Ch 19: The Cardiovascular System: Tutoring Solution

About This Chapter

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

How it works:

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

  • Struggle with understanding cardiac conditions and diseases, blood types, the lymphatic system or any other cardiovascular system 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 cardiovascular system 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 the human cardiovascular 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 science tutor, these video lessons are thoroughly reviewed.
  • Convenient: Imagine a tutor as portable as your laptop, tablet or smartphone. Learn about the human cardiovascular 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.

The Human Circulatory System: Parts and Functions

1. 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.

Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

2. Anatomy of the Heart: Blood Flow and Parts

In this lesson, you will take a look inside the heart and identify the chambers and one-way valves that make up this vital organ. You will also follow along as we trace the flow of blood through the heart chambers.

Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

3. Types of Heart Conditions and Diseases

Your heart muscle receives a rich blood supply from the coronary arteries. If the coronary arteries become blocked, it can result in coronary heart disease, angina, heart attack or congestive heart failure. Learn how these conditions get started.

Functions of the Lymphatic System

4. Functions of the Lymphatic System

In this lesson, you will learn about the lymphatic system and the vital role it plays in keeping the cardiovascular system working. You'll discover how the lymphatic system (with its lymphatic vessels and capillaries) quietly works in the background to return leaked fluids back to the blood.

Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

5. Circulatory System IV: Red Blood Cells

Why don't mature red blood cells have nuclei or mitochondria, and how do these guys squeeze through capillaries? While learning about the brief but glorious lives of red blood cells, you'll also see which characteristics help them transport oxygen and carbon dioxide to other cells.

Blood Types: ABO System, Red Blood Cell Antigens & Blood Groups

6. Blood Types: ABO System, Red Blood Cell Antigens & Blood Groups

You are either blood type A, B, AB or O. But, did you know that your blood type is determined by microscopic antigens found on your red blood cells? In this lesson, you will learn about the different blood groups and why they do not mix.

Coronary Heart Disease: Definition & Prevention

7. Coronary Heart Disease: Definition & Prevention

This lesson introduces coronary heart disease, a common type of cardiovascular disease. Here, we will define the disease and discuss some basic preventative measures you can take.
