1 ZOOL 142 Human Anatomy and Physiology II Sec 61184 Professor: Michelle Smith Email: [email protected] Office: Office Hours: Class Day and Time: TR 9:45-11 am Room: Imiloa 123 Class Web Site: www.wcc.hawaii.edu/facstaff/miliefsky-m/ WINDWARD COMMUNITY COLLEGE MISSION STATEMENT Windward Community College is committed to excellence in the liberal arts and career development; we support and challenge individuals to develop skills, fulfill their potential, enrich their lives, and become contributing, culturally aware members of our community. CATALOG DESCRIPTION The second semester of a two-semester course in human anatomy and physiology which includes a study of human embryology, gross anatomy, microanatomy, physiology, pathology, and homeostatic relationships. This course is intended for students entering health care or medically related fields such as nursing, physical therapy and medical technology. (3 hours lecture) Pre-Requisite(s): Credit for ZOOL 141 or equivalent preparation or instructor’s consent. Recommended Preparation: Registration in ZOOL 142L. Credits: 3 class hours LEARNING RESOURCES Required Instructional Materials: Text: Marieb, E. & Hoehn, K. (2010) Human Anatomy & Physiology (8 th ed.). NY: Benjamin Cummings. STUDENT LEARNING OUTCOMES Describe how lipids, carbohydrates, proteins and nucleic acids are digested, assimilated, and catabolized to obtain energy and raw materials. Describe the anatomy and function of the circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems and discuss how these systems maintain homeostasis in the human body. Describe the link between the anatomy of human tissues and organs and their functions within the human body.

2 Discuss how negative feedback maintains homeostasis in the human body. Explain how disease and disorders disrupt the homeostasis of each of the above body systems and discuss how common medical treatments and drugs are used to restore homeostasis. Write a research paper on a disease affecting one of the body systems using primary and secondary scientific literature. TEACHING PROCEDURES Coordination of lecture and laboratory experiences are the primary modes of instruction. The lecture generally emphasizes major concepts and physiological processes. The laboratory generally emphasizes anatomy from the gross to the microscopic level and associated structure-function correlations. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for increasing their own comprehension and recall both by careful reading of assigned materials and by: taking advantage of opportunities for asking questions for clarification, answering questions posed in the text and supplementary sources (for which answer keys are provided participating in small study groups, review sessions, faculty office hours, and seeking out peer tutoring if necessary utilizing resources available in the academic learning computer center and learning resources center).
