Human Anatomy & Physiology
Human Anatomy and Physiology is a fascinating study of the structure and function of the human body that God created. This course will introduce the students to all eleven body systems by discussing not only what parts are involved in each system but also how these parts work together to make us who we are. Additional topics include body organization, homeostasis, cytology, and histology. Students will gain knowledge through hands-on lab investigations and lab report writing. Students will engage in activities that incorporate scientific reasoning, analysis, and real-world application. One of the goals of this course is to prepare students with the skills necessary to be successful in future science classes in college.

Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology by Elaine N. Marieb, 10th edition. ISBN-10: 0-13-249911-8. The course lab manual will be supplied via PDF after the course begins.
Laboratory Component: Because this is a college prep course, we will perform experiments throughout the course. We will use a variety of virtual and hands-on experiments. For the hands-on experiments, many items can be purchased at your local grocery or drug store. Several items (3-4) will need to be purchased from a Biological Supply Company at a very minimal cost.
