Description

We’re proud to announce the new Understanding Anatomy & Physiology, High School Edition in partnership with F.A. Davis Company!


This new edition is designed for visually enhanced and interactive learning. Beginning with an overview of the scientific process and the body, including its chemical and cellular structures, chapters present each body system, grouped by function. Lessons make complex concepts easy to learn and remember with easy-to-grasp sections, visually rich illustrations, and informative sidebars.


Supplemental student and instructor resources include workbook activities and answer keys, interactive modules, animations, podcasts, an image bank, an audio glossary, PowerPoint presentations, and test bank questions and answer keys.


And the text’s “Making It Work” section introduces high school students to the variety of careers that begin with a firm foundation in A&P, making this text a valuable addition to any CTE program.

Key Features

Learning Outcomes at the beginning of each chapter outline the knowledge students should be able to demonstrate when they’ve completed the chapter.


Fast Facts are short explanations that enhance understanding of important topics related to each body system and their impact on individuals and society.


The Body at Work describes specific physiological processes of the system under discussion.


Review of Terms lists enable students to quickly locate short definitions of the key words in every chapter, while new terms are also defined in the text to reinforce learning.


Life Lessons apply A&P information to real-life situations.


Own the Information exercises ask students to identify the most important points in each chapter and compare them to the learning objectives.


House Calls are real-world examples that illustrate how anatomy and physiology can be seen in our everyday lives, followed by discussion questions that call on students to apply what they’ve learned to explain the “what, how, and why” of the situation.


Taking Actions are easy-to-implement experiments that demonstrate the principles explored in House Calls that enable students to see how they work for themselves.


Test Your Knowledge questions at the end of every chapter assess comprehension of the content and highlight areas of strength and weakness.


Making It Work introduces students to the many exciting careers that begin with a firm foundation in anatomy & physiology, outlining the educational and clinical experience required, and where the job opportunities are for each.
