Advanced Biology – Suzanne Passero
Suzanne Passero will be meeting with this group twice weekly and will utilize The Human Body: Advanced Biology in Creation, Second Edition by Shannon and Yunis and Kaplan Medical Anatomy Coloring Book. This is a Christ-centered, college-preparatory, high school advanced biology text. In order to be successful in this course students should have completed a first-year biology course and a first year chemistry course. Students will study the anatomy and physiology of the human body’s 11 organ systems, covering the material typically taught in a college freshman biology course. Parents should note that the human reproductive system is discussed in detail in this text. The tutor will discuss the material covered at home and will assist the students in performing microscope observations, dissections and other lab activities as well as maintaining a college level lab notebook. The lab work includes:
Dissections: cow eye, cow heart, fetal pig
Learning proper microscope usage
Histology – We will examine slides of human lung, stomach, skin, salivary gland, hair follicle, bone marrow, bone, striated muscle, human brain, tonsil, stomach, liver, lung, testis, sperm and blood smear under the microscope.
Misc. experiments: blood typing, cheek cell examination, two point discrimination tests and others
