Prerequisite: Bio 130, 131
Course Description: Study of the function and interrelationships of the nervous, endocrine, muscular,
circulatory, respiratory, digestive, exocrine and reproductive systems of the human body. Emphasizes the
homeostatic nature of these systems with some reference to human disease states. AA/AS, GE, CSU, CSU
GE, IGETC, UC

Course Content Objective:
Students will be able to do the following upon course completion
    - Demonstrate understanding of the functions of the physiological systems in the human body
    - Demonstrate an appreciation and depth of understanding of physiological homeostasis as the
       unifying principle in the ongoing function of living systems, from the cellular to the organismal level.
    - Apply the general methods and critical thought processes of life science.
    - Compare and contrast normal physiology to disease.
Student Evaluation and Grade Assignment:
   - 4 Quizzes ………………….25pts each (drop one quiz)
   - 5 Exams……………..……100pts each
   - 24 Homework…....……….5pts each
           Total class points = 720

Quizzes: Questions will be taken from material covered in class. You are responsible for material discussed
in class whether or not it is in the textbook. You are not responsible for textbook material that was not
discussed in class. Quizzes are given at the beginning of class. If you are late, you cannot take the
quiz. You must take the quiz on the day it is offered. THERE IS NO OPPORTUNITY TO MAKEUP A
QUIZ NO MATTER WHAT THE EXCUSE.
I will drop the lowest quiz score, including a 0 if you miss one quiz.

Exams: In order to pass this class, your exam grades must average to at least a D (60% - 69%).
Questions will be taken from material covered in class. You are responsible for material discussed in class
whether or not it is in the textbook. You are not responsible for material that was not discussed in class.
Check the schedule today and often for exam dates. Makeup exam will only be considered for extreme
documented emergencies or illnesses. It is in your best interest to not schedule anything on exam day. If
you miss an exam, the format for the makeup may be different and most students find it much more difficult
that the original exam. It will only be given on final exam day, so you will end up taking 2 exams that day.
Consider this before making a decision to miss an exam. YOU MAY NOT LEAVE THE ROOM DURING AN
EXAM UNTIL YOU HAVE FINISHED THE EXAM. THIS INCLUDES BATHROOM BREAKS.
                                Grade Breakdown:
                                90 – 100% A
                                80 – 89% B
                                70 – 79% C
                                60 – 69% D
                                59% and below F
I reserve the right to make changes during the semester to schedules, topics, assignments, tests etc.
                             in order to optimize the progress of the class.

Extra credit: There is no extra credit offered in this class.

Tutoring: To support your efforts to succeed in this class, I recommend you visit the Tutor Center in the
LRC. I was told last semester that they had a good Physiology tutor in there. If this doesn’t work out for you,
come see me during my office hours! Also, ask your lab instructor for help.

Absences: Attendance is very important if you want to succeed in this class!! You are expected to attend
each meeting, arrive on time and stay for the entire class period.

Cell phones: Turn them off before coming into the classroom. Any type of cell use (talking, checking
messages, text messaging, etc.) is inappropriate in the classroom. Sending text messages during class is
distracting even if you think you are hiding it under your desk!!!!!! Cell phones and any electronic device
will not be tolerated during exams! If I see your electronic device at any time in the classroom on test
day, your exam will be confiscated and you will be given a 0 on that exam.

Things to remember:
    Attend class regularly and participate.
    Refrain from conversations while I or one of your fellow students is talking.
    NO cell phones, pagers, or anything else that makes noise in the classroom. Turn them off
       before class starts.
    NO CHEATING OR PLAGIARISM!! This includes copying your friends or anyone else’s homework
       assignment. It also includes cutting and pasting answers from a website. Your work must be written
       in your own words. Any copying or cheating will result in a 0 on the assignment or test. No makeup
       will be given for an exam or assignment given a 0 for cheating.
    Give me your feedback! Let me know if something I said was unclear. I’ll clear it up for everyone!
    Keep all quizzes/exams/assignments that I return to you. If there is a problem with your grade, it is
       your responsibility to show me the original document.
    If you are struggling with the material, please see me! Sometimes some one on one really helps!
    If you choose to drop the course IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO DO SO!
    I cannot give grades over email. Please do not ask me to do so.

Study tips:
    Research has shown you should spend at least 2 hours studying for every hour you are in class. We
        meet for 2.5 hours per week, so that means you should be spending a minimum of 5 hours of study
        time.
    TAKE NOTES DURING CLASS! Do not rely on the powerpoint slides.
    Review your notes shortly after class. The lecture is still fresh in your mind, and this way you can
        clear up any inconsistencies in your notes and commit what you learned to memory. Rewrite your
        notes if they are hard to read. You may bring a tape recorder to class.
    Form study groups. This is extremely helpful. Explaining concepts to someone else helps you to
        understand the concept even more. Hearing the concept explained in a different way from a peer
        may clear up confusion from the class.
    See me during office hours. Sometimes one on one really helps.

Students with disabilities who may need academic accommodations should discuss options with me during
the first class session. Disabled Students Programs and Services can be reached at 660-4239.
