A&P 1: The Spring '05 Anatomy & Physiology Club - page 15

Ok, no one has started this yet, so I guess I will. I start A&P I on January 18th, lab and lecture. Here are a few good websites I have found...some are basic, some may be more indepth than your... Read More

    anyone have any tips to be able to identify slides of tissue? We have quizes where we look at slides on a screen and have to identify what it is.
    The best way I find to do it is to find one distinguishing factor that separates that tissue from the others and focus only on remembering that particular factor. This technique has done quite well for me. Hope this helps.

    Well,I started anatomy on Tuesday.I posted about the substitute situation.I emailed the dean of insruction and he is forwarding my complaint to the science dean.Last night the sub couldnt work the powerpoint the teacher had left.So,she attempted to teach.There were a few time students had to correct her or she answered "I dont know"
    We are using Martinis text.I spent about 6 hours on chapter 1.
    I took out my daughter's barbie and that helped me visualize with the planes,directions.You should have seen the look on her face when she saw me with her naked barbie!:chuckle
    Anybody using Martini?Im going to dive into ch 2 (cells..yuck!)Any tricks to remember?We havent had lab yet.
    Any of you have the same luck as me with teachers?
    Im hanging in there.:uhoh21:

    Skeletal - individual bones (femur, humerus, etc.)

    Lymphatic - spleen tonsils
    Integumentary - skin, nails

    Muscle: As long as you know you're looking at muscle tissue then:
    Smooth has oval nuclei, and they are in the middle of the cell.
    Cardiac has intercalated disc, round nuclei in the middle of the cell.
    Skeletal has lots of nuclei towards the sides of the cells.

    On our slide, Dense Irregular Connective Tissue looks like wet crepe paper, or strawberry yogert slightly mixed with plain yogart.

    Bone looks like rings of a tree.

    Again, on our slides, Fibrocartilage looks like fuzz with dots, or cotton candy.

    Hyaline cartilage looks like it has tips of rosebuds for cells.

    I'm not sure if this really helps to remember, but possibly to help identify. However, it all depends on what you are looking at. Google histology images, and quiz yourself.....the more you look at different tissue types, the more you will remember what they are. (My problem now is remembering what the function is, and where they are found.)

    Back to studying I go

    hello all!
    Great job to everyone that has done well on the first exams!! I have to brag a bit-- my first lecture test is this week BUT it's available in the testing center from Wed. until Sat at noon!! can you believe it?? I can pick the day and time--yahoo! I am not generally a morning type so I'll probably take it after lab on Thursday.
    Already there are people not showing up for class. the prof gives out his notes, but he adds to it--I hope the absent ones know what their doing-good luck with the "show up for the exam" method- hahahaha
    I hope everyone is well out there- I've been trying to fight off the cough/congestion for the past few days.- thank goodness for NYQUIL.
    Have a great week- I'm going to try to get in some studying while kiddos play computer game- if they can keep from fighting for 5 minutes!

    Our lecture exams are in the testing center as well, with a few days to take them. I have no idea when the first one will be, but I have been studying my gluteals off! :lol_hitti

    I have studied all day, and now it is after 4PM, so I'm getting ready to go out with my hubby. :beercuphe My kiddos are staying with my mom, so it will be a nice nice night out to relax, and not think about tissues and directional terms. haha (I wonder if I will think about the digestive system, muscular system, and urinary system with each drink!!!?????!!!)

    Of course, the way my mind is, I see things and relate it to something I have been studying...rain drops on the window: either recticular tissue, adipose, or etc...depending on when I see them on the window. LOL ...and of course I can't think "it's on top or to the side" I think it's "superior or lateral to".

    In a way, I guess it's good, I'm learning.....weird ways, but I am. lol

    Again, good luck to everyone! :icon_hug: :kiss

    Fun2care--have bunches of fun & relax. enjoy the night out!!!

    My gluteals are sore already!! hahaha

    You motivate me--I really need to arrange a "date night" we received a gift card to PF Changs--(don't know who is familiar with it-but it's a very nice and tasty chinese restaurant) for Christmas & haven't been yet. I need to call my Dad and ask for some babysitting.

    Have a wonderful evening!!

    Can I join your club? I am in A&P right now and could really use the support.

    But I must have gotten that deer in the headlights look the past two classes when we started the cells lecture.:chuckle
    We did that in my previous bio class, so we aren't doing it in A&P. Thank goodness, because I agree, that cell stuff is confusing!

    Do some online searches. My class is online, but I've been to some really great websites where I can look at all different kinds of tissues and cells. I ended up taking the practice test and getting 100% by learning the descriptions and studying pics. Good luck!
