HOMEWORK: chapter 9 Name: 1. Describe the general trends in range of motion of particular articulations in relation to the strength of a particular joint. Which joint is the most moveable joint in the body (you may have to look to a later spot in the presentation to find the answer for this)? Would you classify this joint as being rather strong, or a weak (easily injured) joint? The stronger the joint, the less range of motion of particular articulations. The diarthrosis/synovial joint is the most moveable. Synovial joints are fairly weak joints. 2. Describe the two methods for classifying (categorizing) articulations. The two methods of classifying joints are the range of motion and the anatomy of the joint. 3. Do all of the following for each of the four structural classes of joints: 1) give a basic description of the class of joints, 2) name any subclasses of this joint type and list a specific joint in the body for each subclass, 3) describe whether these joints are relatively strong or weak, and 4) describe whether these types of joints are relatively moveable or immovable. a. Bony joints – bony joints are rigid, immovable joints created by two bones fusing together. An example is the left and right mandibles in infants. Since they are immovable, they are very strong joints.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
