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:

  1.    Discuss the role of each system in the maintenance of homeostasis;
  2.    Relate the major anatomical characteristics of each system to its physiological function;
  3.    Describe the interdependence of the systems in maintenance of homeostasis;
  4.    Predict the consequences of a system’s inability to maintain homeostasis; 
  5.    Use appropriate terminology in the discussion and identification of anatomical structures and physiological processes of these systems; 
  6.    Perform laboratory procedures and dissections related to the anatomy and physiology of these systems.
