No dissections are required for this course. Make certain that you bring ample supplies of paper (blank and lined) and drawing materials such as pens and pencils to each lab to complete lab exercises and record any personal observations of the microscope slides, models and cadavers.
Calendar entry: "A study of the fundamental
and organization of the organs and systems of the human body."
both the lecture and lab components of this course, there will be a
emphasis on the interplay between form and function. The only
for this course is BIO105 Biological Concepts-Unity or an equivalent
and you should enter BIO211 with a working knowledge of scientific
and the basics of biological organization from the cellular to
Specific Course Objectives
1. To acquire a precise and accurate
knowledge of the basic organs and organ systems of the human body and
describe concisely their functions.
2. To develop an appreciation and understanding of the 3-dimensional complexity of the human body through a detailed knowledge of the relational positions of major organs.
3. To become fluent in the terminology of the major regions and cavities, directions and planes of section of the human body in order to communicate this 3-dimensional complexity to others accurately and succinctly.
4. To be able to identify gross anatomical and histological details of the major tissues, organs and organ systems from microscope slides, models and diagrams.
You will find BIO211 a challenging course
will require a continual and regular commitment to review and
preparation for lectures and labs. Like any anatomy course,
BIO211 will be "heavy"
with terminology. You will be confronted with seemingly endless
of terms to understand for lecture and lab. Do not feel
Anyone can master anatomy if the commitment is made from the beginning.
Tips for Success in BIO211
1. Attend every lecture and lab! Yes,
is obvious, but I cannot overemphasize lectures and labs are the
to clarify your understanding of concepts and expand your
Be prepared to spend the entire 2 hours in the lab, and take every
to look at available materials and ask questions.
2. Read the assigned text pages. Prepare for each class by reading the text chapter(s) specifically assigned for a lecture or lab and review previous readings.
3. Take effective notes. All images used in lectures will be taken from the text unless specified. Furthermore, the PowerPoint lectures will be made available through the course web page. So, it will not be necessary to copy every word that is written on each slide during the lecture! Generally, the more time that one takes copying down text, the less time is spent listening to the lecturer and learning. Effective notes may be in a variety of forms such as short point-form, flow chart format or even pictorial. Discover the technique that works best for you!
4. Review your lecture and lab notes after every class. This step is especially important because it provides you with the opportunity to fill in missing details to improve your understanding, select key terms and concepts for the lecture, and to focus quickly and sharply on those areas where you may need clarification. As a general rule, expect to spend approximately 2 hours of review for every hour spent in the class.
5. Use the lecture study guides and links that are provided on this web site. For each lecture, I will provide a study guide that consists of a set of objectives, a list of all key words that you are required to know and understand, the text diagrams that you need to be able to label for the final exam and a set of review questions. I hope that these study guides will help you organize the information in the lecture and text so that you know precisely what I am asking you to learn and provide you with additional opportunities to self-test your understanding of the lecture topic. The long list of links on this web site will take you to sites where you can study many of the lecture topics through a much more interactive approach. Several of these sites also allow you to self-test.
6. Please see me as soon as possible whenever you have any questions, no matter how small they may appear. It is critical that you ask questions as they arise rather than wait until the last moment just before a test. I will do my best to be available for you either during my scheduled office hours or by appointment. We will also get to know each other more quickly and you will become more comfortable approaching either myself or other instructors.
7. Practice writing terms. In this way, you can learn the proper spelling. Also, practice drawing and labeling diagrams so that you will be able to quickly recognize structures that require labeling on an exam question. Although only the final comprehensive lecture exam will include diagrams, it is wise to get into the regular study habit of learning the required diagrams at the start of the course. Create flowcharts or pathway diagrams to summarize connections between organs and organ systems. Although we will study the human body according to each individual organ system, you must not forget that all are interconnected both structurally and functionally. Expect questions that test your understanding of the human body as an integrated whole.
8. Study effectively and intelligently. In other words, don't cram! Plan your study sessions in advance and allow for enough time to adequately review the material. Form a study group with other students if that is an effective study technique for you. Study to understand rather than simply memorize. The greatest hurtle for any student in an anatomy course is the sheer volume of information that must be learned. Repetition remains one of the more effective means of memorizing and understanding information, but it is important that you remember two key points. First, start early in the semester and study regularly. If you review continually and on a regular basis, then you will retain more information and improve your understanding. Second, take frequent breaks while studying. The human brain is not a sponge. We can only take in so much information at one time. After approximately 25 – 30 minutes take a break for about 10 minutes. Get up, stretch your legs and perhaps get a drink and then return to studying. Remember the key steps of repeated review and short study intervals.
9. Skeletons, microscopes, microscope slides, and anatomy models will be available in Halsey Instructional Technology Services (Halsey 259) to aid your studying for lecture and lab exams. Use every opportunity to study the models and other teaching materials.
10. Do not fall behind! Otherwise, these tips and techniques will have only limited benefit.
One of the goals for this course is for each student to be able to communicate knowledge of the basic structure and function of the human body. Communication is both verbal and written. During lab exercises, you will have opportunities to practice your verbal skills. Exams and lab quizzes are opportunities to demonstrate your written skills. Spelling is important because a difference in one or two letters can change completely the meaning of a word. For example, adduction (movement towards the body) and abduction (movement away from the body) refer to opposite actions. The ilium (one of three bones of the os coxae) and ileum (third part of the small intestine) clearly refer to quite different parts of the body. Within the nervous system, there are two basic divisions: afferent (impulses carried to the central nervous system) and efferent (impulses carried away from the central nervous system).
Spelling will be graded for both lecture and lab. One half (1/2) of a point will be deducted for any incorrect letter. The most that you can lose for a question due to incorrect spelling is one half of a point. If you follow the strategy suggested above of writing out difficult words, then you should be able to master their spelling.
We are here to help you succeed!

1. All phones must be turned off or be silenced unless you have permission from the lab instructor.
2. No food or drink will be allowed in the lab. If you need a drink of water, then there is a fountain in the hallway.
3. Please show the proper respect for the cadavers. The cadavers have been donated so that you will have an opportunity to see the actual tissues and organs. Out of respect for the deceased individual, the face and genitals will normally be covered until we look specifically at those body parts. You will have opportunities to examine the cadavers, but nothing is to be removed or damaged in any way. No photography will be allowed in the lab.

Connect Questions (5% of your total course grade):
A set of 10 questions for each lecture (starting with lecture 2) will be a required component of the course grade. Each set of questions has a due date of the start of the lecture. The raw score for all sets will be converted to a grade out of 5. Instructions for registering in Connect are posted in the class D2L.
Lab Quizzes (16% of your total course grade)
Starting with the third lab, there will be a lab quiz each lab period. Each lab quiz will be based upon the lab from the previous week. Lab quizzes will consist of short answer questions and identification of structures on projected images of anatomy models or cadavers. The structures that you will be asked to identify are those that you will also need to know for the lab practical exam, and the quizzes are intended to be practice for the lab exams. The quiz will take up no more than 10-15 minutes of a lab and be held at the start of the lab. If you are late, then you will not be allowed to write a make-up quiz. The lowest quiz mark will be dropped.
Lab Practical Exams (16% of your total
Lab practical exams 1 and 2 will follow the format of a “bell-ringer” test where you will be asked to identify labeled structures within a time limit. As the term “practical” suggests, the goal of the lab practical exams is to test your ability to identify those structures that you learned in lab and your understanding of their form and function based upon your observations of materials in front of you. Each lab practical exam is scheduled during a regular lab period.
1. The second lab practical exam will only include material learned since the first lab practical exam. It will not be a comprehensive exam.
2. No aids will be allowed during a lab practical exam.

Policy for Makeup Exams and Quizzes
In order to write a makeup exam or quiz, you must inform Dr. Dilkes or your lab instructor of your absence before the start of the exam or your scheduled lab period. Any student who does not do so will forfeit the chance to write a makeup exam or quiz and a grade of zero will be assigned.
It is the student’s responsibility to contact Dr. Dilkes or the lab instructor prior to missing an exam or quiz. A message from a family member or friend is not acceptable. Contact may be an email, message on the instructor's office answering machine, or a message to the Biology Office (HS142; 424-1102).
Makeup Lecture Exams:
All makeup lecture exams will be given on Friday May 9 in Testing Services regardless of whether any documentation is provided to explain your absence. A single exam will cover material from any exam(s) missed. It will be one hour in length and worth 100 points. The percent value of the makeup exam will equal the total value of the exam(s) missed. For example, if you miss one exam, then the value of the makeup exam is 14%. If you miss two exams, then the value of the makeup exam is 28%.
If you miss the makeup exam on May 9 and provide documentation, then alternate arrangements for a makeup will be made or an incomplete recorded. Without documentation, a grade of zero will be recorded.
It is critical that you email Dr. Dilkes of your intention to write a makeup lecture exam. If you fail to do so, then there is no guarantee that an exam will be ready for you on May 9.
Makeup Lab Quizzes and Exit Questions:
Documentation Provided. If you expect to miss your regular lab, then it is your responsibility to inform your instructor of your absence and contact the instructor of another lab section later that same week for permission to join that lab.
If you cannot attend another lab section during the same week, then discuss with your lab instructor any possible arrangements to write missed quizzes or exit questions at a later date.
No Documentation Provided. If you cannot attend another lab section during the same week and no documentation is given to your lab instructor within one (1) week after the lab, then a grade of zero will be recorded for each missed assignment.
Makeup Lab Exam:
Documentation is Required. Contact the instructor of another lab section to write a makeup lab exam. If you cannot attend another lab section during the same week, then discuss with your lab instructor any possible arrangements to write a missed lab exam at a later date. If you cannot write the lab exam during the lab exam week and no makeup exam can be scheduled, then the value of the missed lab exam will be added to the already written or to be written. That is, the single lab exam (whether it is the first or second) will be worth 16%.
No Documentation Provided. If no documentation is provided, a value of zero will be recorded.
Acceptable Forms of Documentation for Absences:
In those instances where documentation is needed, then the only valid reasons for missing a quiz or exam (that will be acceptable for a makeup exam or quiz) are:
1. Illness. A valid doctor's note will be required. This note must be on official stationary with the name, address, and phone number of the doctor (photocopies will not be acceptable). It must state clearly that you were unable to attend the lecture/lab exam or quiz on the date of the exam and have the doctor's signature. Once the validity of the note has been verified, you will be allowed to write a makeup exam.
2. Death in the family. Documentation such as a letter from the funeral home or hospital will be required.
3. An officially approved absence from the university. In the case of a sporting event, a signed letter from the coach is required and must be received by Dr. Dilkes at least 7 days prior to the exam.
Please note that absences due to holiday plans are not acceptable.
Changing of Grades in Exams, Quizzes, and Exit Questions:
Clerical Error-If you discover an addition error on your exam, lab quiz, or lab exit question must be directed to your lab instructor within one (1) week of receipt of the quiz, exam, or exit question.
Corrections in Grading-Regrading of an exam, quiz, or exit question will only be considered if a written explanation of the problem accompanies the exam. Any lecture notes or text readings that support regrading must be included with the explanatory note. Dr. Dilkes or your lab instructor must receive the disputred piece of work and its explanatory note within one (1) week after the return of the exams in order to be considered for regarding. Please note that regrading will not necessarily result in additional marks. The grade may increase, decrease or stay the same.
A university is a community of individuals who have come to together to instruct and learn. Included among the many academic and personal goals to be achieved at university is the ability to think independently and creatively, hone your written and oral skills for the communication of your ideas and grow as an individual with confidence in your abilities. For the university, it strives continually to improve its ability to instruct effectively and instill in each of its students the self-confidence, skills and knowledge to be successful. Academic misconduct such as cheating and plagiarism harms both the student and university by defeating these goals. A student who cheats fails to acquire the skills, knowledge and self-confidence needed for success, and the university will acquire an undesired reputation. Elimination of cheating and plagiarism is the responsibility of both the university and each student.
The University of Wisconsin Oshkosh is committed to a standard of academic integrity for all students. The system guidelines state: "Students are responsible for the honest completion and representation of their work, for the appropriate citation of sources, and for respect of others' academic endeavors." (UWS 14.01,Wisconsin Administrative Code).
Students are subject to disciplinary action for academic misconduct, which is defined in UWS 14.03, Wisconsin Administrative Code. Students on the UW Oshkosh campus have been suspended from the University for academic misconduct.
Students are encouraged to review the procedures related to violations of academic honesty as outlined in Chapter UWS 14, Wisconsin Administrative Code. The system guidelines and local procedures are printed in the University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Student Discipline Code 2003-2004 and can be found on the Dean of Students website at www.uwosh.edu/dean/conduct.htm.
Specific questions regarding the provisions in Chapter UMW 14 (and institutional procedures approved to implement Chapter UMS 14) should be directed to the Dean of Students Office.
Below are the details of UWS 14.03.
UWS 14.03 Academic misconduct subject to
(1) Academic misconduct is an act in which a student:
(a) Seeks to claim credit for the work or efforts of another without authorization or citation;
(b) Uses unauthorized materials or fabricated data in any academic exercise;
(c) Forges or falsifies academic documents or records;
(d) Intentionally impedes or damages the academic work of others;
(e) Engages in conduct aimed at making false representation of a student's academic performance; or
(f) Assists other students in any of these acts.
(2) Examples of academic misconduct include, but are not limited to: cheating on an examination; collaborating with others in work to be presented, contrary to the stated rules of the course; submitting a paper or assignment as one's own work when a part or all of the a paper or assignment as one's own work when a part or all of the paper or assignment is the work of another; submitting a paper or assignment that contains ideas or research of others without appropriately identifying the sources of those ideas; stealing examinations or course materials; submitting, if contrary to the rules of a course, work previously presented in another course; tampering with the laboratory experiment or computer program of another student; knowingly and intentionally assisting another student in any of the above, including assistance in an arrangement whereby any work, classroom performance, examination or other activity is submitted or performed by a person other than the student under whose name the work is submitted or performed.
Cheating will not be tolerated in BIO211.
Any instance of academic misconduct may result in an academic
such as a failing grade on the exam or quiz, a failure in the course or
expulsion from the university.
