functions of skeletal system provides support, body form, works with muscle to perform body movements, and protects inner body organs
axial skeleton bones of the skill, rids (costae), vertebrae, and sternum
appendicular skeleton bones of the appendages or limbs

origin the end of the muscle that is attached to a stationary part of bone
insertion the end of the muscle that is attached to a mobile section of bone
tendons attach muscles to bone
ligaments attach bone to bone
epiphysis the two ends of long bone
diaphysis the shaft of long bone
epiphyseal-diaphyseal plate a growth region between the epiphysis and the diaphysis
endosteum membrane lining the medullary cavity
periosteum membrane covering the outer surface of the bone composed of connective tissue

short bone cubicle in shape, typical short bones, sesamoid bones
typical short bones human wrist and ankle, knee and tarsal, carpels
sesamoid shaped like sesame seeds, bones that form in a tendon, patella
functions of short bones reduce concussion, reduce friction
