BI 210 - Anatomy and Physiology I

Credits: (4 credits)

A complete study of the basic tissues and the skeletal, muscular, and nervous organ systems of the human. Lecture and laboratory coordinate to provide gross and micro-scopic anatomy of all systems. Uses physiological apparatus to study muscular and nervous system interactions.

Learning Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

        1.  Discuss the basic chemical and structural components of the cell;

        2. Know structure and function of the four groups of organic molecules;

        3. Explain the transport of substances through the cell membrane;

        4. Describe the basic processes of cell movement, cell synthesis, cell secretion and mitosis;

        5.  Name the tissue types, describe and identify the major characteristics and functions of each;

For the systems you will be able to do the following commensurate with the level of the text and lab manual:

        6. Discuss the role of each system in the maintenance of homeostasis

        7. Relate the major anatomical characteristics of each system to its physiological function

        8.  Describe the interdependence of the systems in maintenance of homeostasis;

        9. Predict the consequences of a system’s inability to maintain homeostasis; 

      10. Use appropriate terminology in the discussion and identification of anatomical 
structures and physiological processes of these systems; 

      11. Perform laboratory procedures and dissections related to the anatomy and physiology of these systems.
