Biology II: Human and Comparative Anatomy (26.0130)

When is this class offered?

THIS COURSE REQUIRES A PRE-SET STUDENT COUNT TO START UP IN AUGUST!

COURSE DESCRIPTION

This second level biology course is designed as an Anatomy and Physiology high school course incorporating labs.  Investigations will span a variety of anatomy concepts including the hierarchal organization of living things, the interrelationship of structure and function of an organism, as well as identifying those relationships between different body systems.  We will begin by looking at how the body is organized and then take a closer look at the various cells present so that we can move on to the organs and systems. Students will also expand their anatomy knowledge by exploring characteristics found among other organisms, too.  We will be doing a lot of dissections and hands-on activities. This class is exciting, but jam packed with information. Studying is a MUST as this component includes a lot of terminology. Whenever possible, careers related to medicine, research, health-care and modern medical technology will be emphasized.
