Objective 10: Identify classes of hormones

I really thought that this objective would be a piece of cake, but when I tried looking up the classes of hormones online I got a bunch of different answers. So I decided to refer back to the old trusted textbook and chapter 15 lecture outline to find my answer. Hormones are classified into two main classes, which are amino acid-based hormones and steriod hormones. This information is like common sense now after reviewing the slides and textbook, and it makes me laugh that I tried to make this objective harder than it really was. Both classes of hormones are chemical substances that regulate the metabolic function of other cells in the body.
