In this learning object the organizational levels of life are covered. Topics include listing the simplest to most complex levels of the human body and the organ systems. Labeling activities and quiz questions are included as self-assessments.
Body Physics sticks to the basic functioning of the human body, from motion to metabolism, as a common theme through which fundamental physics topics are introduced. Related practice, reinforcement and Lab activities are included. See the front matter for more details. Additional supplementary material, activities, and information can be found at: https://openoregon.pressbooks.pub/bpsupmat/
In this animated activity, learners examine how organs are visualized in three dimensions. The terms “longitudinal,” “cross,” “transverse,” “horizontal,” and “sagittal” are defined. Students test their knowledge of the location of abdominal pelvic cavity organs in two drag-and-drop exercises.
In 47 episodes, Hank Green will teach you anatomy and physiology! This course is based on an introductory college level curriculum, with Human Anatomy and Physiology, 9th edition, by Marieb and Hoehn as its main reference text. By the end of the course, you will be able to: * Understand the chemistry and cell biology of systems in the human body * Recognize how tissue types define the function of each organ system * Predict how the failure of an organ system might lead to disease * Explain how energy is changed into different forms throughout the body * Break down the names of anatomical systems using Greek and Latin root words We also made flashcards to help you review the content in this course!

The overall purpose of this preparatory course textbook is to help students familiarize with some terms and some basic concepts they will find later in the Human Anatomy and Physiology I course.The organization and functioning of the human organism generally is discussed in terms of different levels of increasing complexity, from the smallest building blocks to the entire body. This Anatomy and Physiology preparatory course covers the foundations on the chemical level, and a basic introduction to cellular level, organ level, and organ system levels. There is also an introduction to homeostasis at the beginning.
"This textbook is ideal for an introductory-level human biology course. It is aligned with the British Columbia Adult Basic Education learning outcomes for Provincial Level Biology, which is the equivalent of Grade 12 Anatomy and Physiology. This textbook begins with an introduction to sciences and the scientific method, and then addresses the human body in increasing scale: from biological molecules, to cells and tissues, to organs and all eleven organ systems, all with an overarching focus on health. The text employs clear writing, case studies for each chapter, interactive self-marking study activities, highlights of Indigenous knowledge and examples, a pop-up glossary, and links to resources for extending learning."--BCcampus website.
