HUMAN ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY
ANAT 150 SYLLABUS
Anatomy and physiology form the foundation for health-related professions, as Geography is to
History. This course is not intended to make you an Anatomist-physiologist, but I assure you that
your horizon will be expanded to the infinite. You will be aware of how intricate, complex, and
marvelous the human body is. This course will organize your curiosity and desire for health-
related applicable knowledge.
There are different ways to approach the study of Anatomy, but if we include Physiology, the
systematic approach is the most effective.
Human Anatomy and Physiology 150/151 is designed for Biology and non-Biology majors.
The course provides both, lecture and laboratory sessions, thus meeting the College's
general education requirement for graduation. This course meets the requirements for
transfer to Allied Health programs such as Registered Nursing, Registered Cytotechnology,
Registered Respiratory therapy, Surgical Technician, Emergency Medical Care, Physical
therapy, Radiation technology, Occupation therapy; recommended in Physician Assistant,
Medical Technology and Speech pathology programs, and other Bachelor or Master
degrees that require a lower division science with lab sessions. This course is Associate
Degree Applicable, and the course credit transfers to both CSU and UC.
A&P 150 is the first of two-semester combined lecture and laboratory activities,
emphasizing on the advanced understanding of the structural and functional aspects of
the human body.
This first unit introduces anatomy, its vocabulary, and briefly overview the systems of the
body. Secondly, overview the inorganic as well as the organic elements, which are the
basic components of cells and tissues. The third chapter of this unit studies the cell as the
functional unit of any living organisms. To end this unit we will study how this cells group
and differentiate into specialized tissue.
The rest of the course begins the study of the body organized by systems. The anatomy
and physiology of the integumentary system, skeletal system & bones, muscular system &
muscles, joints, and nervous system are the objectives in this course. The remaining
systems are studied in ANAT151.

2. A Medical Dictionary. Following is two of the most recommended medical dictionary:
Taber's Cyclopedic Medical Dictionary
Dorland's Medical Dictionary
Grading will be according to straight percentage. The grading scale will be as follow:
59 or less F
The evaluation of the course will be in a continuing basis and upon cumulative percentages
derived from quizzes, exams, Lab practical, and lab reports; and its relative weight within the
Exams (total of 4 exams)- 8% ea - 32 %
Lab practical (total 4 practical) 6% ea - 24 %
Quizzes (6 out of 8) 4% ea - 24 %
Laboratory Reports - 20 %
TOTAL 100 %
In order to receive a full credit for lab reports, they need to be on time. If you miss the due date
for a specific lab report, you may bring it on the next laboratory exam to receive 75% of its value.
In the event that you miss these two opportunities, I can take the late lab anytime but will weight
50% of its original value.
Scantron Quizzstrip (short) form No.815-E for quizzes.

Color pencils are useful when reviewing with the study guide
Anatomy 150 Syllabus
1. Participation and attendance:
Your participation during lecture will be measure by your attendance. If you have
perfect attendance you are rewarded with additional 5% to your written exams
Your participation during laboratory will be measure by your attendance. If you have
perfect attendance to the laboratory, you are rewarded with additional 5% to your lab
2. Study Guide. A lecture exam can be upgraded 15 points if you fill the section, "building the
framework" of the corresponding chapters tested (chapters of the study guide are numbered
same as the textbook). You do not have to tear the pages, just let me go over it, and I will
return it back to you.
The Study Guide is due the next Monday after the respective exam, except for the last exam.
If you want to add points to the last exam, you have to bring the study guide on of before the
last day of class, 12/17/02.
3. Three Computer simulation exercise sheets are available if you are interested for additional
lab points (see breakdown of grade)
4. More points? Look for extra-credit questions in quizzes and exams.
The extra-credits are not gifts; in fact they are more work for you and for me. But the important
thing is that you earn them by doing extra work that is for your benefit, thus increasing the
chance of "digesting and processing" the information.
REQUIREMENT FOR PARTICIPATION/ATTENDANCE CREDIT
1. Attendance/participation during lecture-hour will be closely recorded. Full credit will be given
to those who have one or none absence. Two absences reduce 25%, and three-absences
50% of the full credit. No credit will be given with four or more absences.
2. No extra credit will be added if there is any missing assignments (quiz, exam, lab reports)
a. In your grade printout, you may see extra credit points despite of missing
assignments, but those are subject to change after 12/12/02 (makeup day), if you
choose not to update your course work.
The laboratory manual has four main sections:
1. The principle laboratory lessons, Exercises 1 through 46 (we will use 1 22). The number
of each exercise is white over a dark blue background. Some labs en with "A", indicating
that there is a respective Physio-Ex-computer simulator lab.
2. Corresponding "Review Sheet" to the above exercises. The number is white over green
background. THIS IS THE ONE THAT I GRADE.
3. Atlas section for histology and bones. It has a border colored lavender (histology) and red
4. Physio-Ex: Physiology computer simulator lab. These exercises need to be done with the
enclosed CD. This section is also subdivided into the Exercise (blue boxed number) and
the Review exercise sheet. All the numbers end in "B" because there is a respective
exercise in the principle laboratory lessons (first section)

ABOUT GRADE REPORTS
If you want your grade reports sent to your e-mail address, please indicate so, in the back of the
scantron of your first quiz.
ATTENDANCE. Roll will be taken every day of lecture and lab, except when there is a
quiz or exam (your scantron is the attendance record). Two unexcused absences are
allowed, after which, the student may be dropped from the course at the instructor's
ARRIVE ON TIME. All students are expected to arrive to class on time. If you work and
estimate that you may have time-conflict, please let me know.
To elaborate the laboratory reports you need the laboratory manual and the
textbook. Most of the information is in the lab manual, para that is not always the case.
MAKE-UPS OF EXAMS AND QUIZZES. During the last week of regular classes and
finals week, make-up quizzes and exams will be administered in the laboratory setting on
December 12, 2002. You have to tell me your intention of making-up an exam or quiz in
AVOID LATE ASSIGNMENTS, procrastination is our worst enemy, don't let it rule you
NO EATING, DRINKING, OR SMOKING IN THE LAB.
ALL PAGERS must be SET ON SILENT MODE during class.
ALL CELL-PHONES need to be OFF OR IN SILENT MODE during lecture. If there
is a temporary unusual situation that requires been localized 24-hour/day, let
me know. If this situation is prolonged, for more than 2 days, you need to make
arrangements with the security office and they will notify you in such event.
CHEATING WILL NOT BE TOLERATED. Instances of cheating or ANY form of
academic dishonesty will be handled in strict accordance with college guidelines.
NO HORSEPLAY. ANY disruptive and/or unsafe behavior WILL NOT BE TOLERATED.
Any person involved will be asked to leave the room.
In accordance with college policies, only those enrolled in this course are allowed in the
class and lab rooms.
Get organized and follow a daily plan
Read the chapter ahead of time, but do not try to learn the material during the first
reading, just familiarized with the terminology.
Use the lab time wisely.
Form study partners/groups
Use tutors if available, at the counseling center.
Maintain a positive attitude.
Medical Dictionary, Colored pencils and a calculator are very helpful tools.
