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.
Required 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 are 2 REQUIRED items for the Bio 2302 (A&P2) :

1)"Human Anatomy & Physiology", 2nd ed. by Erin Amerman, Pearson Publishing, ISBN: 978-0134-754239

2)Modified Mastering A&P Access code that goes with the lecture textbook by Amerman. This MAP access code is ABSOLUTELY required. This is the same access code that is required for the A&P lab and you can use the same one...i.e. you do not have to purchase it twice.

Additional Materials/Resources A functioning computer with a webcam is required to take all online exams and quizzes.  It is the student's responsibility to have both. Alternatively, exams may be taken at one of the computer labs on the LSCPA campus.
Corequisites/Prerequisites Corequisite(s): BIOL 2102. Prerequisite(s): BIOL 2301 and BIOL 2101

Determination of
Final Grade
Your grade for this class will the average of your 5 exam grades and your average of the online MAP assignments. Each exam as well as the MAP average will count for approximately 16.667% of the course average. Exams that are not taken will receive a grade of "0". There are no re-takes on exams. No grades are dropped when calculating course averages.
A Mastering A&P access code is required to access the online MAP homework assignments. MAP assignments not completed will receive a grade of "0".

Calculating your Lecture Average: 

Daily Quiz Points:  "Daily" quizzes may be given at the beginning of each class period.  They will be short (no more than 2-3 questions) and will cover the BASICS from the material of the previous lecture.

Extra Credit (maximum of 20 total points) = Group Project (10 points) + Daily Quiz Average (10 points)

Lecture Average = (Ex1 + Ex2 + Ex3 + Ex4 + Final + MAP average + Extra Credit) / 6

The administrative details are your responsibility (You must officially drop the course).

If you miss an exam because of an excused absence, your lowest lab exam score will be used as the score for the exam that you missed. Excused absences include medical and family emergencies and are determined at the instructor's discretion. You can only miss one exam with an excused absence (excluding the final). Poor preparation or conflict with other scheduled exams is not a valid excuse for missing an exam.
