Principles of Biology 103: Biological
Systems – Anatomy & Physiology
Course Objectives
Principles of Biology: Biological Systems: Anatomy and
Physiology is a course designed to explore and discuss the
concepts, theories, and ideas related to the anatomy and
physiology of both plants and animals. The course objectives
are to:
♦
understand the basic principles underlying the structure of plants
and animals;
♦
learn about the connection between cellular structure and
function for plants and animals;
♦
understand how history and scientific research in these areas.

Course Organization and Content
This class will consist of weekly lectures, film(s), laboratory
assignments, plus quizzes and exams. The lectures will focus on numerous
aspects associated with a systems approach to the anatomy and physiology of
plants and animals.
Background Required
Biology 103: Principles of Biology is an introductory freshman-level
course for non-science majors. Its content will depend on input from the
students during the term and an overall course theme and design that focus on
understanding plant and animal structure and function, with an emphasis on
animal physiology. The stated prerequisite for this course is Biology 102.

Teaching and Studying Philosophy
Teaching and learning is a collaborative process in this class. It involves
listening and learning from the lectures and asking questions during
lectures and labs. It requires you to be curious. The lecture is not the
sole information source to draw on for your grade.
Regurgitory Thinking/Learning - Simple memorization. The first step or basis
for
learning, but not the end result.
Applied Thinking/Learning - To take some information and apply it to a specific
question or problem. It is the next step.
Synthetic Thinking/Learning - To apply your information and think how it
applies broadly to a set of circumstances or problems. One of the highest
forms of thinking in terms of using your information and creating knowledge
for
yourself.

You are responsible for using the lecture
material to complete the chapter assignments,
laboratory exercises, and supporting material:
You need to attend every lecture, take notes, and ask questions in class.
You need to re-read your lecture notes 3 times per week.
You need to read the appropriate chapters in the book.
You need to attend every laboratory exercise and ask appropriate questions.
You need to study, answer and submit the assignments on time.
In summary, be an ACTIVE participant in this class.
Participation is important in determining your final grade. Pose
questions to me and other students. I’m interested in your thinking
skills. This is a place where ideas are shared and evaluated. It may
mean the difference in a grade.

Exams, Grading, and Communication
Your grade will be determined from quizzes, lab assignments &
attendance, and exams; again, participation in lecture and laboratory
discussions is essential and may determine your final grade. I reserve the
right to modify the assignments and points as needed during the
term.
Quizzes (as assigned @ 15 pts. ea.)

If you miss a lecture, lab, quiz or exam, TELL ME!!!!
You have the responsibility to contact me within
1 week from the time of the quiz/test to retake the quiz/test. The
makeup quiz will be more difficult than the regular quiz. There are no
early examinations/quizzes except by prior arrangements. The date of the
final examination will be announced at a later date.
Your grade in this class will be determined by the points you earn, not on the
performance of your fellow students (as hard-working as they may be). It will
be determined from a standard percentage scale of your cumulative points
earned from the assignments, exams and quizzes: (A = 100 - 90.0, B = 89.99 –
80.0, C = 79.9 – 70.0, D = 69.9 – 60.0, F = below 60% and/or missing three
[3]or more labs). I reserve the right to raise or maintain a student’s grade based
on their class participation.

Grading Assignments and Student Communication
I will return required assignments to you within 2 weeks. If you email me
with a question(s) or comment(s), I will respond to your message within
24 - 48 hours.

♦ NOTE: Some lectures are closely tied to the textbook. You are strongly
encouraged to read assigned portions of the text before lecture; the text is a
key tool for studying the material. Specific topics or examples may be
introduced in lectures that are not in the textbook, so. . . . . . . . . . . attend the
lectures and labs!

Students with Disabilities
Students with documented disabilities who may need accommodations,
who have any emergency medical information I should be aware of, or
who need special arrangements in the event of an emergency and/or
evacuation, should make an appointment with me as early as possible,
and no later than the end of the first week of the term. If you have
not accessed services and think you may need them, please contact
Disability Services @ 838 – 8250 or email ods@wou.edu Class
materials will be made available in accessible format upon request.

Peer-led Team Learning (PLTL) - Biology
Peer-led Team Learning (PLTL) is a 1-credit, pass/no credit course that is
designed for students to develop a better understanding of concepts. There
are weekly 2-hour student-led sessions who have successfully completed the
course. There is no letter grade for PLTL; leaders arrange meeting times and
take roll on a weekly basis. Attendance is mandatory. The benefits for
students include improved performance (i.e., higher grades!) in courses. If
you are interested in learning more about PLTL, ask your instructor!

The Biology Department’s Policy on
Academic Dishonesty and Laboratory Attendance
During a quiz or examination, any written or spoken interaction with other students
(even by cellular phones) will be regarded as cheating, as will the use of crib notes (i.e.
unauthorized notes brought into the exam), and looking at another student’s test
papers. The penalty for cheating/dishonesty will be a zero for the test, quiz or
assignment in question and, possibly, referral to the Student Conduct Committee for
further action. You have the right to appeal the decision to the Student Conduct
Committee.
Departmental policy dictates three (3) or more unexcused lab absences will
result in an automatic failing grade for the laboratory course. You can make-up
labs in the same week, but you must notify both your lab instructor and the instructor
of the section you will be attending.

My Policy on Student Conduct and Academic Honesty
What you learn here will prepare you for other courses and duties in your future
careers; study together as needed. Any graded materials used to assess your
performance in this class must be your own original work; the work of any other
student (past or present) may not be copied or paraphrased as your own. Plagiarism or
cheating on a test, quiz or any graded assignment - representing someone else’s work as
you own - is a serious academic offense. Any student submitting a completed test or
quiz or assignment with anything less than your own answers will be assigned “zero
points” and subject to additional class, departmental, and university penalties and
regulations. I respectfully request that students refrain from using all electronic
communication devices (cell phones, PDA’s, etc.) during lectures, labs and exams.
