Anatomy and Physiology       Section 1                                                                                 Mr. Dixon

Unit 1: Introduction to the Body

 

Introduction: The study of anatomy and physiology is important for all the medical professions. You just have to watch a medical drama on TV to hear that doctors, nurses and other medical professionals use special terms to describe the body. They use these terms because they make descriptions and discussions more precise. In this unit we will learn the terms for anatomical directions and the major areas of the body. We will also learn the general functions for each of the body’s organ systems.

 

Essential Question: How do organizational systems help us understand the human body?

 

MCAS Standards: 4. Anatomy and Physiology

Broad Concept: There is a relationship between the organization of cells into tissues, and tissues into organs. The structure and function of organs determine their relationships within body systems of an organism.

 

Unit Objectives:

1.      Explain the relationship between anatomy and physiology.

2.      Describe the levels of structural organization.

3.      Briefly describe the function of each of the organ systems

4.      Name and define each of the life functions and name the organ system that is mostly responsible for each.

5.      Define the terms metabolism, anabolism, catabolism, and homeostasis. Explain how the terms are related.

6.      Explain how homeostasis is maintained through feedback mechanisms.

7.      Define, use, and label on a diagram the terms referring to location or position and direction.

8.      Define, use, and label on a diagram the terms referring to body planes and sections.

9.      Define, use, and label on a diagram the terms referring to cavities of the body.
