Human Anatomy and Physiology I (BIO 111)

Course Memo

Anatomy & Physiology I is the first semester of a two-semester course in human anatomy and physiology. Anatomy is the study of the form of the body and physiology is the study of body function. This course begins with instruction in the terminology needed to be able to intelligently and accurately read and communicate biological concepts in an appropriate system level of the human organism. Students will also study the classification of tissues, genetics and inheritance, as well as the following systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, blood, lymphatic/immune, and reproductive. In general, the lecture portion of the class will emphasize the physiological concepts and the laboratory section will emphasize anatomy. Anatomy can be better studied and easier learned by visualization in a three dimensional manner by using anatomical aids, such as models, charts, specimens, and slides which are available in the laboratory. Pre-requisite: high school level chemistry is required
