Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology 11th Global Edition
For courses in two-semester A&P. Using Art Effectively to Teach the Toughest Topics in A&PFundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps students succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy. With the 11th Edition, the author team draws from recent research exploring how students use and digest visual information to help students use art more effectively to learn A&P. New book features encourage students to view and consider figures in the textbook, and new narrated videos guide students through complex physiology figures to help them deconstruct and better understand complicated processes. Instructors can also request a new handbook by Lori Garrett, entitled The Art of Teaching A&P: Six Easy Lessons to Improve Student Learning, which explores some of the most common challenges encountered when using art to teach A&P, alongside strategies to address these challenges. Pearson Mastering (TM) Anatomy & Physiology not included. Students, if Pearson Mastering (TM) Anatomy & Physiology is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN and course ID. Pearson Mastering (TM) Anatomy & Physiology should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information. Pearson Mastering (TM) Anatomy & Physiology is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment product designed to engage students and improve results by helping students stay on track in the course and quickly master challenging A&P concepts. Features in the text are supported Pearson Mastering (TM) Anatomy & Physiology assignments, including new SmartArt Videos, Interactive Physiology 2.0, Dynamic Study Modules, Learning Catalytics, Spotlight Figure Coaching Activities, lab study tools, Get Ready for A&P, plus a variety of Art Labeling Questions, Clinical Application Questions, and more.
Thoroughly updated for currency and with exciting new practical examples throughout, this popular text provides the tools, practice, and basic knowledge for success in the biotech workforce. With its balanced coverage of basic cell and molecular biology, fundamental techniques, historical accounts, new advances, and hands-on applications, the Third Edition emphasizes the future of biotechnology and the biotechnology student’s role in that future. Two new features-Forecasting the Future, and Making a Difference-along with several returning hallmark features, support the new focus.
Anyone who attempts to read genetics or epidemiology research literature needs to understand the essentials of biostatistics. This book, a revised new edition of the successful Essentials of Biostatistics has been written to provide such an understanding to those who have little or no statistical background and who need to keep abreast of new findings in this fast moving field. Unlike many other elementary books on biostatistics, the main focus of this book is to explain basic concepts needed to understand statistical procedures.
- Surveys basic statistical methods used in the genetics and epidemiology literature, including maximum likelihood and least squares.
- Introduces methods, such as permutation testing and bootstrapping, that are becoming more widely used in both genetic and epidemiological research.
- Is illustrated throughout with simple examples to clarify the statistical methodology.
- Explains Bayes’ theorem pictorially.
- Features exercises, with answers to alternate questions, enabling use as a course text.
Written at an elementary mathematical level so that readers with high school mathematics will find the content accessible. Graduate students studying genetic epidemiology, researchers and practitioners from genetics, epidemiology, biology, medical research and statistics will find this an invaluable introduction to statistics.
The Science Matrix is a comprehensive new compact course book covering all 24 of the content-based NCEA level 1 Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics standards (as specified in NZQA’s subject matrix) in just over 200 pages. For whatever combination of standards you choose to offer students in your Year 11 here is a single affordable textbook that covers the knowledge, understandings and skills your students require for success in both externally and internally assessed NCEA standards. Building on the long-term appeal of the Pathfinder unit format, George Hook has written numerous new units and updated existing ones to cover all bullet points of the new standards. The units closely reflect the current expectations and requirements of NCEA examiners and assessors.
