Human Body Structures and Functions
9 ) Identify structures 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
Describing common cardiovascular diseases and disorders
Examples: myocardial infarction, mitral valve prolapse, varicose veins, arteriosclerois
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).
