BIOL& 241 - Human Anatomy and Physiology I w/Lab
First in a two-quarter sequence (241, 242). The structure and function of cells and tissues of the human body and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, sensory, and nervous systems. A course for science, nursing, and pre-professional students. Concurrent enrollment in BIOL 251 is highly recommended.
Prerequisite ENGL& 101, MATH 087, BIOL& 211, and CHEM& 121 or CHEM& 161, all with a grade of 2.0 or higher.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Demonstrate a critical and basic understanding of the nature, process, and methodology of science, especially as it relates to the study of histology and human anatomy and physiology of the integumentary, muscular, nervous, and sensory systems.
- Apply important concepts of physiology to the integumentary, muscular, nervous, and sensory systems, including homeostasis (and negative feedback), cell theory, cell-cell communications, flow down gradients, structure-function relationships and interdependence, to explain specific physiological processes.
- Apply conceptual understanding of human anatomy and physiology to explain the mechanisms of specific skin, muscular, neural, and sensory diseases, and disorders and repair processes.
- Integrate across levels of biological organization to explain particular human anatomy and physiology.
- Communicate effectively using language and understanding of human anatomy and physiology, including correctly spelling and using anatomical, chemical, and physiological terms.
- Correctly and appropriately collect and analyze data, including basic statistical testing.
- Appropriately select and properly and safely use a variety of laboratory techniques and instruments, including observation and critical examination of microscopic of mammalian cells, fibers, and tissues the basic principles of dissection of mammalian tissues and organs.
- Productively work in groups to successfully complete group activities and assignments.
- Demonstrate information literacy: determine the extent of information needed, access information legally and efficiently, evaluate sources critically, and incorporate the information effectively and ethically into scientific writing.
- Apply knowledge of anatomy and physiology to important personal, public, and global health issues.
