The REQUIRED workbook for the Bio 2101 lab (A&P1) is Workbook to Accompany Anatomy & Physiology Revealed, Version 3.2, 3rd edition, by Robert B. Broyles, Jr., McGraw Hill Higher Ed., ISBN 978-1-260-17014-6. This is a new edition of the workbook. The page numbers given in the lab assignments are for the Version 3.2. The previous edition, (version 3.0) will not work due to the differences in page numbers.
An access code for the Anatomy & Physiology Revealed website is also REQUIRED. The access code can also be purchased online directly from McGraw Hill on the A&P Revealed website. The instructions for the online purchase are posted in the Course Information folder on the course website.

Lab Average = (Lab Ex1 + Lab Ex2 + Lab Ex3 + Lab Ex4) / 4
No grades are dropped when calculating averages.
Make-ups: No makeup exams are given and there are NO “re-takes” on any exam. Exams that are not taken during the scheduled availability period will be available with an incremental time penalty imposed.
All lab assignments are completed using information in the textbook, in the lab assignment, and using the Anatomy & Physiology Revealed website. For the Anatomy & Physiology Revealed website for which you WILL NEED AN ACCESS CODE.
The homework assignments are to be completed and used by you to study for the lab exams. Homework assignments are not submitted.
Any questions regarding exam grades need to be emailed to me from your LSCPA email. I will respond via email. Exam grades are available to you on the course website immediately after completing exams. It is not possible to view your exam after completion unless you make arrangements with me to come to campus to view it.
This is an online class. It is YOUR responsibility to have a RELIABLE computer AND Internet access for the duration of this course. Please note that while many of the course materials can be accessed using a cell phone and/or tablet device, there are many questions on the homework assignments that can only be accessed on a computer (desktop or laptop). In addition; EXAMS CAN ONLY BE TAKEN ON A LAPTOP OR DESKTOP COMPUTER. If your computer breaks for any reason during the semester, IT DOES NOT EXCUSE YOU FROM THE REQUIREMENTS AND DEADLINES OF THE COURSE. It is YOUR responsibility to make sure all assignments and exams are completed by their due date. Any assignments and/or exams not completed by the end of the availability date will receive a grade of "0" zero.
In this online class it is your responsibility to schedule your time so that you have adequate time to complete all assignments and master all material prior to the scheduled exams. There are no scheduled class "meeting times". If you have questions, you can come by during my office hours, or you can email me at anytime. You will need to schedule time to complete exams during their period of availability. You will be able to take an exam after the scheduled availability period, but there will be a time penalty imposed.
