BIO302: Human Anatomy

Unit 3: Skeletal System   In this unit, we will study the different types of bone tissues and cells that comprise the skeletal framework.  We will learn bone naming conventions as we discuss various sections of the skeleton and identify the bones in each.  Finally, we will review the types of joints that attach bones to one another, learning how they function.

Unit 3 Time Advisory
This unit should take you approximately 22.5 hours to complete.

☐    Subunit 3.1: 4.5 hours

☐    Subunit 3.1.1: 6 hours

☐    Subunit 3.3: 4 hours

Unit3 Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this unit, the student will be able to:
- Name, describe, and identify the skull bones. - Describe the structure of the vertebral column and the thoracic cage. - Identify the bones of the upper and lower limbs. - Identify the bones of the pectoral and pelvic girdles. - Describe the structures of the joints. - Describe the structure and functions of the bones.
