Authors Terry Martin and Cynthia Prentice-Craver combine passion for and experience teaching human anatomy and physiology with a commitment to developing curricula that stimulates student curiosity and enthusiasm, which results in a laboratory manual with an innovative, hands-on approach that benefits students. The Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology includes a main version, a cat version, and a fetal pig version. Each of these includes sixty-three laboratory exercises, three supplemental labs found online, and six cat, or fetal pig, dissection labs in corresponding versions. All versions are written to work well with any anatomy and physiology text.

New to this Edition

Complete digital lab manual?with all pre-lab and post-lab questions?available on Connect.

Brand new test bank with 20 unique questions for each exercise focused on mastery after lab completion.

New exercise (56) on Metabolism.

Added APR icons on the image sub-heading level for greater precision.

Retained Features

The procedures are clear, concise, and easy to follow. Relevant lists and summary tables present the contents efficiently. Histology micrographs and cadaver photos are incorporated in the appropriate locations within the associated labs.

The pre-lab section includes quiz questions. It also directs the student to carefully read the introductory material and the entire lab to become familiar with its contents. If necessary, a textbook or lecture notes might be needed to supplement the concepts.

Terminologia Anatomica is used as the source for universal terminology in this laboratory manual. Alternative names are included when a term is introduced for the first time.

Laboratory assessments immediately follow each laboratory exercise.

Histology photos are placed within the appropriate laboratory exercise.

A section called "Study Skills for Anatomy and Physiology? is located in the front of this laboratory manual. This section was written by students enrolled in a Human Anatomy and Physiology course.

Critical Thinking Activities and Assessments are incorporated within most of the laboratory exercises to enhance valuable critical thinking skills that students need throughout their lives.

Cadaver images are incorporated with dissection labs.

The instructor will find digital assets for use in creating customized lectures, visually enhanced tests and quizzes, and other printed support material.

A correlation guide for Anatomy & Physiology Revealed? (APR) and the entire lab manual is available. Contact your McGraw-Hill Learning Technology Representative. Cadaver images from APR are included within many of the laboratory exercises.

Some unique labs included are "Scientific Method and Measurements,? "Chemistry of Life,? "Fetal Skeleton,? "Surface Anatomy,? "Diabetic Physiology,? "Metabolism,? and "Genetics."

The annotated instructor's guide for Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy and Physiology describes the purpose of the laboratory manual and its special features, provides suggestions for presenting the laboratory exercises to students, instructional approaches, a suggested time schedule, and annotated figures and assessments.

It contains a "Student Safety Contract? and a "Student Informed Consent Form."

Each laboratory exercise can be completed during a single laboratory session.

Learning outcomes with icons O have matching assessments with icons A so students can be sure they have accomplished the laboratory exercise content.

Outcomes and assessments include all levels of learning skills: remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate, and create.

Assessment rubrics for entire laboratory assessments are included in Appendix 2

Anatomy and Physiology Revealed 3.2 blends together detailed cadaver photos graphs with state-of-the-art layering technique to provide a uniquely interactive dissection experience. Cat and fetal pig versions are also available.

Physiology Interactive Lab Simulations (PHILS 4.0) is included with this lab manual. Eleven lab simulations with associated activities are located in Appendix 4, which a correlation guide is also included.

BIOPAC exercises are included on four different body systems. BIOPAC? systems use hardware and software for data acquisition, analysis, and recording of information for an individual.
