1. Define anatomy and physiology, and describe the subdivisions of anatomy.
    • anatomy- structure of the body
    • subs- gross=using the naked eye
    • mircosopic(histology)=only can be seen through microscope

  2. Use the meaning of root words to aid in understanding anatomical terminology
  3. Identify the levels of increasing complexity in the human body, from chemical to organismal.
    chemical, cellular, tissue,organ,organ system,organism level
  4. List the organ systems of the body, naming major structures and describing main functions.
    Integumentary-protect the body,kill bacteria, called the body with sweat glands, and keep the body warm wet hair.

    Skeletal- provide support to the body and protect organs. Bones also manufacture red blood cells which carry oxygen throughout the body.

    Muscular-basic function is to help the body move.

    Nervous-control the body.

    Endocrine-produce hormones which control many body functions.


    Lymphatic-supports the immune system and drains excess fluid from the body.

    Immune-protect the body from foreign invaders.

    Respiratory-supply oxygen to the body and remove carbon dioxide and other wastes.

    Digestive-breaks down food into a form that can be used by the body

    circulatory- move needed substances around the body and collect wastes.

    excretory-regulates fluid and salt balance in the body.

    reproductive- allow an organism to make more of its own kind.
  5. Describe the body in anatomical position.
    • A person stands erect
    • Feet together 
    • Eyes forward  
    • Palms face anteriorly with the thumbs pointed away
    • from the body
  6. Use anatomical terminology to describe body directions, regions and planes
    • superior/inferior-above and below
    • anterior/posterior-front and back
    • medial/lateral- toward midline, away midline
    • dorsal/ventral-backside and bellyside
    • proximal/distal-nearer end and farther end
    • superficial/deep- toward body surface, away
