Features and Benefits
Newly written narrative makes the text more accessible for a wider range of students.
New “Spotlight” feature combines art and text to communicate physiological, organizational, or clinical information in a visually effective, student-friendly format.
New “Flagship” figures showcase both complex anatomical figures and complex physiological figures.
Learning Outcomes now tagged to questions in the Test Bank and in MasteringA&P, helping teachers assess students against outcomes.
Full-sentence chapter headings do more than introduce new topics: They state the core fact or concept that will be presented in the section. These numbered chapter headings are directly correlated to the numbered Learning Outcomes found on the chapter-opening page, making it easy for students to “see,” navigate through, and learn the chapter content.
Checkpoints are located at predictable points throughout the chapter and close out each major topic. Each Checkpoint checks student understanding of important facts and/or concepts according to what students most need to remember from the section in the chapter. The Checkpoints reinforce the Learning Outcomes listed on the chapter-opening page, resulting in a systematic integration of the Learning Outcomes over the course of the chapter. Students can check their understanding of the Checkpoint questions against the answers located at the end of the book.
The end-of-chapter Review Questions, organized by level of difficulty, ensure that students know basic facts before concepts, and concepts before applications. The three levels are carried over into the Study Guide and MasteringA&P.
Tips & Tricks boxes are brief and concrete learning tools that give students simple analogies and easy memory devices to help them remember facts and concepts.
Concept Links, signaled with blue arrow icons, alert students to material that is related to, or builds upon, previous discussions. Each link refers students to a page number for quickly reviewing the relevant material from an earlier chapter.
End-of-chapter 3-level learning system helps build student confidence and understanding through a logical progression from factual questions (Level 1) to conceptual problems (Level 2) to analytical exercises (Level 3). The variety of questions also gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework from the text.
The MasteringA&P™ reference at the end of every chapter shows students which MasteringA&P resources can help them review key chapter material on their own. Within the MasteringA&P box are references to chapter-specific material, including MP3 Tutor Sessions, Interactive Physiology® 10-System Suite (IP-10) tutorials, and A&P Flix™ 3-D animations.
Clinical Notes appear within every chapter, expand upon topics just discussed, and present diseases and pathologies along with their relationship to normal function. These Clinical Notes relate directly to what students will encounter in their future careers.
Related Clinical Terms appear at the end of every chapter and present additional clinical terms and definitions relevant to the chapter topic.
Each new Student Edition includes single-student access to MasteringA&P with Pearson eText for the life of the adoption. Student Edition package also includes Interactive Physiology 10-System Suite CD-ROM and Atlas of the Human Body.
