Description

Using Art Effectively with the Most Visual Approach to A&P

Visual Anatomy & Physiology combines a one-of-a-kind visual approach with a modular organisation that uniquely meets the needs of today’s students—without sacrificing the comprehensive coverage of A&P topics required for careers in nursing and other allied health professions.

The 3rd Edition presents key new features based on recent research about how students use and digest visual information. New modules in the first chapter emphasise how to use art effectively when studying; new Integrated Figure Questions increases the likelihood that students will spend time viewing the art and prompts them to consider what they have just learned; and new SmartArt Videos, accessible via QR code in the book, help students navigate key, complex pieces of art on some of the toughest topics.

About the Book

·    A new emphasis on using art more effectively informs multiple changes to layout and figure organization, as well as a new system of integrated figure prompts and questions, helping ensure that students view and navigate the art more efficiently and effectively to enhance learning.

·    Modules 1.1 – 1.5 introduce students to the importance of studying the art in the book and then guides them through how to study the figures in the text.

·    Everyday Physiology features are sprinkled throughout the text to help students see connections to real-life applications.

·    Learning Outcomes Correlation booklet matches the Learning Outcomes in the textbook to the recommended HAPS Learning Outcomes. Instructors can use this reference tool to quickly see where a given topic is covered, and to what degree.

 

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

 

●    Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules help instructors efficiently navigate a robust suite of content and high impact resources for the toughest topics. A curated selection of the most effective before-class assignments, in-class activities, and after-class assignments are provided for ease of use. Instructors can incorporate active learning into their course with the suggested activity ideas and clicker questions or Learning Catalytics questions.

●    SmartArt Videos help students better navigate key, complex pieces of art. Author Kevin Petti brings his expertise in anatomical art to narrate explanatory videos that walk students through select pieces from the book, providing additional context and detail. The videos can be accessed via QR codes in the book and offer accompanying assignments through Mastering A&P.

●    Mobile-ready Interactive Physiology 2.0 helps students advance beyond memorization to a genuine understanding of complex physiological processes. Full-color animations and videos demonstrate difficult concepts to reinforce the material. IP 2.0 features brand new graphics, quicker navigation, and more robust mobile-ready interactivities where students can explore, experiment, and predict. New IP 2.0 modules include: Resting Membrane Potential, Electrical Activity of the Heart, Cardiac Output, Factors Affecting Blood Pressure, Generation of an Action Potential, and Cardiac Cycle.

●    All of the assignments from Sarikas’ Visual Anatomy and Physiology Lab Manual, 2nd Edition are now included as part of Visual Anatomy & Physiology Mastering course. Students and instructors only need one Mastering A&P code to access assignments from both the book and lab manual.

●    Dynamic Study Modules help students study effectively on their own by continuously assessing their activity and performance in real time. Students complete a set of questions with a unique answer format that repeats until the student can answer them all correctly and confidently. Once completed, these are available as graded assignments prior to class, and accessible on smartphones, tablets, and computers. New for the 3rd Edition, instructors can now select which questions to assign to students.

●    A redesigned Mastering A&P Study Area features new, mobile-friendly navigation and offers students additional practice test questions, reading quiz questions, flashcards, Get Ready for A&P tutorials, and more.

●    Learning Catalytics helps instructors generate class discussion, adapt lessons to students’ needs, and promote peer-to-peer learning using real-time analytics. As a student response tool, Learning Catalytics uses students’ smartphones, tablets, or laptops to engage them in more interactive tasks and to practice critical thinking skills.  Real-time data allows instructors to immediately respond when learners are struggling and to quickly assign students into groups for optimal class discussion, teamwork, and peer-to-peer learning.

o NEW! Instructors can upload a full PowerPoint® deck for easy creation of slide questions.

o NEW! Team names are no longer case sensitive.

Features & benefits
  • An emphasis on using art more effectively informs multiple changes to layout and figure organisation, as well as a new system of integrated figure prompts and questions, helping ensure that students view and navigate the art more efficiently and effectively to enhance learning.
  • Modules 1.1 – 1.5 introduce students to the importance of studying the art in the book and then guides them through how to study the figures in the text.
  • Integrated Figure Questions encourage students to answer thought-provoking questions as part of viewing the figure and increases the likelihood that students will spend time viewing the art.
  • Everyday Physiology features appear throughout the text to help students see connections to real-life applications.

 

A hallmark approach, organisation, and presentation

  • The Visual Approach breaks out of the narrative-first model of other two-semester A&P books. Instead of long columns of text that refer to visuals, this book integrates visuals with the text. Students can’t read without seeing the corresponding visual, and they can’t look at a visual without reading. This book has true text-art integration, which encourages reading and enhances understanding.
  • The Modular Organisation presents each chapter in self-contained, two-page spreads. The top left page begins with the module number and module title, the bottom right page ends with the learning outcome for each module, and the text-art presentation with integrated self-check questions constitutes the rest of the spread. These two-page spreads give students a predictable learning path and an efficient organisation method for managing their time. Everything they need is contained within these spreads, which means no flipping pages to find relevant figures. Within each chapter, related modules are organised into sections that conclude with a Section Review.
  • Clinical Modules throughout the book help students connect what they learn in class to the real world, with scenarios they may encounter in their future career.
  • Chapter-opening Learning Outcomes are based on the Learning Outcomes recommended by the HAPS organisation and are repeated at the end of each two-page module to drive home the connection between the Learning Outcomes and the associated teaching points.
  • Learning Outcomes Correlation booklet matches the Learning Outcomes in the textbook to the recommended HAPS Learning Outcomes. Instructors can use this reference tool to quickly see where a given topic is covered, and to what degree.
  • Full-sentence module titles state the core fact or concept that is presented in the module. These correlate by number to the Learning Outcomes on the chapter-opening page and at the end of each module, thus making it easy for students to “see,” navigate through, and learn the chapter content.

 

Frequent study and practice includes:

  • Chapter Integration sections ask students to aggregate what they have learned so far in the context of real-world situations. These scenarios are presented in a friendly, story format followed by critical thinking questions.
  • End-of-Chapter study and practice material includes a narrative Study Outline and comprehensive Chapter Review Questions (labeling, matching, true/false, multiple choice, fill-in-the-blank, and short answer) to help students learn and integrate the chapter content.
  • Integrated Figure Review Questions and Section Reviews ask students to recall their understanding of facts and concepts.
