Anatomy and Physiology 12
Anatomy and Physiology 12 Course Overview
Homeostasis is maintained through physiological processes.
Gene expression , through protein synthesis, is an interaction between genes and the environment.
Organ systems have complex interrelationships to maintain homeostasis.
Anatomy and Physiology 12 is a new course based upon a course once called Biology 12. While the concepts and content may appear like the previous course, the purpose and intents of this course have been adapted to keep up with the rapidly expanding biological knowledge and how to interpret that information.
As outlined above, the course focuses on three “big ideas” to provide a framework to pursue knowledge and skills linked to human anatomy and physiology. In addition, students will be evaluated in many platforms of learning, from independent projects to unit exams, a midterm exam, and a final exam.
While studying biological sciences is a challenge, a primary reason to take this course is to discover what may be a viable manual to understand how to take care of a human body
