I’ve just completed this assignment before Christmas and gained a Distinction.

My question was worded slightly differently but on the whole it’s asking for the same:

Start with explaining the features of skeletal muscle.
Skeletal muscles main functions are movement and why/how (Attach bone to muscle via tendons).
Myofibrils and sarcomeres.
Muscle contraction (Sliding filament theory).

Hope this helps.

I hope I get a distinction, not sure if I have answered all my questions right if I’m honest, but just not sure what to write for my last question, I thought I had to pick one of the skeletal muscles and describe it’s structure and function.

It’s asking about skeletal muscles in general, not one specific type. There’s three types of muscles in the body; smooth, skeletal and cardiac.

So what you need to do is search up “skeletal muscle” and just talk about these things:
• What it looks like? (striated etc)
• Is it multi-nucleated or singular?
• Is it voluntary or involuntary?

Then you could go on to talk about the questions @stephed listed above

Sorry mine was an assignment so for a distinction we had to go into detail but I had 500 words not 27.
I’d definitely stick with striated, multi nucleated and that they are voluntary movements.

27 words to explain the functions doesn’t seem enough.

You definitely be able to write the main points.

‘Skeletal muscles are striated in appearance, are multinucleated and require voluntary movement via signals from the nervous system’

But to then ‘explain’ is to essentially say WHY and link them to their functions. 27 words would never fit that part in.

On my other questions I don’t know what to take out just in case I take out relevant parts to give me more words
