Anatomy and Physiology 1 (BIO201) - Course Description

Anatomy and Physiology 1 requires four weekends to complete. The accelerated anatomy and physiology classes are held on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am to 6:30pm. (4 Semester Units, includes lab*)

This weekend anatomy and physiology class is a first semester equivalent of a two-semester equivalent sequence dealing with the structure and function of the human body and mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis within it. Topics include the study of cells, tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. Emphasis is placed on the integration of systems as they relate to normal health. Laboratory exercises provide first hand experience with the structures and processes discussed in lecture.

ISP does not require students of Anatomy and Physiology 1 to complete any preliminary 'introductory' classes prior to enrollment in our weekend accredited college science program.

*If the college or university to which the student intends to transfer Integrated Science Program (ISP) courses requires 5 instead of 4 semester units per portion of a course (either 1 or 2), we offer 1 semester unit independent study courses for each formal course which provide empirically-based studies that enhance, deepen, and further integrate knowledge of the subject by developing different problem-solving skills and conceptual organization than those fostered in formal classroom and laboratory learning.
