Course: SC630 Anatom & Physiology

Grade: 11, 12

Subject Area: Science

Type: Standard

Credits: 1

Course Information:

This is a year long course that requires selection of both semesters: S1 and S2. This course is designed to give in-depth coverage of the structure and function of human beings with an examination of the major biological structures and functions of body systems. This course will fulfill the biological science credit for graduation. This class involves a comparative anatomy (dissection) of the domestic cat to further enhance student understanding between form and function.


  • Develop a vocabulary of appropriate terminology to effectively communicate information related to anatomy and physiology
  • Recognize the anatomical structures and explain the physiological functions of body systems
  • Recognize and explain the principle of homeostasis and the use of feedback loops to control physiological systems in the human body
  • Use anatomical knowledge to predict physiological consequences, and use knowledge of function to predict the features of anatomical structures
  • Recognize and explain the interrelationships within and between anatomical and physiological systems of the human body
  • Synthesize ideas to make a connection between knowledge of anatomy and physiology and real-world situations, including healthy lifestyles decisions and homeostatic imbalances
  • Demonstrate laboratory procedures used to examine anatomical structures on the cat along with a variety of Vernier Lab Pro equipment and evaluate physiological functions of each organ system

Prerequisites: Chemistry

Notes: This course will fulfill the biological science credit for graduation.
