Explore Human Anatomy in 3D

BodyWorks 6.0 is a major upgrade to version 5.0 of the popular anatomy title, featuring many new and improved features designed to improve searching, assist student exploration and more. With 160 high-resolution images, of which more than 80 are rotating 3D models, this CD-ROM promises to pique studentsí interest.

Search capabilities now include searching by phonetics, body system, 3D model, educational tools or specific topics. A direct link to the BodyWorks Web site is integrated, giving access to a directory of related Web sites and updated medical articles. To give a better understanding of anatomy, a video classroom showcases 15 different anatomy presentations, and a glossary of anatomic terms and medical terminology add more depth to the program.

Education-specific features in BodyWorks 6.0 include multimedia lessons, quizzes, and correct pronunciation of more than 1,400 terms. The software lets one print any screen, and will even censor anatomically correct models for the younger students. The Learning Company, Inc., Cambridge, MA, (800) 227-5609, www.learningco.com.
