About This Chapter

The Blood Vessels chapter of this Middle School Life Science Tutoring Solution is a flexible and affordable path to learning about blood vessels. These simple and fun video lessons are each about five minutes long and they teach all of the topics involving blood vessels required in a typical middle school life science course.

How it works:

  • Begin your assignment or other life science work.
  • Identify the blood vessels 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 Middle School Life Science Tutoring Solution will benefit any student who is trying to learn about blood vessels and earn better grades. This resource can help students including those who:

  • Struggle with understanding arteries, capillaries, veins or any other blood vessels topic
  • Have limited time for studying
  • Want a cost effective way to supplement their science learning
  • Prefer learning about science visually
  • Find themselves failing or close to failing their blood vessels unit
  • Cope with ADD or ADHD
  • Want to get ahead in middle school life science
  • Don't have access to their science teacher outside of class

Why it works:

  • Engaging Tutors: We make learning about blood vessels simple and fun.

Blood Vessels: Arteries, Capillaries & More

1. Blood Vessels: Arteries, Capillaries & More

Blood vessels enable blood to flow through the body. Learn about blood vessels, including arteries, arterioles, capillaries, veins, and venules. Understand the functions of blood vessels and explore how blood backflow is prevented.

Major Blood Vessels Between the Heart and Lungs: Pulmonary Trunk, Arteries & Veins

2. Major Blood Vessels Between the Heart and Lungs: Pulmonary Trunk, Arteries & Veins

Major blood vessels between the heart and lungs include the pulmonary trunk, arteries, and veins. Explore the unusual pattern of the arteries and veins and how blood is oxygenated through the pulmonary arteries and veins.

Major Blood Vessels That Carry Blood Away From the Heart

3. Major Blood Vessels That Carry Blood Away From the Heart

The brain and other parts of the body receive blood through major blood vessels that carry blood away from the heart. Learn about this process and explore the structures and functions of the aorta, aortic arch, baroreceptors, and coronary arteries.

Major Blood Vessels: Descending Aorta - Thoracic and Abdominal Aorta

4. Major Blood Vessels: Descending Aorta - Thoracic and Abdominal Aorta

Major blood vessels include the descending aorta and its two sections called the thoracic and abdominal aorta. Explore these arteries, their structure and function, and the various branches of these arteries including the celiac trunk and common iliac arteries.

Major Blood Vessels Leading to the Heart: Superior Vena Cava, Inferior Vena Cava & Coronary Sinus

5. Major Blood Vessels Leading to the Heart: Superior Vena Cava, Inferior Vena Cava & Coronary Sinus

The major blood vessels leading to the heart transport oxygenated and deoxygenated blood to and from the heart. Learn about the venae cava, the superior vena cava, inferior vena cava, and coronary sinus.

What is Capillary Electrophoresis?

6. What is Capillary Electrophoresis?

In this lesson, you will discover what electrophoresis means and how capillary electrophoresis works. You will also learn how molecules flow and how data is plotted.
