Catalog Description
First semester of a two-semester sequence dealing with the
structure and function of the human body and mechanisms
for maintaining homeostasis within it. Includes the study of
cells, tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and
nervous systems. Identification of anatomical structures on
cadavers will be required in the laboratory. Course is
intended to be an alternative to Anatomy and Physiology
1551; credit toward graduation will be granted for Anatomy
and Physiology 1551 or Anatomy and Physiology 1571 but
not for both. Biology 1151 is strongly recommended.

Course Methods of Instruction

Lecture: Lectures will consist of two 75 minute sessions each week. PowerPoint presentations
will be accessible on the Blackboard site. Study guides will be posted on Blackboard 48 hours
prior to lecture exams when applicable. You need to bring your textbook to class.

Labs: Students will attend one 3-hour lab per week. You must attend the lab for which you are
registered. Skipping or missing a lab will set you behind so it is imperative that you come to
every lab. Lab will consist of microscope work, dissection videos and cadaver use. Labs,
unlike lectures, are socially based learning experiences. Students will be required to work in
teams. Study group formations are highly encouraged.

Upon successful completion of this course, the student should be able to do the following:
1. Explain the structure and function of the human
body, viewing it from the molecular level to the
level of an integrated organism
2. Interpret relationships between mechanisms of
homeostasis and stressors which cause the body to
depart from it
3. Identify anatomical structures on cadavers
4. Interpret data demonstrating physiological

Grading Criteria

Exams: If you miss an exam, it is your responsibility to contact me to schedule a make-up exam
(see late work/make-up policy). Each exam will cover only the material covered since the last
exam. No books, notes, bags, purses or other personal items can be at your desk during exams
unless an exemption is allowed.

Homework: Lab book review sheets are a required form of homework and are worth 5 points
each. Ten of these will be required for a total of 50 points credit.

Extra Credit: Extra credit opportunities will be offered in the form of occasional brief essays.
They are entirely optional.

Attendance: Attendance is vital to your success in this class. Attendance will be taken for
college records.

Class participation: Students are expected to participate during lecture and especially during
lab. Don’t hesitate to ask questions. I won’t know if you’re struggling with a concept or
assignment unless you tell me or ask a question.
Grading scale and percentage distribution:
Lecture and Lab Exams: 90% A = 90-100%
Homework 10% B = 80-89%
C = 70-79%

A&P Academic Success Strategies %

 Come to every class session.

 Be on time to each class.

 Minimize distractions while studying by turning off social media and phones to promote quality
study sessions.
o Research correlates multitasking with decreased efficiency and monotasking with increased

 Read through your notes promptly after class, within 24 hours or prior to the next class session
(whichever comes first), so you can fill in information and identify questions.

 Read the chapters paying attention to pictures, diagrams, charts, and graphs as well as complete
assignments before class, as you will get more out of the lecture and lab. Some will need to reread
chapter after lecture or lab.

 For each hour in A&P class, you should spend 3-4 hours outside of class studying.

 Study previous lecture notes each day with textbook open for reference.

 Study lab information and lecture notes in an integrated fashion, as studying one at the expense
of the other often will result in less than ideal performance on both lecture and lab exams.

 The volume of information cannot be effectively learned by cramming a few days before the exam,
start studying on a daily basis for exams beginning on the first day of each unit.

 Utilize study strategies that allow you to assess your knowledge, by quizzing yourself or each
other, either orally or in writing.

o [“People learn less by reviewing material and more from being tested or testing themselves on
it, as the latter involves greater cognitive processing and practice retrieving.” (Nilson, 2010)]

 Form study groups early on.

 Utilize Martini, F., Ober, W., Bartholomew, E., & Nath, J. (2013). Visual Essentials of Anatomy &
Physiology (1st ed.). San Francisco: Pearson.- available in Mastering A&P as e-textbook and in
library at reference desk.

 Utilize the following online Modified Mastering A&P tools: PAL 3.0 CD, Essentials of Interactive
Physiology CD, and other resources included with your books to further assess your knowledge.

 Answer questions within and at the end of textbook chapters (answers in back of textbook) and
throughout lab manual to further assess your knowledge.

 Ask questions.

 Come to office hours prepared with questions and to review your past exams, quizzes, and
assignments. Reviewing these assessments will help students improve study strategies, time
management, test taking strategies, and content misunderstandings which is important in a course that
builds upon itself and is foundational for future courses.
 Seek assistance from your instructor EARLY ON in the semester. If you are not doing well within
the first couple weeks that is an indicator that you need to seek assistance from your instructor and a
counselor. If you are repeating this course for whatever reason, you should also consult with your
instructor within the 1st week and a counselor to ensure you have modified your approach to promote

 Make flash cards.

 Draw pictures.

 Label pictures.

 Utilize the FREE tutoring services offered in The Learning Commons.

 Attend faculty supervised “Open Labs”.

o Held by full-time anatomy and physiology faculty in anatomy and physiology labs on main
campus to allow students extra lab time. Schedule will be posted outside anatomy and
physiology lab door; however, faculty setting up lab practical examinations may preempt the
scheduled times. Faculty staffing the open lab are available to help students with lab
materials; however, open lab times are NOT tutoring sessions. This time can also serve as a
quiet place to work on other A&P related assignment or to study for upcoming A&P exams
and quizzes.
