Anatomy & Physiology I - LAB — 3125
BIO 2510 – 0 credits
Ellen J. Lehning

This first of two sequential human anatomy and physiology courses is designed for students who have had little or no previous study of the body or the physical and chemical principles on which body structure and function is based. In this course, students will learn basic chemistry and physics, cytology, and histology. Students will study the following organ systems: integumentary, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, lymphatic, and respiratory. In the accompanying laboratory, students will learn basic terminology, microscopy, animal dissection, organ dissection, and experimental process and protocols. Prerequisite: high school chemistry, CHE 1500, or CHE 1530; Corequisite: ENG 1510; must meet minimum college level reading score: Accuplacer 80+. It is strongly recommended that students have an appropriate biology course. Master Course Syllabus
