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.

Respondus Lockdown Browser (RLB) is required on any computer to be used to take an exam/quiz. It is the responsibility of the student to have a functioning computer and internet in order to take exams during the scheduled period of availability for each exam. Computers in LSCPA computer labs and Student Success Center are available for use for exams. Exams not completed by the end of the availability dates will be available for the following TWO days with an incremental time penalty assessed. Exams not completed will receive a grade of 0. No grades are dropped.

Final Exam Date December 9, 2023 - 12:5 AM   Through  December 12, 2023 - 11:59 PM

Determination of
Final Grade

Your grade for this class will be calculated using your 5 exam grades and your average of the online MAP assignments. Each exam grade will count for 16.6% of the course average while the MAP average will count for 17%. 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.

MAP assignments completed after the due date will be assessed a late penalty of 20%-30%.  MAP assignments not started will be given a "0".

Calculating your Lecture Average: 

Extra Credit = (RLB/20) + (Orientation & Course Policies Quiz/20) + (DB1/4) + (DB2/4) + Group Project 

Lecture Average = (((Ex1 + Ex2 + Ex3 + Ex4 + Final + Extra Credit) /5)*0.83) + (MAP average x 0.17)
