First semester for two-semester sequence BIOL 2010 and 2015

Prerequisites:         BIOL 1010 or instructor's permission.

Catalog Description: This 2-semester sequence provides the student with the basic knowledge in
anatomy and physiology of the human body with emphasis on the relationship between body structure and
function. Each functional system is considered in terms of its cell, tissue and organ types. Fundamental
information in the areas of chemistry and physics as related to the structure and function of the body is also
included. Laboratory is required.

Transferability: The 2-semester sequence transfers as UW ZOO 2040 & 2110.
This course also fulfills the WWCC lab science requirement for graduation. Keep this course outline for
future transferability issues with other schools.

Course Objectives: At the completion of this course the student should be able to:
       1.      Identify anatomical structures of the human body on models, charts and diagrams, skeletons,
               dissection photos and dissected material and correlate them to their functions.
       2.      Describe the mechanisms of metabolism on the biochemical, cellular, organ and organ system
       3.      Describe how the body is organized and the role each system plays in the overall function of the
               human body.
       4.      Identify cells, tissues, organs, organ systems and their interactions.
       5.      Use terminology correctly and spell the more frequently used terms correctly.
       7.      Demonstrate dissection skills.
       8.      Be an active team member and work effectively in a group.
       9.      Demonstrate oral and written skills.

Goals for student success: This two-semester course should help you meet many of the WWCC goals for
student success (table).

Grading Policy
          o   Lecture Exams, Quizzes, and Homework:
               There will be 4 lecture exams worth 50 points each (see course outline for material covered
                  in each test). Each test covers material since the previous exam and is not cumulative. The
                  final is a cumulative exam at 16 weeks worth 200 points: Test 5 (over material since Test 4)
                  comprises 50 of those points and 150 points come from previous tests. All lecture exams
                  will cover lecture, movie, text, Media Phys and AP Revealed assigned lab sections and lab
               There will be 2 lecture homework assignments worth 20 points each.
      o   Labs
               Lab Exams:
                       o There will be weekly on line lab quizzes (10 points each) on that week’s lab.
                       o There will be 2 lab practicals on bones (25 points) and muscles (25 points).
               Lab Reports: There will be weekly Lab Reports (10 points each- 1 point is attendance).
                  (Note to instructors: You have discretion in the grading value of lab reports. We
                  sometimes count them as part of a lab exam grade, and sometimes consider them
               Late lab reports and lab quizzes will not be graded or accepted unless arrangements
                  have been made with the instructor PRIOR TO THE DEADLINE.
      o   There are no make-up lecture exams, lab quizzes or labs. If the reason for the inability to meet a
          deadline is excused by the instructor (death in family, illness requiring hospitalization or quarantine,
          childbirth, accident or serious emergency), an opportunity will be presented to make up the lost
          points but not the lab or quiz.
               Reasons for not making a deadline must be documented before I will consider excusing
               If your reason for missing a lecture exam is among the circumstances that are excused, you
                  may count the last 50 questions (Exam 5) from the final for the exam you missed as well as
                  for that section of the final. (Note to instructors: You have discretion in this policy).
      o Grading Standard:
              90 - 100% of total points = A
              80 - 89% of total points = B
              70 - 79% of total points = C
              60 - 69% of total points = D
              Grades are rounded up from .5 to .9. For example: 89.4 is an 89 while 89.5 is a 90.
Incomplete Policy: You may request the grade of “I” (Incomplete) after the mid-point of the course when
unexpected circumstances, such as illness or military service, make it impossible for you to complete the
remaining work by the end of the semester. You must, however, be passing the course with a “C” or better at
the mid-point of the course. The purpose of an incomplete, therefore, is not to repeat the entire course but to
complete no more than 50% of the grade. It is your responsibility to initiate this process, but an Incomplete is
assigned solely at the instructor’s discretion. Check the College Catalog for the entire policy.

   Labs encompass some time consuming activities that will help you to review and apply lecture. Each lab
    will have on-line and on-campus components. You will each be given a Blackboard password by
    letter when you enroll in the class. There are weekly deadlines for lab assignments and quizzes.
         o Please check the Announcement page for your section weekly and your e-mail daily for any
              changes to the lab or lecture schedule.
   Please try out Media Phys and Anatomy Physiology Revealed as soon as you get them to be sure they
    work. They are used extensively in the labs. Bring your copies to lab with you on Tuesdays.
     Labs and lab quizzes will be on-line the Wednesday previous to the Tuesday lab. Directions for
         the on-line component are given in general lab directions in the first week’s lab folders of the
         Blackboard class under Labs/Assignments. Once you practice the procedures involved, uploading and
         downloading will be simple.
     You are expected to attend lab each lab day on campus for farther information you may need and
         for the hands-on component. Your attendance will be 1 point of the 10 points for lab.
              o Remember to download the lab, lab quiz, lab report answer sheet and lab quiz answer sheet.
                  Do as much of the online lab and quiz as you can before you come to lab on campus that
                  week. That way, you can ask questions and clarify any problems as we do the hands on
              o Upload the completed answer sheets after or during Tuesday’s lab. The completed lab report
                  answer sheet and lab quiz answer sheet must be returned to me on-line by midnight of the
                  lab (Tuesday). Because your on-line server or the one on campus can go down, please don’t
                  wait until the last minute to complete assignments. This will not be considered a valid excuse
                  for missing deadlines.
     During the first lab day on campus, I will explain the procedure for downloading labs and quizzes and
         uploading lab report answer sheets and lab quiz answer sheets. The directions are also given in each
         week’s lab folder online. If you have never used Blackboard, I will show you how to log in and find your
         section and the correct part of the class. We will work through the first lab and lab quiz together and
         then you can fill out the on-line answer sheets and upload them to me by midnight.
     Group work
         o Most of my students have liked dividing up the lab work somewhat. However, each member of the
              group needs to come to the on campus lab with the lab and lab quiz mostly done. This way you
              can ask me questions about unclear questions. I will do spot checks of each person’s work in
              lab to eliminate any parasites. Compare all you want, but don’t do someone else’s work for
         o You may turn in one group lab report answer sheet and lab quiz answer sheet with all members’
              names on it. However, even if you work as a group and split up who will upload the quiz or report
              each week, if it isn’t uploaded by the deadline, the whole group will get a zero. To avoid this: I
              would suggest you
                  o communicate adequately and divide the work up in writing so that you know who in the
                      group will put it all together and upload your group lab quiz and lab report for that week or
                  o upload your group lab quiz and lab report answer sheets together in the Anatomy lab at the
                      end of Tuesday’s lab so that you know they are uploaded before the deadline.
          Be selective about your group. If it isn’t working effectively, talk to me about changing groups.
          You may also elect to work by yourself or work with the group but upload your answers
              independently so you know they’re posted on time.
Appropriate student behavior: One of the College’s goals is to See Issues from Multiple Perspectives.
Therefore, part of this class will involve hearing and reading perspectives different from your own. Everyone in
class has a right to learn and express their views in a comfortable environment, so please be considerate of
others' rights to hear, take notes or exams, express their ideas and participate in the class. College Policy
5420A states that "the College can immediately suspend or dismiss a student for disciplinary reasons if the
college considers the student's actions detrimental to its educational purposes." Walking in late, talking while
teacher is lecturing or other students are discussing, having cell phones ring, failing to use Netiquette on line
etc., are all behaviors which disrupt.
