McKinley’s Anatomy & Physiology An Integrative Approach 2nd edition brings a number of elements of the study of A&P collectively in ways that maximize understanding. Textbook discussions provide structural details within the context of their functional significance to integrate coverage of anatomy and physiology in every chapter.
Chapters emphasize the interdependence of body systems by weaving prior coverage of 1 system into textual explanations of how other systems work. These system relationships are additionally covered in “Integrate: Concept Connection” boxes. All figures are carefully designed to help the etextbook narrative and carry brief textual explanations to make figures self-contained study instruments. Special “Concept Overview” figures in every chapter tie together multi-faceted ideas in 1 or 2 page visual summaries.
Applications are presented in “Integrate: Clinical View” boxes to apply chapter content material using clinical examples that show students what can go wrong within the body to help crystallize understanding of the “norm.” Critical Thinking questions in “What Do You Think?” engage anatomy students in analysis or application to encourage college students to think globally about the content.
‘What Did You Learn’ are mini self-assessments at the end of every section that assess whether or not college students have an adequate grasp of the material before moving on. End-of-chapter “Challenge Yourself” assessments include ‘Do You Know the Basics” “Can You Apply What You have Learned?” and “Can You Synthesize What You have Learned?” question sets.
Career opportunities pursued by college students studying Anatomy and Physiology 2e PDF are highlighted at the start of every chapter. Everyday analogies and practical advice for remembering the content are offered in “Integrate: Learning Strategy” boxes. Chapters in the ebook finish with a summary of media tools available to help learn each chapter’s content.
