No – it’s not a picture of a sunflower.  Look closely!

Here is what we will cover.  You will notice that it is not that extensive in terms of content.  HL students do a lot more.

  • Draw and label diagrams of adult male and female reproductive systems.
  • How do hormones control the menstrual cycle? (Link to Endocrine system)
  • Relate hormonal changes to thickening of uterine lining, ovulation and menstruation.
  • What are the roles of testosterone in males?
  • Explain the process of IVF and discuss the ethical issues associated with it.

A good presentation can be found here.  Some great videos on this unit have been produced by NOVA.  Watch in segments or all at once.
