UPDATE Anatomy Week Ahead: 1/15-1/19 and 1/22-1/26


SHARK WEEK: This week we will use the menstrual cycle to model the cyclic nature of the endocrine system. We are moving along quickly.

**Look ahead. You will need to read through the lab and graph your data ahead of time. You just need to graph your data and draw your line. You may put all three different hormones on one graph just use different colors for your lines. The data is due Monday when you come to class.

ANATOMY Week Ahead: 1/4-1/5 and 1/8-1/12


Welcome Back! We will kick off this semester with a discussion of the endocrine system and its related organs and disorders. I have include the complete notes handout for the unit. You will notice I have posted which sections of the notes are due ahead of time. You should have the section completed on the assigned day so you can participate fully in the class discussions and activities. I have also included some study diagrams that will be used in class. To start the semester we will learn some suturing techniques and then start the endocrine system on Monday. Make sure you have the appropriate notes section completed for Monday discussion.

*** For Thursday bring to class an old sock you can cut up and an empty plastic bottle about the size of a water bottle or sports drink.

We will spend this week discussing the organ transplant process and debunk some myths about organ donation. We will also discuss your responses to the ethics case for this unit. You guys are brutal! The kidney donor lab will allow you to analyze clinical test results and apply your knowledge of organ transplant requirements to find the appropriate donor for a recipient. We will finish up the week with an application quiz over the organ systems (structures, functions, and location). Friday you will start the Autopsy lab with real cases that presented at a hospital. I have include some practice sheets for you below.

This week we will begin our quick review of the organ systems. We will discuss structures, functions, organ transplant, and you will get the opportunity to do an autopsy virtual lab involving real medical cases. Lastly, you will complete your first dissection of the beloved RAT!

Extra Problems for the Unit 1 Test will be Tuesday at 7:40AM in my room. You must be in the room before 7:40AM or you will not be allowed into the room. I would encourage everyone regardless of your test grade to do the extra problems. Every extra point matters in the long run.

**UPDATE: our discussion of the organ systems is taking a little longer because of your questions and our discussion in class. We will finish up on Wednesday. Look at the change for the end of the week. We will do the autopsy virtual lab next week.
