SC.912.L.16.13 Reproductive System

What You Need to Know

  • You need to know the basic anatomy and physiology of the human reproductive system. 
  • You need to know the process of human development from zygote to birth. 
  • For the male reproductive system, you will need to know the seminal vesicle, prostate gland, vas deferens, urethra, epididymis, scrotum, penis, and testes. 
  • For the female reproductive system, you will need to know the ovaries, oviduct (fallopian tube), uterus, cervix, and vagina.

Example One

A fertilized egg undergoes several stages before it is successfully implanted. The diagram below shows these stages as the fertilized egg travels through the female reproductive system.

B. uterus

C. vagina

D. amniotic sac


Example Two

A. the lungs of the fetus become functional.

B. alcohol can easily enter the mouth of the fetus.

C. many of the essential organs of the fetus are forming.

D. the fetus cannot excrete wastes.


Example Three

Sperm are created through meiosis in an area of the testes called the seminiferous tubules. Through which structure do the sperm travel to exit the testes? 

A. vas deferens

B. seminiferous tubules

Example Five

Which of the following describes fertilization? 

A. cell differentiation to form a blastula

B. formation of germ layers in a deuterostome

C. a sperm joining an egg to form a zygote

A. scrotum

B. testes

C. prostate gland

D. epididymus


Example Seven

Abnormalities present in the cells that line the uterus may prevent the production of offspring by directly interfering with which process? 

A. the development of the embryo

B. the differentiation of gametes into zygotes

C. the secretion of estrogen by the ovary
