                Students are expected to attend all lectures and exams.  There are to be three exams during the course of the semester to test if concepts are being retained.  These exams will be lumped together to constitute 50% of the lecture grade, with the lowest of these exams being dropped from this calculation.  There is also a semi-comprehensive final exam worth 50 %.  Final exam will be a double test, first half being comprehensive over the first 3 test's material, while the second half will only be over material since the third exam.  Missing one of the first 3 exams without written excuse will result in a 25% deduction in grade.  Missing the final without excuse will result in failing the course.  Periodic attendance quizzes may be offered for extra-credit on exams.


                Although attendance is not required for all the lectures, previous experience indicates that only attending exams tends to hurt grades.  Some material is only presented during the lecture, with this material typically included on exams to add depth to the tests.  It is also encouraged that students spend a couple of hours after each class reviewing the notes and slides covered that day.  This course covers a lot of information, and only through continuous efforts can one succeed in learning Anatomy and Physiology.
