Other Information about the Course
This Hybrid course is designed to give students the personal scheduling advantages inherent in the Hybrid format but still have weekly face-to-face in the classroom interactions. Class time will be devoted to some or all of the following activities: laboratory exercises, summarizing and reviewing the class material for that week and exam review sessions. Students need to have access to a computer and the internet either at home or on campus. Canvas, the Course Management site, is an integral part of the course and students will find assignments, lecture outlines, slides, study aids and sample exams posted on the course site.
The text book is Anatomy & Physiology: The unity of form and function. 6th edition by Saladin. McGraw Hill publisher, includes access code to premium Connect. Connect is a stand-alone web site and it is Required for this course. It contains graded quizzes for the course. The Laboratory Manual is by Wood, for Bio 182. You will also need a dissection kit. All of these are at the campus Book Store.
If you have a valid Connect access code from the Fall or Summer of 2013, it is still good.
