This class was tough.
Honors Anatomy and Physiology focuses on how the form of the body (anatomy) fits its function (physiology). Despite it being an honors course, it would be more appropriate to say it is AP level. It is most enjoyable for students fascinated by the medical and health related fields.
Honors Anatomy and Physiology covers an intro to a&p, cells, cellular division, stem cells, cancer, histology, the integumentary system, the skeletal system, joints, the muscular system, the nervous system, sense organs, blood, the cardiovascular system, the digestive system, the respiratory system, the urogenital system, the endocrine system, and the lymphatic/immune system. I especially enjoyed how each unit provided greater insight as to how each of the systems works together and builds off of each other to keep the body at homeostasis.

Advice for students:
Keep up with your reading and take hold of your own learning and ask questions when you need clarification.
