Unformatted text preview: MONTGOMERY COUNTY COMMUNITY COLLEGE BIO 131 AW, RW– Human Anatomy and Physiology I (4 credits) Summer I Semester, 2007 Instructor: Meeting Place: Meeting Time: Telephone No.: Office Hours: Textbook: Lab Manual: Course Description: Dr. Jay M. Templin Rooms 206 and 244 Monday through Thursday: 8:00 AM to 11:45 AM (AW ) and Monday through Thursday: 5:30 PM – 9:15 PM (RW ) 610­326­1485 (Home) E Mail: 610­718­1877 (W ork) Cubicle D of Faculty Off ices After class on Monday through Thursday, by appointment Fundamentals of Anatomy and Physiology, 7E, by Martini Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory Manual, by Marieb BIO 131 HUMAN ANATOMY AND P HYSIOLOGY I A course employing a systems approach to the normal and pathological structure and function of the human body. Emphasis will be placed on the cell and the skeletal, muscular, nervous and integumentary systems. Appropriate, relevant laboratory experiences will be employed to supplement and/or reinforce the lecture material. Dissection of preserved animal material is required. Prerequisites: High school Biology and Chemistry taken within the past five years or BIO 121 and CHE 121. General Course 1. To provide students with a basic understanding of the structure and Objectives: function of the human body 2. To relate chemistry, cells, tissues, and organs in the organism in order to understand the structure and function of the human body. 3. To provide a background for further study in a variety of professional fields 4. To develop an appreciation for the structure and function of the human body Attendance Policy: As a student enrolled in BIO 131, you are expected to attend all lecture and lab class periods. I will take attendance for each class period. You are allowed two absences for the semester. For each additional absence, your final average in the course will be lowered by one point. Tardiness for any class day will count as one­half of one absence. Tardiness means that either you are late for class or that you leave early, failing to complete the assigned work for the day. W ith a valid reason, work missed due to absences or tardiness can be made up. Note: If I cancel a class period on the scheduled exam day, or if the college cancels the class period that day, we will take the exam at the beginning of the very next scheduled class period when we do meet. W :JT /BIO131 Syl S2 004 1 This is a tentative list of the lecture topics. This listing of topics closely follows the list of topics in your textbook. I will also announce the textbook chapters for these topics in class. For example, topics 1 and 2 are found in chapter one. Topic 3 is found in chapter two. Lecture Topics 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 12. 13. 14. 15. 16. 17. 18. 19. 20. 21. 22. Introduction to Anatomy and Physiology; Anatomical Position, Terminology Planes/Cavities/Homeostasis Chemistry of the Human Body Introduction to Cells Cell Structure Cell Function Cell Reproduction Histology, Membranes Introduction to the Skeletal System, Bone Structure Bone Structure and Markings; Axial and Appendicular Skeleton Articulations Introduction to the Skeletal Muscles Muscle Structure and Nomenclature Basic Principles of Muscle Function Mechanisms of Muscle Contraction Introduction to the Nervous System Reflexes, Reflex Arc Neural Transmission and Signaling Structures and Functions of the Brain Structures and Functions of the Spinal Cord Spinal Nerves, Cranial Nerves Autonomic Nervous System W :JT /BIO131 Syl S2 004 2 This is a tentative list of some of the laboratory topics. Lab exercises will off er you the opportunity to reinforce some of the facts and concepts learned in lecture. Begin now to study your lab book. Can you find where the laboratory topics are covered in your lab manual? Laboratory Topics 1. Human Skeleton Exercises 2. Histology 3. Human Skeletal Muscles 4. Brain Evaluation: First, refer to the letter grades and test average ranges on page four. Five lecture exams will be administered throughout the semester. I will announce the date for each lecture exam well in advance. There will be one lecture exam about every week. If any exam (lecture or lab) is missed for a valid reason, a makeup day will be scheduled at the end of the semester. You must state this reason to me in writing. Each lecture exam will include multiple choice questions and short­answer questions. Objectives will be provided for each of the five units. Practice sheets will be provided in class. Back tests will be placed on reserve. All of these aids serve as examples to practice for the lecture exams. Each lecture exam will be based on lecture notes and all relevant textbook information. Ninety percent of the points for each lecture exam will be based on lecture notes, with the textbook serving as a reference. Ten percent of the points for each lecture exam will be based on information not covered in lecture. This percentage will be based on information from the reading alone. Read all of the assigned textbook chapters to prepare for the lecture exams and the departmental final exam. Studying the laboratory manual, and relating your lab experiences to lecture, can also help you in this preparation. Each lecture exam will count fourteen percent toward the final grade for the course. The topics for the five lecture exams are as follows: Exam I: Exam II: Exam III: Exam IV: Exam V: Introduction/Chemistry Cells/Tissues/Membranes Skeleton/Skeletal Muscles Nervous System Nervous System/ANS Two lab practicals (exams) will be administered during the semester. I will announce the scheduled time for each lab practical well in advance. One lab practical will be at about the middle of the semester. The other lab practical will be near the end of the semester. W :JT /BIO131 Syl S2 004 3 The lab practical questions will require short answers and involve questions at the laboratory stations. The questions will represent information studied in the lab. I will provide information checklists and examples of the lab practical questions in class. Each lab practical will count ten percent toward the final grade for the course. The topics for the two lab practicals are as follows: Lab Practical I: Lab Practical II: Histology/Skeleton Skeletal Muscles/Brain A final score for the course will be computed from your lecture test average, quiz average, and lab test average. The three components of this final score for the course will be weighted as follows: Lecture test average Quiz average Lab test average = = = 70% 10% 20% The final score for the course will be translated into a final letter grade for the course. The following ranges will be used for the final letter grade in the course. Evaluation: Final letter grade for the course: A B C D F = = = = = Ranges for the final score: 90 to 100 80 to 89 70 to 79 60 to 69 Below 60 Note: Attendance also affects your final grade in the course. See the note on this from page 1. W :JT /BIO131 Syl S2 004 4 Other Policies: Withdrawal from the Course: Students can withdraw from a course with a grade of “W ” by completing a formal withdrawal application. A grade of “W ” is done at the discretion of the instructor. Failure to attend class is not an official withdrawal and may lead to a grade of “F” being assigned. I will withdraw a student up through the last day of classes. Academic Discipline (Cheating/Plagiarism) Refer to all stated policies in the current course catalog, student handbook and student handbook calendar. Code of Conduct: Refer to all stated policies in the current course catalog, student handbook and student handbook calendar. Students with Disability Policy: Students with disabilities may be eligible for accommodations in this course. At W est Campus, contact the Disabilities Services Coordinator, 610­718­1853. Class Cancellation Policy: Inclement weather – 395 (day) – 2395 (evening) Call 610­718­1800 and listen to message. Check our website: W :JT /BIO131 Syl S2 004 5 ...
