Biological Sciences 7 is an introductory course in human anatomy. This course is intended for students considering careers in the health occupations. The course can be an elective for Biological Science majors or non-Biological Science majors. It is a transferable course equivalent to introductory human anatomy at other colleges and universities. It can be used to fulfill the general education requirement for science. Bio 10 or Bio 15, or an equivalent course, is a prerequisite. In addition, Chem 30A and 30B are recommended. Students who have not completed the prerequisites or did so more than 3 years ago should contact the instructor. (LVN or RN students at Gavilan may substitute Bio 9 to satisfy the prerequisite class.)

Bio 7 consists of 2 hours of lecture and 6 hours of lab per week. A cadaver will be viewed in class. Though it may be helpful to student learning, cadaver dissection is not required. The preservative used for the cadaver is formaldehyde. This chemical is mutagenic. Exposure will be minimal but students who are pregnant or

considering becoming pregnant may wish to discuss this with their doctor. Students should use proper protection when observing preserved tissue.

Learning Objectives

1. Identify structures of the human body. ILO: 2,7 Measure: written exam, homework, lab report

2. Relate structures of the human body with their functions. ILO: 2,7 Measure: written exam, homework, lab report

3. Develop basic laboratory and dissection skills which they will be able to utilize in further investigations ILO: 2 Measure: demonstration, homework, lab report

4. Apply knowledge of structure learned at one level or system to other levels or systems. ILO: 2, 7 Measure: written exam, homework, lab report.

Grades – Grades will be earned as a percentage of class points earned to the total possible. The planned total of possible points that could be earned currently is 3000. Points currently are planned to be split approximately 35% for the lab and 40% for the lecture part of the course and 25% for a special project integrating lecture and lab information. For the lecture part of the course, points will be earned from mid-term exams, online and oral chapter quizzes and the final exam. For the lab portion of the course, points will be earned from lab practical exams, online and oral lab quizzes and the keeping a lab notebook.

A group project (the Body Project) will test the integration of material learned from lecture and lab. This

consists of building a human body from a skeletal base. Student groups will be provided a list of structures to be included in the project. Additional structures will earn the group more points. The project will be graded on

completeness, accuracy and ability to represent structure relationships in 3 dimensions. In addition students shall evaluate the members of their group and these evaluations will be a factor in the final individual project grade.

Students may earn half credit of the points not earned from a lab practical or lecture mid-term exam by

correcting incorrect answers on the quiz or mid-term. In addition to supplying the correct answer, a reference to where the answer was found will be required to recapture some of the points missed. Students should submit corrections as soon as possible after the quiz/exam is returned to the student. If the submitted correction is correct, 50% of the original point value of the question will be awarded. If not correct, the student may submit a second try at corrections. No corrections will be accepted after the date for the final exam. For online tests, multiple attempts will be allowed. Corrections can be made by answering correctly on subsequent attempts. Extra credit points may also be earned from an optional paper or project and from attendance at SI or tutor study sessions. The details of this will be discussed later in this handout. Below is a table of the proposed point values of the various items that comprise a student’s grade.

A = at least 90%

B = at least 80% but less than 90% C = at least 70% but less than 80% D = at least 60% but less than 70%

F = less than 60%; also for withdrawal after withdrawal deadline or failure to notify instructor of withdrawal NRS = withdrawal by June 20, 2018

W = withdrawal after 6/20/18 until 7/18/18

I= Incomplete. (Granted only after withdrawal deadline for justifiable reasons.)

The instructor reserves the right to make adjustments to the point system. Students will be notified in advance. An example of such an adjustment would be a change in the total points that can be earned.

To complete this course a student will need to earn enough points to be assigned a passing grade according to the grading criteria discussed in this document.

Class attendance and accommodations

College policy allows a student to be dropped from a course if they miss one more class hour than the unit value of the course. However, it is the student’s responsibility to formally drop the class either through admissions, in person or by telephone. If you foresee missing more than one or two class days please inform the instructor. You will be responsible for all material covered in class. The instructor does not include attendance in calculating student grades. However, the lab notebook does require attendance at the lab sessions as it is a record of your actions during lab.

Students requiring special services or arrangements because of hearing, visual or other disability should contact their instructor, counselor, or the Disability Resource Center Office.

Students are expected to exercise academic honesty and integrity. Violations such as cheating or plagiarism will result in disciplinary action. Such action may include recommendation for dismissal. Further discussion is in the Student Handbook. Expected conduct during examinations is discussed on the last pages of this document.

The following schedules are best estimates of when topics will be covered. Depending on the

circumstances that occur after the start of the semester the schedule may be amended. The instructor will keep students informed of schedule modifications.

Procedures for Examinations

The following standards will be enforced during the giving and taking of exams in the classroom: 1. All examinations given in-class will have an instructor in the room at all times.

2. There will be no talking during an exam

3. If a student has a question about the test, the student should raise their hand. When the instructor acknowledges them, they should come to the instructor to ask the question or the instructor will come to the student. The instructor will answer only non-substantive questions. If the question is deemed relevant to the rest of the class, the instructor will also give the answer/information to the rest of the class.

4. Books, papers, coats and all other personal items are to be placed away from the workspace during an examination. Cell phones are to be turned off prior to the examination.

5. It is the responsibility of each student to position themselves so as to be as far away from other students as possible. Keep the papers of other students out of your line of sight.

6. It is the responsibility of each student to monitor their own behavior. Please keep the possibility of suspicion on you to a minimum.

7. If the student’s behavior during an exam is deemed suspicious, the instructor will immediately collect the student’s examination papers and an alternative examination may be given at a later time. Evidence of cheating on exams is grounds for a student’s dismissal for unprofessional conduct. 8. After completing the exam, the student is to turn in the exam, collect their personal belongings and

quietly leave the room immediately. After leaving, please do not wait just outside the classroom but leave the area so as to avoid possibly disturbing student’s still taking the exam.

I have read and agree to abide by the guidelines set forth in this procedure statement and by the guidelines set forth in the college catalogue.
