Course Overview and Requirements

Prerequisites:    Biology, Chemistry and Earth Science Credit

Required Text: Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology

Course Description: This is a semester long class to enable students to develop a comprehensive understanding of human anatomical design and function. A variety of class pedagogy will be used such as lecture, video, simulations, labs and dissection. 

Requirements and Evaluation: Students will be evaluated by other informal and formal assessments. We will also have projects students will complete on various body systems. 

Due Dates and Late Work Policy: Students will be submitting work daily but all work during the time we are on plan B must be submitted by 3pm on Friday. If the work is submitted after that time it will be considered later resulting in 50% off. 

Synchronous and Asynchronous Learning: We will be using both forms of learning. During the week activities and videos primarily will be asynchronous but on Fridays will be meeting synchronously for office hours

Grading: A = 90-100

B = 80-89

C = 70-79

D = 60-69

F = 0-59

Topics: We will be covering as many body systems as we can this semester. We will begin with general terminology and work our way through the systems in order of complexity.
