Mrs. Moriarty’s Policies
Hon./C.P. Anatomy and Physiology 2010
Always Bring/ Never Bring
You must bring your binder every day. Your binder needs to be organized by chapter with important handouts for the course (such as this one and your pass) at the front of the binder. Always bring your lanyard, a pen (don’t take notes in pencil-its smudges over time), and some form of calendar/agenda book. Never bring a cell phone that is on, food of any kind, or drinks other than water.
During lectures, please be respectful of your classmates and me. If a student is asking a question, no one else should be talking; please wait your turn. I really hope you ask lots of and make comments, but please raise your hand first. When working in groups please refrain from talking to people in other groups. Please do not leave trash anywhere in the room except the trash can. Please keep negative comments to yourself. Absolutely no put-downs (about the class, assignments, or other students) will be tolerated.
Homework will be assigned for each chapter; you should spend about 30 minutes a night on A&P homework to keep up. Success in this class requires that you do some learning at home. Your homework assignments are designed to help reinforce the material; use your notes, your text and even google to complete each assignment. Late homeworks receive half credit and will not be accepted after that chapter’s test.
There are several projects assigned throughout the year that require you to do some outside research. These projects allow you to explore and research topics in the areas we are studying that really interest you. Some projects will be done in small groups. Late projects lose ten points per day. Projects that are not typed or that are missing references AND citations will not be accepted.
Anatomy and physiology is difficult, but you CAN learn the material. If you work hard in class and out of class you will find the course very rewarding. Most of the material I teach you will be on the tests. You will not be able to cram to do well. CP A&P students may re-take tests on which they earn less than 70%; an average of the two tests will be recorded up to a 70%. Hon. A&P students may re-take one test during the first quarter on which they earned less than 60% and an average of the two scores will be recorded. Make up tests must be taken on my night back immediately following the return of the test (there are no exceptions to this).
If you are absent you are responsible for the missing work. Please get assignments and notes from other students. I will not remind you to get your make up or turn in your work; it is your responsibility. Missed tests and labs must be made up on my next night back; there are no exceptions to this so please try very hard not to miss test or lab days.
