Physiology/Anatomy A/B (P)
This course is aligned with the subject related NGSS Life Science Standards.
The Physiology/Anatomy (P) course fulfills the general education requirement for a semester of life science and is available to 11th through 12th-grade students who meet the prerequisite requirements.
Physiology/Anatomy is a year-long course designed to support students with an interest in the human body. The in-depth study of cells, tissues of the skin (Integumentary System), Skeletal system, Muscular System, and Nervous System will peak student interest in the fall. Our study continues with Senses, Endocrine System, Blood Cardiovascular System, Lymphatic System, Digestive System, Respiratory System, Urinary System. The student’s understanding of all the systems will be applied through Triage (diagnosis presentations to professional panel). The last three weeks of the spring semester will be the dissection of a fetal pig. Passing both terms of this course student will meet the life science unit graduation requirement and the UC laboratory science requirement.
