   ALL topics

Week One Assignment: The essay must be two pages long double spaced, 12pt
and 1 inch margin with standard APA

Part 1

There are several parts to this iLab. Part 1 consists of listing all the parts of the digestive
system with either a list or photo. Many people take a "screen shot" and use this for part
one. Feel free to also list the parts as well if you cannot figure out how to take a screen

Part 2

Part 2 technically consists of two parts. The first one includes describing the location of each
body part. For example, the appendix is located on the right side of the body under the
ascending colon. Another way to do this part would be to write out the parts and put a
location/description next to it. The second part of part 2 or this section is to describe the
manner in which you will retain the information of where each body part is located. An
example would be, "I will remember the location of each body part by reviewing the photo
and memorizing each location". Some classmates develop interesting methods of
memorizing where all of the parts are located like using mnemonics. Feel free to be

Part 3

Part 3 in a Word document (or the same document that you have bee using for parts 1 and
2), please take the overall categories (mouth, small intestine, esophagus, stomach, and
large intestine) and label them with the appropriate mechanisms that occur in each of them
(propulsion, absorption, chemical digestion and mechanical digestion). Please remember
that each digestive system part mentioned above may be involved in more than one of the

Part 4

Part 4 please define each mechanism (propulsion, absorption, chemical digestion and
mechanical digestion) with 2-3 sentences each.
