Anatomy and Physiology
(Offered in 2018-19)
Text: Hole’s Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology – 12th Edition.
Prerequisites: successful completion of Biology & Chemistry (one full year of each). If your student didn’t take these courses at New Hope Tutorials, please indicate what curriculum was used and their final grade (email tutor directly). A science survey will be required for students to complete upon registration.
New Hope is excited to offer a new upper level science course for the 2018/2019 academic year. Anatomy and Physiology is designed as a rigorous science course for 11th and 12th graders who have successfully completed Biology & Chemistry. Anatomy & Physiology (A&P) is a natural science course that will focus on the form and function of the human body. In class we will delve into a detailed study of each major system of the body and will learn how systems work together to maintain homeostasis.
This is a lab science class, and we will take every opportunity to enhance our understanding of complex processes with regular, fun, laboratory investigations. We will utilize online “lab bench” activities, in-class labs and targeted dissections. The study of A&P will require students to commit a vast amount of vocabulary to memory as well as the location of molecular/cellular structures (and processes), tissues, organs, and body regions. To aid in this endeavor students will have access to a top-notch website designed specifically as a complement to our textbook. This resource provides diagrams, case studies, slide shows, chapter notes, vocabulary quizzes, online labs, videos, and study materials. The best news is that the website comes at no additional cost to you!
If your student loves science, is hoping to pursue a career in the medical field, or simply wants to become more informed about the human body, then A&P is a great course to consider.
