Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach 7th Global Edition
For courses in Human Physiology An Integrated Science Needs an Integrated Approach Human Physiology: An Integrated Approach broke ground with its thorough coverage of molecular physiology seamlessly integrated into a traditional homeostasis-based systems approach. MasteringA&P(R) is not included. Students, if MasteringA&P is a recommended/mandatory component of the course, please ask your instructor for the correct ISBN. MasteringA&P should only be purchased when required by an instructor. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.
Organic Synthesis and Retrosynthesis: An Applied Approach provides readers with the essential skills they need for both organic synthesis and retrosynthesis, encouraging their practice in real-life problems included within the text. It is designed to supplement existing organic textbooks, not only providing a refresher on organic chemistry, but also taking the subject one-step further by including practical applied examples to try in Reaxys (www.reaxys.com). In addition, the text provides new, applied skills and tools to help users during organic synthesis courses, and is also useful for those setting tutorial and group problems. * Ideal revision and hands on learning guide for organic synthesis* Clearly explains the principles and practice of retrosynthesis which is often not covered in other books* Enables the practice of synthetic knowledge with the use of real-life examples * Contains a free version of Reaxys (www.reaxys.com) to enhance key concepts.
Designed for the one-semester course, Seeley’s Essentials of Anatomy and Physiology is written to allow instructors the ability to accomplish one overall goal: to teach the basics of A&P while fostering the skill of problem solving. Through learning how to solve problems and think critically, students learn A&P based on two themes: the relationship between structure and function, and homeostasis.
Users who purchase Connect Plus receive access to the full online ebook version of the textbook, as well as SmartBook.
Organized around the central theme of homeostasis – how the body meets changing demands while maintaining the internal constancy necessary for all cells and organs to function – Human Physiology helps you appreciate the integrated functioning of the human body. Author Lauralee Sherwood uses clear, straightforward language, analogies, and frequent references to everyday experiences to help you learn and relate to physiology concepts. The vibrant art program and empowering digital resources – including robust 3D animations and rich homework problems -enable you to visualize important concepts and processes. By focusing on the core principles and sharing enthusiasm for the subject matter, Sherwood helps you develop a solid foundation for future courses and careers in the health profession.

Were you looking for the book with access to MasteringA&P? This product is the book alone, and does NOT come with access to MasteringA&P. Buy Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology with MasteringA&P access card 10e (ISBN 9781292057606) if you need access to Mastering as well, and save money on this brilliant resource. For two-semester A&P Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology helps students succeed in the challenging A&P course with an easy-to-understand narrative, precise visuals, and steadfast accuracy. Every chapter of the Tenth Edition includes one- and two-page Spotlight Figures that seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide students through complex topics and processes. These highly visual presentations incorporate, for select topics, the “visual approach” that the same author team created in their Visual Anatomy & Physiology book. New Clinical Cases open every chapter and get students thinking about the chapter content in the context of a personal compelling patient story. This program presents a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. It provides: *Text-art Integration: The popular one- and two-page Spotlight Figures and other figure types seamlessly integrate text and visuals to guide students through complex topics and processes. Students study the Spotlight Figures in the book, and then instructors can assign them in MasteringA&P. *Story-based Clinical Content: Motivate students for their future careers with the new Clinical Cases. Students read the Clinical Cases in the book, and then instructors can assign them, which are also assignable in MasteringA&P. *Time-saving Navigation and Study Tools: Enable students to better navigate difficult A&P topics This product is the book alone, and does NOT come with access to MasteringA&P.. This title can be supported by MasteringA&P, an online homework and tutorial system which can be used by students for self-directed study or fully integrated into an instructor’s course. You can benefit from MasteringA&P at a reduced price by purchasing a pack containing a copy of the book and an access card for MasteringA&P: Fundamentals of Anatomy & Physiology with MasteringA&P access card 10e (ISBN 9781292057606).
