This quarter-length course meets all benchmarks of the Human Interactions with Living Systems substrand of the Minnesota Academic Standards in Life Science, as well as some benchmarks of the Structure and Function substrand, while focusing on human anatomy and physiology. Topics include: the nervous system, nutrition and digestion, circulation and the respiratory system, how the body responds to disease and infection, internal regulation of the body and reproduction and development. Assignments will vary from simulations to connect body systems to labs requiring at home participation. 

Course materials: Online readings from a variety of sources; other selected web sites. Students will need to provide some common household supplies including colored paper, markers, and several grocery supplies that are easily found. Before a student can enroll in a MNOHS science course, MNOHS must receive a permission form signed by a parent or guardian (if the student is under 18).

Standards met: This course can be paired with Biology Survey and any other quarter-length biology course, or with Biology A and Biology of Companion Animals, to help students meet the biology graduation requirement. It meets some of the standards and benchmarks in the following strands of the 2009 Minnesota Science Standards for Grades 9-12: The Nature of Science and Engineering; Life Science.
