Unit 5: Skeletal System
5.1 Axis & Appendicular Skeletons
Name the components of the axial and appendicular skeletons and their functions
- explain the function of depressions and projections
- name the depressions and projections of the femur, humerus, scapula, and coxa
- name the bones of the skull
- discuss the difference in structure and function of the various vertebrae
- relate the structural differences between the pectoral and pelvic girdles to their functional roles
- distinguish between male and female pelvic girdles
5.1 a Chapter 5 Lab a
5.1b Axial Skeleton
Recommendation: get the diagrams & rough notes from the slide show, then add the stuff from the screencast...yeah, the catching-flies-screencast.
5.1c Appendicular Skeleton
Remember, you need to pay close attention to the surface features on the scapula & humerus (upper) as well as the femur & coxa (lower). In addition, do not forget to keep in mind (1) the connections between form & function; and (2) the anatomical differences between male and female skeletons.
5.1d Body Atlas: Muscle & Bone
5.1e Dem Bones Case Study
5.2 Microscopic Anatomy & General Functions
- Describe the functions of the skeletal system
- Compare the structure, function and location of spongy and compact bone
- Describe the osteonic canal system
5.2b Chapter 5 Lab b
- Describe the dynamic movements of the skeleton and the structure of representative articulations
- Distinguish among different types of joints and link structural features to joint function
5.3a Chapter 5 Lab c
Notice that joints are classified by structure and function, so, create a chart to organize this.
5.3c Spill at Parsenn Bowl Case Study
5.4 Bone Health & Disease
- Discuss the process by which bones develop and grow; and account for variations in their internal and external structure
- Describe the remodeling and repair of the skeleton and discuss homeostatic mechanisms responsible for regulating mineral turnover
