Describing an injury or illness in anatomical terms | Homework Help
1) Anatomical Terminology
Stump your classmates! This week, we are learning a new language, the language of anatomy! As with any new language, the best way to learn it is to use it! Practice by describing an injury or illness in anatomical terms and challenging your classmates to “translate” into plain English.
Here is an example to get us started: Jennie fell off her motorcycle and tore a nerve in her axillary region. She also tore ligaments in her cervical and scapular regions and broke the only bone of her right brachial region. Can you explain where her injuries are located?
2) Body Chemistry
Did you know that the majority of your body is composed of only four elements: Carbon, Oxygen, Hydrogen, and Nitrogen. These elements interact (along with others in smaller amounts) to form the major molecules and compounds in the body. How do atoms (the smallest particle of an element that retains the characteristics of that element) interact with one another? Describe the different types of chemical bonds that can be formed between atoms.
