Materials


Bryan

Textbook: Anatomy Physiology-The Unity of Form and Function, 6th Edition, 2012, Saladin, McGraw-Hill. 

Lab Manual: Custom Lab Book A&P (BIOL 2401& 2402), 2012 Edition, Martin. McGraw-Hill.

 

Course Requirements


GENERAL: You are expected to read your book and keep up with the material day-by-day.  A&P2 is a very demanding and time consuming course so make sure you have a calendar to organize you day and help you to ensure you do not miss any assignments.

eCAMPUS

Access to the Internet is REQUIRED. Internet access at home would certainly be a plus, however, all students at Blinn College and/or Texas A&M have computing resources available to them. The Open Computer Labs at Blinn College are located in Rooms H-225 and L-258, and the Library. If you are not familiar with these, see me or inquire at the Learning Center in the Library Building, L-258, for more details, ASAP. eCampus is an online course tool and is in essence a virtual classroom through which I will be posting course related materials, grades and other information. You will also be able to contact me with questions and or problems you might be having and have the ability to contact your classmates. It will be your responsibility to check this site regularly: https://ecampus.blinn.edu/default.asp

All lecture notes can be found on ecampus under the “Lessons” tab, in the “Lecture” folder and are organized by chapter.  Before coming into class, you are expected to print the notes so you will be able to concentrate on my lecture and take notes in addition to the bullets that are already on each slide.

I will be making assignments from CONNECT, the learning platform that comes with the Saladin 6th edition A&P book.  If you do not have this platform you will need to go to McGraw-Hill Publishing to purchase access for one semester for $25.00 to both Connect and Learn Smart by following the link below.   Follow the prompted links to purchase connect for $25.

LECTURE EXAMS:  There will be four exams worth 100 points each (closed book, no notes, all electronic equipment including cell phones must be TURNED OFF).  Before taking the exam, all books, notes and electronic equipment including cell phones will be stowed in the student’s backpack and placed at the front of the classroom. Each exam may be a combination of short answer, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, identification, and short essay.  The student will need to purchase and bring with them to the exam, one ADVANTAGE scantron.

 

Makeup exams will be given at the discretion of the instructor.  Makeup tests are of a different format (short essay) and contain different questions than the tests given at the scheduled times.

  

 

FINAL EXAM: A comprehensive, multiple-choice lecture final (worth 200 points) will be given at the end of the semester. The questions on the final will be: 80% from the lecture material covered on lecture exams1-4, 20% from the laboratory material.

 

LAB EXAMS:  Four 50-point lab exams are scheduled throughout the semester.  The exams will cover material previously covered in lab. 

 

ONLINE MATERIAL:

 

BEFORE LECTURE:

At the beginning of a topic or chapter, students will have completed a lab on the anatomical structures to be studied and will have access to online CONNECT self- quizzes, interactive art self-quizzes on the basic anatomical structures that you should know before coming into lecture.  In-class quizzes on basic anatomy will be given in lab on the day that the new chapter is started in lecture.  I expect that the student will know the general anatomical features before coming into lecture so I can talk about the physiological and functional aspect of these structures.  The quiz material comes from the lab assessment assigned and completed the lab before the new lecture topic is started, the online self-quizzes and the textbook.  The quiz grades will be averaged and will be worth 100 points towards the total course points.

 

CONNECT HOMEWORK

I will assign homework to be taken online that you can access through this classroom on McGraw-Hill CONNECT.

 

In lecture class quizzes:

I will assign animations and online quizzes from the A&P revealed program that you can access through this classroom on McGraw-Hill CONNECT.  When you come into the next lecture after this assignment is made, you will take a follow up quiz in class over the same topics.

    

Learn Smart Module:  During and by the completion of each chapter students will be given an assignment to complete the Learn Smart module on that chapter.  If the student completes the module, the grade is 100% for that assignment, if you only complete 75% of the module, the grade is 75% for that assignment.  Each module can be accessed on the Connect web site and should be worked on every day.  Working on the Learn Smart every day is a great way to study and understand the material and master the information for the lecture exams.  Your Learn Smart Module grades will be averaged and will count for 100 points towards your total points for the class.

 

 

LAB ACTIVITIES: Before coming into lab, the student should refer to the Laboratory Schedule handout and read the laboratory modules to be performed in lab that day.  This will help the student to more efficiently budget their time.  Each day in lab all students will be completing lab activities that should be studied before coming into the next lab period.  On occasion I may collected lab assessments.  The student will turn in the completed lab activityTurned in lab assessments must be completely filled in and answers must be in complete sentences or the assignment will be graded as a zero.   I will not take late labs unless you have an excused absence as defined by Blinn College Policy.

Blinn College Policies


Blinn College policies on civility, class attendance; scholastic integrity; students with disabilities; final grade appeals; and electronic devices as stated in the Blinn College Student Handbook, Faculty Handbook, Blinn College Catalog and specific technical program handbooks. All policies, guidelines and procedures in the Student and Faculty Handbook and the Board and Administrative Policy Manuals are applicable to this course

Civility Statement

Members of the Blinn College community, which includes faculty, staff and students, are expected to act honestly and responsibly in all aspects of campus life. Blinn College holds all members accountable for their actions and words. Therefore, all members should commit themselves to behave in a manner that recognizes personal respect and demonstrates concern for the personal dignity, rights, and freedoms of every member of the College community, including respect for College property and the physical and intellectual property of others.

      Civility Notification Statement. If a student is asked to leave the classroom because of uncivil behavior, the student may not return to that class until he or she arranges a conference with the instructor; it is the student’s responsibility to arrange for this conference. 

      This statement reflects step one in a possible four step process.  The Incivility Protocol is detailed in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Attendance Policy

The College District believes that class attendance is essential for student success; therefore, students are required to promptly and regularly attend all their classes. A record of attendance will be maintained from the first day of classes and/or the first day the student’s name appears on the roster through final examinations. If a student has one week’s worth of unexcused absences during the semester, he or she will be sent an e-mail by the College District requiring the student to contact his or her instructor and schedule a conference immediately to discuss his/her attendance issues. Should the student accumulate two weeks’ worth of unexcused absences, he or she will be administratively withdrawn from class.

There are four forms of excused absences recognized by the institution:

  1. observance of religious holy days—The student should notify his or her instructor(s) not later than the 15th day of the semester concerning the specific date(s) that the student will be absent for any religious holy day(s);
  2. representing the College District at an official institutional function;
  3. high school dual credit students representing the independent school district at an official institutional function; and
  4. military service.

Other absences may be considered excused at the discretion of the faculty member with appropriate documentation.  A student enrolled in a developmental course is subject to College District-mandated attendance policies. Failure to attend developmental classes shall result in removal from the course as defined by the College District.

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop a class he or she is no longer attending.  To officially drop a class the student must obtain the class withdrawal form from Enrollment Services, complete the class withdrawal form, secure the required signatures, and return the completed form to Enrollment Services. The last day to drop with a Q is according to the Academic Calendar.

Scholastic Integrity

Blinn College does not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or any other act of dishonesty with regard to the course in which you are enrolled.  The following text defines the faculty member’s responsibility with regard to the scholastic integrity expectation for this and all courses at Blinn College.

It is the responsibility of faculty members to maintain scholastic integrity at the College District by refusing to tolerate any form of scholastic dishonesty.  Adequate control of test materials, strict supervision during testing, and other preventive measures should be utilized, as necessary, to prevent cheating or plagiarism.  If there is compelling evidence that a student is involved in cheating or plagiarism, the instructor should assume responsibility and address the infraction.  Likewise, any student accused of scholastic dishonesty is entitled to due process as outlined in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).  The Scholastic Integrity Policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook. In a case of scholastic dishonesty, it is critical that written documentation be maintained at each level throughout the process.

Students with Disabilities

Blinn College is dedicated to providing the least restrictive learning environment for all students. Support services for students with documented disabilities are provided on an individual basis, upon request. Requests for services should be made directly to the Office of Special Populations serving the campus of your choice.  For the Bryan campus, the Office of Special Populations (Administration Building) can be reached at (979)209-7251.  The Brenham, Sealy and Schulenburg campuses are served by the Office of Special Populations on the Brenham campus (Administration Building Room 104) and can be reached at (979)830-4157.  Additional information can be found at www.blinn.edu/disability/index.html.

Final Grade Appeal

If a student wishes to appeal a final grade in a course, Blinn College Board Policy FLDB (Local), Course Grade Complaints, outlines the timeline for the appeal and the four steps in the appeal.  This policy is located in the Blinn College Student Handbook.

Electronic Devices

Cellular telephones and beepers/pagers must be disengaged while the student is in the Blinn College Library or any classroom/lab, unless otherwise instructed. Any noncompliance with this policy shall be addressed in accordance with the College District civility policy (administrative policy).  This information is contained in Blinn College Board Policy FLB (Local).

Course Policies


Attendance Policy Reminder

Missing lecture, lab or both will count as one absence.  Students accumulating two week’s worth of absences (3 classes during a summer 5 week semester) will be dropped.

In order to be considered as an excusable absence, you must notify me within 24 hours of being absent. You must present me with your documentation the first day you return to class from being absent.  If you are too sick to come to class, you are sick enough to see a doctor.  In this case, you MUST bring me a doctor’s note stating why you were absent.  This does not include a regular doctor’s appointment that was scheduled during class time, only unscheduled instances or medical emergencies where you are ill and need a doctor’s care. If a family emergency exists, you must provide documentation (ex: obituary, doctor’s note for the family member, funeral program etc.).  If an accident occurs, I must receive documentation that you were involved (ex: police report ).

If you are more than 10 minutes late to lecture or lab, or if you leave class for an unexcused extended period of time, you will be counted as absent.

Tardiness: Class and lab begin on time and you are expected to be in class and lab on time.  If you enter the class or lab room within 10 minutes of the beginning of class you will be counted as tardy, after this time you will be counted as absent. If you are tardy to class 3 times during the semester, these will count as one absence.  If you have a known problem or time conflict that would not allow you to attend class on time please speak with the instructor before the tardiness occurs.

Dropping this class

It is the student’s responsibility to officially drop a class he or she is no longer attending. To officially drop a class the student must obtain the class withdrawal form  from Enrollment Services, complete the class withdrawal form, secure the required signatures, and return the completed form to Enrollment Services. The last day to drop this semester with a “Q” is Friday, June 20, 2014.

If you have a complaint about your class, you should first request a conference with your instructor to try and resolve the problems or issues. If the problems or issues cannot be resolved at the instructor level, you should request a conference with the Academic Dean for Science, Engineering, and Math (Interim), Dr. John Beaver: Health Building 144, (979) 209-7300(979) 209-7300, jbeaver@blinn.edu
