Anatomy and Physiology 6th ed. by Kenneth S. Saladin, McGraw-Hill Higher Education, ISBN 007-337825-9.
LAB: A Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomy, 2nd ed. by Paul Krieger. Morton Publishing Company. ISBN: 089582-800-6.
The classrooms we will be using are somewhat small. (What real estate people would call “cozy”) Thus, entering lecture late is a disruption to the entire class. Thus, if you are routinely and/or excessively tardy, you may be asked to drop the course, or an instructor initiated drop may be conducted. If you do enter late, go straight to sit down. Do NOT come up to the front to get handouts - they will be availabe after class is over. Changes in lecture schedule, changes in exam dates, etc will be announced at the beginning of the lecture. As mentioned earlier, my exams are very thorough – Don’t be late! If you arrive late to an exam, you will not be given extra time to complete the exam. If you arrive after a student has already turned in the exam, you will not be allowed to take the exam.
NO Lecture exam grades are dropped.
|Course Grading Scale||90 - 100 = A 80 - 89 = B 70 - 79 = C 60 - 69 = D Below 59 = F|
|Determination of Final Grade||
Your grade for the lecture component of this class will be based soley on your exam grades. The average for the lecture component will be calculated by the average of your 5 lecture exams.
The lecture average will account for 75% of the final course grade. The remaining 25% will be determined from the Lab average.

|Academic Honesty||Academic honesty is expected from all students, and dishonesty in any form will not be tolerated. Please consult the LSC-PA policies (Section IX, subsection A, in the Faculty Handbook) for consequences of academic dishonesty.|
NO GRADES ARE DROPPED WHEN CALCULATING YOUR LECTURE AVERAGE OR YOUR OVERALL COURSE AVERAGE.
If you email me about a grade, it MUST be from your LSCPA email and contain your LSCPA student ID number
|ADA Considerations||The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Special Populations Coordinator, Room 231, in the Madison Monroe Building. The phone number is (409) 984-6241.|
Some material in this course may be copyrighted. They may be used only for instructional purposes this semester,
by students enrolled in this course. These materials are being used fairly and legally.
No one may distribute or share these copyrighted materials in any medium or format with anyone outside this class,
including publishing essays with copyrighted material, uploading copyrighted material to Facebook or YouTube, or
painting or performing copyrighted material for public display.
Copyright violation is not the same thing as plagiarism. Plagiarism is intellectual dishonesty. Offenses of plagiarism result in lower grades or failing scores, and professors and the college strictly enforce plagiarism rules. There is never any acceptable use of plagiarism. Copyright violation is a legal offense, punishable by large fines and penalties.
Copyrighted material can be used if permission from the material’s creator is obtained, or if its use meets the standards of fair use in an educational setting. For example, a student can quote a line from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in a report without violating copyright but still be guilty of plagiarism if the quotation is not properly documented.
If you are in doubt about what material can be freely used, ask your professor or contact the Dean of Library Services, at (409) 984-6216.
Assessment is a process by which LSCPA can help you learn better and gauge the level of progress you have made to
attain knowledge, skills, beliefs, and values. It also helps your professors understand how to improve teaching
and testing methods in your classes, and it helps each department understand and improve degree and certificate
Periodically LSC-PA will collect assessment data for research and reporting purposes, including statistical data and sometimes copies of your work. Be assured that all material the college uses for assessment purposes will be kept confidential. To ensure anonymity, your name will be removed from any material we use for assessment purposes, including video-recorded performances, speeches, and projects.
If you object to allowing LSC-PA to use your material for assessment purposes, submit a letter stating so to your professor by the 12th class day. You will still be required to participate in whatever assessments are being done; we just won’t use your data.
What’s the difference between assessment and grades? The grades you get on papers, projects, speeches, and assignments are specific types of focused assessment. LSC-PA’s assessment efforts include class grades, surveys, standardized tests, and other tools.
Federal privacy laws apply to college students. This means that college employees, including instructors, cannot
divulge information to third parties, including parents and legal guardians of students. Even if the students are
minors, information about their college work cannot be shared with anyone except in very limited circumstances.
Anyone requesting information about a student should be referred to the Registrar. Instructors will be notified in writing by that Office about what information may be released and to whom.
Please remember that releasing private information about a student, however innocuous it may seem, can be a violation of federal law, with very serious consequences.
Circumstances under which information may be released:
An adult student may submit, to the Registrar, a handwritten, signed note granting permission for release of
information. The note must specify what information may be divulged, and it must specify the name of the person
to whom the information may be given.
The Registrar’s office is located in the Student Center room 303B, and can be reached at (409) 984-6165.
This course helps add to the students’ overall collegiate experience in the following ways:
|Degree Plan Evaluation||
A Degree Plan Evaluation will help you determine which classes you need to complete your program.
All of the classes that you have taken that apply to your declared major will be listed on the right. If you have a class that still needs to be completed, a “NO” will be listed on the right next to the required class.
