Unit Name: Anatomy & Physiology of the Human Body Unit 1: THE HUMAN SYSTEM

Essential Question

How can life be maintained at the cellular level? How are the structure & functions of cells similar to & different from an organism‚€™s structure & function? How do the ranges of environmental and bodily conditions affect the body (and the cells within various body systems)? How is cancer cell reproduction different from normal cellular reproduction? How can the body be studied non-invasively? How exactly does disease affect the body?
