ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY HONORS (9633) Grades 11-12 6 Credits (Honors)
- Minimum course grade of B- in Biology Honors, or
- Minimum course grade of A- in Biology CP, or
- Minimum course grade of B- in AP Biology
Anatomy and Physiology Honors is intended for students who have demonstrated success in previous science and mathematics courses, as well as an interest in continuing with post-secondary studies in health-related careers or biological science. This course meets six times a week and has a formal two-period lab as part of the instructional process. This is an accelerated full-year introductory program designed to provide students with theoretical and practical knowledge and experience with the fundamental concepts of the function and structure of the human body systems. Supervised dissections, relevant laboratory experiences, field trips for enrichment and an end of year project are included within the instructional aspects of the course. The course will cover the same material as Anatomy and Physiology but will entail a more inquiry-based, in-depth study of the topics and an emphasis on the development of research and laboratory skills.
