Course Title and Credits:  Human Anatomy and Physiology (BIOL 2233); 3 Credit Hours

 Course Description:  A basic course in anatomy and physiology with emphasis on structure and function of cells, tissues, organs, and systems in the human body.

 Co-requisties:      ENGL 1013 Composition I (ACTS #: ENGL 1013)

                                BIOL 1063 Introduction to Biological Science strongly recommended (ACTS #: 1004)

Textbook: . Tortora, G. J. and Derrickson, B.  Principles of Anatomy and Physiology.  John Wiley & Sons, Inc., New York.  13th ed.  ISBN 13:  978-0470-56510-0

 Attendance, Testing, and Cheating:  Attendance in this course is mandatory and will be recorded regularly.  Exam attendance is required and make-up exams will be given only under extreme circumstances.  Make-up exams will be allowed only in cases of illness with a doctor’s excuse, excused university functions, or family emergencies with a written excuse from a family member.  If you are forced to miss an exam you must notify me within 24 hours of the exam.  Failure to do so will result in a zero on that exam.  If you know ahead of time that you will be absent please let me know and prior arrangements for testing can be made. 

               Cheating in any form will not be tolerated and will automatically result in failure of the course.  Cellular phones are included in the cheating policy and any appearance of a cellular phone (or other communication devise) during a test will be considered an attempt to cheat by the student.

                ******Likewise electronic devices such as cellular phones etc. will not be allowed in lecture unless prior approval is given by the instructor.  Failure to follow this rule will result in the student being asked to leave class.

Objectives:  To convey knowledge of basic human anatomy and physiology, with special emphasis on cells, tissues, and organ systems.

Course Grade:        Exam 1:                                                            100 pts.

                    Exam 2:                                                            100 pts.

                    Final Exam:      ________________           200 pts.

                    Total for Course:                                             500 pts.

Your percentage grade will be based on the number of points you earn divided by the number of possible points in the course.


 *******NO EXTRA CREDIT will be given under any circumstances!!!

Each student will choose a code number/code name prior to the first test and this will be used to post grades.  Grades will be posted either by hard copy or on the Internet.  If you do not wish to have your grade posted please let the instructor know prior to the first test.  Grades will not be provided over the phone or by E-mail.
