AP.LO.4: LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION:

  •    Anatomical Terminology

Unit Driving Questions:

Ohio Standards**

  • What universal language is used to describe regions, features, and structures of the human body?

AP.LO: LEVELS OF ORGANIZATION

  • AP.LO.1: Hierarchy of Organization
  • AP.LO.2: Anatomical Terminology & Body Regions
  • AP.LO.3: Types of Tissues
  • AP.LO.4: Homeostasis

 

Understandings:

  •  The human body is divided into regions and quadrants that are described by directional terms.
  • These terms are used in diagnosing, describing, and as common language in medical records.

Terms:  Bricks

Learning Targets**

  1. Identify the 4 quadrants of the human body
  2. Use terminology to describe the location of a patient complaint.
  3. Demonstrate how to use medical prefixes, root words, and suffixes to create and translate medical terms.
  4. Explain how prefixes, root words, and suffixes are used to describe medical terms.
  5. Use correct anatomical terms in context when describing the human body.
  6. Describe and identify on a diagram or model the main regions of the body.
  7. Locate on a diagram or model the relative positions, body sections, and divisions of the abdominopelvic cavity.
  8. Locate on a diagram or model regional body part terms used in medicine.
  9. Use standard anatomical positions as a reference point when referring to the human body
  10. Describe, identify, and use the planes that divide the human body in dissection and case studies.
