AP 100 - Survey of Human Anatomy and Physiology Credits: 5
Covers the basics of human anatomy and physiology including anatomical terminology, basic biochemistry, cells and tissues, and the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. Introduces common human disease processes. Prepares non-science majors and allied-health profession students to take advanced anatomy and physiology courses.
Prerequisite: Eligible for ENGL& 101 .
Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Define basic anatomical and physiological terms.
- Describe the normal anatomy and physiology of the integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic/immune, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive systems and diseases common to these systems.
- Describe how body systems interact with one another in human health and disease.
- Explain the concept of homeostasis and give examples of homeostatic regulatory mechanisms in cells, tissues, organs, and body systems.
- Recognize and use essential components of effective reasoning to evaluate information and to improve the quality of their own thinking.
- Apply relevant criteria and intellectual standards when evaluating their thinking as well as the thinking of others.
- Provide reasons for the conclusions they reach or accept and assess the relevance and adequacy of those reasons.
- Demonstrates active communication and close reading skills.
- Connect past learning with current topics.
- Critical Thinking - Critical thinking finds expression in all disciplines and everyday life. It is characterized by an ability to reflect upon thinking patterns, including the role of emotions on thoughts, and to rigorously assess the quality of thought through its work products. Critical thinkers routinely evaluate thinking processes and alter them, as necessary, to facilitate an improvement in their thinking and potentially foster certain dispositions or intellectual traits over time.
