The Digital Frog 2.5
|Record number:||a1309 (legacy id: 4735)|
|Category:||Anatomy - Dissection - Physiology|
The interactive Digital Frog 2.5 allows students to perform a virtual frog dissection by using a digital scalpel. Students are not just shown how to perform a frog dissection. This virtual dissection program allows them to simulate the same cuts made in an actual dissection. Every step of the dissection is clearly illustrated with full-screen video to reinforce what they have just done. The interactive dissection is linked to a comprehensive anatomy and physiology section, with human anatomy comparison, to find both differences and similarities. More than 100 screens of anatomy are available and every major body system is covered in great detail, from overviews down to cellular division. The body systems are: Circulatory System; Control System; Digestive System; Endocrine System; Immune System; Nervous System; Respiratory System; and Urogenital System. The Anatomy module, with its animation, movies, photographs and in-depth text, links from the dissection, providing a close-at-hand resource as students work through the dissection. Animations and interactions allow students to see how the frog's body works, from blood pumping through the heart, to joints that can be built up and moved by the user. The ecology section reminds students that biology is the study of living organisms. The program also includes word definitions and spoken pronunciations on significant words. This version builds on technology advances with high resolution graphics, full screen video, animation, sounds, narration, in-depth text, still images and interactive quizzes. The CD includes: Overview; Dissection; Anatomy; Ecology; Comparison; What people are saying. Includes a Find feature allowing the user to quickly jump to the screen by typing in the topic of interest. All workbook materials are included, allowing the user to print just when it is needed. The Digital Frog 2.5 workbook acts as an study guide.
