A systems approach to the study of the structure of the human body from the microscopic level of organization to the gross level. Structure related to function from study of histological slides, anatomical models and charts, and preserved mammalian dissection. This course is designed for students transferring into one of the following programs: nursing, physical therapy, physical education, sports medicine, dental hygiene and occupational therapy. Anatomy is NOT recommended for nonscience majors seeking to fulfill their lab science requirement.
Upon successful completion of Anatomy 1, the student will be able to:
Recognize and demonstrate detailed knowledge of the structure and function of the cellular and tissue makeup of the body’s organs including the ability to use a compound microscope and identify slides of human and animal tissues.
Recognize and demonstrate detailed knowledge of the organ makeup of the body’s organ systems including the ability to relate anatomy to the general function of the organ systems and demonstrate an appreciation and respect for the complexity of the human body.
Recognize the positions and discuss the relationship of the organs and parts of his/her own body and a dissected cat and use titles of standard reference of anatomy and basic terminology of anatomy.
Demonstrate the skill to dissect accurately and neatly and recognize relationships of tissues, organs, and systems in the cat the student has dissected.
Texts: Human Anatomy. Marieb, Mallatt, Wilhelm (5th Edition) Pearson/Benjamin Cummings Publishers
Course Packet (purchased at the bookstore)
Mammalian Anatomy: The Cat. Sebastiani and Fishbeck 2005 (2nd Edition)
A Photographic Atlas for the Anatomy & Physiology Laboratory. De Graaff, Morton and Crawley (6th Edition)
Scantrons: 6 form 882-E; 1 form 884-E; 1 packet of form 815-E
A dull probe, forceps, small scissors, dissecting gloves and an old towel are required. A lab coat/old shirt is optional.
These are questions that list specific terms you need to study, and also has possible essay questions for the exams. You need to answer these questions daily after class. I highly recommend that you write down the answers to the objectives so you can review your answers before quizzes and exams.
Evaluation and Grading Procedures:
You will be given 5 lecture examinations consisting of some or all of the following formats: multiple choice, matching, diagram labeling, drawing, fill in the blank, or essay questions. You are responsible for both material covered in the class and information in the book.
Laboratory Practical Exams:
You will have 5 lab exams that will require identification of structures and can include pictures, microscope slides and models in addition to preserved specimens.
You will be given unannounced lecture quizzes worth 5points, consisting of multiple choice or labeling questions. The quizzes will cover any material covered since the exam. Quizzes will be given at the beginning of class and cannot be taken at any later time
There will be 35 points for doing the dissection of the cat with your group. To receive these points you must be present for the entire lab period, participate in the dissection with your group and the dissection must be complete. NO MAKE UP QUIZZES, LECTURE OR LABORATORY EXAMS WILL BE ALLOWED. Grading:
Lecture Exams (5 at 100 pts each) 500
Practical Exams (5 at 75 pts each) 375
Quizzes (5 pts each: best 15 will count) 90
Dissection points 35
Cumulative Final Exam 200
Total Possible points 1200
> 90% = A
80 – 89% = B
70 – 79% = C
60 – 69% = D
below 60% = F
1. All cell phones are to be turned off and put away during class.
2. Class begins promptly at 7:00 am (Section # 70680) or 10:30 am (Section # 70682). Coming late to class is not acceptable as it is disruptive to the class. If you have a problem getting to class on time, it is your responsibility to discuss this with the instructor. )
Do not leave the classroom during lecture time unless it is an emergency. Again it disturbs the class.
Accommodation for Disability Related Needs:
Any student in this course who has a disability that may prevent him/her from fully demonstrating his/her abilities should contact me personally to discuss accommodations necessary to complete the course requirements. The disabled student center requires that a disabled student “self identify” and also provide appropriate documentation in order to establish the existence of the disability and the need for accommodation. Academic Honesty Policy:
I expect all students to maintain and promote academic integrity. Many of you, after all, are entering the beginning of a professional training program in the health sciences and professional integrity begins with personal integrity. The academic honesty policy of Long Beach City College will be strictly enforced. Any and all forms of cheating may result in a grade of F or an immediate drop from the class. Cheating includes (but is not limited to) the use of unauthorized materials or notes, copying from a willing or unwilling accomplice, stealing or selling information, changing work to claim a false grading error, falsifying data and plagiarism.
1. Keys to the lecture exams will be in my office. They can be reviewed during my office hours.
2. If a student is on the borderline between two grades after all the points are added up at the end of the semester, I take into consideration the following: improvement on quizzes and exams over the semester, attendance at lecture, being on time for class, and interest in the class. Being on the borderline is defined as within 1% of the cutoff point for a particular grade.
3. Attendance in class is important. The college policy on attendance is stated in the Schedule of Classes on p.136: “An instructor may lower the grade or drop a student from class for too many absences. A student missing more than two weeks in a row, or more than 20 percent of a course, shall be dropped by the instructor. If there are special circumstances, such as a long illness or a death in the immediate family, the student may be reinstated by decision of the instructor.”
4. Important Dates:
Late registration and last day to officially drop and receive a refund: Friday, August 31, 2007
Last day to drop without a "W": Friday, September 7th, 2007.
Last day to drop and receive a "W": Wednesday, November 21st, 2007.
Final Exam: Tuesday, December 17th, 2007.
INDEPENDENT STUDY ROOM:
1. Room D214 is available for quiet study. Check the door for the exact hours.
2. Bones, various models, microscope slides, CD-ROM’s and reference materials are available for your use in this room.
**IMPORTANT** You cannot learn Anatomy without putting in many hours of study time outside of class. The usual standard for outside study time is TWO TO THREE HOURS PER UNIT PER WEEK. This is time spent reading the book, studying your notes and studying models and specimens in the study rooms. This means that for this class you should plan to study a minimum of 8-12 hours outside of class per week. Some of this time will need to be spent in D214 (study room) and D212 (dissection room). If you are working for an “A” in the class, you will need to plan for additional study time. THIS IS A CHALLENGING COURSE – make sure you do have the time for it this semester or consider taking it another time.
**IMPORTANT**The following schedule is tentative and subject to change. Any changes will be announced in class. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out if there are any changes in the schedule.
