Specific emphasiswill be placed on the study of the tissues of the body, the musculo-skeletal and the nervous systems, and how growth,development, and aging, affect them. This course (BIO 141; 142) integrates concepts of chemistry, physics, and pathology. PURPOSE This course (BIO 141; 142) is designed for students who are preparing for careers in the Nursing; Allied Health; & HumanMovement Professions; et al. The content of this course will help prepare students to meet the stringent competencies necessaryfor these careers listed above. Prerequisites: ENG 01, ENG 05 if required by individual student's placement; high school biology and MTH 03; or equivalent,and bio 101 or its equivalent Co-requisite: BIO 141-L --- Anatomy and Physiology Laboratory.

McGraw-Hill. 8 th or 7 th edition.. STUDENTS ENROLLED IN BIO 141 MUST PURCHASE A CAT THROUGH THE COLLEGE BOOKSTOREWITHIN THE FIRST WEEK OF THE SEMESTER!LEARNING EXPERIENCES & INSTRUCTIONAL METHODS  Students will attend and participate in the course lectures. Lectures will be presented on selected topics. Theinstructor will not lecture on every topic in the course outline. Students will be required to complete readingassignments and complete worksheets provided by the instructor. The students are encouraged to participate inthe lecture discussions developed by the instructor. Color slides, transparencies, charts models,demonstrations, films, videos, computer software, and blackboard illustrations may be utilized during thelecture. Student will attend and participate in the lab sessions. Lab exercises are designed to compliment the lectures.Students individually and in small groups will complete anatomical and physiological lab exercises. Exercisesinclude the identification of structures on charts, models or lab specimens and the completion of organizedexperiments involving data collection , data analysis and the preparation of a formal laboratory report.Students will become A.D.A.M. users on the computer, utilizing selected exercises on the computer toinvestigate human form and function. Students are encouraged to read selected scientific papers supporting lecture and lab topics, and to attend“outside” lectures and seminars that are relevant to course topics. The students are required to use the reference material in the LRC. Literature, AV material, computer softwareand the internet & Bb are made available to the students in the LRC.1   Unit outlines are shared with the students. Tests are returned to students for their review. Correct answers of test questions are shared with the students.In this class, the students must attend class. See attendance in the evaluation summary below. Students whomiss class are responsible for the material covered in lab or lecture. Few alternatives are available to studentswho miss class. They may attend another lecture or lab or get notes from another student, if possible. Missingclass may mean missing a quiz or major test and this will impact your grade (see evaluation below). If youarrive late or are absent, you will not be allowed to take the quiz. According to state policy, the student is limited to two enrollments in any course. According to VCCS policy,only persons enrolled in the course are permitted to attend the lecture or the lab (NO CHILDREN AREALLOWED IN THE LECTURE OR THE LAB AT ANY TIME). Cell phones MUST be out of sight andturned off in class and NO EATING OR DRINKING IS ALLOWED IN THE LECTURE OR LAB. “Students with disabilities who will be taking this course and may need disability-related classroomaccommodations are encouraged to make an appointment to see me as soon as possible. Also, you areencouraged to stop by the office of Services for Students with disabilities to register for support services, if you have not already done so.** MAJOR OBJECTIVES & SPECIFIC STUDENT COMPETENCIES: 141 At the completion of this course the student will be able to:1.Describe the structures of the human body using anatomical terminology.2.Explain the significance of homeostasis and system integration.3.Demonstrate an understanding of the basis chemical concepts critical to study the form and function of human organsystems.4. Demonstrate an understanding of cell structure and functions of specific organelles.5. Identify tissue types and explain their structure and function.6. Discuss the structure and function of the integumentary system.7. Identify the classes of joints and give specific examples of each. 8. Identify the bones and muscles of the axial and appendicular skeleton and demonstrate their functions.9. Describe the musculo-skeletal system development and growth, and changes that occur due to aging. 10. Describe the organization of the   nervous system, its functional cell types , the nature of the nerve impulse & synapse.11.Demonstrate an understanding of components of the CNS, PNS and ANS and their functions. 2  SPECIFIC STUDENT COMPETENCIES: 142 At the completion of this course the student SHOULD be able to:1.Identify and compare the components, processes and functions of the principal sensory and motor pathways.2.Identify the structure and function of the cranial nerves and the sensory function of the nervous system as well as, their effect on coordination and exercise.3.Compare and contrast the structures, functions, and neurotransmitters of the sympathetic and parasympathetic divisions of the ANS.4.Identify, compare, and contrast the structures and functions for the general and special senses.5.Discuss the functional-structural relationships between the endocrine system and other body systems.6.Explain the significance of hormonal balance and system integration, with respect to growth and development, and aging.7.Successfully explain the structure and function of the cardiovascular system, to include the heart, the circulatory system,and the blood/lymphatic as well as the effect aging has on each component.8.Identify and describe the structures and functions of the upper and lower respiratory tracts.9. Identify and describe the basic physical principles governing respiratory physiology and the control of respiration.10.Discuss the structure and function of the digestive system, with emphasis on the regulation of body composition, diet andnutrition for the developing human.11.Identify the components of the urinary system, and explain how the urinary system interacts with other body systems tomaintain homeostasis in body fluids.12.Identify the primary and secondary reproductive organs and describe the functions of each.

The test may include multiple choice , fill-in-the-blanks, true or false, and short essay questions. Unit test will be announced one week in advance.THERE ARE NO MAKEUP TEST IN LECTURE OR LAB. The lowest Unit test grade may be dropped andreplaced with the final exam grade (if the final exam grade is higher). Out of class AMOIs will be assigned,collected and graded. Assignments turned in late will be penalized a letter grade (10%) for each day late. If your class meets M,W and a paper is due on M and turned in on Thursday then it is 3 days late. If your classmeets on T,R and the paper is due R and is turned in on M then it is 4 days late. Quizzes (taken from thelecture notes) will be given in lecture weekly and will be averaged for a grade that counts as a unit test (SEEESSENTIALS FOR A&P). Selected readings may be placed in the LRC on reserve, on the instructors door, or on the instructor’s web site( Bonus questions on unit test may be developed from these readings.Weekly test are given on selected exercises in the lab. Also, practical test are given on selected lab activities(musculature, skeleton and cat and organ dissection). If a student misses a lab, it is his/her responsibility to4
