Description Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology was created for the introductory level student and assumes no prior science knowledge by placing emphasis on the fundamentals. This new edition updates a great A&P classic while offering greater efficiencies to the user. The format for the 14th edition focuses on Learning Outcomes and Assessments to benefit the student along with the instructor.
Entirely New Art Program! The authors have gone through every piece of art. The art has been enhanced with brighter colors and more 3D effect.
New Figures! Several new figures have been added to this edition.
Career Corners! Career Corners have been added to every chapter to assist students in determining which career path they may like to follow.
SmartBook is the first and only adaptive reading experience.
SmartBook is powered by the intelligent and adaptive LearnSmart engine – and a brand-new advanced adaptive reading engine.
SmartBook facilitates the reading process by:
Identifying what a student knows and doesn’t know;
Reinforcing what the student should learn;
Adapting over time to ensure the student receives the greatest value over time.
NOTE: LearnSmart lives inside of SmartBook (meaning that every LearnSmart question is in SmartBook).
End of Chapter material has been updated to alert students to specific digital assets that are available for that chapter.
Anatomy & Physiology Revealed (APR) icons: These icons are found in figure legends and indicate that there is a direct link to APR available in the eBook provided with Connect Plus for this title!
Updated micrographs and corresponding art: Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology,13e features many new micrographs and corresponding artwork.
Ancillary correlation guide. Continuing with the emphasis on outcomes and assessments, the authors have created a valuable ancillary correlation guide that is available online. Organized by learning outcome, this guide directs instructors to the specific media or print supplemental resource that correlates to each learning outcome.
Instructor's manual and test bank questions correlated to outcomes. The authors have revised both the instructor's manual and test questions that accompany Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology Bank to be correlated by learning outcome.
InnerConnections multipurpose illustrations. Found at the end of systems chapters, these illustrations conceptually link the highlighted body system to every other system, reinforcing the dynamic interactions of groups of organs. These graphic representations review chapter concepts, make connections, and stress the big picture in learning and applying the concepts and facts of anatomy and physiology.
This title includes Connect with LearnSmart- an online assessment tool featuring McGraw-Hill’s unique adaptive, diagnostic learning tool- LearnSmart.
Animations embedded in PowerPoint slides - The high quality animations that have long accompanied Hole's Anatomy and Physiology are now embedded into the PowerPoint slides for easy incorporation in lectures by simply using the copy/paste function of PowerPoint.
Concise summary material. Hole’s places an emphasis on succinct summaries by incorporate tables throughout the text that correlate to the narrative and avoid excessive detail.
From Science to Technology sections. These sections preview the technological applications of knowledge in anatomy and physiology that students are likely to encounter in the future, and explain how and why the technology was developed. This information enhances student understanding of the material presented.
Foundations for Success. This section was specifically designed to help students LEARN how to study at the collegiate level and efficiently use the tools available to them.
Color–coded appendix references. References to appendices appear in a different color to make them stand out for quick student reference to the outstanding appendices.
Excellent Clinical Coverage – Hole's incorporate an appropriate amount of clinical coverage to draw students into the material by showing readers the relevance of the information presented. Clinical applications help students better understand a concepts from a practitioner's perspective.
Learning outcomes and assessments. This edition of Hole's Human Anatomy and Physiology features an emphasis on outcomes and assessment. Each chapter begins with a list of learning outcomes that are referenced to the appropriate page in the chapter. At the end of the chapter, the authors have incorporated both page-referenced assessments and integrative (critical thinking) assessments.
Figure Questions: Questions have been added to key figures in every chapter. These questions allow an additional assessment for the student.
