Mrs. Dotterer's PLTW Human Body Systems and Forensics Page
Welcome to Human Body Systems and Forensics!
I look forward to having a wonderful and productive year!
Human Body Systems Announcements:
Students examine the interactions of human body systems as they explore identity, power, movement, protection, and homeostasis in the body. Exploring science in action, students build organs and tissues on a skeletal Maniken®; use data acquisition software to monitor body functions such as muscle movement, reflex
and voluntary action, and respiration; and take on the roles of biomedical professionals to solve real-world medical cases.
Supplies needed- 3” 3-Ring Binder or several sturdy folders, pens & pencils, composition notebook for Learning Log
This course is an opportunity to study an exciting application of science - the world of forensic science. Case studies, laboratory exercises, text work and lecture will be used to introduce the basics throughout this course. In order to help solve cases, forensic scientists must learn to look at crime scenes with many different sciences and disciplines in mind (biology, chemistry, earth science and physics in addition to math and English!).
Supplies needed- 2" Binder or several sturdy folders, composition notebook for Learning Log, lined paper, pens & pencils
I am generally available after school for extra help or to make up assignments most days unless I have a scheduled meeting. Please see me beforehand to ensure I am available when you would like to stay after!
