  • Upon completion of this course, the learner will be able to identify the organization, structure, and function of the main human organs and systems using common medical terminology. They will understand the importance of organization to the function of the human organism and will distinguish between metabolism, anabolism, and catabolism. Session One: Basic chemistry, atoms, molecules, Chemicals, and Cells Learning Goals: They will be to describe an atom and compare the ways atoms combine to form molecules. Distinguish among the types of chemical reactions that are important to physiology. Be able to distinguish between organic and inorganic compounds, carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and high-energy compounds. Session Two: Cells, tissues, organization, and general plan of the body Learning Goals: Be able to identify different types of cells, tissues and recognize the major features of the human body include its cavities, membranes, and organ systems. Understand the planes of the human body. Session Three: The integumentary system Learning Goals: Be able to identify different skin layers and learn about the subcutaneous tissue, aging, and integumentary system. Session Four: The skeletal system Learning Goals: Learners will be able to identify the functions of the skeletal system, learn about different types of bone tissues, recognize the classification of bones, and learn about the embryonic growth of bone. In addition, they will study the factors that affect the growth and maintenance of bones. Session Five: The musculoskeletal system Learning Goals: Be able to identify the muscle structure and function, describe the muscle tone and senses, learn about energy sources and muscle contraction, and identify major muscles of the body. Session Six: Nervous system Learning Goals: Be able to identify different components of the nerve system, nerve tissues, types of nerve, the nerve impulse, spinal cord, and brain, and identify the autonomic nervous system. Session Seven: The endocrine system Learning Goals: They will obtain knowledge about the chemistry of hormones, the regulation of hormone secretion, the pituitary gland and its related hormones, thyroid gland, parathyroid gland, the structure and function of the pancreas, the adrenal gland and recognize its hormones. Session Eight: The cardiovascular system Learning Goals: Obtain knowledge about characteristics of blood, components of blood including plasma and blood cells, heart and cardiac layers, chambers, vessels and valves of the heart, cardiac cycle and heart sounds, cardiac conduction pathway, the heart rate, and regulation of heart rate. Session Nine: The respiratory system Learning Goals: Identify and describe the divisions of the respiratory system, the mechanism of breathing, pulmonary volume, exchange of gases, transport of gases in the blood, regulation of respiration, and acid-base balance. Session Ten: The digestive system Learning Goals: Be able to recognize different sections of the digestive system, oral cavity, pharynx and esophagus, structural layers of the alimentary tube, stomach, small intestine, liver, gallbladder, and pancreas. Describe the completion of digestion and absorption. Session Eleven The urinary system Learning Goals: Be able to identify the muscle structure and function, describe the muscle tone and senses, learn about energy sources and muscle contraction, and identify major muscles of the body. Session Twelve: The lymphatic system Learning goals: Learners study the lymph and lymph vessels; they will learn about Lymphatic tissue, human body immunity. Session Thirteen: Male reproductive system Learning goals: Learner studies cell divisions such as meiosis, male reproductive system, and aging and the reproductive system. Session Fourteen: Female reproductive system Learning goals: Learner studies cell divisions such as meiosis, female reproductive system, and aging and the reproductive system.
Homework Offered
If the students have some previous knowledge about the topic and are fast learners then reviewing the materials before the class, completing notes over the material and the comprehension questions should be easy for them. A few multiple-choice questions are meant to confirm the proper comprehension of the material. If the student is struggling to understand then the materials will be more challenging. In that case, I will schedule an additional one-on-one session to explain the main concepts and ideas as well as providing new quiz questions.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I consider a few components to evaluate the students in this class. 1) Their attendance and if they attended every class. 2) Did they complete the multiple-choice and comprehension question and turn them in on time. 3) Did they participate in the group discussion. I will write a report to the parent for how the student did in the class and their assignments. This will be a good indication of well they understood the materials and their future success in school.
Grades Offered
I will provide the necessary reading materials. Students are not required to purchase any items for their 3-D human body model. I will provide them with the necessary instructional videos and virtual models.
The material contents are appropriate for informed parents and mature students. Content is age-appropriate and focused specifically on the major human body systems without the inclusion of reproductive systems.
Learners will not need to use any applications, models, or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools. I will provide PPT or PFD’s of the material in the class.
