  • Honors Anatomy & Physiology

    Posted by Peter Delani on 3/11/2020 4:10:00 PM

    From Mrs. Miller, Bioloogy, Anatomy & Physiology Teacher;

    The Honors Anatomy and Physiology class began their cardiovascular unit this week.  One of the focuses of the unit is to understand the structures of the heart; atria, ventricles, valves, and large blood vessels.  More important is for the students to be able to understand, visualize, and demonstrate how blood flows through these structures to complete both the pulmonary and systemic circuits.  Students had the opportunity to show their understanding, and enjoy some fresh air and sunshine in the courtyard, by diagraming the pulmonary and systemic circuitry using sidewalk chalk.  This activity is a precursor to the pig heart dissection that students will perform later in the week, where they will again demonstrate their understanding of blood flow through the heart, but using a real pig’s heart.  Other activities in this unit will include students using Vernier EKG sensors to capture and analyze the rhythm of the heart as it moves blood through the circuits.

    Yesterday, members of the Boys and Girls Varsity Basketball teams went to the Steward School assemblies to participate in their 2020 March Madness of Books Tournament. The players participated in some drills and played a mini scrimmage allowing students to get involved and interact. Please see the pictures below. Many of the players attended school at Steward so it was an awesome event to have their old teachers see their successes!
