Class Summary - Today we used a projected presentation to introduce several body positions. We talked about what anatomy and physiology was (the study of the human body) and the difference between anatomy (the study of the structure) and physiology (the function of the body part). We talked about organization of living things from least complex to most complex. We arranged cards to find that atoms, molecules, macromolecules, organelles, cells, tissues, organs and then organisms is least complex to most complex. We learned about anatomical position and some common directional terms including anterior, posterior, superior, inferior, medial, lateral, proximal, distal, superficial, deep, central, peripheral, ipsilateral and contralateral. We drew these directional terms on our outlines or in our notes. Students then used laminated body figures to place labels on body outlines using the terminology on page 4 figure 1.3. With any leftover time, I had students do this interactive activity www.wisc-online.com/learn/general-education/anatomy-and-physiology1/ap15305/anatomical-terminology-relative-position
Homework: There is no homework tonight. However, if you have not had your parent fill out the parent contact form on the home page for anatomy and physiology please have them do so.
Objectives - Students will identify directional and regional terms on models.
