Class Summary - Today I had the students look in their textbooks to locate the reading requirement for Tuesday (9/12). Students should read section 1.4 which is pages 8 and 9 to be prepared for a quiz on that material. The purpose of this is to get students ready to read and comprehend college level textbooks. Then we used a mimio 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 in our notes. 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. An elective (non graded but helpful) assignment was posted in the class summary. For MY Class, (this rule is only for my class, Mr. Velie may have different regulations) in order to qualify for a retake of the test (scheduled for 9/19, you will have had to complete this assignment). Complete the activity and do a print screen and email, print, or show me the completion page.
Objectives - Students will identify directional terms on models.
