Answer Key to Activities
Appendix A : Word Roots
Appendix B: Skeletal Muscle Origins and Insertions
- Two new exercises -- Cardiac Cycle and Pulmonary Ventilation – are added to this third edition.
- New activities within exercises increase the opportunity for students to use their visual and motor skills in learning key concepts.
- Coverage is now more integrated within individual laboratory exercises, rather than an atlas at the end of the text.
- Based on reviewer feedback new introductory narratives - a brief overview of the basic structure and function of each body system
- Each new lab manual includes a PowerPhys CD for students to use. PowerPhys is physiological simulation software that allows students to explore physiology principles through 10 self-contained activities. Each activity progresses through objectives with illustrated and animated review material, pre-lab quizzes, pre-lab reports, data collection and analysis, and a full lab report with discussion and application questions. Experiments contain randomly generated data, allowing users to experiment multiple times, but still arrive at the same conclusions. Updated and Enhanced Media Support – This third edition is supported by fully revised media components such as Anatomy Drill and Practice, Cadaver Practical, and Histology Review. The dynamic new program, Real Anatomy, brings the cadaver dissection experience to your students desktop. A rat dissection video is added to the already available cat and fetal pig videos, and cadaver review videos are also now available.
- Concise text -- The authors include just enough text to introduce concepts in each section and to set up and support the laboratory activities.
- Self-contained Lab Exercises -- All information and features needed to complete a set of laboratory activities are complete for each exercise, including lab reports. This keeps students focused on the topics learned in that lab.
- Variety of Questions and Activities -- Includes fill-in-the blank, art labeling, drawing, and identification questions.
- Lab Reporting – Two types of lab reports complete each exercise. The “Reviewing Your Knowledge” section at the end of each lab exercise provides a thorough review of the material in the lab. “Using Your Knowledge” reports ask students to apply the information they have learned.
- Illustration Program -- Unlabeled four-color drawings, photographs, and photomicrographs are included for students to label. Many of the figures are modified version of art from the Tortora A&P books, though some of the illustrations are unique to the Lab Manual.
- Answer Key. Answers to fill-in the blanks, labeling and identification exercises are found at the end of the manual for self-grading by students.
