Human Body SystemsCCHS7306
Credits: BUHS 4, Sending Schools 1
Students will undertake a detailed study of human body systems through organ dissection, guided internet research, and 3-D modeling of major organs. Labs will feature data acquisition software used to monitor body functions such as blood flow, muscle reflexes, and respiratory capacity. Case studies will explore the roles of biomedical professionals as they diagnose fictional patients and devise treatment plans. Research projects will examine the interactions between body systems and the careers available to those who work in health-related professions. A unit on bone-based and DNA-based forensics is also included. Note that this is a course within the Project Lead The Way (PLTW) sequence of Biomedical Science courses and that a significant amount of work will be conducted online. Human Body Systems requires a significant amount of daily in-class and out-of-class work, and builds upon concepts learned in Biology and/or Principles of Biomedical Science (PBS). Students who have done well in either Biology or PBS are encouraged to take the course, with the understanding that it does not count as an elective science credit.
This course may also be offered for college credit.
