Human Anatomy and Physiology I, Lectures Tuesday and Thursday
Welcome: Welcome to Human Anatomy and Physiology I, BIO 2310. This course combines two sections for lecture, then half of the class meets for lab on Tuesday and the other half meets for lab on Thursday. Labs are in SI 2087. The laboratories are traditional laboratory sessions which allow the seeing, touching and feeling of body structures.

EXAMS AND GRADES:
- 1. LECTURE EXAMS: There will be 4 lecture exams for a total of 450 points. All exams are cumulative. Exams 1,2,3 are each worth 100 points- with about 10-15% of exams 2 & 3 covering “old” material. The final is worth 150 points-with 100 points new material and 50 points cumulative. Lecture exams consist of objective, short answer, and essay questions.
- 2. LAB EXAMS: There will be 3 lab exams each worth 50 points each plus 2 Review Sheets Assignment worth 20 points (170 total). Lab exams will consist of short answer and identification questions. The lab, therefore, will be worth about 1/4 of your course grade. The review sheet assignment consists of completing 1. the Review Sheet in your Marieb Laboratory Manual “Exercise 13 Review Sheet: Gross Anatomy of the Muscular System” PLUS 2. the review sheet on Skeletal Muscle Physiology found here. (Skeletal Muscle Review Sheet) You may do these review sheets at home. The two review exercises are due on your very next lab period when we dissect the brain. You may hand these in to me during lab, or scan/photograph them and submit them electronically. You will lose 5 points per day that they are submitted late. 10 points are possible for complete and accurate answers of each review exercise for a total of 20 points.
- 3. POINT TOTALS: The total number of points possible for the course is 620. Letter grades will be assigned on a percentage basis, as follows:
- A= 558-620
- B = 496-557
- C = 434-495
- D = 372-433
- F = Fewer than 372 points
- 4. There will not be any exam make-ups allowed excepting for extenuating circumstances. If this occurs, I must be notified in person or by phone message or email BEFORE the exam begins. Make-up exams will be essay tests.
- 5. Lab exam make-ups MUST be taken within one week of scheduled exam date.
- 6. The room door closes 15 minutes after the start of the class period on exam day. No exam may be started after this time.
