Biology 20 A/B: Anatomy & Physiology

Biology 20 A/B: Anatomy & Physiology

Course Overview for Biol 20A:

Biology 20A is the first of a two semester sequence, designed for majors that require a fundamental background in human anatomy and physiology, especially those in allied health and related fields. These model of cross section spinal cord in boneinclude; dental assisting, dental hygiene, emergency medical technician, nursing, paramedic, pharmacy technician, physician assistant, diagnostic medical sonography (ultrasound) and veterinary technology. I strongly recommend taking chemistry prior to taking this class (I know it’s not a prerequisite). Bio 20A will first examine chemistry in biological systems, cytology (cells), and histology (tissues.). The class will then move into the Integumentary system before going on an in-depth study of bones and muscles. Finally, we will end with the nervous system. Laboratories will include dissections of laboratory specimens, examination of human cadavers, the use of microscopes, and physiological software.

Student Learning Outcomes for Biol 20A:

  1. Recall information quickly (i.e. identify major bones, muscles and organs).
  2. Explain structure and function of animal cell, tissue types, skeletal, integumentary, and muscular and nervous system.
  3. Determine the meaning of anatomical terms by applying knowledge of word roots, suffixes and prefixes.
  4. Construct and maintain an organized laboratory notebook with important information conducted in each lab period.
  5. Use microscopes and other equipment correctly and care for them properly.

Course Overview for Biol 20B:

Biology 20B is the second of a two semester sequence, designed for majors that require a fundamental background in human anatomy and physiology, especially those in allied health and related fields. These include; dental assisting, dental hygiene, emergency medical technician, nursing, paramedic, pharmacy technician, physician assistant, diagnostic medical sonography (ultrasound) and veterinary technModel of vestibulocochlear apparatusology. Bio 20B will examine the special senses, endocrine system, cardiovascular, respiratory, urinary, digestive, and reproductive systems. Laboratories will include dissections of laboratory specimens, examination of human cadavers, the use of microscopes, and physiological software.
