1.     Describe the structural organization and physiology of the cardiovascular system.

2.     Describe the anatomy and physiology of the lymphatic and immune systems including the cell types
       and mechanisms involved in specific and nonspecific defense mechanisms in conferring immunity.

3.     Describe the anatomical structures and physiologic mechanisms of the respiratory system.

4.     List and describe the anatomy and physiology of the digestive system including the process of
       digestion, nutrient absorption, and excretion of wastes from the body.

5.     Describe the structural organization and physiology of the urinary system.

6.     List and describe the basic anatomy and physiology of the glands of the endocrine system. Include
       the hormones produced and their functions in maintaining homeostasis.

7.     Describe the anatomical features and functions of both the male and female reproductive systems.
       Explain the development of the human life cycle from fertilization thru the fetal stage.

8.     Describe the metabolic processes of the human body.

9.     Define and explain the basic principles of genetics. Describe and give an example of both
       monohybrid and dihybrid crosses.

GRADING: Each lecture examination has equal value toward your final lecture average and will
constitute 60% of your BIOL 2020 grade. Your instructor will determine the number of lecture
examinations and the material to be covered on each lecture examination. All students will take a
comprehensive final examination which will count 10% of your earned grade in BIOL 2020. The last
lecture exam will be given by your instructor during the final examination period as published by the
college. The departmental comprehensive exam will be given via MyVolState Online on the
computer and will be scheduled toward the end of the semester. Your instructor will provide
more information on the particulars of the departmental comprehensive final exam near the end
of the semester. Comprehensive exams for Livingston students will be given in Livingston. Comps
for Hunters Lane students will be given at Hunters Lane. Comps for on campus day and evening
students will be given on campus. The information will be available and posted following the
holiday break.

Your grade in this course will be determined as follows:

       60% - lecture average
       30% - laboratory average
       10% - comprehensive final

Only the final average will receive a letter grade. The final grades to be assigned in this course and their
numerical values are as follows:

        A = 90 - 100 average on all work
        B = 80 - 89 average on all work
        C = 70 - 79 average on all work
        D = 60 - 69 average on all work
        F = Below 60

         I = Incomplete - This symbol indicates that the student has not completed the requirements for
         a course during the semester for some unavoidable reason -- that is acceptable to the
         instructor. The student should contact the instructor immediately in an effort to complete
         course requirements. If the "I" is not completed within the next semester, the "I" will convert to
         an "F".

         N = audit: no grade or credit

         W = withdrawn

departmental comprehensive exam will 1) constitute the grade for a missed exam or 2) substitute for a
lower grade on a previous lecture exam.

ATTENDANCE: You will not receive a specific grade for attendance though you will sign an attendance
sheet each day. Poor attendance seriously impairs your ability to succeed and often imposes a burden on
other students. As indicated in the college catalog, the instructor has the right to request that the Vice
President of Academic Affairs withdraw any student demonstrating poor attendance. When attendance
is poor, leniency should not be expected in borderline situations. Your input in the classroom is of value
to the instructor, yourself, and other students. Poor attendance deprives all involved.

ABSENCE FROM EXAMINATIONS OR QUIZZES: Examinations will be given only at the times assigned by
the instructor unless a student is specifically excused by a vice president. Absence from a major
examination will result in a grade of zero for that exam. With appropriate documentation, the grade
achieved on the comprehensive portion of the final examination will be substituted for one missed
examination. Absence from the final examination (without prior arrangement with your instructor) will
result in a grade of F.

ACADEMIC DISHONESTY: Academic dishonesty is a serious violation and students should be
aware of the College's policy. The VSCC Student Handbook states the following with regard to
academic dishonesty:

       "Plagiarism, cheating, and other forms of dishonesty are prohibited. Students guilty
       of academic misconduct, either directly or indirectly through participation or
       assistance, are immediately responsible to the instructor of the class. In addition to
       other possible disciplinary sanctions which may be imposed through the regular
       institutional procedures as a result of academic misconduct, the instructor has the
       authority to assign an F or a zero for the exercise or examination or to assign an F in
       the course."

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY: If Volunteer State Community College is officially open, this
class will meet as scheduled, all assignments will be due as scheduled, and any scheduled
tests/quizzes/exams will be given. If VSCC is officially closed, all assignments will be due at the
next regular class meeting. Likewise, any tests/quizzes/exams will be also be given at the next
regular class meeting.

FOR STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES: It is the student's responsibility to self-identify with the
Office of Disability Services to receive accommodations and services in accordance with The
Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Only those students with appropriate documentation and
who are registered with the Office of Disability Services will receive accommodations. For further
information, contact the Office of Disability Services at (615) 230-3472, TDD (615) 230-3488, or
visit the office, which is located in Room 108, Wood Campus Center.

EQUAL OPPORTUNITY STATEMENT: Volunteer State Community College, a Tennessee Board of
Regents Institution, is an equal opportunity institution and ensures equal opportunity for all
persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, disability status, age, sexual
orientation, or status as a qualified veteran with a disability or veteran of the Vietnam era.
