1Course SyllabusBIO 205 (Section E): Human Anatomy and Physiology ISpring 2021Instructor:Professor Karen WestEmail:[email protected]Office Hours:By appointment on campus or ZoomCourse Title:Human Anatomy and Physiology I (BIO 205, Section E)Required Text:Human Anatomy and Physiology. Marieb and Hoehn, 9th or 10th edition withMastering A & P access code.Class times & rooms:Mon & Fri, 8-9:40: Ivey 106and Wed, 8-9:40: Ivey 204COURSE DESCRIPTIONThis is the first of a two‐semester sequence in human anatomy and physiology. Students beginwith a review of cellular physiology and then explore the anatomy and physiology of fourimportant systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous. This course has both lectureand laboratory requirements, including dissections.COURSE OBJECTIVES•Students will begin with an introduction to the cellular structures and processes that arecrucial for understanding human physiology, e.g., membrane permeability and the abilityfor substances to be transported across them.•Students will be introduced to the language used by anatomists and gain understanding ofthe interaction between structure and function of the multiple tissue types and organsystems they comprise.•Students will gain a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology of fourimportant systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous. The remainingsystems of humans are covered in BIO 206
2More specifically:1.You willdefine, describe, illustrate, and provide examples of cellular structures andprocesses that are crucial for understanding human physiology, e.g., membranepermeability and the ability for substances to be transported across them.2.You willdemonstrate appropriate usage of the language of anatomy.3.You willbe able to classify and characterize the structure and function of the majortissue types, and the organ systems they comprise.4.You willbe able to solve, justify, and explain the interrelationship of four importanthuman organ systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous.5.You willbe able to summarize anatomical and physiological interactions, and developcauses/consequences of dysfunction of these interactions6.You willperform both hands-on and virtual dissections, and use this knowledge base todemonstrate proficiency of the human systems covered in this course.Exams, Quizzes and Additional Assignments:•Four exams will be given, including the final, which is mostly comprehensive.•Lecture or laboratory quizzes or reports will be given weekly or bi-weekly.•Homework will be weekly and will be assigned in Mastering A&P.•Critical thinking questions will be assigned throughout the semester to help you connectsubjects discussed in class with real life issues related to health. You will post a paragraph onthe discussion board on an assigned topic and respond to at least two other posts by twodifferent students.
