Questions you should be able to answer:
1. List the 11 human body systems.
2. Which systems work together to perform the function of nutrient absorption? What does each do?
3. Which systems work together to perform the function of regulation or homeostasis? What does each do?
4. Which systems work together to defend the body from injury or illness? What does each do?
5. Know the pathway from where the sperm is made to where it fertilizes the egg.
6. Differentiate between haploid and diploid.
7. Draw meiosis and explain why it is important for genetic diversity.
8. Know the levels of organization in the human body from smallest to largest.
9. Know the major organs in each human body system.
10. Why is it important for an organism to maintain homeostasis?
