Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology: The Ultimate Learning Tool
Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology: The Ultimate Learning Tool introduces students to the foundational principles of anatomy and physiology in a highly accessible, conceptual, and fun manner. Avoiding hefty page counts and detailed examinations of every aspect of anatomy and physiology, this volume is sleek, focused, and designed to help new students attain a solid understanding of the essentials of anatomy and physiology. A focus on conceptual learning makes it easier for students to gain an understanding of anatomy and physiology rather than just memorizing details without insight.
Part One describes the unique structure of Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology, its origin, the keys to learning, and summarizes the innovative learning tools found only in this text. In Part Two, students study the basic structure of the human body. Chapters cover cellular biology, tissue organization, integumentary, skeletal, muscular, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, urinary, and reproductive systems. This section helps students build a solid working knowledge of the basic structure of the human body.
Part Three focuses on physiology, integrating function with structure. The text explains how bodily systems work together providing a holistic understanding of major processes. Students learn about protein synthesis, cellular membrane transport, the endocrine system, nutrition and metabolism, gas exchange, fluid compartments, acid/base balance, and more.
Written in an informal and conversational tone, Super Simple Anatomy and Physiology is full of exercises and activities which will solidify learning. It is ideal for introductory anatomy and physiology courses at the high school and undergraduate level. It is also an effective review tool for graduate and professional students as well as practicing healthcare professionals.
