Human Anatomy & Physiology Mr. Craig Barron Room 409 706.485.

9971 Ext 1105 Course information: 26.0730000 Human Anatomy & Physiology %20Standards/HumanAnatomyandPhysiology-Approved2006.pdf Course Description: Human Anatomy and Physiology is a rigorous course for students interested in the human body. Students will use science skills to study the structure (anatomy) and function (physiology) of the body systems and how they interact. Student Objectives and Standards: SAP1. Students will analyze anatomical structures in relationship to their physiological functions. SAP2. Students will analyze the interdependence of the integumentary, skeletal, and muscular systems as these relate to the protection, support and movement of the human body. SAP3. Students will assess the integration and coordination of body functions and their dependence on the endocrine and nervous systems to regulate physiological activities. SAP4. Students will analyze the physical, chemical, and biological properties of process systems as these relate to transportation, absorption and excretion, including the cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, excretory and immune systems. SAP5. Students will analyze the role of the reproductive system as it pertains to the growth and development of humans. Major Concepts and Skills: Organization of the Human Body and Homeostasis Cellular and Tissue Structure/Functions Structures/functions Integumentary Structures/Functions Structures/Functions Skeletal Structures/Functions Muscular Structure/Functions Responses Nervous System Organization Digestive Structure/Functions Reproductive Structures/Functions Embryo Grading scale: The following grade equivalences are used distribution for all classes school wide: department: 90-100 equals A 80-89 equals B Sensory Structures/Functions Endocrine Cardiovascular Blood Composition/Function Lymphatic and Immune Respiratory Structure/Function Urinary Structure/Functions Developmental and Growth of Gradable Content: The following grading is utilized in the Science Classwork = 10%

Course and Instructor Policies: Always come to class prepared with book, notebook, writing utensils Follow all school rules listed in Student Handbook. Students are accountable for your own work and grades. Keep all work in a notebook NO food/gum/drinks allowed in classroom/laboratory. Bottled water allowed all days except laboratory days. Laboratory areas should be kept clean and left clean. Any materials used in lab should be cleaned and put away unless specified by teacher. Lab wastes should be disposed of according to teacher direction. In order to be successful in this class, students should read the material at home before it is discussed in class. Material should also be reviewed every night so that questions and concerns may be discussed the next day. Students should ask questions whenever they feel the need. Instructional focus (IF) periods are schedules into each day in order to offer students extra remediation opportunities. The Science department also offers after-school tutorials from 3:00 pm 4:00 pm. Additional tutorials will occasionally be held throughout the semester, and they can also be scheduled request via the student, or parent/guardian Turn all assignments in on time. If assignments are not turned in, a zero will be placed in the grade-book until completed by the student. Late work is subject to grade penalties for tardiness.

Final Exam-December Stay Connected: There are numerous ways for students and parents/guardians to stay in touch about their grades and what is occurring in the class. Using the main school website, parents/guardians may log on to the parent portal to stay current on student progress. Of course sending an email using the address provided on the syllabus is an excellent way to stay in contact with the teacher, which will be answered promptly. I am currently developing a webpage site using that may be used to find information about the class. The webpage should be online no later that September 1st and will be updated every 1-2 weeks.
