S7284: The Human Body and Beyond! in HSSP Summer 2013 (Jul. 07, 2013)
Have you ever wondered why people get diabetes? What exactly happens in our heads when we think? Why are you happy when you listen to hip hop or angry when you listen to Beethoven? This class explores the processes behind our body's functions. We'll cover the nervous, cardiovascular, renal, and gastrointestinal systems. But that's not all! Do you love math? Because we do, too! By applying models, we'll show you cool and easy ways of using math determining whether a cancer drug will penetrate a tumor, for instance. Now, that's awesome!
