Course Objectives: Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:

1.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the cardiovascular system.

2.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the lymphatic system.

3.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the immune system.

4.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the respiratory system.

5.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the digestive system.

6.

Describe and apply the basic principles of nutrition and metabolism as they relate to human anatomy and physiology.

7.

Identify, describe and explain structures and functions of the urinary system.

8. Describe and apply the basic principles of fluid and acid-base balance as they relate to human anatomy and physiology.
9. Identify, describe, and explain structures and functions of the endocrine system.

10.

Identify, describe, and explain the structures and functions of the reproductive system.

11.

Lecture: Visual Anatomy and Physiology, Martini et Al.

Lab: No additional book is required, please bring and use the textbook in lab!


Attendance:

Attendance is required and will be recorded. The instructor will either take roll or pass around an attendance sheet. Failure to be present when roll is taken or when the attendance sheet is pass around will result in a zero. Furthermore, a student cannot sign in for another student. Signing in for another student is considered a violation of academic integrity. Lastly, Georgia Highlands College requires that all faculty members report their students' progress throughout the course of the semester as part of the institution-wide Early Warning Program (EWP).  The objective of the program is to support academic success by reviewing early indicators of satisfactory student progress.  In accordance with EWP, faculty members provide the Registrar's Office with academic reports of each student enrolled in their course(s) at checkpoints staggered throughout the semester.  The following success factors are reported at their corresponding checkpoint:

Week 2: Notification of Non-attendance
Week 5: Evidence of Course Pursuit
Week 8: Mid-term Grades

Prerequisites:

Completion of Biology 2121 with a grade of "C" or higher.

Grading:

The standard grading system will be used:

A= 100-90, B= 89-80, C= 79-70, D= 69-60, F= 59 and below

Notice: If a student's final average is within one half a point (ex: 89.5) of the next letter grade the instructor will grant rounding up to the next letter grade if the student has attended and participated in at least 90% of the scheduled lectures.

The final grade for the course is based on the average of the following 9 grades:

Five announced lecture exams

Notice: Each exam is worth a maximum of 100 points.

Exam I _____

Exam II _____

Exam III _____

Exam IV _____

Exam V _____

An average of all laboratory work (which is counted twice)

Notice: The laboratory grade is calculated by averaging two grades:  two lab practical examinations (each worth a maximum of 100 points) 

Lab average calculation:

Lab Practical Exam I grade _____ + Lab Practical Exam II grade _____ /200

Lab Average _____

Lab Average _____

A final comprehensive exam (which is counted twice) Final Exam _____

Final Exam _____

  Average for the course:

Exam I + Exam II + Exam III + Exam IV + Exam V + Highest Lecture + Lab Average + Lab Average + Final Exam + Final Exam divided by 900 =

Course Average _____
