Ch 36: Prentice Hall Biology Chapter 36: Skeletal, Muscular, and Integumentary Systems

About This Chapter

The Skeletal, Muscular and Integumentary Systems chapter of this Prentice Hall Biology course helps students learn the essential science lessons associated with the human skeletal, muscular and integumentary system. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Skeletal, Muscular and Integumentary Systems textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in the Prentice Hall Biology Skeletal, Muscular and Integumentary Systems chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the skeletal, muscular or integumentary 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:

  • The function and parts of the skeletal system
  • Joint function and structure
  • Categories and function of bone tissue
  • Cardiac, skeletal and smooth muscle tissue
  • Filaments and muscular contractions
  • Muscle metabolism
  • The epidermal layer in the integumentary system

The Skeletal System: Function and Terms

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.

Joints: Structure and Functions

2. Joints: Structure and Functions

Find out what part of your body is affected when you tear your meniscus, how synovial fluid is made, what the synovial membrane helps to comprise, what a joint is, and why a joint capsule is important.

Bone Tissue: Functions and Types

3. 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.

Types of Muscle Tissue: Skeletal, Cardiac & Smooth

4. 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

5. 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.

Muscle Metabolism: Synthesis of ATP

6. Muscle Metabolism: Synthesis of ATP

Did you know our muscles use billions of molecules every second to contract? This lesson describes the different metabolic processes by which ATP is generated by the muscle cell. Examples are utilized to define glycolysis, the citric acid cycle and oxidative phosphorylation.

The Integumentary System: The Epidermal Layer

7. The Integumentary System: The Epidermal Layer

Do you know what the largest organ in your body is? How about the layers of your skin? Or where skin cancer comes from? Learn the answers to these questions and more in this lesson on the integumentary system.
