)
If breaks are abused by any member of the class, then they will only be given on an

Grievance procedure: (college credit students only)
Students who have concerns about this course (i.e. lecture content, examination questions, etc.)
should consult first with the instructor directly involved. If the above issues are not resolved
satisfactorily for the student at this stage, then the course coordinator should be consulted if a team
taught course is concerned. If such issues are not resolved satisfactorily at the stage further review
may proceed through the head of the Academic Division of the School of Biological Sciences
responsible for the teaching of this course. No other sequences of procedures or avenues of
discourse are acceptable for appropriate consideration of issues arising in courses taught by the
school faculty and will not be honored. Any concerns regarding final course grades must be
addressed to the course coordinator within six weeks of the beginning of the next regular semester.
