CATALOG DESCRIPTION: This course is an evaluation of basic composition of nutrients and accessory factors required for adequate human nutrition. Students will learn the application of nutritional principles to the planning of normal and special dietary regimes. COURSE LEARNING OUTCOMES: Upon completion of this course, the student will be able t:  Define terminology that is commonly used in nutrition.  Identify the cultural, psychological, ecological, and socio-economic factors surrounding availability and consumption of food.  Identify reliable information resources for nutrition.  Explain the basic processes of human digestion. 1  Describe the macro and micro nutrient deficiencies and toxicities to physiological problems or diseases.  Explain how nutrition affects energy balance.  Explain how physical activity contributes to wellness.  Develop an eating plan that includes balanced calorie and nutrient intakes for age, body mass index, and physical activity. TEACHING METHODS: This course is primarily a lecture course with discussion and other class participation activities included. In order to create an optimal learning experience, the student is encouraged to be an active participant in all discussions and activities. Lecture will be supplemented with PowerPoint slides, videos, and other activities. The student is responsible for all material in lecture unless otherwise advised. The student is responsible for all textbook material in the chapters that are covered in lecture. EVALUATION TECHNIQUES: The final grade will be determined according to the following system:  4 Exams = 400 points If, for any reason, a student is unable to take a lecture exam, student may make-up the exam during the last 2 weeks of the semester: DEC 1 -13, 2016. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate with the instructor regarding make-up exams.  3-Day Dietary Analysis = 100 points Using the online MyDietAnalysis 5.0 program, students will conduct a dietary analysis of their food consumption during a 3-day period. A written summary should be included with your reports. More details for this assignment are posted on my Blackboard site. If you purchased a new textbook, you received an access code for the MasteringNutritionandHealth website. Since this is an online assignment—I would highly recommend that students do NOT wait until the last minute. Students should log-on and ensure their access code is working correctly. NOTE: This assignment will not be accepted LATE unless there are extreme and extenuating circumstances, in which case, written documentation will be required.  4 Online Quizzes—these must be completed by due dates. =150 points  Any other activities and/or assignments the instructor deems appropriate. Approximately = 150 points  Total Points Possible plus any other activities or assignments 800 points LATE ASSIGNMENTS AND MAKE-UP WORK:  For Exams---see above policy.  For the 3-Day Dietary Analysis—see above policy. 2  For Online Quizzes—once the due date has passed, there will be no opportunities to make these up. The dues dates are given in advance and are listed on the syllabus.  Other assignments—students have 48 hours from the due date to make up the work. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate with the Instructor. GRADING SCALE: Final grades will be according to a percentage of the total points as follows: A 100 - 90% B 89.9 - 80% C 79.9 – 70% D 69.9 – 60% F 59.9% and below In the event there is any question or dispute about a grade or completion of an assignment, it is advisable for students to keep all graded work in a notebook until the completion of the semester. Additionally, it is recommended that students check Blackboard on a regular basis to view grades and keep up with their grade point average in class. ATTENDANCE POLICY: Students are expected to attend class regularly. Please make every effort to be in class. Missed notes, handouts, assignments, and any other materials covered are the responsibility of the student. Students who miss 3 hours of class time or less will receive 10 points extra credit. If a student misses roll call, it is the student’s responsibility to communicate with the instructor that they are present. EXTRA CREDIT: Students may earn an additional 10 extra credit points by having a mini health check-up done at a health fair or by their own physician. This check-up must include: height & weight, blood pressure, cholesterol, and glucose testing. COURSE WITHDRAWAL: The deadline to withdraw from a course shall not exceed 3/4 the duration of any class. Contact the Counseling Office at any TCC campus to initiate withdrawal from a course ('W' grade) or to change from Credit to Audit. Check the TCC Academic Calendar for deadlines.
