Buy Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach with MasteringA&P access card 6e (ISBN 9781447963196) if you need access to Mastering as well, and save money on this brilliant resource.Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach. The newly revised Sixth Edition introduces a major reorganization of the early chapters to provide the best foundation for the course and new art features that streamline review and essential topics so that students can access them more easily on an as-needed basis. Salient Features Four chapters on Integrative Physiology (chapters 6, 13, 20, and 25) demonstrate how physiological processes work together in an integrated system. These chapters also explore how body systems influence each other and show that overall systems are often more complicated than the sum of their component parts. Interactive pedagogyencourages students to assess their knowledge as they read rather than waiting until the end of the chapter: Background Basics sections at the beginning of each chapter encourage students to revisit and review topics for the upcoming chapter. Concept Links (signaled with white and blue chain link symbols) help students locate material they need to review. Concept Checks are placed at intervals throughout the chapters and ask students to test their understanding before continuing to the next topic. Figure and graph questions promote analytical skills by encouraging students to interpret data and information. Running Problems appear in segments throughout each chapter and require students to apply what they have learned to a real life pathophysiology case study. The end-of-chapter, four-level learning system helps build student confidence and understanding by progressing from factual questions to conceptual problems, and from these, to analytical exercises to quantitative questions. Superb art program features: Anatomy Summaries show the anatomy of a physiological system from a macro to micro perspective. Reflex pathway maps and concept maps present material in a logical, consistent, and easy-to-navigate format. Coordinated feature boxes provide relevance and enhance students' understanding of "hot topics." These include Clinical Focus (featuring several discussions on Diabetes), Biotechnology, and Emerging Concepts boxes. Powerful instructor supplements include a comprehensive Instructor Resource DVD with A&P Flix™ animations in 3D that cover key physiological concepts and invigorate classroom lectures, Lecture Outlines, Active Lecture Questions, Physiology Review Quiz Show Games, all book art in PowerPoint®, and more.
