BIO 264L - Anatomy and Physiology
BIO 264 (Lecture and Lab): Human Anatomy and Physiology I is the first part of a two-semester course that prepares students for further study in the health and medical fields. The second course is BIO 264: Human Anatomy and Physiology II. Both of these courses have a lab that is taken separately from the lecture portion of the course. Most students must take both the lecture portion and the lab portion to fulfill prerequisite requirements. This course is the lab course for BIO 264. It includes 10 modules that will help you learn anatomy for the body tissue types, the skeletal system, the muscles, the nervous system, the eyes, and the ears. Please note that this course is not acceptable for biology major credit.

This course will supply all of the reading and online study material that you will need to pass the course. There is no required textbook; however,students often report that they invest significant funds in printing the lab manual files so that they can be stored in a binder. While students are not required to do this, it is recommended that the lab manual be printed and referred to often.
Computer with Internet Access
It is your responsibility to arrange use of a computer with Internet access. (The higher speed you have for your Internet access, the easier the course will be for you to complete.)
** Online Only Students** Microphone and Earphones
You are required to have a microphone for your computer and a set of earphones that will work with your computer and the online meeting tool (Adobe Connect).
The course grade will be determined by the following graded assignments:
- Module Practice Quizzes: You may take these as many times as you want; your highest score will be recorded. Practice quizzes are worth 20 points a piece for a total of 200 points.
- Module Exams: These are closed book and on your honor. All of the module exams are fill in the blank. They are also timed (only one minute per question). Module exams are worth 25 points a piece for a total of 250 points.
- Proctored Exams: There are 4 Proctored Exams. Each Proctored Exam will cover 2 to 3 modules. The first Proctored Exam is worth 100 points, and the rest are 150 points. The Proctored Exams will be a total of 550 points.
- Extra Credit Option: Instructors will have the discretion to offer extra credit. Please be in contact with your instructor for further information.
There are 1,000 possible points in this class.
There are other forms of academic dishonesty besides cheating and plagiarism. Please read through the examples listed. This is not an all-inclusive list but is a sample of what is still considered dishonest, including sharing course quiz questions with online quiz and testing sites.
From the Student Honor Office:
Inadvertent plagiarism involves the inappropriate, but unintentional, use of anothers words, ideas, or data without proper attribution. Although not a violation of the Honor Code, it is a form of academic misconduct for which an instructor can impose appropriate academic sanctions. Examples of this are as follows:
- Continuing work on an examination or assignment after the allocated time has elapsed.
- Submitting the same work for more than one class without disclosure and approval.
- Getting equal credit on group assignments when equal work was not done.
- Using unauthorized materials during an examination or while completing an assignment.
- Collaborating on an examination or assignment without authorization.
- Obtaining or providing to another student a test or answers to a test that has not been administered.
**This course includes four proctored exams.**
Online students are required to take BIO 264L exams in I-learn using a built-in proctoring service called Proctorio. Students will not need to find their own proctor.
In Module 1, you will download the required plug-in to take the proctored exams.
Please post exam or proctoring questions on the Questions and Conversations discussion board.
- (A) 93%–100%
- (A-) 90%–92%
- (B+) 87%–89%
- (B) 83%–86%
- (B-) 80%–82%
- (C+) 77%–79%
- (C) 73%–76%
- (C-) 70%–72%
- (D+) 67%–69%
- (D) 63%–66%
- (D-) 60%–62%
- (F) Less than 60%
You should read the following course policies and make sure that you understand what these policies mean to you regarding your interactions with the instructor and other students in this course. If you have questions about any of these policies, you should contact your instructor immediately.
Since BIO 264L is a one-credit course, at the minimum, you should spend 2–3 hours a week to complete all the learning activities for each module. However, please be advised that 2–3 hours a week may not be enough for you to successfully learn everything that you need to know. So, depending on your familiarity with the material, be aware that you may need to spend more dedicated time each week to study and practice the material. It is common for students to spend upwards of 6–10 hours in order to receive an "A" or "B."
In order to keep up with the assignments and learn the most from this class, you should make sure you schedule regular time each day to study for this class. With this course, there is no "time off" for holidays that might occur during the week. Consequently, you should make sure to arrange your study schedule so that any holiday activities do not keep you from completing learning activities.
Students should not ask instructors to extend deadlines or allow makeups. However, it is understood that emergencies happen. It is the responsibility of the student to notify the instructor of such emergencies.
In this class, our interactions with each other should be guided at all times by the following principles of personal honor:
Principles of Personal Honor: "True at all Times"
- Personal honor is integrity in fulfilling commitments, responsibilities, and covenants.
- Personal honor begins with willing obedience and is fully developed when we consistently govern ourselves by true principles.
- Personal honor increases spiritual strength through the ministry of the Holy Ghost.
- Personal honor is central to every aspect of our lives, including the BYU-Idaho experience.
- Personal honor brings us joy and happiness, deepens our desire to love, serve, and lift others, and ultimately helps us to become more like the Savior.
You should make sure that you understand the above principles of personal honor. It is important for all class members to strive to follow the above principles in our associations with one another.
If you have any questions about how Personal Honor is related to academic honesty or the university's Dress and Grooming Standards, you may visit the University Standards web page to get more information.
