A & P II Study Guide
Each topic listed below (with the exception of "Background") consists of several parts.
"Objectives" - A broad summary of the information found in the unit. They are the major concepts to be learned. They may serve as a basis for make-up exams.
"Homework" - This section includes homework questions you should answer and Latin/Greek terms you should know before coming to class. The more knowledge you bring to class, the better you will understand the material. You must use this manual, your textbook, and a dictionary to complete many of the questions. The questions may be optional and are intended to improve your knowledge prior to covering a topic in class. Generally they will not be graded but sometimes a quiz over the questions may be given.
"Outline" - A detailed listing of the information you are responsible for generally written in narrative form for ease of study. Links to figures are found throughout the outline. These are drawings intended to support and clarify the material in the outline. Think of the figures as the basis for the course and the outline explaning the figures.
"Activities" - Additional hands-on exercises intended to involve you in active learning. The activities will clarify and reinforce your learning. Not all units include activities. Many of the activities are optional unless specified otherwise. Links to the activities are found in the outlines.
