Principles of Anatomy and Physiology Task 2
Pass: Uses information taken from a specialist source to describe the structure and function of the muscular system and communicates it in own words.
Merit: Uses information found in different formats from at least 2 specialist sources about the structure and function of the muscular system and communicates it mostly accurately in own words.
Distinction: Uses information appropriately taken from a wide range of specialist sources, in different formats about the structure and function of the muscular system and accurately communicates it in own words.

The learner must:
describe the structure and function of the muscular system
explain types of muscle contraction
describe different fibre types
Learners must describe the different muscle types, including:
smooth, cardiac and skeletal
the characteristics of each muscle type
examples of where each muscle type can be located in the body.
Learners must identify the location of the major muscles of the body:
biceps, triceps, deltoids, pectoralis major, rectus abdominis, quadriceps (rectus femoris, vastus
laterals, vastus medialis, and vastus intermedius), hamstrings (semimembranosus,
semitendinosus, and biceps femoris), gastrocnemius, soleus, tibialis anterior, erector spinae, teres
major, trapezius, latissimus dorsi, obliques, and gluteus maximus.
Learners must describe the functions of the muscular system, to include:
Learners must include a description of the sliding filament theory for muscle contraction and make
Learners must describe how muscles work in antagonistic pairs and include the role of:
Learners must describe the 4 types of contraction:
Learners must describe the different fibre types: Type 1; Type 2a; Type 2b and include:
the different characteristics of each classification
examples of different sports or actions where these fibres are used.
Specialist sources refer to sources of anatomy and physiology information which are credible and
could include text/reference books, experts in the field and research/evidence based.
Different formats refer to the use of different ways that anatomy and physiology information may be
presented and could include journals or videos.
This response will be reviewed and graded after submission.
