Honors Human Anatomy
Teacher: Mrs. Inman
The human body is a very complex system. Just take a moment to think of all the functions
your body performs for you every day…Wow! In this class we will begin
an in-depth examination of the structures and functions that allow the human body to “tick.”
Using this intimate relationship between anatomy and physiology we can begin to dissect
(literally!) the amazing biological processes that allow us to dream, to kick a soccer ball, to
breathe, to digest a pizza, and to sense the world around us. This course will help prepare
students who are exploring a career in the health professions, as well as students who just
want to learn more about the human body. Lab activities, including dissection, will be part
of this course.
