Unformatted text preview: Biology 2010 –Anatomy and Physiology Spring 2016 Class meeting: Miekeljohn Hall, Rm. 2032, MWF 8:00-­‐9:10 Instructor: Dr. Tess Freidenburg Office: North Science 403 Office hours: MW 1:30 – 4:00 Email: [email protected] (this is the best way to reach me!) Required materials: • • • Human Anatomy and Physiology, Marieb and Hoehn, (10th ed), Pearson MasteringA&P (MAP) can be bundled with the text (Course ID: MAPFREIDENBURG65995) iClicker (any model should work) Recommended materials: • • The Physiology Coloring Book; Kapit, Macey & Neisami, Harper & Row Publ., 1987 Essential Study Skills for Science Students, Daniel D. Chiras. Brooks/Cole Pub Co. Blackboard: Course information will be posted on Blackboard: Grading: Your grade will be determined by your performance in lecture and lab, with points distributed as follows: Exams: 2 midterms, each worth 17%, comprehensive final worth 25% Homework (MAP): 15% Class participation (iClickers): 1% Lab: 25% (you must pass the lab in order to pass the course!) How to calculated weighted grades: The scale for grading is as follows: A 94-­‐100 A-­‐ 90-­‐93.9 B+ 87-­‐89.9 B 84-­‐86.9 B-­‐ 80-­‐83.9 C+ 77-­‐79.9 C 74-­‐76.9 C-­‐ 70-­‐73.9 D+ 67-­‐69.9 D 60-­‐66.9 F >60 Course information: • • • Number of units: This is a 5 unit course Prerequisites: Recommended preparation: high school biology and chemistry, or BIOL 1001 (or 1005) and BIOL 1002 (or 1005); CHEM 1100 or 1601 (or 1605). Course description: An integrated approach to health through the essential concepts of human physiology and anatomy. Analysis of skeletal, muscular, sensorimotor, cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Not open to students with credit for BIOL 2011. Not for Biology B.S. degree credit. • • Course objectives: Students will o Develop a vocabulary of terminology to effectively communicate information related to the anatomy and physiology of the human body o Be able to identify and describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the major organs and organ systems o Understand how the major organ systems work individually and collectively to maintain homeostasis Student learning outcomes: Students completing this course will have an increased understanding of the respective roles of the major organ systems (e.g., skeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular) in maintaining homeostasis. In addition, students will be able to explain physiological functions of body systems, including the role of feedback loops to control physiological systems. Using the knowledge acquired in the course, students will hone their ability to synthesize information about physiological processes and to connect that information to concepts such as healthy lifestyle choices and the effects of homeostatic imbalances. Course requirements: • • • • Exams: There will be three multiple-­‐choice exams (2 midterms; one comprehensive final); dates are listed on the syllabus. Please note these dates, as there are no make-­‐up exams. If you have an emergency you must contact me before class begins and provide documentation within one week. Unexcused absence from an exam or failure to notify the instructor prior to the exam will result in a score of zero. All lecture exams will stress the lecture material; readings are designed to expand and deepen understanding of the material covered. It is unlikely that you will do well without keeping up with the assigned reading. For all exams, be sure to bring a #2 or softer pencil and a scantron that is free of tears and creases. Homework: Homework is assigned on MAP online. It is your responsibility to check and meet all deadlines for the assigned work. Late assignments may receive no points. Laboratory Sections: A unit of credit is given for the lab. Failure to attend lab will result in a failing grade-­‐-­‐a passing grade in lab is required to pass the course, since 5 units of credit cannot be awarded for only 4 units successfully completed. See below for more specific information about the laboratory sections. Office hours and study habits: Please come to office hours (mine and/or your TA’s) if you have questions or are having trouble with the material. To be successful, you need to read the text, take notes, and keep up with the homework (you should expect to spend 2-­‐3 hours studying for every hour of lecture!). It is your responsibility to be an active participant in your education by seeking help if you don’t understand the material. Academic conduct and class policies: • Classroom courtesy: It is inappropriate and discourteous to bring into class any device that emits an audible sound; please turn off or silence electronic devices during class. • Cheating: If it is determined that cheating or other dishonest behavior has occurred, a grade of "F" will be assigned to all individuals involved, and further actions (which may include expulsion from the University) may be initiated as detailed in the University catalog. • Disabilities: We will provide reasonable accommodations for physical or learning disabilities. Please register with student services and notify me as early as possible (first week of class). • Emergency information: Information on what to do in an emergency situation (e.g., earthquake, electrical outage, fire) may be found at: -­‐ management/ehs/emergency-­‐management/index.html Anticipated lecture schedule (any changes to the schedule will be posted on Blackboard) Week Date Lecture 1 Mon: 3/28 Intro, homeostasis, organ systems Wed: 3/30 Cells Fri: 4/1 Membrane transport, tissues 2 Mon: 4/4 Bones and skeletal tissues Wed: 4/6 Bones and skeletal tissues Fri: 4/8 Skeletal system 3 Mon: 4/11 Joints Wed: 4/13 Muscular system Fri: 4/15 Muscular system 4 Mon: 4/18 Midterm 1 Wed: 4/20 Muscles and muscle tissue Fri: 4/22 Muscles and muscle tissue 5 Mon: 4/25 Muscles and muscle tissue Wed: 4/27 Neural signaling Fri: 4/29 Neural signaling continued 6 Mon: 5/2 Neural signaling continued Wed: 5/4 Peripheral nervous system Fri: 5/6 Peripheral nervous system 7 Mon: 5/9 Autonomic nervous system Wed: 5/11 Finish nervous system Fri: 5/13 Cardiovascular: Heart 8 Mon: 5/16 Midterm 2 Wed: 5/18 Cardiovascular: Heart Fri: 5/20 Cardiovascular: Heart 9 Mon: 5/23 Cardiovascular: blood vessels Wed: 5/25 Cardiovascular: blood vessels Fri: 5/27 Respiration 10 Mon: 5/30 No class – Memorial Day Wed: 6/1 Respiration Fri: 6/3 Catch-­‐up and review The Final Exam will be Monday, June 6 8:00 – 9:50am Chapter 1 3 3, 4 6 6 7 8 10 10 1, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 10 9 9 9 11 11 11 13 13 14 14 18 9, 11, 13, 14 18 18 19 19 22 22 Laboratory Info Labs provide you with the opportunity to apply practical knowledge of what you have read in the text and heard in lecture. It is your responsibility to come to class prepared to actively engage with the materials provided and to ask your TA for help if you don’t understand in the information. Information about lab activities, including Student Learning Objectives (SLOs), reading assignments, and other activities will be posted on your lab Blackboard site. Labs meet in South Science 346. Lab exercises start on-­‐time; since lab activities require the entire lab period, late arrival may result in loss of credit for the entire lab meeting. Missing two labs without medical excuse will result in failing the course. Grading: Your TA will provide you with more detailed information about the grading breakdown for the laboratory sections.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
