For the two-semester A&P course.
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 one 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.
