Muscular System Video Notes

Use this video to complete your note sheet (or you may hand write the notes on your own paper). I recommend watching the video at least twice- once to write everything down and once to write down everything I say. Then, use your notes to complete the submit form by 7:00 am Thursday, October 3, 2013.

PreAP Muscle Diagram

Use this interactive diagram to complete your muscle diagram. The only muscles you need to know are the muscles for which you can "click" on and get information. Be sure to label the muscle on your diagram, color it, then write its function and nick name in your chart. Color code the chart to match the color coded muscle diagram on your sheet.
**The muscle, function, and nick-name should be colored the same color as the actual muscle on back of your sheet**
