HONORS HUMAN ANATOMY
Ms. Jayme Simlin
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a laboratory-based course that investigates the structure and function of the human body. Topics covered will include the basic organization of the body; biochemical composition; and major body systems along with the impact of diseases on certain systems. Students will engage in many topics and competencies related to truly understanding the structure and function of the human body. Working from the topics of basic anatomical terminology to the biochemical composition of the human body, all the way into great detail of each of the major systems of the body, students will learn through reading materials, study guides, unit worksheets, group work, projects, and labs. High levels of achievement will be in effect. Students will be responsible for proper use of lab equipment, lab reports, and projects assigned throughout each unit. One of the goals of this course is to prepare students with the skills necessary to be successful in future science classes in college.
- Students will be able to describe how the human body is studied including the use of specific terminology.
- Students will be able to identify the levels of study in this field and demonstrate knowledge of how they relate to each other.
- Students will understand the functions of each organ system and how structure related to function.
- Students will develop the skills of scientific inquiry while learning concepts in the classroom, lab, and field.
- Students will understand how biological and social concepts related to the content apply to their everyday lives and develop an increased knowledge of these concepts.
Mondays and Wednesdays 3:00-3:30—I will stay longer if you show up between 3:00-3:30 and need more time Other times available upon request absolutely NO Tuesdays or Thursdays
**3 RING FOLDER WITH POCKETS/ NOTETAKING**
Students must keep an organized folder for each System discussed (ie) Respiratory System, Cardiac System etc. Note taking is still the primary means of sorting, organizing, and processing important material and an important tool in medicine. Therefore, you will be introduced to my own personal style of note taking I used while in college. You will need to have access to a printer where you can print off any necessary power point slides and you will also need to have plain white computer paper in case the lecture is “Draw it To Learn it” based. Lessons on how to put the folders together will be presented during the first week of school. Please be advised now that my classroom will be mainly flipped so most of my lectures will be online and no longer than 15 minutes each. You can gain access to these lectures at the class website www.schoology.com the access code is ______________________ for your class. You will need this code to log on.

BYOD (Bring your own Device):
Understanding that in order to compete in an increasingly technological society, students should be permitted to use the newest electronic devices that allow them to increase learning, the teachers of this course strongly support the initiative to allow students to bring electronic devices into the classroom. Our course is flipped so you will need to have access to a device where you can watch the lectures. All electronic devices except gaming devices will be allowed for personal use. Students however are not obliged to use them in class. Grades are not based on whether or not technology was used. If students use devices they should abide by the classroom expectations about proper use of these learning tools. See these expectations at the end of this syllabus.
Plain white computer paper for Class Notes (8)3 ring pocketed folders
Pencils/Pens (1) Boxes of Tissue

Classroom Rules/Expectations are the same as on the schools website
If you miss a class, check the class website page (to be announced), as soon as you return to school. You are responsible for copying any notes that were taken in class during your absence from a classmate. In the event you are absent for an exam, you are responsible for rescheduling a makeup exam the day you return to school before or after class.
