Your final project will be a 5-7 page paper, focusing on one major system we have studied this semester. You will use this system as the starting point, and then relate it to the other systems we have studied. For example, if you choose the skeletal system, you would not only describe in your own words the major anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) of the system, but you would also talk about how the muscular system is attached and how the nervous system enervation effects skeletal movement and health, how the endocrine system regulates growth and cellular turn over, by using the special sense of sight you can direct how the skeletal system moves in space, how the circulatory system and digestive system work to bring in nutrients and remove wastes, etc. The goal of this paper is to get you thinking about how no system is operating in isolation, rather everything works together to support the underlying principles we talked about in module one in detail and the core of this course: 1. The complementarity of structure and function. 
 2. The hierarchy of the structural organization. 3. Maintaining homeostasis.
