Anatomy and Physiology I studies the structure and related functions of the human body organs and systems. Topics include learning anatomical terminology for proper communication, body organization, biochemistry, cells and the four primary tissues, the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, and nervous system, including the special senses. Laboratory experiences include use of skeletal and anatomical models to identify bones and major muscle groups, dissections of animal brains and eyes, microscopy, and reflex arc testing. An emphasis will be placed on real-world application of knowledge gained for each body system. Students will gain appreciation for the complexity and wonder of the human body.
