Human Anatomy and Physiology is a one-year course designed for college-bound students who desire to develop an understanding and appreciation of the human body. Students will learn the structures, functions, and regulation of human body systems through a variety of strategies. Students will gain an appreciation of how they are designed.
Students should have successfully completed one year of biology and one year of chemistry.
By the end of the academic year, students should be able to:
· Name and understand the terms that describe relative positions, sections and regions of the human body
· Define matter, energy molecules, compounds, chemical bonding and reactions associated with biochemistry.
· Distinguish types of tissues
· Identify parts of the skeletal, muscular and integumentary systems
· Describe the conduction and transmission of nerve impulses and integration with the special senses
· Associate various hormones with function and glandular origin
· Understand the cells, tissues and organs involved in the immune system
· Identify and describe function of organs in the digestive, cardio/pulmonary and urinary systems
· Compare/contrast male and female reproductive organs
· Compare/contrast human anatomy with cat anatomy
Student progress and understanding should be measured using a variety of assessments that may include the following:
- Class work and homework
- Coloring Sheets
- Study Guide
- Projects and activities
- Lab exercises, dissections and reports
- Chapter tests and quizzes
Session 1: Saturday, December 3, 2016 1:00 - 6:00 PM AND Sunday, December 4, 2016 1:30 - 4:30 PM

Students will follow directions and strict safety procedures at all times. A safety contract must be signed prior to LabDays.
Students will complete physiology lab exercises with Vernier probeware including surface thermometer, hand grip heart rate monitor, blood presser sensor, EKG sensor, hand grip dyanmometer, spriometer, and oxygen gas sensor. Probeware increases student understanding of science concepts, encourages inquiry learning the laboratory, and frees class time for student engagement in higher order thinking skills, such as analysis, synthesis, and evaluation.
