I actually do not split up systems. My partner and I cover each other's weaknesses, though, admittedly, I typically carry this event. :?
Even if I did split with a partner, I wouldn't trust them to do it all (well, except one girl on my team but she likes Astronomy, which is at the same time as Anatomy. Thus we'll never be partners in this.) and end up doing all the work myself. :? Working alone was satisfying though. I was the only one in two rooms of 20+ kids each taking the test alone. The proctor made a big deal about it and congratulated me on my . . . bravery. I was just happy to be without a partner to argue over the answers with. If I succeeded or failed it would be entirely because of me. I wouldn't have an excuse. That's what I liked about doing it alone.
I doubt they would have done anything had she appealed. I had the same thing happen to me at States -- stuff on an Anatomy test that shouldn't have been on there -- although not quite to that extent. They denied the appeal because all the teams would have been at the same disadvantage with the extraneous questions (ofc, this is assuming that everybody only studied exactly what was on the rules and didn't look at anything else relating to Anatomy).
That's exactly what happened to us (I didn't appeal of course. I just spent the rest of the day whining about the test proctor). I talked to some of the other A&P kids, and they were really upset too. The ones who won obviously had a really broad knowledge of the subject. I've learned my lesson (don't count on the rules too heavily because some test proctors are too lazy to follow them) and will study a more broad range of material next year. Oh well. It was quite disappointing though. I was ridiculously prepared, and I think I'd be bumped up to at least 4th place had the test covered muscle ID. *sigh*

The reason I split it up for Anatomy was that I trusted my partner deeply, and he proved me right.

...and watch them somehow throw urinary at you :P
Nah. Not going to happen.
They randomly did that one year-I wouldn't necessarily get your hopes up too high

At regionals, my partner and I placed 6th. We moved on to State. At State, we got 3rd! Surprisingly, we did better then Muscatel (notorious for winning State the past few years). :lol:

How odd. Congrats!

Hey guys, I'm working on my cheatsheet and I don't really know what else to put on it. :? Anyone have any suggestions? I have about 1/3 of a page left to fill up.

I don't know about your tests, but here in SoCal, we were faced with a lot of questions about the type of muscle (skeletal, smooth, cardiac) or the type of injury that took place. Weirdly enough, we were asked what R.I.C.E. stands for. :lol: Make sure you put as many pics as you can.

We'd appreciate if you told us what you already have on it so we can help you cover your bases.

Wow, you guys respond really fast in here. I've got a diagram on joints, the muscle functions, the characters of muscle tissue, a chart on the different muscle types, a picture of that, a diagram of a sarcromere, 3 muscle diagrams (cross sectional thingys), some vocab on muscle parts, sliding filament model process, the effects of exercise on the muscular system, the injuries of the muscular system, a diagram on the pulmonary capacities, a large chunk of text on the organs in the respiratory system, how gas exchange works, functions of the respiratory system, a diagram of the respiratory system, breathing patterns, the effects of exercise on the respiratory system, pulmonary ventilation things, charts on the diseases mentioned, a lot of muscle diagrams, and all the muscle names and function.

Wow, that was a large sentence.

I suggest you add origin and insertion each muscle muscles, along with anything in the rules you think you might have left out.

Nice work though! Very through. You seem ready!
