COURSE SYLLABUS Trinity Western University Biology 241, (3, 3) Human Anatomy and Physiology 3-week Session 2015 Instructor: Dr. Bill Luke Office Hours: Gymnasium #2 – TBA Lectures: 8:30 – 11:30 Labs: A. 12:30- 2:45 B. 3:00- 5:15 (if needed) Email: [email protected] Phone: 3703 Prerequisites: none. Course Description: A study of human anatomy and physiology. Emphasis will be on a systematic study of the structure, function, adaptations, integrative and regulatory mechanisms of homeostasis. Particular attention will be placed on cellular, tissue, integumentary, muscular, skeletal, cardiovascular, respiratory and metabolic systems. Objectives: 1. To provide an insight into the mechanisms underlying physiological phenomena characteristic of the major systems of the human body. 2. To gain a better understanding of the relationship between structure and function of the human systems. 3. To develop a greater appreciation of the complexity and potential of the human body. 4. To obtain a sound understanding of those aspects of anatomy and physiology relating to the following: a) adaptations to eustress and distress b) maintenance of homeostasis c) changes in structure and function under various conditions of health, physical exercise, sports training and disease .. 5. To demonstrate (in the laboratory) many of the concepts covered in lectures, give students an opportunity to gain some measure of familiarity with relevant instrumentation and techniques and develop skills of observation in gross and micro anatomy. 6. To develop a Christian perspective of anatomy and physiology with respect to the design, function and interaction of physiology, emotions and faith. Required Textbook Tortora, G.J.H. and B. Derrickson. Principles of Anatomy and Physiology. 14th ed., Wiley 2014. Laboratory Manual: Tortora, G.J.H and Allen, C. and V. Harper. Laboratory Manual for Anatomy and Physiology. 5 th ed., Wiley and Sons, Inc., 2014. Laboratory & Lecture Expectations To ensure success it is essential that each student attend (and be fully prepared for) all lecture and lab sessions. Because of the speed at which a condensed course progresses, ensure readings are completed ahead of time. An instructor may bar a student from writing the final exam in any course where the student has been absent without permission or legitimate cause for more than ¼ of the classes. It is fully expected that students will be in full attendance at all lectures and labs. There will be a 5% reduction in the total lab grade for each laboratory absence and a 2.5% reduction for late arrivals in both lecture and laboratory classes. Late assignments will be penalized 50% per day. More than 1 absence from laboratory classes will result in course failure. In order to receive credit for Biology 241 both lecture and laboratory sections must be passed. Labs 1. Lab coats are mandatory for each laboratory session. 2. Lab reports are due in their entirety at the beginning of the next lab period. Grading Lectures 1. Midterm Exam 2. Final examination 35% 35% 70% Labs 1. Lab Assignments 2.

An instructor may bar a student from writing the final examination in any course where the student has been absent without permission or legitimate cause for more than one-quarter of the lecture classes or laboratory sessions. 2. Exams must be written at the assigned times – any absences for illness must be supported by a medical note. Technology Use Policy in Laboratory and Classroom I believe strongly that it is the instructor’s responsibility to establish and maintain a positive class room environment most conducive to learning for the majority of the students; therefore the following policy on technology will be firmly applied. All cell phones and other electrical devices will be shut off, placed out of sight (not on lap or on desk top) and will not be utilized during the entire class period – Mini-breaks given during class are not times to check emails, text messages etc. – they are intended to give a quick mental refresher. There will be a 10-15 minute break mid way through each morning lecture class – this is the time to check on emails, text messages etc. Computers used in class must be on task and used for note taking purposes only – the instructor reserves the right to assign seating for any one using computers in class. The same policy will apply to all labs – cell phones and all electrical devices will be shut off and put away for the entire lab session. Photographs are not permitted during laboratory sessions Cell phones and all other technological device can not be used for time keeping purposes during exams – please plan ahead for exam times. To ensure a quality teaching and learning environment students must attend the laboratory session and write all exams during their normal laboratory time. Exams are to be written during the assigned times.
