Bone development and growth begins in the womb through intramembranous and endochondral ostification (Colbert, Ankney, & Lee, 2013) . Bones grow with the help of cartilage osteoblasts, also known as “bone formers.” Bone cells of another kind also play an important part in the growth of bones; they are called osteoclasts, also called “bone breakers” irregular (Silverstein, Silverstein, & Silverstein, 1994) . Osteoclasts play an important role in growth and repair of the bone. When you have finished growing, the cartilage cells in the growth plate stop multiplying. The cartilage is replaced by bone, and the growth plate disappears irregular (Silverstein, Silverstein, & Silverstein, 1994) . .

    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.

    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.
