7. Human Anatomy and Physiology  

View Events/Assignments for 

The human anatomy and physiology curriculum is designed to continue student investigations that began in grades K-8 and high school biology. This curriculum is extensively performance and laboratory based. It integrates the study of the structures and functions of the human body, however rather than focusing on distinct anatomical and physiological systems (respiratory, nervous, etc.) instruction will focus on the essential requirements for life. Areas of study include organization of the body; protection, support and movement; providing internal coordination and regulation; processing and transporting; and reproduction, growth and development. Chemistry will be integrated throughout anatomy and not necessarily taught as a stand-alone unit. Whenever possible, careers related to medicine, research, health-care and modern medical technology will be emphasized throughout the curriculum. Case studies concerning diseases, disorders and ailments (i.e. real-life applications) will be emphasized. The Human Anatomy and Physiology Georgia Performance Standards (GPS) will be covered during this course (www.georgiastandards.org).
