Course Description:
      This course is the first of two semester course investigating the structure and function of
      the human body. Topics included in this course: the: cell, integumentary, nervous,
      musculoskeletal, & endocrine systems.

Course Objectives:
      At the completion of this course students will be able to:
      1.      Work with a microscope.
      2.      Identify the various components and specialization of human cells both in
              structure and function.
      3.      Identify and describe the major components of the integumentary, neurological,
              endocrine, skeletal & muscular systems.
      4.      Discuss the movement of sensory and motor impulses.
      5.      Describe the functions of the endocrine system in homeostasis.
      6.      Identify the components and functionality of the muscular and skeletal systems in
              coordination with the nervous system.
      7.      Describe the various types of muscle tissue.
      8.      Describe the structural and functional characteristics of the integument.

Course Prerequisites:
      Completion of high school biology and chemistry. Completion of college level chemistry
      or concurrent enrollment recommended.

Attendance:
      Attendance for this class is mandatory; students are responsible for obtaining information
      for any missed class. Each student is expected to be on time and to stay for the entire lab
      period. Please notify your instructor via email at ddrooger@shepherd.edu if you miss
      any lab. If you need to attend a different lab session please you must obtain approval of
      the instructor prior to the lab period.
      Lab exercises are due at the beginning of the next week’s lab period. They are to be
      removed from the lab manual, stapled, and rough edges removed prior to placing them on
      the instructor’s table in the front of the lab. Labs which are not turned in on time will be
      docked by one point for each day it is late.

Final Exam Policy:
       All students who maintain an average of 90% or greater immediately prior to the final
       exam will be exempt from the comprehensive final exam and will receive an A for the
       course.

Make-up Policy:
There will be 3 lab exams. Lab exams maybe made up only be made up if:
       1. The instructor is notified of the school related scheduling conflict prior to the date
           of the exam and arrangements can be made within one week of the exam.
       2. A medical note can be provided to the instructor and in this case the exam must be
           made up during office hours within one week of the student’s return to class.
       3. Proof of a death in the immediate family is provided to the instructor and in this case
          the exam must be made up during office hours within one week of the students return
          to class.

Safety:
       A safety sheet will be completed by each student at the beginning of the semester and
       those policies must be followed throughout the semester.
       Soft contact lenses can be damaged by the preservatives used in specimens. This damage
       can be permanent. It is recommended that students wear glasses rather than contact for
       labs.
       The following attire is required for participation in lab experiences; long sleeve shirts or
       lab coats and closed toe shoes.
       MSDS sheets are located in the lab at all times.
       Please wear minimal eye makeup (mascara) to protect the optics of the microscope.

Academic Integrity:
Academic Dishonesty will NOT be tolerated (please see the “Academic Information” section of
the Shepherd College Catalog for a description of Academic Dishonesty). All parties
participating in such activity will receive a grade of zero for the assignment. Should a second
offense occur: the party or parties will receive a final course grade of “F” and the offense will be
reported to the dean of the department.
