In Human A & P we will cover all of the major systems of the human body. The start of the year will cover the basics of what anatomy and physiology is and how they will be applied throughout the course. This class requires a lot of memorization such as Latin terms and the meanings of them, all of the bones of the body and the different parts, and all of the different muscles, along with various other systems.
