Summary: Award-winning art and photo program:
Navigator Figures are "big picture" overviews that appear at the start of discussions of complex physiological processes. Similar to a roadmap with a highlighted path, the Navigator Figures are repeated at appropriate intervals in the discussion, breaking the process into clear, easy-to-follow steps.
Compound Art Figures provide students with multiple views of the same structure, typically pairing an ...show more artist's drawing with a cadaver photograph taken by renowned biomedical photographer Ralph Hutchings. This approach allows students to compare the illustrator's interpretations with photos of the actual structure as it may be seen in the laboratory or operating room. Figures are also cross-referenced to related, large-format photographs and scans in Martini's Atlas of the Human Body.
"Stepped" Art Figures break down multifaceted processes into step-by-step illustrations that coordinate with the author's narrative descriptions. Macro-to-Micro Views help students bridge the gap between familiar and unfamiliar structures of the body by sequencing anatomical views from whole organs 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 painting of the structure, a corresponding sectional view, and a photomicrograph.
Time-saving navigation tools:
Concept Links, signaled with blue chain link 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.
Locator Dots are placeholders that appear next to every figure reference in the narrative. These visible yet unobtrusive red dots help students return to reading after viewing a table or figure.
End-of-Chapter, 3-Level Learning System helps build student confidence and understanding through a logical progression from factual questions to conceptual problems to analytical exercises. The variety of questions also gives instructors flexibility in assigning homework from the text. The 3-level learning system is carried through in review exercises on The Anatomy & Physiology Place companion website and in the print Study Guide. ...show less
