A supplementary laboratory manual to accompany Top Hat's Anatomy and Physiology in Context interactive textbook. It covers 19 topics and includes a pre-lab and activities, most of which are suitable for online delivery, for each module.
Welcome to Anatomy and Physiology in Context - Lab Manual!
Hi there! Welcome to Top Hat's interactive Anatomy and Physiology in Context - Lab Manual! We hope you have a great experience with this course and our manual. To start, we would like to introduce you to some of our features so that you are comfortable with your new lab manual.
Among the things you will frequently encounter in our texts are embedded questions. Depending on your professor, these may be graded for participation or correctness. There are six types of questions we have to offer, plus discussion-style questions. Let's take a look at one of each:
1) Multiple Choice: Simply click on the correct answer and then click "Check My Answer". If there is more than one correct answer, it will be specified in the question.
Which of the following is not a function of the skeleton?
Support and attachment
Blood cell formation
Sodium ion homeostasis
2) Word Answer: Just type your answer into the textbox and click "Check My Answer".
This is a textbook written about anatomy and _________
3) Numeric Answer: As the name suggests, these questions require an answer that is a number.
How many bones make up the adult human skeleton?
4) Matching Question: Click on an item in the left-hand column, and then click and drag its match in the right-hand column to align them. The remaining options in the right-hand column will reshuffle.
Match each bone with its corresponding part of the body.
5) Click on Target Question: These questions will be accompanied by an image. You must click on the correct part of the picture. Sometimes, multiple clicks will be allowed. Often you will find that the images in these questions will have "hotspots" or targets on them. Make sure when you submit your answer that your selection is over the hotspot so you get credit if your answer is correct.
Click on the hotspot pointing to the heart.
6) Sorting Question: Drag the options into the proper order.
Sort these structures from smallest to largest.
7) Discussion Question: These are long-form, typed responses that are submitted and read by your professor.
What is the importance of the epiglottis during swallowing?
8) File Submission Question: These are questions that require you to upload a document. The file types that are accepted are shown in the question box.
Throughout the book you will also find interactive 3D models of body parts, systems, or organs. You will be able to interact with these models in a number of ways, giving you a visual tool to support the anatomical learning in each chapter.
Try exploring the 3D model below.
Can you rotate the skeleton to see the back view? Can you get the label for one of the femurs to pop up? How about zooming out until you can see all the bones of the foot?
Here's a deep dive into the ways you can interact with these models. By clicking the circle with the three dots in the bottom right corner, you can access:
Zoom: Using the "+" and "-" icons, you can zoom in and out of the model.
Pan/Rotate: Click on the icon to either pan or 3D rotate the model. The icon will change depending on whether you are currently in "pan" mode or "orbit" mode. Then, just click and drag to move the model accordingly.
Recenter: Using the "bullseye" icon, the image can be recentered in the middle of the screen.
Fullscreen: By clicking the icon with the two arrows, the 3D model will open in fullscreen in a new window.
Help: For full navigation instructions across a range of devices, hit the "?" icon.
We would love to hear your feedback about the text! We take every comment into consideration when thinking about how to make the text better, and regularly release updates based on what we hear from you.
At the end of every chapter, there is a survey like the one pictured to the right that you can fill out to ask questions, or report any issues. This survey is entirely optional and the responses are sent to Top Hat, not your professor.
Finally, we're here to help. If you experience any issues with your Top Hat text, please reach out to our friendly support team at firstname.lastname@example.org or check out our student support pages here.
Good luck, and we hope you have a great year!
