MTEL Biology: Connective Tissue - Chapter Summary
A number of different bone shapes are covered in this Connective Tissue chapter. Bone tissue layers are also highlighted in a video presentation and informative text discussion. Use the video tags to pick out particular parts of video lessons you want to view again that deal with the following topics:
- Function and types of fibrous connective tissue
- Bone growth and development
- Adipose tissue and loose connective tissue
- Types and function of cartilage
- Bone tissue and bone anatomy
- Red and white blood cells and their functions
Your review of the text and video resources in this chapter will help you avoid being surprised by unexpected content dealing with connective tissue on the MTEL Biology exam. The videos make an effective review tool and don't require much time to watch. They're conveniently accessible via your computer, smartphone or tablet.
Objectives of the MTEL Biology: Connective Tissue Chapter
This chapter refreshes your memory of topics that will be in the fourth subarea on the MTEL Biology test, the Human Anatomy and Physiology subarea. The self-assessment quizzes in the Connective Tissue chapter include questions much like the ones that could be in the respective subarea. The Human Anatomy and Physiology subarea is weighted at approximately 14% overall and has from 17 to 19 different multiple-choice items.
1. Types of Connective Tissue
In this lesson, you'll learn about the various types of connective tissues in the body. These tissues include bone, fat, cartilage and blood. They form the framework of the body, support organs and much, much more!
2. Adipose Tissue and Loose Connective Tissue: Functions and Structures
This lesson explores the structure and function of two types of connective tissue: adipose tissue and loose connective tissue. You'll learn about the cells and fibers that make up each tissue and explore how these structures help our body function.
3. Functions of Red Blood Cells, White Blood Cells & Platelets
Blood is a connective tissue vital to our body's survival. In this lesson, we will explore the three functions of blood by delving into red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets - the three individual components that make up blood as a whole.
4. Fibrous Connective Tissue: Function & Types
In this lesson, you'll learn about a specific type of connective tissue called fibrous connective tissue. You'll also discover the other specialized fibrous connective tissues: tendons, ligaments and fasciae.
5. What is Cartilage? - Definition, Types & Function
Cartilage is a strong, flexible type of connective tissue found within a body. Learn more about its structure and function, as well as the different types of cartilage connective tissue we have in our bodies.
6. Bone Tissue: Functions and Types
In this lesson, we will explore bone as a connective tissue. We will discuss the anatomy of bone, as well as the cell types which make up bone, including how bone is formed and broken down.
7. 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.
8. Bone Growth & Development Factors: Endochondral Ossification
In this lesson, you will learn about the two ways we form bones: intramembranous ossification and endochondral ossification. You'll also discover how our bones grow after we're born.
