Human Anatomy and Physiology

I have said it before and I will say it again, all creation is awe-inspiring, but the work of the human body, created in the very image of God, is especially jaw-dropping! This 32 week 1.40 hour Advanced High School level Anatomy and Physiology class will embark on the challenging but fascinating study of the human body and its functions.  The class will showcase the intricacy and design from DNA and cell creation to the 11 major organ systems of the body. The text has 3 unifying themes: the relationship between physiology and anatomy, the interrelations among the organ systems and the relationship each organ to homeostasis.  This book will provide the student with a solid foundation in understanding and appreciation of the incredible living organism that is our human body.

This class will include lecture, experiments, anatomical models, dissections and hand on experiences of all kinds. All activities will drive home on the concepts covered in the class and the text. This class will be challenging and fun. Quizzes, test, homework assignments, and personal projects will be given and graded by the instructor. All grades and tests will be accessible though Schoology.com.  Prerequisite for this class is High School Biology.  High School Chemistry though helpful is not required.

COVID-19 Contingency Plan:

In the event that the COVID-19 pandemic affects our ability to meet in person in a classroom for the 2020-21 school year, we will make the following adjustments to this class. Tutor and students will meet at the scheduled class time via live video streaming and the class will be recorded and posted for students to view as needed. Labs will be conducted online and some will be completed at home.  Supplies will be provided by the tutor for home experiments.  Assignments and testing will be submitted electronically, and feedback will be provided electronically. Our goal is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation resolves.
