College Science Prerequisites, Course Description and Textbooks
Anatomy & Physiology 2 (BIO202) - PrerequisitesPrerequisite High School Diploma or equivalent, and Anatomy & Physiology 1 or equivalent. Anatomy and Physiology 2 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 second semester equivalent of the two semester course dealing with structure and function of the human body and mechanisms for maintaining homeostatis with it. Topics include the study of blood, cardiovascular system including lymphatic system, immune system, respiratory system, digestive system, urinary system and male and female reproductive systems. Emphasis is placed on the integration of systems as they relate to normal health. Laboratory exercises provide first hand experience with the structure and processes discussed in lecture
*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.
