Biology 242 A (3 – 1 – 3)

Human Anatomy and Physiology

Spring 2013 Time: M/W: 11:40 – 1:00

Instructor: Dr. B. Luke

Office: Gymnasium #2 , Local: 3703


Course Description:

A study of human systems relating to anatomy and physiology. Emphasis on structure, function, adaptations, and integrative and regulatory mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis and integrity of the human body. Special focus will be on the brain and cranial nerves, spinal cord/nerves, nervous system, general senses, special senses, digestion, lymphatic, renal, acid base balance, endocrine and reproductive systems.

Prerequisites: BIOL 241 or consent of the instructor.
Objectives:

1. To provide an insight into the systems and mechanisms of human anatomy and physiology of the major organ systems.

2. To gain a better understanding of the relationship between structure and function of organ systems.

3. To develop a greater appreciation of the complexity and potential of the human body.

4. To obtain a sound understanding of those aspects of anatomy and physiology relating to the following:

(a) adaptations to stimuli

(b) maintenance of homeostasis under various conditions

(c) changes in structure and function under conditions of health, life style, and disease.

5. To demonstrate (in the laboratory) concepts covered in lectures.

6. To develop a Christian perspective of anatomy and physiology by:

(a) cultivating an understanding of the inter-relatedness of faith, anatomy and physiology.

(b) using our biological knowledge/skills to help individuals via the medical or paramedical professions.

(c) addressing issues facing professionals in the fields of Human Kinetics and Nursing, and other health science fields.

Tutorial:


There will be a weekly optional tutorial to assist students in understanding the concepts presented in lectures and labs. Students are encouraged to attend with questions or as topics reflect a particular area of assistance needed. The specific topic of each tutorial will be announced in class each week.

* You must decide which option you select before week 2 of class as RQ will be due beginning week 2.




Labs:


1. Attendance is mandatory for all laboratory sessions.

2. Lab coat is required by all students.

3. Lab reports are due 1 week after date of actual lab (at the start of the next lab period).

Attendance/Participation - Laboratory


Attendance at all labs (entire lab time period) is mandatory. All students should come prepared for each lab and arrive on time to ensure each session is used most effectively. There will be a 5% reduction in the lab mark for each unexcused absence and a 3% reduction in the lab grade for each late arrival or early departure. Lab assignments are due at the beginning of the next lab. There will be a quiz at the end of each lab to test understanding of the concepts covered in the lab. These quiz marks will be included in the assessment of the overall grade.
Review Questions: Due at the beginning of the class following completion of the chapter or as indicated by the instructor.
* All late R/Q and Lab assignments will be marked for 50% value for one week. Following that period of time the assignments will not be accepted. (As the class has moved on from the topics that were being reviewed and reinforced.)
To receive credit for the course, a passing grade must be received in both the lab and lecture components.
Grading

This will follow the University-wide standards with the exception that the A+ is reserved for 93-100%.

Exams

It is expected that lab and lecture exams will be written at the designated times. Laboratory exams must be written in the normal lab section. Please do not book travel or departure for “independent study week” or end of term until exam schedules are known.
The University calendar states that an instructor may bar any student from writing the final exam who has been absent for more than ¼ of the classes.

Laboratory/Classroom Environment
I strongly believe that it is the responsibility of the instructor to establish and maintain a positive learning environment to the benefit of the majority of students. Technology in the classroom and lab will have limitations!

To ensure this happens:

  • All cell phones, tablets, etc. will be off and out of sight (in purse, coat, bag) NOT on desk top, lap, or in hand.

  • Computer use in labs/classes will be permitted if on topic for note taking purposes only – the instructor reserves the right to assign seating for those students using a computer in class or lab.

  • This policy will remain in effect during the ENTIRE lab or lecture time- scheduled classroom breaks and tasks assigned are not the time to pull out technology. Please do not plan on walking out of class to answer your cell phone. The instructor reserves the right to assign seating for students using computers or other technology in class.

  • If there is an expectation of an important call during class please advise the instructor ahead of time.

  • Due to copyright “issues”, please do not take pictures in the laboratory.

  • It is expected that each student will plan ahead and arrive at class on time and plan on staying the entire class. Late or early departures are disruptive to the class environment.
