Anatomy and Physiology is a rigorous course that provides a working knowledge of the parts of the human body (anatomy) and how these parts function (physiology). Students will focus on four main cross-cutting concepts throughout the course: how structure is related to function, the relationship between cause and effect, stability and change, and systems and system models. The aim of the course is to enable students to understand how the different systems of the bodywork together to allow the entire body to function. This course is designed specifically for students who would like to pursue university classes involving health-related fields of study. Throughout the course, students will be given opportunities to develop their scientific process skills and laboratory techniques. Demonstrations, lab activities, videos, and dissections will be used to supplement classroom lectures and discussion.
