BIOL 2301—HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY LABORATORY II
(ACTS 2414, when combined with BIOL 2243)
Summer II 2005, B7, Science Center
Instructor: Dr. John Hunt. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Phone: 870-460-1466. Office: B11, Science Center. Office hours: 9:00-10:00, M-F or by appointment.
Texts (required): Allen and Harper, Laboratory Manual for Anatomy and Physiology. Smith and Schenk. A Dissection Guide and Atlas to the Mink.
Objective: To convey a knowledge of basic human anatomy and physiology through hands-on experience in the laboratory. Students will learn anatomy and physiology with a special emphasis on structure and function of internal systems, including exercises which demonstrate physiological principles.
Grading: Grading is on the standard 10-point scale. Points will be computed as a percentage of all available points. In the unlikely event that a small curve is applied to the grade, it will be done at the end of the course. There is no “extra” credit. Points will consist of the following:
Three 100-point exams 300
Quizzes and lab performance 50-100
Attendance: Attendance at all labs and exams is mandatory. Attendance will be recorded regularly, and points are given for attending and completing each lab. Unexcused absences will result in loss of five points from the final average for each absence. After 2 unexcused absences, you may be dropped from the class.
Missed exams: Missed exams may be made up only by students with an approved university excuse, by arrangement with the instructor. Approved university excuses do not include “hung over,” “overslept,” or “got caught up in a Real World marathon and lost track of time.” Please be aware that any made-up exam may NOT be the same exam given during the normal class period. Students are responsible for all material presented in class, even with an approved university excuse for missing a class. It is the responsibility of the student to obtain missed material from classmates.
Class policies: Human anatomy and physiology is a demanding class, with a large number of terms and concepts to be mastered. Taking the course in a short summer term is even more difficult. Expect to spend every free minute studying. This will cut into your beer-drinking time—please accept my apologies in advance. The instructor is here to help you; please feel free to ask questions at any time. You are encouraged to seek my help outside of regular class hours if you are so inclined.
Please do not hold conversations with classmates during lecture. DO NOT BRING CELL PHONES TO CLASS! If your cell phone rings during my lecture, I will respond in the only manner available to me—by adjusting your grade.
Students with disabilities: It is the policy of the University of Arkansas-Monticello to accommodate students with disabilities in accordance with federal law. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any necessary accommodations at the beginning of the course. Any student requiring accommodations should contact the Office of Special Student Services located in Harris Hall, Room 120, phone 870-460-1026; TDD 870-460-1626; fax 870-460-1926.
Academic dishonesty: Cheating will not be tolerated. The Academic Code of the University of Arkansas-Monticello may be found on page 65 of the 2003-2005 catalog. Please note that the instructor has wide latitude in taking corrective action in response to cheating; expect the harshest possible response in this class.
Dissecting supplies: Each student group is required to have scissors, scalpel, probe, and forceps. The bookstore stocks dissecting kits, which will be needed for heart anatomy and dissection of the mink. Plastic gloves are highly recommended.
