Basic scientific principles are applied to understanding the human body and explored in a biology laboratory setting. Students will learn about how the Scientific Method is developing our understanding of major organ systems and how those systems function together. The course will also explore how our concepts of human physiology have changed through years of accumulation of scientific knowledge, how human physiology and evolution has been influenced by environmental changes, and how we influence our environment to maintain homeostasis. Course work will include group activities in the laboratory to see how organ systems work together and the development of a small group project that incorporates the information learned about human biology and how it relates to other aspects of life outside the realm of sciences.
