Anatomy and Physiology I
Summer 2017 quarter (First Session)
Anatomy and Physiology is the study of the structure and functions of the organs and organ systems of a living body. Students will conduct scientific investigations using scientific knowledge and methodology that will enable them to make educated conclusions based on critical thinking and problem-solving skills. First session areas studied will integrate biology and chemistry and will include: anatomical terminology, organization of the body, chemical basis for life, cells and tissues, integumentary system, skeletal system and bone identification, the muscular system, muscle naming and actions, the nervous system and special senses. An emphasis will be placed on real-world applications, and active-learning exercises will be included along with laboratory experiences. Students will be guided through optional dissections of the brain and eye to supplement hands-on learning. By the end of this course, students will have an even greater appreciation of the complexity and wonder of the human body.
