This lab-only course is designed as a standalone addition to StraighterLine's Anatomy & Physiology II course. Students will complete at home laboratory experiments, track and record results and take lab-based questions reflected in the graded lab reports, and complete lab-based assessments to meet the lab requirement. The labs are provided by eScience Labs, a leading provider of at home lab kits and supplemental online materials. This course will give the student a solid foundation for further study into laboratory sciences.

Please note: This lab course involves dissections of both tissue and animal specimens.

Information about the required lab kit is available in the "Course Text" tab below.

    This class was really good in conjunction with Anatomy & Physiology II. The projects and assignments really helped me cement the new concepts & understand them better.

    So much easier to complete on a PC. My home computer is a mac. I really wish straigherline would invest in reformatting their assignments to be compatible.

    This course held some interesting information and materials. The only thing I wish they had was more step by step dissection pictures to help with the process.
