Science Resource Center (SRC) located in CLB 112A for anatomical model resources and tutoring.

Open Anatomy Lab located in CLB 311 for anatomical model resources.


Quizzes (weighted 20%):  7 announced quizzes.

Tests (weighted 80%):  7 exams

Test coverage will draw from both the textbook and the laboratory.  Questions over textbook material may be multiple- choice, true-false, or matching and may cover any aspect of the subject.  Questions over laboratory material are short answer and cover identification (NOT to include multiple-choice or a word bank).  Quizzes cover Greek and Latin terminology and laboratory material.

Homework Policy


Attendance Policy

The student is expected to attend every class period during the course of the semester.  Missing classes tends to disrupt student study habits and causes you to miss valuable information that you will be tested upon later.


I am normally on campus morning through late afternoon Monday through Thursday.  Responses to emails normally occur within 12 hours, but possibly longer on weekends.
