1st Year Biomedical 9th Grade Students
LEARN - KNOW - MEMORIZE
Complete the assignments, learn the information, and be prepared to turn in FLASHCARDS the first week of school. You will have assessments on the infomation.
Use a Biology Textbook, Anatomy & Physiology Textbook, and/or internet to complete the following:
Part I: Human Body Organ System Overview
Name the 11 organ systems of the human body, and briefly state the major organs and functions of each system.
STUDY TIP: Create Flashcards, using notecards with the name of the organ system on front and list the major organs and function of each system on the back.
- Integumentary System
- Skeletal System
- Muscular System
- Nervous System
- Endocrine System
- Cardiovascular System
- Lymphatic System
- Respiratory System
- Digestive System
- Urinary System
- Reproductive System
Part II. Basic Chemistry
Name and identify the first 30 elements
STUDY TIP: Create flashcards, using notecards of the first 30 elements on the perodic table. The name of the element on the front of the card and the atomic symbol, atomic number and atomic mass (round to nearest whole number) on the back of the card. For example Helium (front of the card) and (back of the card) symbol He, atomic number 2, atomic mass 4.
Part III. Overview of the Cell
Anatomy of the ANIMAL cell only- Identify and describe the organelles on an animal cell diagram. Briefly explain the function of each cell organelle. (Do not build a cell model at this time.)
STUDY TIP: Create flashcards using notecards with a picture or sketch of the cell organelle on front and the name and function of the cell organelle on back.
- Plasma or Cell membrane
- Smooth Endoplasmic Reticulum
- Rough Endocplasmic Reticulum
- Golgi Apparatus
- Nuclear envelope
- Intermediate filaments
