SC (9-12) Anatomy and Physiology Elective
9. Identify structures and functions of the cardiovascular system.
  • Tracing the flow of blood through the body
  • Identifying components of blood
  • Describing blood cell formation
  • Distinguishing among human blood groups

    SC2015 (9-12) Human Anatomy and Physiology
    7. Use models to determine the relationship between the structures in and functions of the cardiovascular system (e.g., components of blood, blood circulation through the heart and systems of the body, ABO blood groups, anatomy of the heart, types of blood vessels).
    a. Engage in argument from evidence regarding possible prevention and treatment options related to the pathology of the cardiovascular system (e.g., myocardial infarction, mitral valve prolapse, varicose veins, arteriosclerosis, anemia, high blood pressure).
    b. Design and carry out an experiment to test various conditions that affect the heart (e.g., heart rate, blood pressure, electrocardiogram [ECG] output).
