Welcome to BIOL 182 HU1! I look forward to working with you online and weekly, Tuesdays from 9:00-10:55 on the Upper Bucks campus. Please note that this course starts (1/22) when the Bucks Spring semester starts. You must COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING 2 ASSIGNMENTS *** BEFORE ***we meet face-to-face the first time on Tuesday, January 28th. (1) Course Orientation and Orientation Quiz (to find this orientation and quiz, go to our course space in CANVAS. The link for the orientation and the quiz are in the first module). (2) McGraw Hill Connect Homework #1: The Brain (To complete this you will need to log on to the textbook Connect Plus course space).
Please note that while weekly homework and quizzes will be completed at home online and some exams will be given during class, 2 proctored exams (including 1 cumulative final) must be taken at a campus testing center.
The following class texts / materials are required:
• Anatomy & Physiology: The Unity of Form and Function by Saladin (6th ed.), and a Connect Plus access code. The BCCC Bookstore provides two textbook options, each with Connect Plus, one unbound and one bound/hardback.
• Laboratory Manual for Anatomy and Physiology by Wood. The text should say for BIOL 182. This is a custom edition for Bucks County Community College and can be purchased at the college bookstore. You will also need online access to Pearson’s masteringaandp.com. Codes for this come with your lab book, so please make sure to keep any cards that come with your lab book.
• Dissecting kit (Kits are available in the bookstore. Groups of 2-3 students may share a dissection kit).
