Anatomy/Physiology is the study of the human body.

The principle of form fits function applies to life at its many levels, from cells to the organism. In the human body, there are 10 organ systems that work together to maintain homeostasis.

Listed below are the units of study in the course. The first trimester (Part A) consists of: Intro to Human Body, Cells/Tissues, Skeletal System, Muscular System, & the Nervous System. The second trimester (Part B) consists of: Circulatory (Blood) System, Cardiovascular System, Respiratory System, Digestive System, Urinary System, and Cat Dissection.

Medical Terminology (Prefixes/Suffixes)
Lists of Greek & Latin-based medical terms (prefixes/suffixes) for each chapter. Homework assignments: fill in charts; quizzes are given at the end of each unit.
Cells & Tissues (Chp 3)
Cells are the basic unit of life. Cells and tissues are specialized to perform particular functions within an organism.
Skeletal System (Chp 5)
The 206 bones of the skeletal system support & shape the body.
Muscular System (Chp 6)
Movement is the function of the muscular system, from the blink of an eye to the hint of a smile :)
Nervous System (Chp 7)
The nervous system controls and coordinates functions throughout the body & responds to internal and external stimuli
Blood & Immunity
Blood consist of plasma, red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelets. The 4 major blood types are: A, B, AB, & O.
Respiratory System

This system includes the lungs, pathways connecting them to the outside environment, and structures in the chest involved with moving air in and out of the lungs.

Digestive System

The digestive system converts foods into simpler molecules that can be absorbed and used by the cells of the body.
Urinary System

The kidneys remove metabolic wastes from the blood and excrete them to the outside via the urethra.
CAT Dissection

The FINAL Project of the year will involve a review of the body systems using the cat.
