Course Description

Human Anatomy & Physiology 
Grades: 11-12
6 Credits YR
Prerequisites: Biology and Chemistry

A year-long science elective, this course builds upon content from both biology and chemistry. It is designed for students who may be interested in a career in health-related fields, and are interested in learning more about how the human body works. HAP will explore various body systems, investigate how structure relates to function, and learn how body systems maintain homeostasis by coordinating and controlling important physiological functions. It is a rigorous lab course in which students will complete dissections and lab investigations. HAP also provides students with the opportunity to investigate topics of interest to them and find unique ways to present their findings to their peers and teachers through inquiry-based learning experiences and the development of presentation skills.
