Muscle Structure and Function Exam Tuesday
It would be a good idea to review the Interactive Biology Videos 041, 042, 043


I have attached the three presentations that I used in class.  Feel free to review them prior to your test on Wednesday.


Bone dehydration and demineralization lab due.


Quiz on the skeletal system.  I will point at a bone on the class skeleton and you write down the correct name.  The skull bones and vertebrae  will be included.


Find an article on a current "Human Biology" related topic.  Write a one full page summary/reaction.  Typed DS, 1" margins (do not push this).  Bring a copy of the article to turn in with your writing.  Plan on sharing in class on Wednesday.
