About This Chapter
MTTC Physical Education: Human Body Systems - Chapter Summary
In the lesson videos of this chapter, you will review the systems responsible for the functioning of the human body. Each video lesson is taught by one of our professional instructors who will help you prepare for related questions on the Michigan Test for Teacher Certification (MTTC) Physical Education exam. You'll find questions regarding:
- The axial and appendicular skeleton of the skeletal system
- Muscle anatomy and the functions of the muscular system
- Parts of the pulmonary circuit and the systemic circuit of the circulatory system
- Oxygen transference and the respiratory system
- Elements of the central and peripheral nervous system
- The digestive system and symptoms of digestive problems
- How the body systems are interconnected and interact with one another
- Factors of physical activity and the effects of physical fitness
After each lesson, take the quiz that accompanies it to determine what topics you don't fully understand. Then, use the video tags to return to and review the portions of the lessons that explained these topics. Once you have completed the lessons and quizzes of this chapter, be sure to take the practice chapter exam to see if you know what you need to know about the systems of the human body before you take the MTTC Physical Education exam.
1. 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.
2. What Is the Muscular System? - Function & How Muscles Work in Groups
Ever feel overwhelmed when you look at all those muscles in your textbooks? Well, if you do, then maybe learning a little about their anatomy and organization and how they work together will help you sort through it all. In this lesson, learn about the muscle itself and how it works with others to help the muscular system function.
3. The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions
In this lesson, you will take a ride on the transportation system of the body called the circulatory system and its two parts: the pulmonary circuit and the systemic circuit. Take a look inside and see how every inch of your body receives the oxygen and nutrients it needs.
4. Gas Exchange in the Human Respiratory System
Did you know that the average human lung has a respiratory surface area that is roughly the same size as half of a tennis court? Believe it or not, that's how much surface area an active, healthy human needs to ensure that the body gets plenty of oxygen.
5. Nervous System Overview: Central & Peripheral
What happens in your nervous system when you react to stimuli? Did you know that the brain is sometimes uninvolved with reflexes? Find out the answer to these questions, and more, in this lesson on the human nervous system.
6. Gastrointestinal Health & Digestive Problems
In this lesson, you will learn about digestive health, your gastrointestinal tract and what you can do to keep it healthy. You will also learn about symptoms of common digestive problems.
7. Interaction Among Body Systems & Movement
In this lesson we discuss how body systems interact to create movement. We explain how the eleven body systems are indeed interdependent and interconnected and how they actually work together in unison.
8. Using Energy Systems for Physical Activity
We all need energy to go about our daily lives and accomplish the goals that we set each day. However, many of us do not know how our body energy systems work. In this lesson we review ways energy systems are used for physical activity.
9. Physiological Effects of Physical Activity
Frequent challenging physical activity does a body good. This lesson will discuss the ways that the body adapts to physical activity and the physiological changes that come from it. We will end with a brief quiz to see what you have learned.
10. Issues, Trends & Laws Affecting Physical Education Activities
Physical education courses are a fundamental part of our nation's K-12 school programs. P.E. is a progressive field. This lesson discusses the current issues, trends, and laws affecting physical education activities.
