2014 COURSE SYLLABUS
Summer Undergraduate Human Anatomy and Physiology (19-20) is an interdisciplinary, eight week course offered by the faculty of the Department of Neurological Sciences. This course is specifically designed for students majoring in the health professions who need to obtain a general understanding of human biology. The course format involves didactic lectures presented four days per week, as well as an online laboratory component. ANPS 20 is the second half of this sequence. Special note: The final exam for ANPS 20 will be held on Friday, July 11, 2014 at 9:00 am. B. Course Objectives: 1. To provide a common anatomical and physiological language for communication within the health profession. 2. To provide basic information about the microscopic and submicroscopic structure of organs and tissues of the human body. 3. To develop knowledge of the topographic anatomy of the human body by study of the relationships of the organ systems and their surface projections 4. To understand key physiologic principles which pertain to specific organ function. C. Resources: 1. Lectures: All lectures will be presented in Stafford 101 from 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. The lectures provide a discussion of the essential material to be covered. An electronic copy of lecture handouts will be made available through Blackboard, and a black & white photocopy of the lecture powerpoint slides will also be available as a handout in lecture. Students are responsible for information presented in lecture, appearing in the lecture notes, or assigned by a lecturer. The corresponding lecture notes should be reviewed prior to lecture. 2. Textbook: “Anatomy & Physiology, An Integrative Approach” 1st Edition, 2013© McKinley/O'Loughlin/Bidle (McGraw-Hill) will be used for both ANPS courses this summer (ANPS19: 5/19-6/13/14 , ANPS20: 6/16–7/11/14). Individual lecturers will provide a list of appropriate pages in the textbook so that students may read those areas of the textbook in preparation for lectures. The textbook is not a required purchase for the course (see end of syllabus for purchasing options), but is highly recommended. 3. Online component (laboratory assignments): Both ANPS19 and ANPS20 will contain a required online laboratory component comprising the fourth credit of this course. Laboratory experiments, exercises, quizzes, and self-study materials will be accessible through ConnectPlus® Anatomy & Physiology. Please make sure you purchase Connect, as this will be a required and graded component of the course. You will need a personal access code to access the laboratory virtual experiments and exercises that are required to pass the course. This
access code is included in both textbook package options offered for this course at the UVM bookstore - you will find it shrink wrapped with the book. Instructions to log into Connect are included at the end of this syllabus. 4. Blackboard: This course maintains a web site on the University system.

All laboratories will be based on the material given in the lectures the same week and you must complete these lab
assignments before the exam for each block in order to receive credit. A minimum of 75% correct answers in the post-lab quiz will be required each time in order to pass each laboratory. You will have two attempts maximum to complete and pass each lab assignment; only the attempt with the highest score will be considered towards your final grade. - Laboratory Exams. Four short non-cumulative laboratory exams will accompany each of the lecture exams (see lecture exam section for dates). The laboratory exams may contain multiplechoice, labeling, and matching questions corresponding to the material given in lab assignments for each section. Completion of the weekly laboratory exercises and quizzes will ensure your success in these exams. 3. Grading Policy: Your final course grade will be based on the four, equally-weighted, exams given during the semester plus the laboratory evaluation.
Lectures (80%) Laboratory (20%) Lecture Exams 1-4 Laboratory Exams (4) Laboratory Assignments 20% each 8% (2% each) 12% (1% each)
Questions about your exam grade should be directed to the Course Director. Students will be granted one week post-exam to schedule a review session regarding the exam; after that time, requests for exams to be reviewed or re-graded will not be granted. Exams will not be scaled, and no extra credit options will be offered to improve your course grade at the end of the semester. Letter grades are assigned and reported to the Registrar’s office as follows: A+ 97-100% A 93-96% A90-92% -----------------------------------------B+ 87-89% B 83-86% B80-82% -----------------------------------------C+ 77-79% C 73-76% C70-72% -----------------------------------------D+ 67-69% D 63-66% D60-62% -----------------------------------------F below 60% -----------------------------------------4. Missing an Exam or lab assignment submission: Make-ups for missed lecture exams will be made available only to the student who proves with documentation that s/he is unable to attend scheduled exams AND has a legitimate reason for
rescheduling an exam. Severe illness requiring students to be away from school and family tragedies are all qualifying reasons for rescheduling an exam. Vacation plans, minor illness, work schedule conflicts and social functions are not qualifying reasons for rescheduling an exam. Students should contact the Course Director prior to the date if they will need to reschedule an exam. Students with sudden emergencies will need to document the reason for an absence. You will have two attempts maximum to complete and pass each lab assignment. The attempt with the highest score will be considered. Extensions for submission of lab assignments will be granted following the same rules described for scheduling make-up exams above. E. Faculty: 1.

F. Help: Help can be obtained in a variety of ways. Please avail yourself of any combination that works for you. Please, don't fall behind. Students who wait until the last moment to study invariably do poorly in the course. The Course Director and Lecturers are here to help. They are your primary point of contact should you have questions regarding the course material. Get your questions answered promptly by the lecturer before or after lecture, by making an appointment with the lecturer, or attending any scheduled Q & A session. Contact them directly to schedule time to meet; please understand that all of your lecturers have other teaching commitments during the school year, and meeting individually with students in a large class is not always possible, especially close to an exam. Question & Answer sessions will be offered prior to exams to give students an opportunity to ask questions. The schedule for any Q & A sessions will be announced in lecture and posted on Blackboard.

If you have the access code from one of the packages offered in the bookstore, you can enter this on the left hand side to redeem this. This can only be redeemed once and must be the code for the required book we are using.
Why is Connect Important? You are required to submit graded assignments through Connect Connect provides feedback on your scores and helps you learn to solve the assignments Connect includes an integrated e-Book (the e-book is available with the CONNECTPlus version which is a part of all packages in the bookstore) and additional student study tools. Please take a look at your LIBRARY tab when you are within CONNECT and you will have access to a variety of different resources to study from such as: LearnSmart©, Anatomy & Physiology Revealed© (APR), Physiology Interactive Lab Simulations© (Ph.I.L.S) or MediaPhys©. Explanation on what to expect from each of this programs will be provided the first day of class. If you have not bought the book/package yet and are not sure if you will remain in this course, you can still register with CONNECT to do our first assignment by selecting the free trial option. Click to register, then enter your email address and select the Free Trial option.
Purchasing Options for needed material for the course (both ANPS19 and 20 – if you are enrolled in both 19 & 20, you will only need to purchase one time)
What to buy: The campus bookstore will have all the materials you need for the course, but here is some information to clarify what you need. 1. Textbook packages: The textbook "Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach". McKinley et al., 1st Ed. (McGraw-Hill) packages available at the bookstore will be used for both ANPS19 (May 19 – June 16) and ANPS20 (June 16 – July 11). This summer you have two options to choose from (buy either package #1 or package #2), all of them including the access code for the online material supplement required in the course. You will need this supplement to access the laboratory virtual experiments and exercises required to pass the course as well as numerous optional self-study resources with excellent exercises, animations, and self-diagnostic tools to help you understand and retain material given in lectures to prepare exams.
1.1. Package #1 Hardcover text bundle: ISBN: 9780077927042 Format: Hard Bound Book Multimedia Package Estimated price (subject to change): ~$210 This product contains: – "Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach". McKinley et al., 1st Ed. (hardcover, e-book included) – Connect Plus/LearnSmart 2 Semester Online Access Card – APR Online Access – PhILS Online Access This textbook package includes a hardcover copy of the text "Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach". McKinley et al., 1st Ed. (hardcover, e-book included) and the access code for the required online laboratory component (Connect Plus®). The bookstore has a limited number of text packages available. If you buy a copy elsewhere (ie: a friend or somewhere online), you would have to get a new personal access code for ConnectPlus directly from the publisher (McGraw-Hill) (See special note below). Through ConnectPlus you will be able to access “LearnSmart”, APR, and PhiLs, all required programs that will greatly help you in this course. This is the option recommended for those students that anticipate using the book as a reference source in their future career, given the more durable format. For those who would like to save money and acquire the same material: 1.2. Package #2 Loose leaf text bundle: ISBN: 9781259137914
Format: Loose-leaf Book Multimedia Package Estimated price (subject to change): ~$130 This product contains: – "Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach". McKinley et al., 1st Ed (loose-leaf, e-book included) – Connect Plus/LearnSmart 2 Semester Online Access Card – APR Online Access – PhILS Online Access This is an alternate version of the text available directly from the co mpany, with the same textbook, but in a “looseleaf” format. This is the entire book "Anatomy & Physiology: An Integrative Approach". McKinley et al., 1st Ed (e-book included) in unbound, 3-hole punch version, along with the ConnectPlus access you will need. The downside is that the bookstore won’t buy it back at the end of the year. The upside, and why is highly recommended, is that is considerably cheaper (~$70 less) and portable, as you can store the “book” in a 3 -ring binder, and remove and carry around campus only the one or two chapters we’re working with in class at the time. However, if you are headed into a career where you will want the text handy, as a reference, this would not be a good choice, but if you are just trying to get through ANPS this year, it gets you the resources at almost half the price of the hard cover package.
Special Note: this final option is NOT available at the bookstore, but you may choose to purchase on your own.
For students who already have the textbook & need to purchase access to the online lab component: No text, Regular Connect: (no textbook or e-book included) with this package, only required online access to lab component and study online resources) ISBN: 9780077281939 Format: online access code card, no textbook Estimated price (subject to change): ~$62 This product contains: – (no textbook or e-book included) with this package, only required online access to lab component and study online resources) – Connect/LearnSmart 2 Semester Online Access Card (no e-book) – APR Online Access – PhILS Online Access This option is NOT available in the bookstore, but can be purchased on your own. If you are not interested in getting a new textbook for the course, either because you already have one or you prefer to use the library If you are unsure you will remain in this course, you can also select the free trial option at the right hand side of the registration page. With the free trial option you also will be given access to the e-book version so you can see if you would prefer to buy the e-book version to the hardcopy. The e-book in Connect is fully printable and searchable as well as you can annotate the e-book (and print out a study page with your annotations), as well as you can highlight, as well view helpful study tools as you read the e-book online.
