Web site: http://academic.pgcc.edu/~tpefok http://academic.pgcc.edu/AandP Office hours: TTh, 10:30 – 11: 00 AM Other times may be available by appointment. Weekly Class Schedule: Section: LD06 LEC TR, 8: 30 AM – 9:45 AM CH 115 REC TR, 9:45 AM – 10:15 AM CH 115 LAB TR, 7:00 AM – 8:20 AM CH 209 Course Description Human A&P I is a study of the structures and functions of human body systems with emphasis on cells, transport, tissues, and integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems. BIO 1010 and DVM 007 are prerequisites for BIO 2050! I expect students in BIO 2050 to have a basic understanding of biological principles and mathematical skills, as appropriate for someone who has successfully passed both BIO 1010 and DVM 007. You will find BIO 2050 particularly difficult if you do not have a basic understanding of general biological principles and mathematics. Course Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, I expect you will be able to do the following: 1. Demonstrate your understanding of the complementarity between structure and function that exists within each body system explored during this course. 2. Illustrate your understanding of homeostasis as it applies to each of the body systems studied during this course. 3. Summarize your knowledge of the hierarchal nature of the anatomical organization of the human body systems studied in this course. 4. Explain and apply the critical information (delineated in the Instructional Course Objectives) for each body system studied in this course: integumentary, skeletal, nervous, and muscular. 5. Illustrate your understanding of the mechanisms by which cells receive nourishment and rid themselves of wastes through exchanges between the extracellular and intracellular compartments. 6. Demonstrate the correct operation of the compound microscope under all of the magnifications utilized during this course. Textbook and Other Course Materials  Marieb, E.N. & Hoehn, K. 2009.

Your grade will be determined by your performance on the following assignments: Five lecture exams 100 points each Four laboratory exams 100 points each Total points 900 points Final letter grades will be assigned according to the following scale: A 810 points or higher B 720-809 points C 630 -719 points D 540-629 points F less than 540 points I may give a quiz at any time during a lecture or lab without prior notice. I will not give any make up quizzes! Assignments must be completed and turned in on a timely basis. No assignment will be accepted after given datelines (No Exceptions!!!). Points earned from assignments and quizzes will be counted as extra credit points, which cannot exceed 3% of total available points. Assignments and quizzes cannot be made up!!! All lecture exams will be given in class. Make-up exams will not be given unless extreme circumstances arise (e.g., hospitalization) and documentation is provided to me. (Any make-up exams, if given, will be administered during finals week) If you do miss an exam, then contact me as soon as possible to discuss the possibility (no guarantee!) of a make-up exam. I will announce specific dates for each lecture exam as I cover the material. Approximate time frames can be discerned from the “Lecture and Exam Schedule,” which appears on the last page of this syllabus. Attendance Policy I expect students to attend all class meetings. I will keep a record of attendance at lectures and labs. If your grade at the end of the semester is within a few points of a higher letter grade, then your attendance record will be given serious consideration when I decide whether or not to assign the higher grade. Classroom Etiquette I expect you to be on-time for all class meetings and to remain in class until I dismiss the class. If you must enter or exit the classroom while class is in session, then please do so discretely. Use the back door whenever you are late. Pagers and cell phones should be silenced during class!

CODE OF CONDUCT The Prince George's Community College Code of Conduct defines the rights and responsibilities of students and establishes a system of procedures for dealing with students charged with violations of the code and other rules and regulations of the college. A student enrolling in the college assumes an obligation to conduct himself/herself in a manner compatible with the college's function as an educational institution. Refer to the 2009-2010 Student Handbook, beginning on page 37, for a complete explanation of the Code of Conduct, including the Code of Academic Integrity and the procedure for dealing with disruptive student behavior. CODE OF ACADEMIC INTEGRITY The college is an institution of higher learning that holds academic integrity as its highest principle. In the pursuit of knowledge, the college community expects that all students, faculty, and staff will share responsibility for adhering to the values of honesty and unquestionable integrity. To support a community committed to academic achievement and scholarship, the Code of Academic Integrity advances the principle of honest representation in the work that is produced by students seeking to engage fully in the learning process. The complete text of the Code of Academic Integrity is in the 2009-2010 Student Handbook (pages 39-41) and posted on the college's website.

Campus Bookstore 301-322-0912 Largo Student Center, Room 116 www.pgcc.edu/pgweb/pgdocs/bookstore.html Final Exams Lecture exam V will be given during finals week. This exam will include a number of comprehensive questions, which will assess your knowledge of the material learned throughout the semester. The goals of the comprehensive portion of the exam are to encourage you to (1) review information you learned throughout the semester, and (2) think critically about relationships between concepts you learned throughout the semester. At least 30% of the points on the final will be based on comprehensive questions. The comprehensive portion of the exam will contain questions that fall into two categories: 1. Recall questions will assess your ability to remember basic facts learned throughout the semester. The following question is an example of a recall question: What is the main chemical ingredient of a plasma membrane’s lipid bilayer? a. cholesterol b. glycoprotein c. phospholipid d. lactic acid e. glucose 2. Synthesis questions will assess your ability to think critically and link concepts you learned throughout the semester. The following question is an example of a synthesis question: During the process of excitation-contraction coupling, there is net movement of calcium ions from the lumen of the sarcoplasmic reticulum into the myofibrils. This movement of calcium ions is an example of a. osmosis. b. simple diffusion. c. active transport. d. endocytosis. e. facilitated diffusion. More information about the final exam, including dates and times will be provided as the semester comes to a close. By the way, the answer to the recall question shown above is “c. phospholipid,” and the answer to the synthesis question is “e. facilitated diffusion.” Laboratory: http://academic.pgcc.edu/AandP Information pertaining specifically to the laboratory will be distributed in the laboratory. You are expected to clean up after yourself following lab activities. This means that you must, for example, return models to their correct counters, return prepared slides to their specific slide trays, and wash and dry dissecting tools and then return them to their assigned bins.  Lecture and Exam Schedule Material covered in the lectures will generally follow the organization of your textbook. However, I will be adding some of my own material and skipping certain sections of the text. Pay attention to what I cover in class and the notes that I’ll provide. Here is a tentative schedule for Fall 2009. Actual dates may be adjusted during the semester. Chapter numbers from your text (Marieb, 2009) are given in parentheses.
