*TEXT = Animal Physiology 2nd ed.; Sherwood, Klandorf and Yancey (2013)   **LAB MANUAL by Dr. Yancey.


GRADING:  based on a total of 430 points*, as follows:

           EXAM  I  (8-9 lecs)                  60 points (14%)

           EXAM II  (11 lecs)                     75 points (17 %)

           EXAM III  (9 lecs)                      65 points (15%)

           FINAL  (14 lecs plus review)      100 points (23%)--on last part of course, but with comprehensive aspects

           LAB REPORTS                         130 points (30%)*

*final point total will depend on whether all labs work as planned

Grade Scale: A/A- =90-100%;     B+/B/B- =80-89.9%;        C+/C/C- =70-79.9%;       D+/D/D- =60-69.9%;       F<60%

Plus/minus cutoffs at 63, 66.7, 73, 76.5, 83, 86.7, 93%

 

On the Laboratory Portion of Physiology = 310L 

Each week will have handouts with the experiments and reports that you will be responsible for during the semester.  Please read the following standard procedures I will expect for all labs, and do the exercises indicated. You are responsible for READING THE MATERIAL before the laboratory session.

NOTE that you will be working in teams of 3. Most experiments require cooperation among these teammates in order to accomplish the tasks. Typically, there are 3 rotatable duties to perform; duties should be rotated among team members. SEE INTRODUCTORY LAB I for details.
