26 Unit 3 Project For this project, you will find a medical scenario to translate into layman’s terms when defining the conditions and treatments. In the second part of this project, you will find a minimum of 15 medical terms and split them into word roots, prefixes, and suffixes. Define each term. Part 1: Translate the medical scenario as you would to a patient. Part 2: Pick out the medical terms within this scenario and use the provided columns (in the project template) to split them into word roots, prefixes & suffixes, singular and plural endings. Additionally, use the last column to define each term. Submitting Your Project Put your project in a Word document. Save it in a location and with the proper naming convention: username-HS111-section-unit3 project.doc (username is your Kaplan username, section is your course section). When you are ready to submit it, go to the dropbox and complete the steps below: Click the link that says "Submit an Assignment".
