Organization of the Skeleton The bones of the body are categorized  into two groups: the axial skeleton and  the appendicular skeleton. The bones  of the axial skeleton revolve around the  vertical axis of the skeleton, while the  bones of the appendicular skeleton  make up the limbs that have been  appended to the axial skeleton. A list of  the bones in the axial and appendicular  skeletons is given in Tables 1 and 2,  respectively. Major bones of both  skeletons are shown in Figure 1.

    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.
