Module III Summative Assessment
This assessment will check how well you have learned the concepts in this Module.  It will be graded.
This assessment will require a password from your teacher and must be taken at school. 

All assessments for this unit/module must be completed before beginning the next moduule.  Assessments should be taken in science class.
Take your Summative test before going on to the next Module!
Duchenne Muscular Distrophy
Get a microscope and look at slides of MUSCLE tissue (smooth, cardiac, and skeletal) under low, medium, and high powers.  Draw a picture if you like.

Module III Checklist
The Awesome Arm Lab
Lab Timer
I can demonstrate the flow of blood through the heart.
I am done with Module III when ...
I can identify smooth, skeletal, and cardiac muscle tissue under a microscope and state the function of each.
I can identify the component parts of a muscle: fascicle, myofibril, fiber, nucleus of cell, body of muscle.
I can identify the major muscles of the human body.
I can analyze experimental data using the Moving Arm Model and interpret the meaning of the data.
I have visited every activity in this Module and evaluated it for its usefulness to me. 
I have placed the most important things on my science website portfolio including study guides, images, and summaries. 
I have completed the Summative Assessment.
