AP 102 - Bringing Anatomy and Physiology to Life Credits: 5
Intended for students interested in taking human anatomy and physiology without going into the depth of the other Green River anatomy/physiology course. Intended for non-science majors and for students not pursuing an allied health career. Develops an understanding of the structure and function of some of the key systems in the human body. Non-lab science course.
Prerequisite: Eligible for ENGL& 101 or MATH 072 .
Satisfies Requirement: Natural Science
Students who successfully complete this class will be able to:
- Define basic anatomical and physiological terms for specific systems.
- Describe the normal anatomy and physiology for selected 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.
- Use active listening and close reading skills.

- 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.
