A Visual Approach to Two-Semester A&P Lab

The highly anticipated Visual Anatomy & Physiology Lab Manual (Stephen Sarikas) brings all of the strengths of the revolutionary Visual Anatomy & Physiology book (Martini/Ober/Nath/Bartholomew/Petti) to the lab. This lab manual combines a visual approach with a modular organization to maximize learning. The lab practice consists of hands-on activities in the lab manual and assignable content in MasteringA&P®.

This program presents a better teaching and learning experience by providing:
  • Personalized learning with MasteringA&P: Become engaged with assignable lab activities that help them visualize structures and understand processes–all automatically graded.
  • A visual approach and modular organization: The two-page modules seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide your through lab activities–with no page flipping.
  • Frequent practice: Opportunities for practice include pre-lab questions (Before You Begin, Consider This), post-lab questions (Review Sheets), pencil-to-paper activities (clearly marked with a black triangle), and critical thinking questions (Making Connections). You have the opportunity to practice online with MasteringA&P.
  • Learning Outcomes that tightly coordinate with lab activities: The clean one-to-one correspondence between the numbered exercise-opening Learning Outcomes and the numbered two-page lab activity modules gives you an easy-to-follow learning path and instructors an easy vehicle for assessment.
