Course description: 
        
This is an intensive lecture and lab course designed to study the fundamental principles of the human body structure at the cellular, tissue, organ and systems level of organization.  The course includes cat and organ dissection, study of the human skeleton, structural and functional relationships, and an appreciation of related human diseases and aging.  Prerequisites include Biol 120 or Biol 100 with a grade of “C” or better, or a current California LVN license.  All students in this course must participate in the dissection of cats, sheep hearts, and other animal tissue.  A large portion of this course deals with labs that involve animal dissection.  Similarly, lab practical exams involve the use of animal tissues and organs.  Thus, there is no practical way that students can "avoid" animal dissections in this class.  If you have any "issues" with animal dissections you need to see the instructor during the first week of class.
 

Textbooks and other materials:

 

Required

 

1.    Principles of Human Anatomy. Tortora, G. J., and M.T. Nielson.  2009.  11th edition, John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ISBN-13 978-0-471-78931-4

Optional: 

1. Barron's Anatomy Flash Cards, 2nd Edition
2Human Anatomy (Study Guide), L. Zhao, Imperial Valley College
3. Human Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory Manual (Cat Version) Marieb and Mitchell

4. Cat Dissection: A Laboratory Guide. C. Allen., and V. Harper 2005. 2nd Edition. John Wiley & Sons, Inc. ISBN 978047170141

Attendance Policy:
 
       Attendance is required.  You are responsible for all material presented during lecture and lab sessions.   If for some reason you can't attend a lecture, quiz or an exam, it is your responsibility to approach me as soon as possible to determine if you have missed something important, and whether you can make it up. In order to make up missed opportunities you must provide a signed medical or legal excuse to document your absence. Students must realize that labs, and particularly lab exams CANNOT be made up (regardless of the activity that resulted in the absence, or whether its an excused absence). Some labs require numerous hours to prepare and/or require cooperative student participation.  Again, Lab practical exams may not be made up.  Thus, attendance is mandatory at all lab exams. .  All research indicates that there is a strong positive correlation between class attendance and good grades (i.e., those who attend class get better grades than those who skip class). 

       Class attendance and tardy policy follows regulations set forth in the IVC catalog.  Additionally, the IVC catalog states "an Instructor may drop any student judged to be a disturbing element in the class."   I consider coming into class tardy - a disturbing element.  Any student tardy 4 times will be considered a disturbing element in class and may be dropped from the course.  This includes being tardy following any announced breaks during class or lab. 

      Please note that personal issues, such as family obligations, family situations, border slowdowns, babysitters, railroad crossings, job interviews, car problems, taking family members to appointments, and work schedules are not acceptable excuses for an absence or a tardy.  You are allowed one tardy. For all subsequent tardies you will be asked to provide a 4 page essay on the topic we are covering on that day within 48 hours. Failure to provide a 4 page (double spaced, 12 font) will result in the loss of 30 points. Additionally,  leaving class or lab before it has been officially dismissed will be regarded as as an unexcused tardy and will result in an essay as described above. 

    It is the responsibility of the student to fill out the necessary paperwork if he/she no longer attends the class.  In order for a student to "officially" drop the course he/she must fill out the proper paperwork.  If this is not done a semester grade of “F” will be assigned. 


Honor Policy:

       Imperial Valley College students must conduct themselves in accordance with the highest standards of academic honesty and integrity.  Academic dishonesty by a student will not be tolerated.  Plagiarism or violations of copyright policies are a form of academic dishonesty and are treated as an ethics violation.
 

Grading:   

You will lose 25 points each time your cell phone rings, vibrates, buzzes, flashes or blinks during lecture or during lab (even if it is in your backpack, pocket,or purse!).  Similarly, you will incur the same penalty if I observe you "checking" your phone by looking at it, or using it as a calculator or camera during a lecture or lab.   Furthermore, you will lose points if I note that you are leaving lecture or lab to answer a phone call or text message.  Rest assured, I will provide you plenty of breaks that enable you to address all of your cell phone needs.  You can provide your children's day care and/or family health care providers the number of the IVC front office, and the front office can contact you in class in the event of an emergency.

       Your course grade will be based on 5 lecture exams, 5 lab practical exams, lab and lecture quizzes, homework assignments, and discretionary course participation points .  Unannounced quizzes will be given during lecture and lab.  Review sessions prior to exams will be arranged if there is an interest.  

  • Approximately 10 lab assignments and/or announced or unannounced quizzes (10-20 points each approximately)

  • Five lab practical exams (80 points each approximately). The final is partially comprehensive.

  • Five lecture exams to cover lectures, textbook, CD-roms, videos, and other lecture materials (80 points each approximately). The final exam has a comprehensive component and will be worth approximately 160 points.

  • Total = 1,000 points (approximate)

    Grades will be assigned according to the following scale:

    >90%  = A          
    80 - 89.9%  = B 
    70 - 79.9%  = C
    60 - 69.9%  = D
    <59.9%  = F 

I do not accept late homework without a signed legal or medical excuse.  Unless otherwise indicated all homework is due at the beginning of class.

Special Needs and Accommodations

Any student with a documented disability who may need educational accommodations should notify the instructor or the Disabled Student Program and Services (DSP&S) office as soon as possible (DSP&S, Room 2177, Health Sciences Building (760 355-6312).

If you have emergency medical information to share with me, or if you need special arrangements in case the building must be evacuated, please let me know during the first week of class.
