Ch 30: Glencoe Biology Chapter 32: Integumentary, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems

About This Chapter

The Integumentary, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems chapter of this Glencoe Biology companion course helps students learn the essential biology lessons of human anatomy. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Integumentary, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems textbook chapter.

How it works:

  • Identify lessons in the Glencoe Biology Integumentary, Skeletal, and Muscular Systems textbook chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the human anatomy topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, re-watch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn about:

  • Structures and functions of human skin
  • Types of epithelial tissue
  • Skeletal system functions
  • Bone shapes and types
  • Skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle tissues
  • Striated muscle structure
  • Slow- and fast-twitch muscle fibers

Human Skin: Layers, Function & Structure

1. Human Skin: Layers, Function & Structure

This lesson will cover the three main layers of your skin, which includes the epidermis, dermis, and subcutis. In addition, we'll learn about other skin cells and tissue, such as adipose tissue, keratinocytes, melanocytes, and Merkel's cells.

What Is Epithelial Tissue? - Function, Types & Structure

2. What Is Epithelial Tissue? - Function, Types & Structure

This lesson will cover the different shapes and structures of epithelial tissue, including simple, columnar, cuboidal, stratified, transitional, squamous, and pseudostratified columnar epithelium.

The Skeletal System: Function and Terms

3. The Skeletal System: Function and Terms

You'll learn about the two major divisions of our skeleton, the axial and appendicular skeleton, in this video lesson. In addition, you will find out how bone is formed, thanks to tiny little cells called osteoblasts and osteoclasts, and what the major parts of a long bone are.

Anatomy of a Bone: Parts, Marrow & Types

4. Anatomy of a Bone: Parts, Marrow & Types

In this lesson, you'll learn how to classify bones by their shape. Additionally, you'll discover the structural makeup of bone and the different bone markings.

Types of Muscle Tissue: Skeletal, Cardiac & Smooth

5. Types of Muscle Tissue: Skeletal, Cardiac & Smooth

Have you ever wondered why muscle has different names such as striated, smooth, voluntary, or involuntary? This lesson describes the different types of muscle tissue based on their histology, mechanism of contraction, and regulation.

The Sarcomere and Sliding Filaments in Muscular Contraction: Definition and Structures

6. The Sarcomere and Sliding Filaments in Muscular Contraction: Definition and Structures

Did you know that a sarcomere is the fundamental functional unit of striated muscle? This lesson describes the thick and thin filaments of a sarcomere and how they interact with each other to cause sarcomere shortening and muscular contraction.

Skeletal Muscle Fibers: Types and Functions

7. Skeletal Muscle Fibers: Types and Functions

Did you know most human muscles contain a mixture of fast, slow and intermediate fibers? This lesson describes the structure and function of the three muscle fiber types found in humans.
