Course Overview:

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.



Honor Code:

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:
