This event is usually done as stations that teams rotate through, though it can also be set up as a sit down test with more in depth case studies. Teams may be viewing any combination of models, pictures, diagrams/charts, or recorded/written descriptions. They will then be asked to answer questions (multiple choice, fill in the blank, short answer, etc) related to the samples including but not limited to: basic anatomy identification, related diseases and conditions, making observations, inferences, predictions, calculations, analyses and conclusions. The systems for the 2019 tournament season are the Cardiovascular, Lymphatic, and Excretory systems.
Each team may bring one 8.5” x 11” sheet of paper that may contain information on both sides in any form and from any source along with two stand-alone non-programmable, non-graphing calculators.
High score wins. Predetermined questions and the quality of free-response answers will be used to break ties.
– The topics to be covered are clearly outlined in the official rules. Write these topics out and make notes as you study each area.
– For each area, make sure basic anatomy can be identified both in a diagram and on a model.
– Have a definitions page to study from for each topic area for tricky terms.
