Visualizing Human Biology Lab Manual provides 18 labs specifically designed for the non-majors biology student, each of which engages students by focusing on the structure and function of each person’s own unique body. The lab manual includes key experiments with step-by-step visual guides and more interesting, real world topics to connect with students’ diverse experiences. Visuals are used to teach and explain, not just illustrate, and students with varied learning styles will be engaged. The applications of common laboratory techniques in science, medicine, and everyday life are also explored in each lab topic.
