Laboratory Investigations in Anatomy & Physiology, Cat Version


Laboratory Investigations in Anatomy & Physiology, Cat Version by Stephen N. Sarikas

This concise lab manual is designed for instructors wanting a briefer and less expensive lab manual than traditionally available for the two-semester anatomy & physiology lab course and who also want their students to develop critical thinking skills in the lab. Laboratory Investigations in Anatomy & Physiology, Cat Version, Second Edition contains only 31 exercises, providing just the core exercises done in most lab courses, in contrast to the 40 or 50 lab exercises included in the leading anatomy & physiology lab manuals. Through the use of frequent and engaging Questions to Consider, author Stephen Sarikas helps students think about complex ideas and make connections between concepts. By challenging students not only to observe but also to interpret what they experience in the lab, he gives students an investigative experience that ensures they will retain what they have learned-a tremendous benefit to any student going into a healthcare-related career. The Second Edition features all-new activities on surface anatomy, a fascinating new feature on forensic science, enlarged illustrations with more deeply contrasting colors to make learning easier, a new website for practice and quizzing, and the new Practice Anatomy Lab (PAL (TM)) 2.0 anatomy practice and assessment tool. Main and Pig Versions of this lab manual are also available.
