Ch 17: Skeletal System: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

The Skeletal System chapter of this College Anatomy & Physiology Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about the skeletal system. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the parts and functions of the skeletal system required in a typical college anatomy & physiology course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other anatomy & physiology work.
  • Identify the skeletal system concepts that you're stuck on.
  • Find fun videos on the topics you need to understand.
  • Press play, watch and learn!
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • As needed, submit a question to one of our instructors for personalized support.

Who's it for?

This chapter of our college anatomy & physiology tutoring solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about the skeletal system and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding the bones of the skeletal system, the structure and functions of joints, or any other skeletal system topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their biology learning
  • Prefer learning biology visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their skeletal system unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in anatomy & physiology
  • Don't have access to their biology teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about the skeletal system simple and fun.
  • Cost Efficient: For less than 20% of the cost of a private tutor, you'll have unlimited access 24/7.
  • Consistent High Quality: Unlike a live anatomy & physiology tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about the skeletal system on the go!
  • Learn at Your Pace: You can pause and rewatch lessons as often as you'd like, until you master the material.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn about the axial and appendicular skeletal systems and describe their functions.
  • Name and locate the major bones of the skull.
  • Name and locate the bones of the face and describe their functions.
  • Explain the functions of the bones in the vertebral column and ribs.
  • Describe the functions of the bones in the arms and hands.
  • Explain how the main parts of the shoulder articulate with one another.
  • Name the bones of the leg and foot and explain their functions.
  • Describe the parts of the pelvis and explain their functions.
  • Learn about the structure and functions of joints.
  • Classify joints by tissue and movement type.

13 Lessons in Chapter 17: Skeletal System: Tutoring Solution
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.

Major Bones of the Skull: Names and Location

2. Major Bones of the Skull: Names and Location

Your eyeballs, ear and brain all depend on skull bones to give them a place to live. These bones include the frontal, parietal, occipital, temporal, sphenoid and ethmoid bone. Review these bones and their purposes in this lesson.

Bones of the Face: Names, Function & Location

3. Bones of the Face: Names, Function & Location

In this lesson, learn which bones help you cry, breathe, eat and see as we review the maxilla, mandible, zygomatic, lacrimal, nasal, vomer and palatine bones of the face. Then, learn which bones are paired.

Bones of the Vertebral Column and Ribs: Definition and Function

4. Bones of the Vertebral Column and Ribs: Definition and Function

Learn about the importance of your ribs, vertebrae, and sternum. If it wasn't for them, you wouldn't be alive. You'll also find out what strange sounding words like manubrium and xyphoid mean.

Bones of the Arm and Hand: Anatomy and Functions

5. Bones of the Arm and Hand: Anatomy and Functions

The humerus isn't all that funny; it plays an important role in your body. Likewise, the radius, ulna, carpals, metacarpals and phalanges are all important components of your arm, wrist and fingers.

Bones of the Shoulder: Anatomy and Functions

6. Bones of the Shoulder: Anatomy and Functions

Did you know that your shoulder joint is made up of many different parts? In this lesson, you'll learn about the clavicle, scapula, glenoid cavity, and acromion, as well as some of their more common names.

Bones of the Leg and Foot: Names, Anatomy & Functions

7. Bones of the Leg and Foot: Names, Anatomy & Functions

Find out about the major bones which help you walk. We'll go over the femur, patella, fibula, tibia, tarsals, metatarsals, and something called the trochanter.

Bones of the Pelvis: Definition and Function

8. Bones of the Pelvis: Definition and Function

In this lesson, you will learn about your hips and the important structures involved in their formation. The ilium, ischium, pubis, acetabulum, pelvic cavity, and sacrum will all be covered.

Joints: Structure and Functions

9. 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.

Types of Joint Movement & Tissue Structure and Function

10. Types of Joint Movement & Tissue Structure and Function

Find out how your joints are categorized. You'll learn about the synovial, cartilaginous, and fibrous joints as well as diarthrosis, synarthrosis, and amphiarthrosis.

Acromion Process: Definition & Types

11. Acromion Process: Definition & Types

What is the acromion process? How does it function in humans, and how does its structure vary in different animal taxa? In this lesson we'll explore acromion structure, function, articulation, and more.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

12. What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome? - Causes, Symptoms & Treatment

Many people are afflicted with carpal tunnel syndrome. In this lesson, we will examine what causes this disorder, its symptoms, and how it can be treated.

What Is Elastin? - Definition & Explanation

13. What Is Elastin? - Definition & Explanation

Human bodies contain hundreds of proteins that perform specific functions. In this lesson, we'll examine the protein elastin to understand how it functions in our bodies.
