Human Anatomy and Physiology is a biology course for students interested in learning more about how the body works. This course is an introduction to the terminology, anatomy, and physiology of the human body as it applies to everyday life. This course is designed to introduce the college bound student to the structures and functions of the human body, and to provide a basis for understanding how changes in structure and function can lead to injury and disease. Successful competition of Chemistry I and II are required pre-requisites for this course.
1. Express an understanding of how the human body is organized.
2. Describe the location and structure of body tissues and organs.
3. Describe each body system in terms of its structure and functions.
4. Express an understanding of the basic regulatory process involved in physiological processes.
5. Express an understanding of how abnormal anatomy and physiology can lead to disease.
6. Identify the stages of growth and development from conception to death.
