Description

For the two-semester A&P course.

This package does not include Mastering A&P.

 

Provide a learner-centered approach to the study of A&P

 

Human Anatomy & Physiology speaks to the way today’s diverse students learn and study. In the 2nd Edition, author Erin Amerman strengthens her distinctive learner-centered approach by focusing on three unique pillars. First, Amerman uses art to present one-concept-at-a-time before bringing the distinct parts together in one summarizing Big Picture figure. Second, Amerman coaches students right when they need it, beginning on page 51 where the opening module titled How To Succeed in Your Anatomy & Physiology Course appears. And finally, she provides students with ample opportunities to practice and develop critical-thinking skills through questions about case studies and real-world scenarios.

 

Mastering A&P includes Concept Boost Video Tutors and new Big Picture Animations, which feature Amerman guiding students through the most complex A&P concepts. The text and Mastering A&P work together to engage today’s students.

 

Reach every student by pairing this text with Mastering A&P

 About the Book

 

Prepares students for the rigor of A&P

  • Page 51 begins with a unique Module 1.1 How to Succeed in Your Anatomy and Physiology Course, which coaches students on how to manage time, how to take notes, how to study for an A&P exam and how to use the textbook, companion workbook, and online tools.
  • Core Principles of feedback loops, structure and function, gradients, and cell-cell communication introduced in chapter one and highlighted throughout the book, show students their role in maintaining homeostasis.
  • Flashback Questions encourage students to think about previously learned concepts they will need to apply in order to understand upcoming discussions.

Coaches students through key challenging A&P concepts

  • EXPANDED! 10 new or revised Concept Boosts (now over 40 throughout the book) anticipate where students need extra help and provide just-in-time coaching on A&P concepts that are difficult or tricky. They often incorporate familiar analogies and simple illustrations, giving students a boost to fully understanding the content. Several Concept Boosts are offered as Concept Boost Video Tutors. Videos include:
    • Chapter 3: Understanding Water Movement in Osmosis
    • Chapter 10:  How Do Positive Ions Create a Negative Resting Membrane Potential?
    • Chapter 16:  Understanding the Relationship between Negative Feedback Loops and Thyroid Function
    • Chapter 21:  Making Sense of the Oxygen-Hemoglobin Dissociation Curve
    • Chapter 25: How Can Respiratory Changes Compensate for Metabolic Acidosis?
  • EXPANDED! Features within the text offer additional student support:
    • In-text simple illustrations appear as needed to help students visualize concepts being described.
    • Study Boosts provide study tips or mnemonics for remembering tricky anatomical structures
    • Media Call-outs throughout the Amerman textbook direct students to corresponding animations, tutorials, and videos to help reinforce their learning.

Visually unpacks information to help students focus on key details

  • NEW and REVISED! One-concept-at-a-time art focuses on teaching one concept per figure so that students can instantly grasp the key idea without being distracted by a sea of details. For key physiology concepts, unique sequence figures unpack information so that each scene contains only the most important information.
  • NEW and REVISED! Big Picture Figures visually summarize key physiological processes and anatomy concepts, helping students see how the distinct parts work as a whole. 5 additional Big Picture figures have been transformed into new Big Picture Animations.

Develops critical thinking skills

  • Apply What You Learned questions ask students to think critically and apply what they’ve just learned to a real-world scenario.
  • EXPANDED and REVISED! A&P in the Real World boxes highlight clinical conditions and disorders that illustrate and apply key A&P concepts discussed in the chapter.
