Understanding Human Anatomy and Physiology by Sylvia S. Mader (McGraw-Hill)

The Anatomy Coloring Book by Wynn Kapit and Lawrence Elson (Benjamin/Cummings)

 

COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is designed to acquaint students with the structure and function of the human body. An integrated presentation of the anatomy and physiology of organ systems is given. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES (Learning Outcomes):

 

After completing this course, students will be able to:

1.      Describe the major organ systems of the human body

2.      Explain how those organ systems work

3.      Explain how many disease processes interfere with normal function

4.      Explain how the body defends against disease

5.      Identify and explain the inter-relatedness of the body’s systems

ASSESSMENT: 

 

The student’s attainment of the learning outcomes will be assessed in the following ways:

 

The student’s understanding of the terminology, concepts, and theory of human anatomy and physiology will be measured through weekly quizzes, three exams, each covering one-third of the course,  weekly written assignments, and lab projects. 

 

 

ASSIGNMENTS:

IMPORTANT! Students are expected to read the material in the text OUTSIDE OF CLASS.

Students will be expected to complete assigned readings and written assignments by their due dates. Students will also study the basic key terms and the clinical key terms at the end of chapters, review the study questions, and complete the objective questions to be turned in at the end of each chapter. These study questions as well as the objective questions will be included on the quizzes and tests. Quizzes and exams will be constructed on a True or False, Multiple-Choice, Matching, Identification, Fill-In, and Short- and Long-Essay format.

 IF YOU ARE HAVING PROBLEMS UNDERSTANDING THE READING OR THE MATERIAL COVERED IN CLASS PLEASE SEE ME ASAP!!  (However, I will expect that you have made a good faith effort to attend class and read the assigned material). J
