This is the class website for Ms. Dennis' Human Anatomy and Physiology Honors, Biology science classes and Swim Team at Coral Reef Senior High School. The purpose of this site is to help communication among students, parents/guardians, team members and myself regarding class expectations and general class information to team members. I hope you enjoy your school year.
On this website, I have included information to help you stay informed about class activities, homelearning assignments, and team information. The SEE PAST page lists information about past class homelearning assignments including attached word document when applicable. This page is meant to keep you informed when you are absent to give you an idea of the types of things we cover in my class.
The MAIN DOWNLOAD section are lectures and study guides for major exams. Websites used for homelearning assignments are
Results from Swim meets and entries will be posted. Team schedule and practice schedules.
Anatomy & Physiology Honors
This class covers an in-dept study of the structure and function of the Human Body. Study areas include structure and functions of cells, tissues and the 11 organ systems in the human body. This class will assist in the understanding of the correlation between structural, functional, and medical functions.
Throughout the year hands on lab activities will be completed using mammal specimens and organs as a comparison in anatomy to the human body and simulated samples for clinical analysis. Discussion of case studies are also incorporated with each system.
Biology Honors is an inroductory course in life science. Studies will include brief studies of all major facets of living organisms including 1) cell structure and function, 2) survey of major kinds of organisms, 3) selected topics in Human Anatomy and Physiology, 4) genetics and reproduction, and 5) introduction to major ecological and evolutinary concepts.
Honors class will move at a faster pace and will be exxpected to handle more material
This class covers the concepts of the natural world and the working of your body.
Students will develop abilities to understand 1) scientific inquiry, 2) physical, chemical and cellular basis of life, 3) continuity of life and development of organisms over time, 4) unity & diversity of life, 5) ecological relationship among organisms
Throughout the year many activities will be completed including projects, research topics, simulated samples for clinical analysis, field studies, and various dissections of organisms and mammal organs.
I have been the Head swim coach for both teams since 2005. Coral Reef Swim Team has been one of the top teams in the district and GMAC for boys and girls since the opening of the school. As head coach I want to continue on building a competitive swim team and keep this outstanding stamina. Both girls and boys teams have made state qualifiers throughout the years.
“I am looking forward to an exciting new season this fall and anticipating state qualifiers for both boys and girls.”
