Lecture Textbook: Human Anatomy 3rd Ed. by Michael McKinley/Valerie Dean O’Loughlin New York: McGraw Hill © 2012
Lecture Outline/Study Guide: Purchase at CASC bookstore
COURSE DESCRIPTION – An introductory study of the gross anatomy of the human body and its systems is presented. This course includes laboratory studies of the human skeleton, models and other visual aids and dissection of selected mammalian examples with reference to man. (Note to pre-professional students: This course does not include hands-on cadaver study. It is recommended the student review the degree requirements of his/her future educational institutional program for acceptance of transfer credit)
Prerequisite: General Zoology - ZOO 1114
COURSE OUTCOMES - By the end of the course students will be able to:
Relate anatomical terminology to the organ systems of the
Identify major anatomical relationships of the combined human body systems.
Learning Objectives -
- Recognize the fundamental chemical, cytological, and histological components underlying the organization of the systems of the human body
- Relate anatomical terminology to the organ systems of the human body
- Identify major skeletal components and surface markings
- Illustrate an understanding of the organization of the muscular system
- Apply knowledge of the nervous system and its close relationship to the endocrine system
- Describe components of the cardiovascular system
- Develop an understanding of the structure and basic function of the eleven organ systems
TEACHING FORMAT – Instruction will include lecture with animated reinforcement via multimedia resources; laboratory studies of the human skeleton, models, and other visual aids (inclusive of online multimedia content); cytological and histological study; demonstration; discussion; and cadaver observation (if possible). Lecture will coincide consecutively with chapters in the textbook beginning with the first chapter. The lecture outline is provided as an instructional/learning guide due to the vast amount of material to be covered in this course. The student is expected to read each chapter prior to a lecture session.
EVALUATION TECHNIQUES- (Lecture) There will be six lecture exams (inclusive of the final exam) during the course of the semester. (Laboratory) There will be five laboratory practicals administered during the semester. There will be a laboratory review prior to each lab practical. Each lecture exam, lab practical, and lab review will be valued at 100 points each.
Lecture Exam Average 75%
Laboratory (Assignments/Practicals) 25%
(The student may present his/her completed lecture outline notebook at the end of the semester for a maximum of 1% bonus credit.
A- 90-100% B- 80-89% C- 70-79% D- 60-69% F-59% and below
(Note: A minimum of a “C” is required in all coursework for students applying to the respective allied health science programs at CASC)

Punctual and regular class attendance is expected of all students. This is considered the responsibility of the student. It is also the responsibility of the student to consult with the instructor (i.e. via phone, email, etc.) when an absence must be excused. Instructors are given the prerogative of determining the excusableness of student absences. A student is also responsible for all class work covered during his/her absence from class, even in cases in which s/he is able to satisfy the instructor that the absence was unavoidable.
Unexcused absences in excess of the number of credit hours may result in a student being advised to withdraw from the class. If a student is advised to withdraw and fails to do so, the student will receive a failing grade in the course.
The maximum number of allowed absences are as follows:
Summer semester: 1 day (equal to three lecture hours and one laboratory session)
Fall and Spring semesters: 3 days lecture and 1 laboratory session
Roll call will be taken promptly at each lecture session. Any student arriving to class late (after roll has been called) will be counted as being absent. Recorded laboratory assignments and practicals will serve as the attendance record for lab.
An Administrative Withdrawal (AW) may be assigned by the instructor or the Office of Academic Affairs to indicate that a student has been "involuntarily" withdrawn from class(es) after CASC’s Add/Drop Period for a special reason (i.e. disciplinary action, health issue, etc.). Administrative withdrawals are GPA neutral but do affect a student’s financial aid.
· Students will place cells phones, face down, on the desk. Any student caught texting during lecture or lab will be dismissed and receive an automatic "F" in this course.
· Tardiness (being late for the beginning of class) is severely frowned upon. Class officially begins at the posted time. Students are expected to arrive in class on time.
· Students are expected to read and follow the syllabus.
· Read and study each and every handout seriously. This information can and will be used and, like the information in textbooks, is subject to examination.
· Students are expected to utilize the lecture outline as instructed.
· Respect and common courtesy will be maintained at all times in the classroom.
Academic Dishonesty/ Cheating Policy - You are expected to take the examinations entirely on your own without any outside influences. Outside influences include, but not limited to, obtaining information of any kind from fellow students, obtaining information from class notes or the book, and access through any electronic devices. Students utilizing cell phones during exams will be advised to withdraw from the class! Failure to withdraw will result in a failing grade!
MAKEUP EXAMS/ASSIGNMENTS/ PRACTICALS- Absolutely no makeup lab assignments will be allowed! Makeup lecture exams or lab practicals will be accepted only at the discretion of the instructor. It is the student's responsibility to inform the instructor of the reason for a missed exam or practical. Makeup exams/practicals, if granted, will be scheduled by the instructor. No curve or bonus points will be added to makeup work. A zero will be recorded for all missed work.
Bonus Credit: A student may earn a maximum of six (6) points to be added to the final exam score by completing the bonus questions handouts. Each bonus section must be turned in on or before the day of the sectional exam.
ASSISTANCE- Check with the Learning Resource Center for available tutoring services. Numerous videos are available in the library and online.
The instructor reserves the right to modify this syllabus as deemed necessary.
Carl Albert State College complies with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. Students with disabilities who need special accommodations should make their request in the following way:
