Labs: 10% [up to 2% per lab, 5 labs in total]
Exam I: 25% [Wednesday Oct 3, covers lectures up to Sept 2], inclusive
Exam II: 25% [Wednesday Nov. 7, covers lectures from Oct 1-29] inclusive
Exam III: 40%[CUMULATIVE: covers labs #1-5 and lectures from Nov. 5 to Dec. 3 (30%, 3/4 of exam)
+ all previous lecture material covered in Exams 1 and 2 (10%, 1/4 of exam)
i IMPORTANT NOTES:
1) The value of missed exams will be added to the final exam. No explanatory notes are necessary in the case
of a missed exam, except for the final exam. Only legitimate reasons for a make -up final exam will be
considered. A poor grade on the final exam does not count as a reason to write a make-up final exam.
2) All exams will consist of multiple choice and true/false questions.
3) Any required lab switching must be done in week s 1 and 2 (Sept. 5-14). It is suggested that students who
wish to switch labs post a message on Moodle’s Lab Forum to find someone who also wishes to switch. If
agreement is reached, both students must contact Lab Coordinator Marco Colavecchia via e -mail
) to officially make the lab switch. Beginning week 3 (start of Lab #1), attendance
will be taken in all laboratories. If you attend a lab in which you are not enrolled, you will be asked to
leave. Please attend only the lab in which you are enrolled. If you anticipate having to miss a lab , special
written permission can be obtained from Marco Colavecchia to attend an alte rnate lab session on a
one-time only basis.
4) The lab grade of 10% is allocated for A) being an active participant, and B) attending each of the 5
required labs. If you miss a lab, you get 0/2 for that lab. If you are a passive observer and offer only minor
help, but attend the entire lab (start to finish, attendance is taken at both times), you get a grade o1 out
of 2. If you are a passive observer, and are only present for half of the lab, you only get 0.5/2. If y ou
volunteer to be a subject for the lab, you automatically get 2/2 for the lab. Being a subject means wearing
the appropriate attire, and being ready to participate at the start of the experiment. Four subject volunteers
for each lab (one subject per group) will be determined in the prior lab session. If you are not a subject, the
TA can still assign you a grade of 1.5/2 or 2/2 if you are actively involved in other activities (eg. data
collection, performing calculations, operating equipment etc...) which make the lab come to a successful
and timely completion.
OVERVIEW of the COURSE
This is a Physiology course which specifically deals with how acute and chronic exercise affect the major systems
of the body (energy metabolism, cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular). Th e course relies heavily on its
prerequisites (Human Physiology I (2011) and II (3012)). It is assumed that you have a familiarity with basic cell
and organ physiology.
Upon the successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
Understand the differences between acute exercise effects, and chronic exercise adaptations;
Converse in educated manner about muscle, muscle metabolism, the cardiovascular and respiratory
systems, and how they function during exercise;
Demonstrate knowledge of physiological concepts related to exe
