- What is anatomy?
- The study of internal and external structures and the physical relationship between body parts
- What does gross anatomy refer to?
- structures seen by the naked eye
- What are the 5 levels of organization?
- organ level tissue, organ level, tissue system, cellular level, and molecular level (99% body)
- What is supine and prone and anatomical position?
- supine is lying facing up and prone is lying facing down and anatomical is standing everything together palms face foward
- Name 10/12 directions?
- Anterior, front

- protects brain, spinal cord, sense organs, soft tissue in chest, supports body weight over legs
- Appendicular skeleton?
- internal support and positioning of arms and legs, supports/moves axial
- What does the muscular system do?
- functions in locomotion, support, and heat production
- What does kinesiology mean?
- "science of movement"
- What do the skeletal muscles do?
- protects skeletal movement and position and exits/entrances of digestive tract
- aimed toward fitness and sports medicine and is concerned with internal and external forces of body
- What is the purpose of biomechanics?
- forces determine how parts of body move during performance of motor skill
