Practical, active learning exercises with a visual approach

Visual Anatomy & Physiology Lab Manual (Stephen Sarikas) brings all of the strengths of the revolutionary Visual Anatomy & Physiology textbook (Martini/Ober/Nath/Bartholomew/Petti) to the lab. The 2nd Edition builds upon the visual approach and modular organization with new features to better prepare you for lab, maximize yout learning, and reinforce important concepts. With an emphasis on clear, easy to follow figures (from the Martini Visual A&P text),frequent practice, and helping you make connections, the manual provides you with the powerful tools you need to excel.


The two-page lab activity modules seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide you through lab activities—with no page flipping. Lab practice consists of hands-on activities and assignable content in Mastering  A&P, including new pre-lab quizzes, Review Sheets, and virtual lab study tools.


Also available with Mastering A&P

Mastering  A&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn in lab by assigning content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics. Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. 


Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; Mastering™ A&P does not come packaged with this content. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with Mastering A&P, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID.
