Course Description:

This is the second semester of a two-semester course that examines the structure and functions of the human body emphasizing and building upon the concepts learned in Human Anatomy & Physiology I. Topics will include special senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system and reproductive system. The course includes a lab. Prerequisite: Human Anatomy & Physiology I.

Essential Objectives:

1. Examine and explain the function of the special senses including taste, hearing, equilibrium and sight.
2. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the major endocrine glands and discuss their associated hormones, and the mechanisms involved in their regulation.
3. Discuss the composition of blood and the role of each of its components and be able to explain the fundamentals of immunity.
4. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy and the physiology of the regulation of the cardiovascular system.
5. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the respiratory system and be able to describe the physiology of the regulatory mechanisms of this system.
6. Describe the gross and microscopic anatomy of the digestive system and understand nutrient digestion and absorption of food components.
7. Understand and explain the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the urinary system including its role in fluid and electrolyte balance.
8. Identify the gross and microscopic anatomical components of the reproductive system, reproductive hormones and their effects on reproductive function as well as on general body structure and metabolism.
9. Demonstrate proficiency in understanding, interpreting, evaluating and applying quantitative data and information.
Lab Objectives:
1. Demonstrate the use of models and prepared labs to illustrate organizational and structural terminology and concepts related to human anatomy and physiology, including relevant application of the scientific method.
2. Complete labs in the following areas: function of the senses, endocrine system, blood, cardiovascular system (including the heart and blood vessels), lymphatic system and immune function, respiratory system, digestive system, renal physiology, reproductive system, and fluid and electrolyte balance.
3. Demonstrate an understanding of principles of the scientific method through the use of peer-reviewed journal articles, laboratory reports, laboratory notebooks, or other analyses.

Additional Instructor Pre-Assignments/Notes/Comments:

This course will have a significant online component, which means you'll have to complete some online homework assignments.  We'll be meeting on Wed from 8:30-4 to do mini-lectures and labs and I can answer all questions during this time.  Each week, you will be required to do some kind of assignment, which will likely be online, to help you learn the material.  There are no required times that you have to be online.  Please contact me at Allison.Dean@ccv.edu with any questions.  I'm looking forward to our semester together.

You may use a variety of books for this course.  If you have access to another text, please contact me to see about using it for the semester.

B. Criteria for Evaluation:

 

For each group of assignments we will go over what is required. If you do not understand something, it is your responsibility to come see me about your questions. 

 

1. Exams 40%  The format for the class exams will include a combination of any or all of the following - multiple choice, matching, identification and short answer.  These exams are generally online with an in class component.  

 

2. Lab Write-Ups and Assignments 30%-  Some form of laboratory work will be due or discussed after each lab. In some cases, this may be a formal write-up and in others it may be simply answering a few questions.

 

3. Homework  20% -You can expect a weekly homework assignment that will be completed online.  

 

4.  Participation/Attendance ­10%

Attendance is mandatory at all classes and labs.  If you miss class and want to make up work, you MUST contact me prior to the class meeting.  Please also be aware of the following class policy:  If you miss more than one class meeting, you will not be able to pass the course unless you and I have worked out an agreement based on very special circumstances. I understand that there are some cases that require exceptions to this rule. In each case, you are still responsible for work done during those sessions and for determining what those assignments are. I will use the number of absences and class participation for this portion of your grade.  However, make-up exams and quizzes will be considered only in very special cases.

 

  • Please be on time for class to show respect for yourself and the rest of the people in the class.

 Students are expected to be active participants in class activities and discussions.  This may be demonstrated by engaging in effective class discussions and demonstrating both verbal and listening skills. A student should be able to apply the knowledge learned in the class to these activities and needs to work well as a team player and as an effective individual learner.

 

Evaluation of writing done in this class will be assessed using the following criteria:

a. Student writes with purpose

b. Writing is organized and understandable

c. Opinions or ideas are supported by specific and appropriate detail

d. The mechanics of grammar, use and management are correct

 

5. Lateness: Work that is passed in after the due date will not be accepted, unless you have a valid excuse that I deem acceptable. And, you must talk to me when the work is due to determine if the reason is a valid one or not.  I reserve the right to determine this validity.  And, I do also take into account the number of times things are late when making these decisions.

Please note: In order to receive accommodations for disabilities in this course, students must make an appointment to see the Americans with Disabilities Coordinator in their site and bring documentation with them.

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.
