       Through the Core Curriculum, students will gain a foundation of knowledge of          human cultures and the physical and natural world; develop principles of

          personal and social responsibility for living in a diverse world; and advance

          intellectual and practical skills that are essential for all learning.                                     *Core Objectives stressed in Life Sciences.

                   *Critical Thinking Skills

                   *Communication Skills

                   *Empirical and Quantitative Skills

                   *Teamwork

                     Social Responsibility

                     Personal Responsibility

 

VII.  COURSE OBJECTIVES : Biology 2401 is designed to instruct students in   methods that will result in a student who is able to:

  1. Describe the structure and function of the tissues of the human body. 2. Describe the structure and function of the integumentary system.
  2. Describe the structure and function of the skeletal system.
  3. Describe the structure and function of the muscular system.
  4. Describe the structure and function of the nervous system.

         

 

In order to evaluate the progress in achieving the course objectives, each student will respond on written exams to questions in the following areas:

 

          - List the structural and functional characteristics used to classify tissues

            into one of the four major tissue types.

          - Define homeostasis and explain the role of each tissue type in homeostasis.

          - List and describe the two layers of the dermis.

          - Describe the structure and function of the subcutaneous.

          - Explain the role of the integument system in homeostasis.

          - List the major tissue components of tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone.

          - Describe the growth of bone tissue.

          - Identify all bones in the human skeleton.

          - Describe the events that produce a membrane potential.

          - Describe the events within muscle cells that result in muscle contraction.

          - List the cellular structure of the three types of muscle cells.

          - List the structural and positional characteristics used to classify muscles.

          - List the divisions of the nervous system.

          - Describe the structure of neurons.

          - Explain the function of neuralgia cells.

          - Describe the events involved in the transmission of the electrochemical

            message through the nervous system.

          - List the structural components of the brain and spinal cord.

          - Distinguish between the function of white matter and gray matter.

            each.           

          - Describe the origin, circulation and function of the cerebrospinal fluid.

          - Describe the location and arrangement of the cranial and spinal nerves

            within the body.

          - Distinguish between the somatic and autonomic nervous systems and list

            the functions of each.

          - Distinguish between the parasympathetic and sympathetic nervous systems

            and list the primary function of each.

          - Describe sense organs as transducers.

VIII. COURSE CALENDAR  (see attachments)

 

  1. COURSE / CLASSROOM POLICIES

          Regular and punctual attendance in all classes and labs is considered

          essential for optimum academic success.  If the student has the equivalence

          of three weeks of unofficial absences... the instructor may drop the student

          from the course with a grade of F (Ranger College General Catalog).

          Students are expected to be seated by the beginning of the lecture

          period. Excessive tardies (6) may be considered as absences. Excessive

          unexcused absences (6) may result in a grade of I (incomplete) and may

          result in dismissal from the course with a grade of F. 

          It is your responsibility to inform the instructor of an excused absence.  An absence is excused if you are excused by the Dean to participate in an authorized College activity.  Any student who is disruptive to the class will be dismissed from the class   and may be dismissed from the course. Any student found with          unauthorized notes (cheat sheets, electronic devices, etc.) during an exam or copying from another student's exam will be subject to disciplinary action. Any student misconduct will be reported to the Dean of Student Services.

          No tobacco use is permitted in the science building.       

 

          ADA Statement:  Ranger College provides a variety of services for students

          with learning and/or physical disabilities.  The student is responsible for

          making the initial contact with the Ranger College Counselor.  It is

          advisable to make this contact before or immediately after the semester

          begins.

 

  1. ASSESSMENT (Grading Procedure)

         

Exams will consist primarily of fill-in-the-blank and short answer questions and will cover all material discussed since the last exam (except the final which is cumulative). Each question will be graded as correct or incorrect in accordance         with information in the text and lectures. Exam grades will be taken as the number of points correct.

Students missing lectures are responsible for getting notes (notes are available on the Ranger College web page via Blackboard). Make-up exams, for exams missed due to an excused absence, will be given later in the semester. Bonus points may be available for students taking the exam at the assigned time, but not for makeup exams. Students are strongly urged to not miss exams.

          The course grade will be computed as follows:

                         Average of 6 lecture exams     =   3/4

                         Lab average                              =   1/4

                                      Total                =  Course Grade

 

          (average of lecture exams x 3)    +    lab average

          _________________________________________    =   Course Grade

                                             4

 

             Letter grades will be assigned as follows:

               90-100 = A,    80-89 = B,    70-79 =  C,    60-69 = D,    below 60 = F

 

  1. ADMISSIONS, EMPLOYMENT, AND PROGRAM POLICIES OF 

           RANGER COLLEGE ARE NONDISCRIMINATORY IN REGARD TO 

           RACE, CREED, COLOR, SEX, AGE, DISABILITY, AND NATIONAL

           ORIGIN.
