BIO111L Anatomy & Physiology I with Terminology LAB

This course is part one of a two-part comprehensive laboratory course accompanying the Anatomy and Physiology lecture course, designed to focus on aspects of the interrelationship of each body system. Laboratory exercises will includes basic chemistry, physics, cell structure, cell physiology, metabolism, tissues, and integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, and endocrine systems as it relates to the human anatomy and its physiology. The laboratory component of this course provides students with hands-on experiences, as opposed to using only workbook and/or computer-generated activities that could be done in a non-laboratory setting. Laboratory activities should encourage critical thinking, the understanding of scientific methodology, and the application of scientific principles.
