Course Description

Anatomy & Physiology/Lab
Course Number: 5220
Semesters: 2
Grade Level: 11, 12
Prerequisite: (1) Recommend a ‘B’ or better in Biology I, (2) Recommend a ‘C’ or better in Chemistry I/Active Chemistry, or currently enrolled

This full-year course is an in-depth study of human anatomy and physiology. It includes a systematic review of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, reproductive, endocrine, digestive, immune, and circulatory systems. Labs involving comparative study of cells, tissues, and organs are incorporated into the curriculum to supplement and enhance learning. Labs involving detailed dissections of either cow or sheep eyes, brains, hearts, and kidneys will be performed. Other dissections, such as fetal pigs or rabbits, may be included if time allows. Major human muscle groups and blood vessels will be studied using modeling clay, sculpted to a specialized human model. In addition, current topics in the fields of medicine and health will be researched using the Internet and other media. From this research, students will do PowerPoint presentations, brochures, oral presentations, or topical papers (3-4 pages).
