Part 1 Description
Anatomy and physiology are concerned with the body _ in this case, the human body. Students will learn about both the structure of body (anatomy) and the functions of those structures (physiology). The course begins with an overall view of the body, its various regions, and the terms used to discuss the body. From there, the course covers the cellular structures that make up the body and help carry out its necessary functions. The body is organized on several levels: tissues, organs, and systems. Cells make up the tissues, and some of the tissues come together to make the organs. Many of the bodys systems are interconnected. The course will discuss two pairs of interconnected systems: the skeletal and muscular systems and the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. This part of the course ends with a discussion of the digestive system.
Part 2 Description
Part 1 of this course began with an overview of the human body and an examination of several of the bodys systems, leaving off with the digestive system. Part 2 concludes the discussion of the digestive system and continues with urinary system, which helps to remove the bodys wastes. Students will then learn more about the glands and ducts of the lymphatic system, a system that is important for maintaining homeostasis, or balance, within the body. Students then learn about the bodys two systems of control, beginning with the nervous system. The brain, spinal cord, and nerves of the nervous system work consciously and subconsciously to control the actions of the body and receive input from the various sensory organs. The second control system is the endocrine system, a system of glands that produce chemicals, called hormones, which tell the body what to do and when it is time to do it. Finally, students will learn about the systems responsible for producing new life and how that new life develops, beginning with fertilization and ending when the organism is fully grown.
