INTRODUCTION TO ANATOMY AND PHYSIOLOGY is for the fundamentals A&P science course. It requires no prior biology or chemistry knowledge. In addition this book exposes learners to the fundamentals of the human body and how it functions, specifically focusing on how body systems work together to promote homeostasis. Each body system chapter is self-contained and can be studied in any order preferred. Extensive coverage of diseases highlights common disorders that affect the body throughout the life span. Case Studies and Career Focus features help learners apply knowledge and consider careers for which an understanding of Anatomy and Physiology is essential (crime scene investigators, toxicologists, estheticians, medical animation specialists, food safety specialists, health care, etc.). Concept Maps illustrate how structure relates to function and Body Systems Working Together to Maintain Homeostasis show learners how the entire body works as a whole. Essential laboratory exercises included at the end of each chapter provide hands-on lab experience, without the need for a separate lab manual. Key terms with phonetic pronunciations help build vocabulary. The CD-ROM that accompanies the book engages learners through interactive activities, quizzes and animations.
- Search and Explore feature goes beyond the textbook to expand the learning experience with key word Internet searches, suggested websites with related activities, and brief human interest projects designed to add a personal element to assignments.
- Case Studies are included in each body system chapter to encourage application of concepts learned, promote critical thinking and facilitate discussion.
- Career Focus sections help learners apply knowledge and consider careers for which an understanding of Anatomy and Physiology is essential (crime scene investigators, toxicologists, estheticians, medical animation specialists, food safety specialists, health care, etc.).
- StudyWARE™ Connection feature adds learning opportunities such as practice quizzes, animations, image labeling and other interactive games included on the accompanying CD-ROM.
- Study Guide Practice feature guides readers to even more learning tools including practice questions, labeling and coloring exercises, and crossword puzzles in the Study Guide.
- Numerous diseases, disorders and conditions throughout the text help relate concepts presented in the text to real-life situations.
