Course Description:
This course takes a systematic approach to the structure of the human body. It covers anatomical terminology,
tissue classification and both gross and microscopic anatomy. Areas of focus include the anatomy of the
integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous systems, and embryology.
Lectures:
Tuesdays 1:10-3 pm (DSQ 9)
Wednesdays 10:10-11 am (TRS 3176)
Text:
Human Anatomy 8th ed. by Martini, Timmons and Tallitsch plus Mastering A&P with eText (Pearson 2015)
Course Evaluation:
Term tests: 40% (2 x 20%)
Written assignment: 15%
In-class group work: 5%
Final exam (cumulative): 40%
Written assignment (worth 15% of final grade):
You will be given a clinical anatomy case study. You will explain it in a report (MAXIMUM 500 words)
comprehensible to an average 10-year-old. You will be provided with guidelines pertaining to the grade 5
science curriculum. The assignment must be submitted on-line through Turnitin and is due by Friday, November
18, 2016, 11:59 pm.
Term tests and Final Exams
The format for both the midterm and final exams will include diagrams to be labelled, fill-in-the-blanks, and
short answer/short essays. Although recall of anatomical terms is important, understanding the significance of
certain features and relationships among anatomical structures to make a functioning organism will be
emphasized.
Note: Tests are to be written in pen. Tests written in pencil will be graded but cannot be submitted for further
grade consideration once they have been returned to the student. There will be no curving of the grades.
However, the lowest score from the two term tests will be weighted to 10% of the total grade allowing the
higher score of the two term tests to be worth 30% of the total grade. In addition, there will be bonus
questions on both the second term test and the final. These bonus questions will be taken directly from
material asked on previous tests.
The grades for the term tests will normally be posted within one week of the test date.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of BLG 700, students will be able to demonstrate:
knowledge and critical understanding of the principles of microscopic and gross anatomy topics
(particularly the integumentary, skeletal, muscular and nervous systems, and embryology) including
clinical applications.
accurate and reliable scientific written communication to a broad audience.
the ability to work effectively in groups.
Course Policies
The Department of Chemistry and Biology website (www.ryerson.ca/cab) has links to all the important forms
(e.g. medical, religious observance) and policies (e.g. Course Management, Academic Consideration and
Appeals) mentioned in this document. Click on the Undergraduate tab on the home page and then the Forms
and FAQs/Links tab on the undergraduate page.
If a problem arises that prevents a student from meeting his/her academic responsibilities, he/she must:
contact his/her instructor as soon as he/she can
meet with the instructor to request academic consideration as soon as possible
submit documentation to the Departmental Office within three business days of the missed test/deadline
Please note that all excuses for absences will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Acceptance of an excuse by
the instructor is not guaranteed. Cases may be reported to and reviewed by the Programme Director. The
instructor may not grant accommodation for undocumented or unbelievable illnesses, funerals, automotive
collisions, etc.
Departmental policy concerning missed evaluations: Students are responsible for writing tests/exams and
submitting assignments on the dates specified by their instructors on the course information sheets. If a
student misses a scheduled evaluation or due date due to unforeseen circumstances, academic consideration
may be granted by the instructor provided BOTH of the following are done:
a) The student must inform his/her instructor, preferably by email, in advance of the evaluation. The student
should request academic consideration pending the submission of supporting documentation.
b) The student must present valid, verifiable supporting documentation (e.g. Ryerson Medical Certificate) to
his/her program department within three business days of the missed evaluation.
This policy is in accordance with Senate Policy 134. Students failing to follow these procedures correctly may
jeopardize their chances of obtaining academic consideration and/or a successful appeal. Only in extraordinary
circumstances (e.g. the illness is such that you are unable to operate a telephone or email, or unable to submit
a medical note by the deadline) will exceptions to these procedures be made. Under such circumstances, the
student must contact the instructor as soon as possible to inform him/her of the circumstance.
Instructors will evaluate all requests for academic consideration and the supporting documentation on a case-
by-case basis. Academic consideration is not guaranteed. Submission of fraudulent documentation is
academic misconduct.
Academic consideration: If documentation is provided and accepted, then the instructor will decide how the
missed evaluation will be made up on a case-by-case basis. Typical examples of academic consideration are as
follows:
Missed Mid-Term: A make-up mid-term test can be given. It would cover the same material as the original
test but could be in a different format.
Missed Final Examination: Alternative exams must be written once the student is physically able. If
necessary, a departmental make-up day may be arranged for students to write the missed exam. It is the
student’s responsiility to ontat the instrutor to arrange for the make-up exam.
Student Email Policy: Ryerso’s “eate poliy 157 states that only Ryerson e-mail accounts are to be used for
a istrutor’s eail ounication with students.

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.
