BIO302: Human Anatomy

Unit 1: Introduction to Anatomy   This unit will provide you with a quick overview of the body in order to contextualize the subsequent units.  We will begin by covering directional terminology and surface anatomy and conclude by identifying each organ system and its respective functions.  Upon completion of this unit, you should have a clear understanding of human anatomy at its broadest level.*
 
*Note: To understand these concepts you should have knowledge of the structure and function of a cell, which was covered in BIO101:  Introduction to Cellular and Molecular Biology course. Please review Unit 3: Cells of the BIO101 course as a refresher.

Unit 1 Time Advisory
This unit should take you approximately 9 hours to complete.

☐    Subunit 1.1: 3.5 hours

☐    Subunit 1.2: 3.5 hours

☐    Subunit 1.3: 2 hours

Unit1 Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this unit, the student will be able to:
- Define anatomy and anatomical terms. - Describe the anatomical positions, body directions, and body planes. - Identify the major body cavities. - Identify the nine regions or four quadrants of the abdominopelvic cavity. - Identify the organ system and their organs. - Describe the structure and function of connective tissues.
