This comprehensive, beautifully illustrated, and affordably priced manual is appropriate for a one-semester anatomy-only laboratory course. Through focused activities and by eliminating redundant exposition and artwork found in most primary textbooks, this manual complements the lecture material and serves as an efficient and effective tool for learning in the lab.
Features include the following: Objectives set learning goals to prepare students for what they are expected to know after completing the lab, and also aid in the review of material; Pre-lab Exercises encourage students to actively prepare for the lab by defining key terms, labeling and coloring illustrations to learn anatomical structures, and reviewing vital material from previous units, saving instructors from having to spend excessive time reviewing material from the lecture; Hints & Tips appear throughout the book to help students navigate some of the more difficult topics in anatomy; Model Inventories provide easily referenced lists of anatomical structures that students are responsible for identifying. These lists help students catalog the specimens they see in the lab; a Pronunciation Guide has been added to help students learn the correct pronunciation of key terms; illustrations and photographs in Exploring Anatomy in the Laboratory were spacifically designed for use in the laboratory setting. The clear photographs and photomicrographs, coupled with carefully drawn illustrations, provide a detailed view of anatomical structures to improve student retention of the material and to aid in the understanding of important concepts; Focused Activities describe the guiding philosophy of this lab manual. Students learn best when they are actively involved in the laboratory. In this manual, students are asked to be active by describing, labeling, writing, coloring, and drawing; Tracing Exercises ask students to write step-by-step, turn-by-turn directions to follow substances (blood cells, food molecules, waste by-products, electrical events) through the human body, or trace the substances path on a map of the body. These exercises allow students to see the big picture of how the body systems interact and to understand the relationship between structure and function; Check Your Understanding questions ask students to use the information they have learned to answer critical thinking questions, which are frequently related to clinical scenarios; Check Your Recall quizzes in each unit include labeling, fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and matching questions.
