Description

For one-semester courses in anatomy & physiology.
 

Guiding students through challenging A&P concepts

Celebrated for its precise illustrations, time-saving navigation and study tools, and engaging clinical content, Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology is crafted especially for students with no prior knowledge of anatomy & physiology and little science background. The 7th Edition eases students through tough A&P topics, answering the need to help A&P students learn and retain challenging content in the fast-paced one-semester A&P course. New book features, all supported by interactive Mastering A&P media, include new Build Your Knowledge activities, new Spotlight Figures Coaching activities, new Bone and Organ Dissection Videos, and new Dynamic Study Modules that help students study on the go.

ABOUT THE BOOK

 

Teaching the toughest topics

  • Build Your Knowledge sections coach students through the toughest part of A&P–physiology. These sections refer back to previously learned concepts to remind students of what they already know before introducing new information. Sections appear throughout the chapter and feature corresponding Reading Questions and Coaching Activities in MasteringA&P.
  • Spotlight Figures provide highly visual one- and two-page presentations of tough topics in the book, with a particular focus on physiology, that combine brief text and related figures and photos to communicate information in a visually effective and student-friendly format. In the Seventh Edition, there is now at least one Spotlight Figure in every chapter along with a correlating new Coaching Activity in MasteringA&P.

MasteringA&P not included. Students, if MasteringA&P is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. MasteringA&P should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.


MasteringA&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics.

  • Build Your Knowledge Concept Map Coaching activities complement “capstone” Build Your Knowledge sections that appear at the end of each body system to help students understand how body systems work together.
  • Build Your Knowledge reading questions are based on Build Your Knowledge sections in the text that appear throughout each chapter. Reading questions ensure that students have the background knowledge needed to work more deeply with new content presented in the chapter.
  • Spotlight Figure Coaching Activities bring interactivity to Spotlight Figures from every chapter in the text.  These highly visual, interactive, multi-part activities include ranking and sorting questions.
  • Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Here's how it works: students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that also asks them to indicate their confidence level. Questions repeat until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, Dynamic Study Modules explain the concept using materials from the text. With 50 Questions for every chapter, these are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers.
  • Clinical Notes Reading Questions introduce some of the diseases and disorders students will encounter in their future healthcare careers.
  • Bone and Dissection Video Coaching Activities review the major bones and organ dissections and are supported with assignable activities that include hints and specific wrong-answer feedback.
  • eText 2.0
    • Now available on smartphones and tablets.
    • Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media.
    • Accessible (screen-reader ready).
    • Configurable reading settings, including resizable type and night reading mode.
    • Instructor and student note-taking, highlighting, bookmarking, and search.
  • UPDATED! Art-Based Questions are conceptual questions related to art that coach students with wrong-answer feedback.
  • UPDATED! Art Labeling and Ranking/Sorting Questions are drag-and-drop activities that allow students to assess their knowledge of terms and structures as well as the order of steps and elements involved in physiological processes.

 

Features & benefits

Teaching the toughest topics

  • NEW! Build Your Knowledge sections coach students through the toughest part of A&P—physiology. These sections refer back to previously learned concepts to remind students of what they already know before introducing new information. Sections appear throughout the chapter and feature corresponding Reading Questions and Coaching Activities in Mastering A&P.
  • NEW! Spotlight Figures provide highly visual one- and two-page presentations of tough topics in the book, with a particular focus on physiology, that combine brief text and related figures and photos to communicate information in a visually effective and student-friendly format. In the 7th Edition, there is now at least one Spotlight Figure in every chapter along with a correlating new Coaching Activity in Mastering A&P.
  • Streamlined 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.

 

Award-winning art and photo program:

  • Side-by-Side Figures provide students with multiple views of the same structure, typically pairing an artist's drawing with a cadaver or histology photograph. This approach allows students to compare the illustrator’s rendering with a photo of the actual structure as it may be seen in the laboratory or operating room.
  • Step-by-Step Figures break down multifaceted processes into numbered step-by-step illustrations that coordinate with the authors’ narrative descriptions.
  • Macro-to-Micro Figures help students to bridge the gap between familiar and unfamiliar structures of the body by sequencing anatomical views from whole organs or other structures to their smaller parts. A typical illustration might combine a simple orientation diagram (indicating where an organ or structure is located in the human body) with a large, vivid illustration of that organ or other structure, a corresponding cross-sectional view, and a photomicrograph.
  • Illustration-over-Photo Figures, in addition to being visually dramatic with their 3D effects, teach realistic body proportions and structure placement.

 

Time-saving navigation and study tools:

  • Learning Outcomes on each chapter-opening page and under the main headings within the chapter indicate to students what they should be able to do after studying the chapter. The Learning Outcomes are coordinated by number to the chapter headings, allowing students to check their understanding by both Learning Outcomes and chapter topics. .
  • Full-sentence chapter headings not only introduce new topics, they also state the core fact or concept that will be presented in the chapter 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.
  • Checkpoint questions appear at the end of each section, closing 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 instantly compare their responses to these questions against the answers located at the back of the book.
  • 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 question types also gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework from the text.

 

Readability and visual effectiveness:

  • Effective figure organisation makes figures easier for students to understand and study. Figure titles are located consistently at the top of each figure, to introduce it, and figure part captions are now located immediately underneath their respective figure parts for effective text-art integration and easy reading. Many figures have also been reorganised to chunk information into clearer steps in order to guide students through complex processes.
  • Build Your Knowledge System Integrators appear at the end of each body system to reinforce student understanding of the interconnection across all body systems.
  • Easy-to-read tables organise information clearly for efficient studying.
