Course Description Study of structure and function of the human body. Dual Enrollment This class is offered as dual enrollment through Chandler-Gilbert Community College. BIO201 (Fall) and BIO202 (Spring) 8 college credits Second year college level class. Course Competencies The Maricopa Community College District provides course competencies for all classes taught. These minimal competencies insure a complete educational experience comparable to any four-year university See syllabus for specific competencies Attendance You have to be here to learn! Mastering a science is difficult when lecture and labs are not experienced first hand. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to gather handouts missed or schedule any makeup work. Missed Exam Do NOT miss an exam day! If absent, a written explanation from a parent is required to verify the reason for your absence. A phone number is also needed so I can call home to validate your explanation. Be prepared all the time! Grading Policy A 100 – 90 % B 89 – 80 % C 79 – 70 % D 69 – 60 % F ≤59 % Lecture Exams ………. 40 % Final Exam……………..10 % Quizzes ………………...10 % Assignments ………….. 20 % Lab Practicals ………… 20 % Academic Dishonesty No one likes a cheater Cell Phones If you like your cell phone, keep it out of sight! The use of cell phones will result in losing it for the day. Cell phones are a major distraction and their use disrespectful if done at inappropriate times. Wait until the bell. Cell phones out during a quiz or exam will result in a ZERO. I will assume cheating! Human and Animal Materials This course focuses on anatomy and physiology of the human body…. the use of human and animal materials facilitates the learning experience. Cadavers We will have an opportunity to observe cadaver dissection demonstrations. This will occur at the end of the year when we will be able to apply all of the information we’ve learned so far. The field trip is not required but recommended as it is a great learning experience. Learning Center There are free tutors available at the Chandler-Gilbert Community College. Great opportunity but a long distance away. My Expectations … You will be on time. You will be prepared for the day. You will be highly motivated to learn. You will actively engage in your learning. When you participate, everyone benefits. You will respect me and one another. You will use lab time wisely; no playing. Your Expectations of Me … I will do the best I can to prepare a meaningful lesson each day. I will be clear in my teaching. I will be fair and free of any bias. I will be available outside of class when you need additional help. I will make you love science as much as I do! You will be my “Mini-Me” when done.
