Levels of Organization
  1. Chemical or Molecular Level
    1. Atoms combine to make molecules
      1. Molecular shapes determines its function.
    2. Cellular Level
      1. When molecules interect they for organelles
        1. Each organelle aslo has a specific function
          1. Organelles perform vital functions that keep cells alive
      2. Organ System Level
        1. Organ system is the process and parts of the organ that make it functuin
          1. Organ Systems in the Human Body and its functions
            1. Muscular System (MUSCLES)
              1. Locomotion, support, heat protection.
              2. Endocrine SYstem
                1. Directing long-term changes in the activities of other organ systems
                2. Cardiovascular System (HEART)
                  1. Internal transport of cells and dissolved materials, including nutrients, wastes and gases
                  2. Respiratory System (LUNGS)
                    1. Delivery of air to sites where gas exchange can occur between the air and the circulating blood
                    2. Lymphatic System (LYMPH NODES)
                      1. Defense against infection and disease
                      2. Urinary System (PEE)
                        1. Elimination of Excess water, salts and waste products.
                        2. Reproductive System (WHERE BABIES COME FROM)
                          1. Production of sex cells and hormones.
                          2. Skeletal System (BONE)
                            1. Support, protection of soft tissues, mineral storage, blood formation.
                            2. Integumentary System (SKIN)
                              1. Protect from environmental hazards, temperature control
                              2. Digestive System (FOOD PROCESSING)
                                1. Processing of food and absorption of nutrients, minerals, vitamins and water.
                                2. Nervous System (NERVES)
                                  1. Directing immediate responses to stimuli, usually by coordinating the activities of other organ systems.
                            3. Organism Level
                              1. All of the organ systems in the body work together to maintain life and health of the organism
                              2. Tissue Level
                                1. A tissue is composed of similar cells working together
                                2. Organ Level
                                  1. An organ consists of two or more different tissues
                                    1. Although the tissues are different, they come together to perform one specific task
