Unit 1: Orientation to the Human Body
This section includes a quick review from Biology and an introduction to the language of Anatomy.
Draw (by hand, yours, NOT by xerox) the diagrams that are most helpful for you. Remember, the more you draw something, the better you remember it.
6 class periods
1.1 Introduction to Anatomy Physiology
- Distinguish between 'anatomy' and 'physiology'
- Describe basic functions of an requirements for living organisms
1.2 Orientation to the Human Body
- Use anatomical terms to describe body sections, body regions and relative positions
1.2a Language of Anatomy Lab
1.2b Language of Anatomy
Quiz #1: 1.1 & 1.2
- Explain the significance of homeostasis by: (1) describing homeostatic mechanisms; (2) describing the role of positive and negative feedback in homeostatic regulation.
1.3a Exercise Lab
1.3b Case Study: The 2000 Meter Row
1.3c Homeostasis & Feedback Mechanisms
Physiology of the human body is all about homeostasis; all about how the body maintains the internal environment. The most important component of this is the feedback mechanism, the monitoring of changes. Make sure you can visualize the difference between positive and negative feedback.
Quiz #2: 1.3
- Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts, or others employing a variety of digital environments and media; contribute to project teams to produce original works or solve problems.
- Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. Students process data and report results.
- Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations. Students transfer current knowledge to learning of new technologies.
