Analysis of skeletal, muscular, sensorimotor, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Recommended preparation: high school biology and chemistry, or BIOL 1001 (or 1005) and BIOL 1002; CHEM 1100 or 1601 (or 1605). Not open to students with credit for BIOL 2011. Not for Biology B.S. degree credit. Four hrs. lect., 3 hrs. lab. Students that do not have the recommended preparation will be at a disadvantage as this background is assumed when teaching new information. We do this to maximize the success of students in this and other courses. If you think you have the equivalent background without having the courses on your transcript, please contact your instructor with evidence (transcripts, syllabi). Required: 1. Marieb, Human Anatomy and Physiology, (9th ed), Pearson (e-book only $44) 2. Mastering A&P (MAP), online quizzes & reviews ($66 purchase online if not part of bundle) 3. iClicker (any model should work; can be shared as long as other student not in this class) Recommended: 5. The Physiology Coloring Book by Kapit, Macey & Neisami, Harper & Row Publ., 1987 6. Essential Study Skills for Science Students, Daniel D. Chiras. Brooks/Cole Pub Co. (October, 1999) ISBN: 0534375952. It only costs $3 (or 1 cent used) and has a lot of excellent info on how to study effectively. I highly, highly recommend it. Read it now! Course Requirements: There are 3 multiple choice exams (2 midterms plus a comprehensive final exam ) on or about the date specified in the lecture syllabus. There will also be on-line quizzes based on the reading, so you need to keep on schedule. Exam dates may need to be changed depending upon rate of progress through the lecture material. If your average % score on the midterms and quizzes is 90% or higher, then you won't need to take the final exam and are exempt from that exam. The comprehensive final will comprise about 20% of the course grade for those who take it. The lab will make up the remainder of the course grade (25%). A passing grade in lab is required to receive a passing grade in the course. Midterms 1 and 2 (15% & 15%) 30% Mastering A&P (MAP) homework 10% Class participation (clickers; tutors) 5% Online Quizzes (MAP) 10% Final exam 20% Lab grade 25% Total 100% Office hours and study habits: Please come visit during my office hours. Feel free to stop by to chat, or to clarify something from class or the reading materials. Sometimes students do not seek help until after they have performed poorly on an exam, so I encourage you to visit with me, the tutors, and your lab TAs early and often. Please realize that we are here to help you, not to trip you up with tough exams. We all have the same goal—for students to learn and master the concepts of human anatomy and physiology. But it can be hard for us to help, unless we know you need help. To find out if you need help, please ask questions in class, by email, or Blackboard. Form study groups and study together regularly. Read the text and take notes, takeonline quizzes, and do questions at the end of each chapter. Educational research indicates that the most effective learning requires 2-3 h outside class studying for every 1 hour in class—so that means 10-15 h per week outside class studying! If you make these efforts, you will greatly benefit. It is important in your future professions to become 'active learners'. This means that you take responsibility for your own learning and actively seek out the knowledge you require. Our class is large, but please do not accept "not understanding"! If you don't understand, don't think that you are the only one who did not get it, and be embarrassed to ask a question. It is my pleasure (and my paid responsibility) to HELP you understand. Class time is most productive and enjoyable when it is a two-way communication
