Only ONE lab make-up exam per student per semester. Lab make-ups are given at the discretion of the lab instructor. Regular lecture attendance is recommended. – You MUST be here for all tests unless other arrangements have been made. Exams Students have a choice between: – taking the normal in-class lecture exams including multiple choice, matching, short- answer and fill-in parts of the test; OR – taking essay exams in the testing center Most questions are based on material found in the supplement Most multiple choice questions come from a test bank created for the textbook Exams “My A&P Place” (available through http://www.mariebmap.com) includes self-quizzes for each chapter of the book. The course number is available through my homepage. Students with other textbooks can purchase it (see me for help) Make-up Exams Only ONE lecture make-up exam per student per semester (students who need to take more than 1 MUST switch to the alternative essay testing format) Make-up exams will be entirely essay in format and taken during the week following the date of the exam missed; make-up exams may not be graded until AFTER the course drop date. Exams Make-up exams consist of 10-12 questions of which the student must answer 7-9 to the best of her/his ability. In-class Group Work There will be ungraded in-class group work (Think-Pair-Share). Students will work in groups of 2-4 students to answer the questions. We will discuss them as a class if time permits. Answers will also be available through the web versions of the presentations. The questions are included in the lecture supplement. You may want to read through the appropriate sections before coming to class. Think-Pair-Share: Getting Started in A&P II Given the following, list at least 3 things from general biology and at least 5 from A&P I that you should know to succeed in A&P II A&P I topics A&P II topics anatomical terms cardiovascular system histology resistance to disease integumentary system respiratory system nervous system digestive system – electrophysiology nutrition and thermo- – brain regulation – ANS urinary system endocrine system fluid and electrolyte balance muscular system and acid/base balance skeletal system reproductive system Suggestions for Success See “Tips for Success in A&P” on the web Come prepared to learn – bring supplies (pen/pencil, paper, lecture supplement, highlighters), textbook Make flashcards for terms – this is especially helpful for spelling (Yes, I do take off for spelling on lab exams. Check with your lab instructor if you have someone else) Suggestions for Success Form a study group (two – or more – heads really are better than one) – take turns “playing teacher” and explain concepts to each other – quiz each other – the more active you are in your group, the more you will benefit Do not try to memorize the textbook or the notes – Look over the supplement and read through the text before coming to class – You need to know AND understand terms and concepts included in the supplements Suggestions for Success Spring office hours: – Monday and Wednesday 4:30-5:15 PM – Tuesday and Thursday 3:30-4:30 PM – Wednesday 7:00-7:30 PM – Thursday 11:00 AM -12:00 PM I’m here to help you learn, please seek help if you’re having trouble The real work is up to you.
