HUMAN ANATOMY SYLLABUS 

TEXT

Hole's Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology (2017)

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Human Anatomy is a course intended for students interested in Physical Education, Kinesiology, Nursing, Pre-Med., or any other medical related field. The knowledge gained in Human Anatomy will prepare the student for the first year of college anatomy.

 

PREREQUISITE

A student must have completed Physical Science and Biology 1, with at least a "C" average in both of those courses, OR have instructor approval.

 

COURSE CONTENT

The Human Anatomy course is designed to provide adequate knowledge in the following areas of the biological sciences:

1. Organization of the Body

2. Anatomy and Physiology of Cells and Tissues

3. Anatomy and Physiology of the Skeletal System

4. Anatomy and Physiology of the Muscular System

5. Anatomy and Physiology of the Cardiovascular System

6. Anatomy and Physiology of the Respiratory System

7. Anatomy and Physiology of the Digestive System

8. Anatomy and Physiology of the Reproductive System

9. Anatomy and Physiology of the Urinary System

10. Anatomy and Physiology of the Nervous System

11. Basic Anatomical Dissection Procedures

 

COURSE REQUIREMENTS

In order for the student to achieve a passing grade, an accumulative grade of at least a 70% is required. Borderline grades will be made at the discretion of the instructor. Your grade will be based upon, but not limited to the following objectives:

TESTS & QUIZZES 40% OF THE TOTAL GRADE
LAB ACTIVITIES & PARTICIPATION 20% OF THE TOTAL GRADE
ASSIGNMENTS* 40% OF THE TOTAL GRAD

*Although only 40% of your grade is determined by this, complete understanding of the material will not be achieved unless all assignments are completed. Most of your tests and quizzes will be based on material covered in your assignments.

 

Attendance Policy

Biology 1 students will follow the attendance policy that is outlined in the 2022-2023 Student Handbook.  Students accumulating more than 8 total absences during a semester MAY not receive credit for the first semester.  Some discretion will be taken under consideration for extended illnesses or circumstances beyond the student's control.  These will be handled on a case-by-case issue.

Unexcused absences will result in receiving no credit for the items missed during the time the student was absent.  It is up to the student to be responsible and be in attendance when school is in session.  One of the biggest predictors of academic success or failure is attendance.  Those that have good attendance records have a better chance of academic success.  Those with poor attendance records do not.  It is that simple.

For example:  If a student has an unexcused absence on the day of a test, he/she will not receive credit for that test.

 

SEMESTER TEST OPT-OUT OPTION

A student will be able to opt out of one of the semester tests provided during the year.  If a student opts out of the first semester test, he/she will be required to take the second semester final exam.

Students who wish to opt out must meet the following requirements:

1. student must not have any computer or disciplinary violations during the semester

2. a student must have completed ALL assignments for Human Anatomy (does not have any zeros in the grade book)

3. student must have at least a B- as a grade in order to be able to opt out

4.  student can only opt out of one Human Anatomy semester exam (if you opt out of the first semester. . . you must take the second semester exam).
