Health Science

Postby Aia » June 17th, 2008, 9:52 pm

The 2009 Health Science event will include circulatory and the skeletal systems.

Generally, I've heard the second system called musculoskeletal. Do you guys know if we're probably going to do the muscular AND skeletal systems or just skeletal?

They seem kind of interdependent to me, personally...

Because the skeletal and muscular systems are so interrelated, I would study both to be on the safe side. Besides, when you deal with the skeletal movements of limbs (supination of the hand, etc.), you're directly dealing with antagonist/protagonist muscles and their insertions and origins on bones.

Don't forget bone anatomy! Types of bone cells, layers, bone marrow, calcium absorption, etc.

how difficult is the skeletal system. it replaced the nervous system which was basically REALLY complex so its gotta be somewhat difficult.

Since Anatomy is about the same systems, does anyone how much more simplified it will be?

The rules are very good about specifying the depth of study for both B and C Divisions for the regional, state, and national competition, and they're coming out rather soon. Wait it out; but remember, if you're in doubt, study it anyway. :D

Did anyone take the Health Science test at Nationals? What'd you guys think of it?

I liked the nationals test a LOT. It was challenging, but not overly difficult. The use of actual organs was a very nice touch. What did you think?

I'm assuming he means actual physical real dead-body organs.
