About This Chapter

If you're looking for a convenient study aid for the MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary) exam, consider watching this chapter's video lessons. Short quizzes are also included to make sure you review the male and female reproductive system topics covered on this Michigan teacher licensing exam.

MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary): Reproductive Systems - Chapter Summary

Some questions on the MTTC Integrated Science (Secondary) exam will test your knowledge of human reproduction and development. Get ready for them with engaging video lessons and quizzes designed to help you review the following topics:

  • Animal reproduction
  • Organs of the male reproductive system
  • Spermatogenesis
  • Male reproductive hormones
  • Anatomy of the female reproductive system
  • The female reproductive axis
  • Hormonal control and phases of the ovarian cycle

Instructors use plenty of illustrations and animations to help reinforce your understanding of the reproductive system components covered in the video lessons. You'll find the same content outlined in the transcripts, and the multiple-choice quizzes can be used to determine when you're ready to move on to the next lesson.

Test your knowledge with a 30-question chapter practice test
Overview of Animal Reproduction and Development

1. Overview of Animal Reproduction and Development

At this stage in life, you likely know where babies come from. However, did you know that some animals can make clones of themselves and reproduce sexually too? In this lesson, you'll learn more about sexual reproduction and early vertebrate development.

Male Reproductive System: Functions, Organs & Anatomy

2. Male Reproductive System: Functions, Organs & Anatomy

Ever wonder what the inside of a male looks like? Find out in this lesson that explores the inner workings of the male reproductive system and the pathway that sperm takes.

Spermatogenesis: How the Male Reproductive System Produces Sperm

3. Spermatogenesis: How the Male Reproductive System Produces Sperm

In this lesson, you'll learn the series of steps necessary to produce a fully functional sperm cell. You'll also look at the structure of a sperm cell and see how it's equipped to venture forth into new territory.

Sperm's Journey from the Testes to Urethral Orifice

4. Sperm's Journey from the Testes to Urethral Orifice

Follow newly created sperm as they make their way from their origin of creation, the male testes, all the way to the exit of the male reproductive tract.

The HPG Axis: Hormones of Male Reproduction

5. The HPG Axis: Hormones of Male Reproduction

Do you know how your body communicates? How does the brain get in touch with other parts of the body? In this lesson, you will learn about how the male's brain uses hormones to communicate to the testes as a way of regulating reproduction.

Female Reproductive System: Internal Anatomy

6. Female Reproductive System: Internal Anatomy

Ever wonder where a female produces her eggs or how they get from the ovary to the uterus? Find out in this lesson about the internal reproductive anatomy of females.

External Anatomy of the Female Reproductive System

7. External Anatomy of the Female Reproductive System

We all know that men and women are different. But just how different are they? Learn a little more about the differences between men and women in this lesson on female external reproductive anatomy.

The Female Reproductive Axis: Coordination of the Brain, Ovaries & Uterus

8. The Female Reproductive Axis: Coordination of the Brain, Ovaries & Uterus

Without proper communication between the brain, ovaries and uterus, reproduction might not be as efficient. Learn about how these organs work together to ensure the body is ready for reproduction.

Phases of The Ovarian Cycle: Overview from Puberty to Menopause

9. Phases of The Ovarian Cycle: Overview from Puberty to Menopause

Just like the human body has to grow and mature before it is ready to reproduce the female's gamete, the egg also has to grow and mature. This lesson will introduce the process through which that occurs, the ovarian cycle.

HPG Axis: Hormonal Control of the Ovarian Cycle

10. HPG Axis: Hormonal Control of the Ovarian Cycle

Everything in the female reproductive system is connected. See how the brain interacts with the ovaries during the female's ovarian cycle in this lesson covering the female HPG axis.
