2 Semesters 1 Credit Fulfills: CTE & Lab Science

Prerequisite: completed one year of biology and completion of or concurrent enrollment in a yearlong chemistry course

Anatomy and Physiology is a problem-based science course designed to engage students who are interested in exploring the human body and/or are pursuing careers related to the biological or medical fields. This class studies the relationship between the structures and functions of selected organ systems and covers both gross and microscopic anatomy. This course is supported by required hands-on laboratory experiences that include animal (non-human) dissections. Coursework will include explorations of ethical issues in medicine, problem-based case studies, conceptual model-building, and exten­sive cooperative group work. Part 1 of this course will cover the following systems: tissues, integument, skeletal, muscular, cardiovascular, and respiratory. Part 2 of this course will cover the following systems: digestive, excretory, nervous, endocrine, lymphatic, and reproductive systems.
