Course Description

This is the first semester of a two-semester course which examines the structure and functions of the human body. Topics include fundamental principles of cell and tissue structure, gross anatomical and physiological organization, electrochemical communication systems and muscle physiology. This is a laboratory course that involves hands-on or simulated laboratory experiences. Prior learning in basic algebra, and chemistry or biology are recommended.


Essential Objectives


1. Describe cellular structure and communication as it relates to the use of organic and inorganic molecules, enzymes, membrane transport mechanisms, cell reproduction, and protein synthesis.
2. Demonstrate the use of anatomical terms for planes, directions, and locations as related to systems of the human body and describe the gross and microscopic anatomical organization of cells, tissues, organs, and organ systems.
3. Identify and describe the histological characteristics of connective, epithelial, nervous and muscle tissues and explain how the physiological roles of each ensure homeostasis.
4. Analyze the integumentary system for its role and structure in the human body.
5. Discuss the gross and microscopic anatomy of the skeletal system and identify the functions and role of joints and articulations.
6. Discuss the gross and microscopic anatomy of the muscular system and the physiology of muscular contraction.
7. Describe the pathway and mechanisms by which skeletal, muscular, and nervous systems interact.
8. Describe the structure and function of the peripheral and central nervous systems, including how electrical signals are generated and communicated throughout the human body.
9. Describe diseased states and how they impact different organ systems.
10. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.

  • Labs
  • Short answer and critical thinking questions
  • Activities
  • Library and research projects
  • Quizzes

Evaluation Criteria

Lab: Labs are an important part of Anatomy and Physiology. This semester we will be using PhysioEx which is located in Mastering A&P. These labs are fun and they are a great way to learn the material. We will also be doing other virtual labs as well.

Discussions/Blogs: Discussions are one of the best things about online classes. It is a chance for you to learn about a particular topic and to be the class expert in that area. It is also a great chance, too, to learn from each other. In order to receive credit you will need to check into the discussion folder several times each week. It is expected that you contribute at least one initial posting and respond to at least two other postings and answer any questions in your forum. You will be graded on the depth of your posting, the number of responses to other posts and the answers to questions posted in your forum.

New discussion folders will be opened at the start of each week. You will have until Friday to do the initial posting and Monday to respond to other postings. If you do not post or respond, you will receive a 0 for that week. You cannot go back and post once the week has ended. For full credit, you must make the inital posting by Friday so your classmates can havev time to respond.

Blogs are similar to discussions but they are more detailed. You do not have to respond to other blogs.

Short Lecture Quiz: Each week there will be a short multiple choice question quiz on the material. The quiz will be embedded into the lecture in Canvas.

Quiz: There will be 6 essay/short answer quizzes on the reading and lecture material. This is open book and not timed.

Presentation: The presentation will be on a topic related to A&P. The last week of classes we will go over the presentation.

Attendance Policy

Regular attendance and participation in classes are essential for success in and are completion requirements for courses at CCV. A student's failure to meet attendance requirements as specified in course descriptions will normally result in a non-satisfactory grade.

  • In general, missing more than 20% of a course due to absences, lateness or early departures may jeopardize a student's ability to earn a satisfactory final grade.
  • Attending an on-ground or synchronous course means a student appeared in the live classroom for at least a meaningful portion of a given class meeting. Attending an online course means a student posted a discussion forum response, completed a quiz or attempted some other academically required activity. Simply viewing a course item or module does not count as attendance.
  • Meeting the minimum attendance requirement for a course does not mean a student has satisfied the academic requirements for participation, which require students to go above and beyond simply attending a portion of the class. Faculty members will individually determine what constitutes participation in each course they teach and explain in their course descriptions how participation factors into a student's final grade.


Participation Expectations

Class Policies:

Academic Honesty:CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College. Copying from the internet or your book as well as any other source is cheating! Be careful and paraphrase the information. Note: I DO CHECK FOR PLAGERISM.

Attendance:You are expected to check in to the class every week and post to the discussion.

Readings:All readings listed in the lecture schedule are required.

Lectures:You are responsible to study all materials covered in the lecture, even if it is not in the assigned readings.

Discussions:To earn full participation points for the week, students should:

· Read the assigned material and demonstrate an understanding of those resources in your assignments and posts.

· Post an original response to the weekly prompt(s) before Friday at midnight (11:59 PM) and a minimum of two responses to peers before Monday at midnight (11:59 PM). You are also required to respond to any questions or thoughtful comments in your own forum. You are welcome to post early and/or more frequently, as your schedule allows, but you will not receive full credit if you do not meet these minimum requirements and/or deadlines.

· Posts should be substantive and demonstrate college-level writing. A substantive post is well-developed, a minimum 150 words, and references the reading or another appropriate source. A substantive post is NOT one or two sentences of general statements or unsupported opinion.



Missing & Late Work Policy

Late work policy:

All assignments, except for discussions, are due each week on Monday. I know sometimes life gets a little hectic and unpredictable so you will have an automatic additional 1 week extension to complete assignments with no penalties. No late work will be accepted after the 1 week extension. The discussions, though, are to be done each week.


Accessibility Services for Students with Disabilities:


CCV strives to mitigate barriers to course access for students with documented disabilities. To request accommodations, please
  1. Provide disability documentation to the Accessibility Coordinator at your academic center. https://ccv.edu/discover-resources/students-with-disabilities/
  2. Request an appointment to meet with accessibility coordinator to discuss your request and create an accommodation plan.
  3. Once created, students will share the accommodation plan with faculty. Please note, faculty cannot make disability accommodations outside of this process.


Academic Integrity


CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat.
