Here is what you will see on the final examination. There are 10 essay questions to answer. They are to be answered by outline or diagram as appropriate or mentioned below. Some outlines will include both. I am more than willing to cover any question and its expectations during office hours. Please wait on going over essay questions until we have actually covered the topic and you can ask intelligent questions. 3 or 4 of these questions will be given on the final for 25 to 50 points each.
1. List and describe the characteristics of life
2. If given the atomic mass and atomic number state the number of neutrons, protons, electrons, ionization, bonding tendency, and electron configuration.
3. Outline the causes, histology, and treatments for cancer. Include the limitations and mitigations for each treatment, drug types, cell stage, and action of at least five drugs.
4. List and describe the layers of the skin. Include the cell types, chemical composition, and glands for both the dermis and epidermis.
5. Outline the process of endochondral ossification.
6. Outline and diagram the events of skeletal muscle contraction.
7. Digest and absorb a cheeseburger. Include the areas, enzymes, enzyme functions, physical processes of digestion, and the specifics of fat transport.
8. Outline the process of the catabolism of glucose. Include the area, starting and ending products, oxygen requirements, and the amount of ATP produced.
9. Outline the menstrual cycle. Include in your answer the glands, hormones, days, and changes in the endometrium for each stage.
10. Label the early embryonic development of a human. Include the approximate age and the germ layer derivatives.
