HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS
HUMAN BODY SYSTEMS (HBS)
Quarter course (1 unit)
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Principles of Biomedical Sciences with a ‘B’ average. Must have completed Honors Physical Science and Algebra 1 with a ‘B’ average in each.
Using real-world cases, students take the role of biomedical professionals and work together to solve medical mysteries. Handson projects include designing experiments, investigating the structures and functions of body systems, and using data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex and voluntary actions, and respiratory operation. Students examine the processes, structures, and interactions of the human body systems to learn how they work together to maintain homeostasis (internal balance) and good health. To be eligible for college credit a student will have to have at least a B average in the course and will also have to obtain the necessary score as determined by the colleges/universities that award credit for the course. College credit will have a cost dependent upon the college that the student chooses to award the credit.
There is a $35.00 lab fee for this course (plus $15 for a lab coat if needed).
