Reporting Category: Anatomy and Physiology Standard: 4.5 - Explain how the muscular/skeletal system (skeletal, smooth and cardiac muscle, bones, cartilage, ligaments, tendons) works with other systems to support and allow for movement. Recognize that bones produce blood cells.
The illustrations below show a smooth muscle cell and a skeletal muscle cell.
Identify one location where smooth muscle is found in the human body and whether smooth muscle is under voluntary or involuntary control.
Identify one location where skeletal muscle is found in the human body and whether skeletal muscle is under voluntary or involuntary control.
The third type of muscle in the human body is cardiac muscle.
Identify whether cardiac muscle is more similar to smooth muscle or skeletal muscle. Provide two reasons to support your answer.
Scoring Guide and Sample Student Work Select a score point in the table below to view the sample student response.
The response demonstrates a thorough understanding of the various types of muscles in the muscular system. The response correctly identifies the locations of smooth and skeletal muscle, correctly identifies the control of smooth and skeletal muscle, and identifies whether cardiac muscle is more similar to smooth muscle or skeletal muscle, providing two clear reasons in support of the answer.
