Description:

The skeletal system is a collection of tissues including bones, cartilage, ligaments, and tendons. It functions to support and protect the body and to aid in movement, as well as to store nutrients and produce blood cells. The skeletal system serves as leverage for the muscular system, which consists of specialized tissue that has the ability to contract and relax. The muscular system is responsible for bodily movements and stability, as well as the internal movement of substances within the body. This learning program is designed to introduce you to the human musculoskeletal system and its major components. The program begins with an overview of the skeletal system and its tissues, as well as the major bones of the skeleton. You will then learn about the structure of the joints between bones. Finally, you will cover the functions and tissues of the muscular system.

Upon completion of this learning program, you will be able to:

  • Recall the functions of the skeletal system.
  • List and describe the tissues of the skeletal system.
  • Identify the major bones of the axial skeleton.
  • Identify the major bones of the appendicular skeleton.
  • List and describe the types of joints in the skeletal system.
  • Recall the functions of the muscular system.
  • List and describe the features of muscle tissue.
  • Identify the major muscles and muscle groups of the body.
