MWF, 12:00-12:50 09 Carrington HallBIOL 252 Shemer Fall 2011, pg. 1Human Anatomy and Physiology BIOL 252 (sections 4-6) Fall 2011MWF, 12:00-12:50 09 Carrington HallBIOL 252 is an introductory course of human anatomy and physiology. While it is an introductorycourse, it is quite comprehensive and demanding. The course is composed of three lectures and one lab session each week. The lab will cover mainly theanatomy of the human body, and the lectures will be focused on human physiology, covering our 12body systems, starting from the nervous and ending with the reproductive system. For a detailedschedule, please look at the excel spreadsheet in the course website or on Blackboard.YOUR INSTRUCTOR Dr. Gidi Shemer Wilson Hall G41Office hours: Tuesdays and Wednesdays 2-4, or by appointment Web page: http://www.bio.unc.edu/Faculty/Shemer/ Email: [email protected]: 1. The TEXT for this course is Anatomy and Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function (6th edition), by Kenneth Saladin. The text is required. What I mean by required, is that I think any student who chooses to not USE the text will be at a distinct disadvantage. The ISBN is : 00774969142. The textbook is available in the bookstore. This text comes with a web-based software package called CONNECT that will be the medium through which you will be quizzed and receive short pre-lecture and pre-lab assignments. The package also includes an interactive eBook, physiology simulations, animations, and some other interactive tools. The Connect link to this course is http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com/class/g_shemer_fall_20113. If you prefer to buy a used textbook (the 5th edition), this will also work. In this case however, you will need to buy an access code for the Connect system (which is not an integral part of the 5th edition). You can buy Connect online (it costs $50) here:http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com/class/g_shemer_fall_2011 TUTORINGThe biology peer tutoring program offers free tutoring Mon-Thur evenings. Six of my best students who excelled in this class will be happy to assist you. Come with your textbook and make sure you come with specific questions. Remember, the tutors are there to help you, not to do the work for you. The tutoring schedule can be found here: http://www.bio.unc.edu/Undergraduate/PDF/Bio_tutor_center_schedule.pdfBIOL 252 Shemer Fall 2011, pg. 2LABLabs are shared by all students from all sections. They will be taught by Teaching Assistants, and coordinated by Dr. Corey Johnson, who teaches BIOL 252 for sections 001-003.ATTENDANCEStudents are expected to attend and participate in lectures and labs. While the course follows the textbook, some of the material discussed in lecture may not be found in the text. You are responsible for all material and announcements made in lectures. You are not responsible for textbook material that was not covered in class, unless it was specifically assigned. Homework and assignment will be given and posted on Blackboard under “assignments”.GRADINGThe material taught in the lecture and the lab will be tested separately but the grades are combined for the final course grade. Your grade for this course will be determined as follows: 2 midterm exams and 1 final exam = 22% each = 66%Lab grade: based on lab quizzes and 3 lab exams = 25%Assignments (via CONNECT, see above) = 9% Grades will not be assigned for individual exams, only points; you will be able to see how you did from a posted distribution of scores after each test. Final grades will be assigned on the total number of points for the entire semester:A 93-100 B+ 87-89 C+ 77-79 D+ 66-69 F <60A- 90-92 B 83-86 C 73-76 D 60-65 B- 80-82 C- 70-72Exam questions will be taken from lectures and assigned readings. Exams must be taken on the dates indicated during the regular class period; no makeup exams except in special circumstances, i.e. medicalor family emergency documented in writing. The makeup test may be an oral exam. POLLEVERYWHEREIn this class you will use a polling system to answer questions that I pose during class. You can submit your responses using a mobile phone, laptop or other mobile device with a WiFi connection, such as an iPod Touch or an iPad. Before you can participate, you'll need to create an account. For instructions on how to register to Polleverywhere, please follow the guidelines found on Blackboard and the course website under “Course information”.BIOL 252 Shemer Fall 2011, pg.
