Welcome to Anatomy and Physiology! 


Thursday, 8 am:  Students may come early to begin the essay portion of the exam.  No notecard is allowed during the essay portion.

Thursday, 8:30 am:  Regular exam time begins.  Students will begin the exam with the essay portion.  Once the essay portion is completed and turned in, students may then get out their notecard and begin the multiple choice/matching portion of the exam.

NOTECARD Correction:  Students may put ANY info on one side of a 3 in x 5 in notecard that will help them on the multiple choice/matching portion of the exam.  Since the essay portion is first and notecards aren’t allowed during it, it won’t matter if essay info is on the card.  Again, the notecard will only be used during the multiple choice/matching portion of the exam so put whatever info you need on it. YOU MAY ONLY USE ONE SIDE OF THE NOTECARD!

If you have any questions, please call or text me.

12/6–In class–students watched the video then dissected the sheep’s heart.

Hwk–write summary of video to turn in next week, finish any coloring pages, study for exam


11/29–in class, students took their Quiz 7B home due to lack of time in class, turned in work from the break and then we covered 1/2 of Mod 8 (only the part on the brain, we stopped before we started the Spinal Cord). Hwk is to follow the agenda.

11/15–check email b/c I attached Quiz 7A to class update email.

Classwork you should complete at home:  finish Mod 7, study diagrams.  Make sure you can label the diagram of the action potential.
Hwk for next two weeks:  follow the agenda, study for both quizzes.

11/8–In class–students turned in their lab book and coloring pages that were due.  Then, they took their muscle quiz.  After that, they performed an external dissection of a frog.  No lab report due.

Hwk:  finish module 7, OYO’s and SG’s, study for quiz next week (parts of neuron and everything in module up to but not including how action potentials work) so we are following the agenda for 11/8 for the hwk.
Muscle Quiz Make Up–if you have a strong feeling that you did not do well on the quiz today, you can take a make up quiz next Thursday morning at 8 am in D204.  I need to know if you plan to retest so that we have enough quizzes printed in time.  This is the only retest I am offering.  You will again have a word bank.


10/25–Today in class, we went over notes for the first half of Mod 7 and watched some short video segments to help understand the concepts.  I am attaching the PPT from today which has the video links in it.  Hwk is to follow the agenda.

Remember, next two weeks of classes have been switched.  We will take the muscle quiz and dissect the frog in 2 weeks so next week we will cover more of Mod 7.  Make sure you read Exp 7.1 before next week.
10/18–In class: students were split into two groups for lab and lecture.  In lab, we went over all of Mod 6 and the muscles that must be memorized.  In lab, students performed exp 5.1 and took quiz 5A.  Hwk is to follow the agenda.
10/11–In class–we finished mod 5 in class and handed out the muscle coloring sheets.  Hwk is to follow the agenda.  Make sure that you start thinking about your sarcomere design which is due 10/25.  It can be edible or not edible, mechanical, etc.  If you figure out how to make it contact, bonus points!

9/27–In class–we went over the remainder of the notes for Mod 4, I emailed the PPT during class b/c several people said they did not receive it the first time I sent it last week, we reviewed for the exam next week, took pix for Jersey Day and then completed our Bone Lab Quiz.

Hwk–follow the agenda, study for exam, Honors students should make sure to complete their coloring pages and have it ready to turn in next week. Also, Honors students should make sure they are working on fulfilling their honors requirements.
In class–we split up for lab/lecture again today.  In lab, students looked at bone marrow and bone under the microscope.  They also turned in hwk and took their quiz.  In lecture, we began Mod 4 and covered everything up to homeostasis.  Hwk is to follow the agenda.  Mod 1 – 4 exam is in 2 weeks so students should be studying for that.  Know all terminology, all lists with examples (ie list of types of epithelial tissue and and example of each, list of 4 types of tissues and example, etc), all the bones, study PPT’s and notes from class and all quizzes.  Next week is the bone lab test.  Students should bring their sticky notes with the bones written on them–see below for the bones to know.

Bonus for next week–Next Thursday is JERSEY DAY at Tutorial.  If every student in the class wears a jersey (either an authentic jersey worn in a sporting event OR a replica jersey of a jersey worn during a sporting event–No tshirts), then the whole class will receive 5 bonus points that will be added to their Mod 1- 4 Exam grade. This is an All-or-Nothing bonus opportunity.  If you do not own an athletic jersey, borrow one for class.  I know several students are bringing extra just in case someone needs to borrow one.  Again, tshirts with team logos do not count.  Must be a game jersey.

In class–we finished Mod 3 in class and went over all of the bones that students are to memorize for the bone quiz.  Students are to get a package of sticky notes and write the name of one bone per note sheet and bring the set to class for the quiz.  Failure to not bring the notes on test day (see the agenda) will result in a 0 test grade.  You should also know the bones around the eye socket for module quiz or unit test, but we won’t do those for the bone lab test.   Hwk is to follow the agenda and work on the coloring sheets.
Bones to Know For Bone Lab Test:
cervical vertebrae
thoracic vertebrae
lumbar vertebrae
proximal phalange (finger and toe)
distal phalange (finger and toe)
medial phalange (finger and toe)
true ribs
false ribs
floating ribs
sternum-xiphoid process
Coxa (you don’t have to sticky note the parts of the coxa ie ishium, pubis, etc but should know those parts for other quizzes or tests)
If I have forgotten one, let me know.

9/6-Today was a full day.  Students were split into two groups–lab and lecture.  In lab, they completed 3.1 and 3.2 and took their quiz. In lecture, we went over about 1/2 of Mod 3 (integumentary system) and watched a video clip about albinism.  Hwk is to follow the agenda–you have 2 weeks to do your summary over the videos/article I emailed today.  You will need to do a little more research into what albinism is but that should not take you long.  Every student has been added to the email list that gave me an alternate contact–if you are not getting the emails, please check your spam or junk folders.  Parents, please continue to follow up with your student.

8/30–In class–lecture and notes over the remainder of Mod 2.

Lab–performed microscope lab and took Quiz 2A.
How to write lab conclusion/discussion/summary:
  • restate purpose
  • state slides looked at, magnification, what was seen in the slide(s)
  • list any problems ie what you could not find, problems with microscope, etc
Hwk–follow the agenda.  Study for Quiz 2B over the PPT and reading from module.


Today was a good day! It was our first day to split up for lab and lecture.  In class, students performed Exp 2.1, took quiz 1B, turned in several assignments, and took notes over 1/2 of Mod 2. Hwk is to follow the agenda.
Back-to-School get together is this Sunday at Ms Lezlie’s pool.  See email.

8/16 In Class:  we went over the honors option, reviewed for the quiz, took Quiz 1A, finished the module and performed a protein synthesis “lab”.  Hwk is to follow the agenda–there is no lab report for the inclass lab.  Study for the quiz over the rest of the notes and PPT.

8/9     In class:  Today was a great first day!  Very busy.  We went over class structure, Tutorial dress code, homework, microscopy and began Mod 1.  Hwk is to follow the agenda and study for Quiz 1 next week over p 1 – 17 and the notes from today.  I will email the PPT to parents today so make sure you get it from them and study the slides thru Protein Synthesis. Know the 11 organ systems and functions, levels of organization (atom to organism), organelles and their functions, terminology ie anatomy, physiology, tissue definitions and examples, homeostasis…

If you didn’t bring in your class supplies or signed paperwork, be sure to do that next week, too.

Coloring Page Correlation, Update 7/18

Agenda Fall 18

Honors Letter

Honors Requirements Detailed

Letter of Intent

Science Fair Timeline–same as timeline for biology (this is only for those interested)

A & P Honors Research Project–a research paper coupled with a PPT presentation for the class.

*Please consider this the beta version of the agenda.  I am posting it now so that parents can get an idea of what the class will be like. Also, it has the preclass homework that should be completed before classes start in August. I have some article summaries that need to be added, but I am still working on that part.

**Completing coloring sheets is required for all students.  Every student is welcome to purchase the coloring book but only students that want to do the Honors option are required to purchase the coloring book.  Any coloring page that is required as an assignment will be supplied by me to those that do not have the coloring book. The advantage to all students purchasing the coloring book is that students won’t have to keep up with loose coloring pages.


“This is our advanced biology course. Combined with Exploring Creation with Biology, it gives the student the equivalent of a university biology course. In other words, these two courses together cover the entire “advanced placement” (AP) curriculum. In order to take this course, the student MUST have completed a first-year biology course AND a first-year chemistry course. It covers both the anatomy and the physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems in detail.”  Apologia website

Organization is very important and students are required to keep a notebook with sections for notes, book work, quizzes/tests, and worksheets.  Students should bring their textbook, student notebook, coloring book, binder, colored pencils and pencils to every class.

Two weeks will be spent covering most modules.  There is a tremendous amount of information per module—vocabulary, structure, functions, etc.  Students will need to spend time studying every day.  Weekly work will include reading, questions from the textbook, worksheets and studying for quizzes and tests.  Students will complete at least two small projects i.e. building a sarcomere.   In addition to normal course work, students will read and critique current event articles.

Students should plan on at least two quizzes per module.  Quizzes normally cover the previous week’s lesson, vocabulary, and diagrams.  Tests are administered after modules 1 – 4, 5 – 8, 9 – 12, and 13 – 16.  The fall final exam will cover 5 – 8 in-depth and possibly have important material from 1 – 4.  The spring exam will cover material from 13 – 16 plus possibly important material from 9 – 12.  Tests will be taken in class.

Lab experience is a vital component of anatomy and physiology.  Students will spend time performing microscope labs and doing dissections.  At this level, most dissections will be done alone.  The only dissections that will be done in a group setting will be the fetal pig, frog and brain.  Due to cost and size, the pig will be dissected in groups of two.  Lab drawings and summaries will be required for all labs.

This course will have an honors component. This honors component will be different from the Chemistry honors component.
