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.

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 (6 points)

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

Course Policies
Instructor Policies It is imperative that you check your email 4-5 times per week. Please check your spam or trash folder regularly.

All exams will be given online. It is NOT possible to take exams on a cell phone. 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 #1-#4 will be re-opened for 1 day after their availability period ends, but a time penalty (20% time reduction) will be assessed. 

The Final Exam (Exam 5) must be taken before it ends at 11:59 pm on August 13, 2023. 

Exams not taken will receive a grade of 0. No grades are dropped.
Attendance Policy 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).


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 not completed by the end of the availability date will receive a grade of "0" zero.

If you miss an exam because of an excused absence, your lowest lecture 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), and you must take the final exam. Poor preparation, vacation, or conflict with other scheduled exams is not a valid excuse for missing an exam.
