Back to the Drawing Board Reconstructing DaVinci's Vitruvian Man to Teach Anatomy
Babaian, C.
American Biology Teacher, v71 n4 p205-208 Apr 2009
In today's high tech world, one hardly expects to see the original chalkboard or blackboard utilized in research, teaching, or scientific communication, but having spent an equal number of years doing both art and biology and dabbling in computer graphics, the author has found the simple technology of the chalkboard and chalk to have incredible flexibility and potential for teaching almost any subject in biology. In this article, the author demonstrates and discusses the use of Leonardo DaVinci's Vitruvian Man in teaching introductory anatomy through the blackboard. (Contains 5 figures.)
