This unit of study provides an introduction to human anatomy and physiology. It includes an overview of cell and tissue structures, the skeletal system, nutrition, digestion and excretion. Human Biology looks at how our bodies respond to environmental stimuli with respect to the endocrine, nervous and immune systems. After discussion of reproduction and development, it concludes with an overview of modern studies in human genetics. This unit has four main components: lectures, practicals, workshops and HB Online activities; this unit of study provides a suitable foundation for intermediate biology units of study.
Participation, laboratory report, incl. draft (25%), mid-semester test (20%), final exam (40%), case study presentation and participation (15%), satisfactory attendance (Faculty of Science requirement is 80%).
