Systole and diastole
This animation of the heart is a great way to teach your students how the heart acts as a pump. The students can visually see the systole and the diastole and the contraction of the ventricle. A graph pressure vs. time shows the pressure in different part of the heart at different time. There is also a graph of an electrocardiogram and of the heart sounds. It is a great resource for biology teachers.
