ANATOMY Week Ahead: 4/16-4/20


This week we will learn some of the muscles of the body. I say “some” because there are over 600 muscles, but we will hit on only a few of them. You have a daily quiz over the muscles and an application quiz over the muscle contraction later in the week. Use your diagrams and sequencing cards to help you study. We will test over muscles early next week, Tuesday, and start on the cat Wednesday. We have the circulatory system to finish up as well. If you are gone Thursday and/or Friday you will need to take your quiz ahead of time.
**Extra Problems for Skeletal Test is Wednesday 7:40AM
If you are gone Tuesday or Wednesday share your Section 3 notes with me before you leave.

This week we will wrap up the Endocrine system and move on to the Nervous system. Keep up with your notes and assignments. This is the time of year when you start to feel like slacking off because Spring Break is fast approaching, but the spring time is busy with lots of absences from school. Make sure you stay on top of it!

We are close to our break! We are wrapping up the integumentary system with infections, disorders, cancer and burns. We will test on Friday. We will still do the suture activity but we will do it when we return from the holiday. I think an extra day reviewing the material will serve us well. We will still do extra problems for the test, we will just do it before the test on Friday morning, so you don’t have to come up to school next week early.

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.

UPDATE ANATOMY Week Ahead: 9/18-9/22


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.
