Course:Human Anatomy and Physiology II
Professor:Patricia Butterworth
  • Hybrid
Course Length:
  • 8 Week


I am Dr. Patricia Butterworth and I will be your anatomy and physiology II instructor for the summer 2023. I have been teaching at College of the Canyons for 10 years as well as other community colleges in the area.

Course Description

Course Objectives: A Human Physiology II course designed to continue the study of the structures and the functions of the human body.

Pre requisite: BIOSCI 204 with a grade of "C" or better. Units: 4.00; UC, CSU 54.00



Identify, describe, and draw the anatomical structures (organs, tissues, cells, cell products) for the sense organs, the endocrine system, the circulatory and cardiovascular systems, the lymphatic and immune systems, the respiratory system, the digestive system, the urinary system, and the male and female reproductive systems and evaluate the functions of each, describing the physiological mechanism by which each works to maintain health and homeostasis.



Name, identify, and evaluate the functions of pertinent anatomical structures (organs, tissues, cells, cell products) for each organ system studied.

What to Expect in this Course

Taking BioSci 205 in the summer means you have signed up for an incredibly intense 8-week class. This class is challenging, and you should not be taking it with another Science class during summer.

We will cover essentially an entire chapter each day!! You are going to be personally responsible for keeping up with this extreme work load, which is going to feel very different than your traditional Fall/Spring semester experiences. It is extremely important that you keep up with all of your work, and attend all class meeting.

Types of Assessments

There will be four online lecture exams and three practical lab exams.
