Human Anatomy and Physiology
Dr. Steven Kelly
Honors Anatomy and Physiology is a comprehensive study of interrelationships of body organ systems.
The student will enjoy gaining knowledge in Human body structure, but will also be fascinated with how body systems function through the understanding of Human Physiology.
I expect students to be honest and that they conduct themselves with integrity and self-confidence in the classroom. Cheating, plagiarism, forgery, and any other displays of dishonesty will not be tolerated. I will uphold this policy for all classroom assignments and interactions. Any violation of this policy will be an automatic forfeit of that assignment’s grade.
Materials & Supplies Needed:
- 1 or 2 inch 3-ring binder
- Dividers (10-12)
- 1 subject spiral notebook
- Colored pencils
- Scientific Calculator
- Pencils, pens, highlighters --- **will specifically need a yellow & a colored highlighter
- Glue sticks
I grade on a POINTS system. Each assignment will be graded out of a set amount of points and that amount will vary for each assignment. A student’s grade on any assignment is the points earned divided by the total possible points, multiplied by 100%. The same is true for each six weeks grade. The final exam will be worth 25% of their final grade.
Students are required to maintain a neat and well organized notebook of all class materials, notes, and handouts. To help students organize their notebooks, I have divided the course curriculum into 11 major units and these units will serve as the divider tab labels in their notebook:
Course Topics/ Units
Unit 1 – Introduction to Human Anatomy and Physiology
Unit 2 – Cellular and Histological study
Unit 3 – Integumentary System
Unit 4 –Muscular System
Unit 5 – Skeletal System-
Unit 6-Cardiovascular System (Lymphatic System)
Unit 7-Nervous System
Unit 8- Respiratory System
Unit 9-Digestive System
Unit 10- Urinary System
Unit 11-Reproductive System
**Tutoring is available upon request as needed. I am generally at school by 7:00 am and will tutor until the bell rings for first period.
The syllabus page shows a table-oriented view of the course schedule, and the basics of course grading. You can add any other comments, notes, or thoughts you have about the course structure, course policies or anything else.
