Welcome to the information page for my human physiology course at Palomar College.
On the menu above, you can find links to the syllabus, lecture & lab schedules, calendars, and other useful course-related items. On the menus to the right are other links of interest, including those to my anatomy course. Please explore!
Per the Palomar course catalog, two hours lecture and seven hours lab are scheduled each week, although the amount of time spent in lecture or lab is dependent on the topics being covered and will be variable. Rather than separate lecture and lab periods that are precisely defined by time, consider the course to consist of two 4 1/2 hour seamless sessions per week, all in the same room, with differing amounts of time spent on lecture and lab material for each session.
Prerequisites: A minimum grade of ‘C’ in BIOL 102; or BIOL 200 and CHEM 104 or CHEM 100; or BIOL 100 and CHEM 104 or CHEM 100; or BIOL 105 and CHEM 104 or CHEM 100; or ZOO 200. Transfer acceptability: CSU; UC
Notice, it is possible to take ZOO 203 without a basic biology course. Even if you have taken the chemistry or anatomy pre-requs, you should strongly consider not enrolling if you have not taken at the very least, high school AP Biology or any of these bio courses: BIOL 100, BIOL 101 and 101L, BIOL 102, BIOL 105, or BIOL 200, or equivalent. Physiology is a difficult course. If you do not have some background in basic biology, plan on a tough semester.
