Course Objectives:1.List the components to scientific theory, describe their importance and apply themethod to solve problems.2..Identify the major organs of the human body systems, describe their functionsand physiology, and use this knowledge in real-life situations,3.Explain and apply the processes of homeostasis. Explain how the various organsystems work together to maintain homeostasis,4.Describe how diseases interrupt the function of the body systems and apply thisknowledge to predict outcomes caused by diseases,5.Explain and apply the basic principles of human development, the humanpattern of growth, and how growth is affected by genetics and environmentalsituations,6.Explain and apply basic evolutionary and environmental factors underlyinghuman morphological variation.7.Demonstrate the interdisciplinary nature of biology, cell structure, and function ofmolecules of life (carbohydrate, lipids, proteins, and nuclei acids)8.Use your knowledge to make decisions about real-life situationsStudent Learning Outcomes:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:1.Demonstrate the ability to use the scientific method to design experiments andanalyze data.2.Describe names and identify different types of tissues from diagrams, modelsand microscopic slides.4.Define and describe anatomical positions, directional planes and body cavities.5.Identify, name, and describe gross anatomical structures of various bodysystems, e.g., digestive, Integumentary, skeletal, cardiovascular, reproductive,muscular, nervous systems and special senses.6.Predict health consequences of the inability to maintain homeostasis.7.Explain the relation of cell division to growth, development, and heredity.8.Demonstrate understanding of biotechnology and its impact on the humansociety.9.Assess the positive and negative impacts of humans on the environment.Required Texts and Course Materials:
