Course Information
Description Anatomy and Physiology II is the second part of a two-course sequence. It is a study of the structure and function of the human body including the following systems: endocrine, cardiovascular, immune, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive (including nutrition), urinary (including fluid and electrolyte balance), and reproductive (including human development and genetics). Emphasis is on interrelationships among systems and regulation of physiological functions involved in maintaining homeostasis.
Prerequisites Corequisite(s): BIOL 2102.
Prerequisite(s): BIOL 2301 and BIOL 2101

Program Student Learning Outcomes
Textbooks Textbook Purchasing Statement: A student attending Lamar State College Port Arthur is not under any obligation to purchase a textbook from the college-affiliated bookstore. The same textbook may also be available from an independent retailer, including an online retailer.

There is a textbook and an access code that are required for this course. The textbook and access code are available at the LSCPA bookstore as a packaged bundle with the ISBN number 978-0-135-19376-1. The textbook is Human A&P, 2nd ed by Erin Amerman. The access code is "Modified Mastering A&P".
The ISBN number for the textbook only is 978-0134-754239
The ISBN number for the Mastering A&P access code is 978-0-134-78807-4
The Access code can also be purchased directly from Pearson on the Mastering A&P site (Cheapest place). If purchased online, there will be 2 options (approximate prices) a $70 version and a $120 version. The ONLY difference between these is the $120 version includes an electronic textbook (etext) while the $70 version does not. This MAP access code is ABSOLUTELY required and you will also be able to use it for both the lecture and the lab. If you have an MAP access code used with the Amerman textbook that is less than 24 months old (since it was activated) you do not need to purchase another. Instructions for purchase are posted in the Course Information folder on the course website.

Determination of
Final Grade
Your grade for this class will the average of your 5 exam grades and your average of the online homework assignments.

Your Online homework assignments consist of Mastering A&P assignments and Dynamic Study modules completed on the Pearson Mastering site. The MAP assignments will count for 66.33% of the homework average and the DSM assignments will count for the remaining 33.67% of the homework average.
The average for the lecture component will be calculated by the average of your 5 lecture exams and the average of all of the homework assignments.

NO grades are dropped and any uncompleted assignments and/or exams will be averaged in with a grade of "0".
