Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Authors Cynthia Prentice-Craver and Terry Martin combine passion for and experience teaching human anatomy and physiology with a commitment to developing curricula that stimulates student curiosity and enthusiasm, which results in a laboratory manual with an innovative, hands-on approach. The Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology includes 63 laboratory exercises, three supplemental labs found online, six cat dissection labs, six fetal pig dissection labs, 46 Virtual Lab lessons, and 13 Physiology Interactive Lab Simulations (PhILS) lessons. Designed to work well with any anatomy and physiology text, this updated fifth edition of the lab manual incorporates learning outcomes and assessments to help students master important material. A clear, concise writing style facilitates more thorough understanding of lab exercises.

About the Author

Cynthia Prentice-Craver

Cynthia Prentice-Craver has been teaching human anatomy and physiology for over twenty-eight years at Chemeketa Community College. Cynthia’s teaching experience both in grades 6–12 and in college, her passion for curriculum development, and her appetite for learning fuel her desire to write. Her M.S. in Curriculum and Instruction, B.S. in Exercise Science, and extended graduate course-work in biological sciences have been instrumental in achieving effective results in the online and on campus courses she teaches. Cynthia was a contributing author for the Martin Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology, Third Edition, and Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology, Fourteenth Edition. She co-authored Hole’s Human Anatomy & Physiology, Sixteenth Edition, and the Martin Laboratory Manual for Human Anatomy & Physiology, Fourth and Fifth Editions, and authored the digital content for these laboratory manuals. Cynthia is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the Textbook & Academic Authors Association (TAA). Her professional experiences include serving as a program chair for eight years, developing curriculum, serving on various committees, and being a reviewer and advisor of textbooks and digital products.
