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.

Determination of
Final Grade
Your grade in this course will be calculated by the average of your 5 lecture exams and the average of all of the homework assignments.
Exams will consist of multiple choice, multiple answer and short answer questions. Short answer questions will require you to write definitions, explain a concept, list items, label, etc. Approximately 20% - 30% of the test will be short answer. MY EXAMS ARE VERY THOROUGH!! YOU ARE ENCOURAGED TO USE THE REVIEW QUESTIONS AS A GUIDE FOR WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW FOR THE EXAMS.
Course Policies
Instructor Policies Academic Dishonesty, Cheating and Disruptive Behavior
The following cannot be stressed enough: Academic dishonesty / Cheating in ANY form will NOT be tolerated! Suspicious behavior during a test and/or evidence of cheating may result in either a grade of ?0? on that exam or taking an exam in my office that is 100% essay.
NO electronic devises of any type will be permitted while taking exams. I will provide calculators if needed.

Disruptive behavior of any sort, can result in an instructor-initiated drop. This document serves as your ?first warning? as to the result of disruptive behavior. You may or may not receive a 2nd warning before actions are taken. Disruptive behavior includes things such as cell phone usage, passing notes, talking, showing disrespect, excessive noise production or any other behavior which is considered disruptive by the instructor. In addition, getting up and leaving class during a lecture is very disruptive. Unless you have notified me in advance that you will need to leave a lecture early, or in the case of an emergency, you are expected to remain seated until you are dismissed.
Use of a laptop or tablet to take notes during lecture is permitted as long as the process doesn?t produce any sound ? (i.e. noisy keyboard). Using your laptop or tablet to access the internet during lecture is not allowed and will result in loss of your privilege of using your device for note taking.

Cell Phones
As a policy, cell phones MUST remain in your backpack, purse or pocket during class with purses & backpacks on the floor. If you are recording a lecture, your cell phone should be FACE DOWN ON THE CORNER OF YOUR DESK. OTHER THAN TO RECORD LECTURES, CELL PHONE USE DURING CLASS IS NOT ALLOWED AND IS CONSIDERED DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR. Despite what you may think, I CAN see who is using a cell phone during lecture.
*****Violations of my cell phone policy will result in a LOSS OF BONUS POINTS FROM THE NEXT EXAM.****

Attendance Policy The classrooms we will be using are somewhat small and entering lecture late is a disruption to the entire class. Thus, if you are routinely and/or excessively tardy, you will be dropped from the course. Changes in lecture schedule, changes in exam dates, etc will be announced at the beginning of the lecture. 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.

THERE ARE NO MAKE UP EXAMS OR ?RE-TAKES?! The dates for ALL EXAMS are clearly posted on the Lecture Schedule and you are expected to be in class on those days. If you miss an exam FOR ANY REASON YOU MUST EMAIL me IMMEDIATELY -- and then CHECK YOUR email for a response from me containing instructions. If you do miss an exam, DO NOT wait until the next class period to email or talk to me! If you do not complete an exam before the next class period, you will NOT be allowed to take the exam. If you do not take an exam, you will receive either a grade of ?0? for that exam or your lowest exam grade will be counted twice. Based on your excuse and your effort to contact me, I will decide which option will apply. If you are missing an exam because of a medical emergency, bring me a copy of the discharge papers from the Emergency Room/Hospital.
If you have a previously scheduled appointment, event, etc that conflicts with an exam, you MUST CONTACT ME BY EMAIL AT LEAST ONE WEEK in advance to make arrangements to take the exam EARLY. Exams will NOT be re-scheduled due to poor preparation or work for other classes.
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.
Facility Policies
  1. No food or tobacco products are allowed in the classroom.

  2. Only students enrolled in the course are allowed in the classroom, except by special instructor permission.

  3. Use of electronic devices is prohibited.
Important Information
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 the Office for Disability Services Coordinator, Room 231, in the Madison Monroe Building. The phone number is (409) 984-6241.

When you've logged in, click the email icon in the upper right-hand corner to check email, or click on the "My Courses" tab to get to your Course Homepage. Click the link to your course and review the information presented. It is important that you check your email and Course Homepage regularly. You can also access your grades, transcripts, and determine who your academic advisor is by using MyLamarPA.
Other Cell phones may ONLY be used to record lectures. If you are recording a lecture, place your phone face down on the corner of your desk. Other than this, cell phones are to remain on silent and in your backpack, pocket, or purse. Backpacks and purses should be on the floor. Cell phone use or any other disruptive behavior during class will result in a loss of bonus points on the subsequent exam.
