Anatomy and Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function,
Saladin 6th Edition, McGraw-Hill. Package includes Study Guide
Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology (Fetal Pig Version), T.R. Martin, McGraw-Hill, 2010.
Students: If you took Bio 202 last semester and bought the required materials (Saladin Anatomy and Physiology 6e and Martin Fetal Pig lab manual 2e), and have them, then you don’t need to buy anything for this course. If you don’t have either one or both, you can buy special customized paper copies of either the lab manual and/or book in the UWM bookstore (only covering the second half of the course).
You can also buy customized ebooks (cheapest way to go) directly on-line at http://create.mcgraw-hill.com/shop and then enter in the following ISBN's to buy them:
Customized EBOOK Saladin 9781121834217

Class Powerpoint slides are available and can be used as a study guide.
Lectures using lecture capture will be available.
Class lecture notes will available on web but it is highly recommended that you take your own lecture notes.
Attendance at lectures and laboratory classes
Respect for instructors and other students
Knowledge of subject manner as assessed by exams (and for laboratory classes also quizzes and assignments)
To have read chapter before lecture on the topic
The expectation is that students will spend 3 hours of studying and other work per credit hour per week in addition to attending the laboratory classes and lecture to complete the course successfully.
This translates to 12 hours per week in addition to attending lectures and laboratory classes to achieve the learning goals of this course. Supplementary Instruction
Students are strongly encouraged to attend the supplementary instruction sessions. Details to be announced by the SI instructor

<60 % F
There will be a 15-minute weekly quiz in laboratory covering laboratory material.
GER Credit:The general education requirement (GER) is met by providing 1) a basic knowledge of human physiology from which students can interpret the anatomy and functions of their bodily systems, such as cardiovascular, pulmonary, gastrointestinal, renal, endocrine and reproductive systems; and learn of the latest advances in biomedicine. 2) Some specific goals which serve as a basis for classroom assessment are to increase the student’s comprehension of the interactions of bodily systems with the external environment; analyze and interpret their daily diets; be exposed to the latest developments in assisted reproduction, HIV/AIDS, etc.; to read critically and compare lay-oriented news coverage of biomedicine with actual peer-reviewed publications; and to satisfy their natural curiosity about their bodies and bodily functions. The laboratory portion of the course then allows the student to extrapolate practical application from the lecture material and learn how to perform and interpret EKGs, assess lung function, perform animal dissections, etc. These goals are evaluated in both lecture and laboratory throughout the semester via three examinations; weekly laboratory quizzes; 3) demonstration to the laboratory instructor of student learning by mastery of the dissected material, for example; and laboratory homework assignments such as 4) creating a written, software-guided Nutrition Project to evaluate personal dietary intake and compare with an ”ideal” diet.
THERE ARE NO MAKE UPS FOR MISSED EXAMS - LECTURE OR LAB (except by arrangement with the instructor or lab instructor). THEREFORE, YOU MUST ATTEND CLASSES THOSE FIVE DAYS, AS LISTED IN THE SYLLABUS. THERE ARE NO DROPPED EXAMS. If you have three (3) finals within a 24-hr period, see me.
If anyone has need for note-taking or special test-taking accommodations, please feel free to come and discuss this with me early in the semester; and contact the Student Accessibility Center. If you do not wish to have a unique student identifier (part of your I.D. or other number) and your grades on D2L/posted, please see me. You can also procure your final grade on PAWS.
SPECIAL NOTES: If you take this course upon consent of instructor, you cannot receive credit for taking the prerequisites as a later date, or receive > 9 credits for 204-150, -202, and -203 combined.

Tutoring services available at Tutoring Center. The Supplementary Instructor will review the lecture classes and posting their meeting times on the class D2L site.
RE: Nutrition project use, FoodWise CD-ROM; www.usda.gov/cnpp or www.shareware.com,
search “diet”; or, zdnet.com, or any others you may find.
You MUST attend lectures regularly if you expect to do well in this course. The lecture notes on the course website are designed to help you organize the notes you take during lectures. You will NOT be adequately prepared for lecture exams if you only use these as a substitute for coming to class and taking your own notes. Also you will not get the attendance and other TopHatMonocle points. YOU ARE ALSO REQUIRED TO ATTEND LABORATORIES.
In the event of disruption of normal classroom activities e.g. due to weather or a disease outbreak, the format for this course may be modified to enable completion of the course. You will then be provided an addendum to this syllabus that will supersede the original.
Students are responsible for the honest completion and representation of their work and for refraining from giving or receiving unauthorized aid on quizzes, exams, or assignments. At the very least, cheating will result in a grade of zero on the exam, quiz, or assignment involved. In addition, any such instance of academic misconduct will be automatically reported to university authorities and could result in more serious consequences, including a grade of F for the course and/or academic suspension.
