COURSE INFORMATION Biology 224 Anatomy & Physiology Fall, 2010 INSTRUCTOR: Renee Magrini OFFICE: Bristlecone 334 OFFICE PHONE: 445-4286 (I will check voice mail once daily, except weekends and holidays, and return calls within 24-48 hrs). e-MAIL: magrini@wnc.edu (I will check e-mail once daily and reply within 24-48 hrs). OFFICE HOURS: 4:00-5:00 p.m. M & W; 12:00-2:30 p.m. Tue & Thur; 4:00-5:30 p.m. Tue & Thur; or by appointment. ATTENDANCE: It is your responsibility to attend all lecture and laboratory sessions. Attendance will be recorded in both lecture and lab. Attendance in lecture is particularly important because exam questions will come from lecture material. Attendance in the laboratory is mandatory because lab assignments and exams are generally of a practical nature and cannot be made up. Attendance will be recorded at the beginning of class. If you are late and miss the taking of attendance, be sure to see me AFTER CLASS, so I can mark you present. If you fail to do so, you will be marked absent irreversibly. If a student is habitually late for class (or leaves during class), i.e. more than 5 times, the student will lose 1% from the attendance total with each additional time he/she is late. Attendance in lecture is worth 50 points toward your lecture average, and attendance in lab is worth 25 points toward your lab average. METHOD OF INSTRUCTION: Primarily lecture, however, videos may be shown occasionally. I will also lecture during the first part of the lab, after which I will supervise students during hands-on lab activities. EXAMS AND GRADING: Lecture and laboratory must be taken concurrently. The lecture portion of the course will account for 3/4 of your total grade, and the laboratory 1/4. Lecture Exams: Four lecture exams, at 100 points each, will be given during the course of the semester. Each will be non-comprehensive, covering the material for that section only. Makeup exams will only be given to students with a valid doctor's excuse stating that either the student or his/her child was ill. YOU CANNOT MAKE UP MORE THAN ONE EXAM!! If you must miss an exam for a valid reason other than illness, i.e. an important business trip or a mandatory
