    Tuition-$430 total ($215/semester). The first semester payment must be made to hold the student's place in class, the remaining amount is due by August 1.

    This class is a group class with a combination of SWMC and The Scholar Cube students. Class size will be limited to 10 so please register before August 1. 

    Length: Full Year Anatomy (2 Semesters). Students will meet for 12 live Zooms in fall semester, and 12 live Zooms for spring semester. During the week students will work on daily assignments in Google Classroom. Students will have a full week after the Zoom to complete the weekly assignments. 

    Includes: Access to class via Google Classroom, 5 assignments each week (85 total assignments each semester), access to graded assessments via Quizizz, vocabulary practice on Quizlet, online textbook resources, and science spiral template. Registration open all year.

    Description of Class: Anatomy and Physiology is a course that will enable students to develop an understanding of the relationships between the structures and functions of the human body. Students will also learn the mechanisms for maintaining homeostasis within the human body. This course will involve laboratory activities, projects, dissections, textbook material, models, diagrams,journal writings, and clinical studies.

    Class Approach: Lectures and activities will emphasize topics related to human anatomy and physiology.

    Students will read journals/medical articles, participate in group discussion questions, complete labs/lab reports, and complete diagrams of body systems.


    Upon successful completion of Anatomy and Physiology students will be able to-

    1. Use appropriate terminology to discuss anatomy and physiology.

    2. Identify anatomical structures and describe the complex interrelationships between

    structure and function.

    3. Explain how body systems work together to maintain homeostasis.

    4. Propose evidence-based hypotheses to explain physiological responses or the functions of

    anatomical structures.

    Textbook: Various resources will be used in the class, but all chapters will be provided via pdf from Cengage, CK-12, Holt and Glencoe resources. 

    Additional Supplies/Resources Needed:

    Color pencils, tape,  pens, notecards, 1 spiral notebook (90 pages or larger), scissors, tape, construction paper, play-doh or clay for 3d system models, dissection tools, latex gloves, dissection tray, dissection specimens (cow eye, cow heart, and sheep brain). 

    Requirements: The student will need access to a computer and wifi, upload images of work, upload video responses using Flipgrid, and complete assignments in a timely manner.

    Weekly Homework: Students will have 5-6 min assignments each week. In addition to weekly assignments, labs and online interactives are part of the curriculum.
