COURSE DESCRIPTION
Anatomy & Physiology is a senior-level laboratory course that could be taken for college credit.  Biology is a course requirement and chemistry is recommended.  During the year we will study the concepts and terminology associated with human anatomy and physiology.  The class should help each student apply knowledge gained to everyday situations as well as preparation for other college courses.  Topics of this class include skeletal structure, muscle tissue, blood, heart, metabolism, and others.  Through close study of these topics, students should become aware of God’s creative power.
 
COURSE GOALS
            The anatomy & physiology course will promote the following:

 
  1. Recognition of the role of God as Creator, Master Designer, and Sustainer of all life.
  2. Understanding the levels of organization in the human body.
  3. Understanding of the interrelationship between structure and function in cells, tissues, organs, and systems.
  4. Recognition of the molecular basis of structure and function.
  5. Participation in laboratory exercises.
 
 GRADING POLICY

            Your semester grade is divided into these areas:
        
1.Participation: 15%
2.Laboratory Work: 20%
3. Journal Club: 5%

4.Chapter Tests: 30%
5.Final Exam: 30%

1.Participation: Homework consists of assignments given from the textbook, worksheets, study guides, etc.   Quizzes will be given periodically, ANNOUNCED or UNANNOUNCED, to determine if each student is studying the material.
2.Laboratory Work: consists of student participation and written work in planned lab activities, lab quizzes, and research projects.  A Lab Final will be given the prior to the semester final exam covering activities performed in the lab.
3.Journal Club: Each student must read a science article from a science magazine and write a one-page report about it to be e-mailed to the instructor.  More information will be given later about this learning experience.
4.Chapter Tests: given throughout the semester covering material studied during each chapter.
5.Final Exam: a cumulative test covering all material from each semester (three total final exams).

 
The grading system and grade point values listed on p. 23 of the MAA Handbook are used for this class.
 
ATTENDANCE POLICY
The general attendance policy of Midland Adventist Academy that is found in the Handbook is followed in the science classes. 
                        If a student is sick or has obtained an excused absence, it is the       responsibility of the student to see the teacher the day the student arrives back in     class.  If a test was done WHILE the student was absent, that test will be made up    on the day the student arrives back to class, unless previous special arrangements   are made with the teacher.  As a general rule, the number of days absent will be         the number of days the student has to make up the work.
                        If a student has an unexcused absence, any work missed will not be            accepted.  If you skip class, any assignments or tests due on that day will be given            a zero.
 
CLASSROOM RULES
