Course Description Human A&P I is a study of the structures and functions of the human body with emphasis on cells, transport, tissues, and integumentary, skeletal, nervous, and muscular systems.
There are two prerequisites for BIO 2050: (1) BIO 1010 and (2) math proficiency of DVM 007 completed or the appropriate score on the math placement test. I expect students in BIO 2050 to have a basic understanding of biological principles, as appropriate for someone who has successfully passed BIO 1010. You will find BIO 2050 particularly difficult if you do not have a basic understanding of general biological principles. Also, you will be expected to do math in this class!
At Prince George’s Community College, for all credit courses, students are expected to spend a minimum of 37.5 combined hours of instructional time and related coursework time per credit hour. This course is a 4 credit course. This course achieves the minimum of 150 hours of instructional time by requiring 75 hours of instructional time and 75 hours of student work outside of instructional time.
Course Learning Outcomes There are three primary learning outcomes associated with this class:
1. Identify relationships between structure and function that exist within the body systems studied in this course.
Advance the student’s ability to understand mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis
Advance the student’s ability to understand how anatomical structures fit into the
hierarchy of anatomical organization (e.g., cellular level or organ level).
