Anatomy and Physiology

Prerequisite: Chemistry Studies, Chemistry SL

Anatomy and Physiology course investigates the structure and function of the human body, the biological structure of living organisms and their components. Students in Anatomy and Physiology course can expect a general overview of the systems and structure of the human body, including the skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, endocrine and reproductive systems. Students will also learn about exercise physiology, health care, legal and illegal drugs as well as diseases and disabilities. An emphasis will be placed on individual responsibility for achieving optimal well-being and preventive health practices that promote healthy lifestyles and reduce unhealthy risk factors. Taking advantage of the “engaged” learning process, the strategies provided with our e-book and its resources will enable us to strengthen the skills and concepts introduced throughout the course. The laboratory component of the course consists of collecting and evaluating data associated with fitness related components such as: cardiorespiratory endurance, body composition, muscular endurance/strength, flexibility, agility, speed, power, balance, coordination, heart rate and blood pressure.
