COURSE GOAL:
     The general goal of this course is to prepare students for their future health science
program and for their future careers in the health sciences. The more specific goals are to help
students become familiar with the structure and function of the human body, the interactions
of the body organs with one another and with the environment; and to help them develop the
following skills and work habits:
    1) observing, attention to detail, accuracy, and note taking skills
    2) accurate and precise oral and written communication and teaching skills
    3) efficient and disciplined study skills which includes
        Initiative and self motivation
        Ability in organizing and prioritizing tasks
        Analytical and problem solving skills, and
        Ability to follow through
    3) interpersonal skills and ability to cooperate with others

COURSE OBJECTIVES:            The topics of study are organized into 4 units:
  Unit 1:  Overview of Physiology, Digestive System and Metabolism
    Unit 2:      Endocrine System, Nerve Tissue, and Visual and Auditory System,
    Unit 3:      Motor and Sensory Systems, Peripheral and Central Nervous System
    Unit 4:      Urinary system, Fluid, Electrolyte, and Acid-base Balance, and
                 Reproductive system

REQUIRED MATERIALS:
  1) Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology by Martini & Nath, 8th Edition
    2) Human Anatomy and Physiology Lab Manual, Main Version, by Marieb, 8th ed.
    3) Biology 242 Course Guide (purchase from copy center - room BE3105a)
    4) 4 Scan-Tron Forms #883



                                                -2-
RECOMMENDED MATERIALS:
    1) A set of color pens/pencils.
    2) one or more packs of blank 3 x 5 index cards.
    3) A.D.A.M. Interactive Anatomy 4 Student Lab Guide with DVD by Lafferty &
    Panella (This software allows you to dissect the human body on the computer)
    4) A Guide to Anatomy and Physiology by Rust
    5) Coloring Book of Physiology by Kapit and Elson or other Anatomy and Physiology
       coloring book or workbook (like by Marieb).


EXAMS:
    Whenever a student is absent it is his/her responsibility to learn what he/she
    has missed, including announcement of exam schedule change. EXAMS MUST
    BE TAKEN AT DATE AND TIME SPECIFIED. Any change in the date/time of
    any exam will be announced in class some time before the exam date. NO
    LATE OR MAKE UP EXAMS EXCEPT FOR EMERGENCIES (in which case the
    student MUST contact the instructor as soon as possible, preferably before the
    exam. Limited to one per quarter! Point deduction may be incurred for any
    makeup exams depending upon reason for absence and promptness in
    notifying instructor. Any exam missed will be scored as 0. All exams will be
    picked up promptly. No extra time is given to students arriving late.

GRADING PHILOSOPHY:
The grade a student receives in my course is not based on how little or much a student studies
or put into the course but primarily on two factors. The grade is first an evaluation of the
student's proficiency and familiarity with the material. Secondly it is an evaluation of the
student's skill in communication concerning the material. All this in the context of a quarter,
where a student must balance all their other classes, work, family, and life in general using
their skills in foresight, planning, scheduling, prioritizing, and self-discipline. This is how most
(if not, all) nursing courses grade their students. That is why I do not give points for
assignments, homework, or papers.


I have had (and probably will continue to have) students who, due to circumstances beyond
their control (accidents, sickness, deaths, and others) had to miss a few days of classes. It is
because of this, as well as other reasons that I give bonus points on each test.


Through our class you will improve your study skills and skills in foresight, planning,
scheduling, prioritizing, and self-discipline (becoming familiar with anatomy and physiology
along the way). As you master these skills I am confident that even if you missed a few days of
class (due to circumstances beyond your control) or if you blow one exam, the bonus points will
help decrease the adverse effect of these on your grade. If you miss too many classes you
should consider the alternative to the regular grade (see Alternative Grades on the next page).



                                                -3-
EVALUATION OF STUDENT PERFORMANCE:

  Attendance Requirement: Students must attend at least 50% of the lab
  meetings. No matter how well a student do on the exams the highest
  grade a student can get if he/she attends less than 50% of the lab meetings
  is 1.9. (Attendance is defined as participating in lab at least 50 minutes of
  each lab period)

Your proficiency in the course material will be evaluated based upon your performance on 4
unit exams during the quarter each worth 25%. Your course grade will be calculated as follows:
       OVERALL                               93% - 100% =      4.0     (A)
    PERFORMANCE                              88% - 92% = 3.5 - 3.9     (A)
                                             78% - 87% = 2.5 - 3.4     (B)
                                             68% - 77% = 1.5 - 2.4     (C)
                                             60% - 67% = 0.7 - 1.4     (D)
                                             below 60% = 0.0           (E)
   If the class average at the end of the quarter is below 78%, the grade scale will be adjusted
   so that the class average will be the grade 2.5.

ALTERNATIVE GRADES:
  W   Withdrawal. The last day for withdrawal is May 28.
   I      Incomplete. Given only to students who performed at a passing level (70%) but did
   not complete the course requirements and wish to complete them by the next quarter. Must
   be requested by student.
   N      Audit. Requires official registration. If requirements for N are not satisfied, the
   instructor may issue a NC grade. The last day to change to an audit is May 28.
   NC      No Credit. Student did not fulfill the course requirements. Student in good standing
   (has an overall performance of 60% or better) may request a NC from an instructor prior
   to the final exam. This grade is granted at the instructor's discretion.

INABILITY TO COMPLETE THE COURSE DUE TO UNFORESEEN
CIRCUMSTANCES:
   If a student for any reason stops attending/participating in class (e.g. do not take exams)
   he/she should initiate one of the above alternative grade options if he/she satisfies the
   necessary requirements. Talk to me about the options available for your particular
   situation. If a student does not initiate one of the alternative grade options he/she will be
   given the grade earned with each missed exam scored as zero.

SPECIAL ACCOMMODATIONS:
   Students with documented disabilities, who need course accommodations, have emergency
   medical information or require special arrangements for building evacuation should
   contact the instructor within the first two weeks of class.

NOTIFICATION OF QUARTER GRADE:
  You may check the result of your Unit 4 Exam and your course grade on the instructor’s
  website by Monday afternoon following our final exam. The information will be posted
  according to the course ID code randomly assigned to you during the quarter. Unit 4 Exam
  papers will not be returned, but are kept by the instructor in his record files.
