Focus on the Essential What, How, & Why of Human Anatomy & Physiology

With the 12th Edition of Essentials of Human Anatomy and Physiology, science educator Suzanne Keller joins bestselling author Elaine Marieb in helping learners focus on the essential What, How, & Why of A&P, without getting sidetracked in unnecessary details.  

 

Thoroughly updated with dozens of new figures, photos, and current information on medical recommendations and terminology, the 12th Edition continues to set the standard for brief, accessible one-semester A&P texts. The authors’ hallmark clear and friendly writing style has been strengthened with familiar analogies and abundant mnemonic cues that help in learning and remembering concepts. Continuing to offer just the right balance of anatomy, physiology, and clinical coverage, engaging new chapter previews help learners hone in on what structures and functions they are studying, how they function, and why they are important to learn.

 

Also available with Mastering A&P or as a standalone Pearson eText


Mastering™ A&P is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to engage students and improve results. Instructors ensure that students arrive ready to learn by assigning educationally effective content before class, and encourage critical thinking and retention with in-class resources such as Learning Catalytics™. Students can further master concepts after class through assignments that provide hints and answer-specific feedback. With a wide range of activities available, students can actively learn, understand, and retain even the most difficult concepts. New vocabulary-building activities and Interactive Physiology 2.0 tutorials expand the options for students to use Mastering A&P as an effective practice and learning tool.


Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class—motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Portable access lets students study on the go, even offline. And, reading analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.


Note: You are purchasing a standalone product. Students, if interested in purchasing this title with Mastering A&P or as a Pearson eText, ask your instructor for the correct package ISBN and Course ID. Instructors, contact your Pearson representative for more information.

About the Author:

Elaine Marieb After receiving her Ph.D. in zoology from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Elaine N. Marieb joined the faculty of the Biological Science Division of Holyoke Community College. While teaching at Holyoke Community College, where many of her students were pursuing nursing degrees, she developed a desire to better understand the relationship between the scientific study of the human body and the clinical aspects of the nursing practice. To that end, while continuing to teach full time, Dr. Marieb pursued her nursing education, which culminated in a Master of Science degree with a clinical specialization in gerontology from the University of Massachusetts. It is this experience that has informed the development of the unique perspective and accessibility for which her publications are known.

 

Dr. Marieb has given generously to provide opportunities for students to further their education. She funds the E. N. Marieb Science Research Awards at Mount Holyoke College, which promotes research by undergraduate science majors, and has underwritten renovation of the biology labs in Clapp Laboratory at that college. Dr. Marieb also contributes to the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, where she generously provided funding for reconstruction and instrumentation of a cutting-edge cytology research laboratory. Recognizing the severe national shortage of nursing faculty, she underwrites the Nursing Scholars of the Future Grant Program at the university. In January 2012, Florida Gulf Coast University named a new health professions facility in her honor. The Dr. Elaine Nicpon Marieb Hall houses several specialized laboratories for the School of Nursing, made possible by Dr. Marieb’s generous support.

 

 

Suzanne Keller Suzanne M. Keller began her teaching career while she was still in graduate school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. Inspired by her lifelong passion for learning, Dr. Keller quickly adopted a teaching style focused on translating challenging concepts into easily understood parts using analogies and stories from her own experiences. An Iowa native, Dr. Keller uses her expertise to teach microbiology and anatomy and physiology at Indian Hills Community College, where most of her students are studying nursing or other health science programs.

 

Dr. Keller values education as a way for students to express their values through the careers they pursue. She supports those endeavors both in and out of the classroom by participating in her local Lions Club, by donating money to the Indian Hills Foundation to fund scholarships, and by financially supporting service-learning trips for students. Dr. Keller also sponsors children in need with gifts for the holidays.

 

Dr. Keller is a member of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the Iowa Academy of Science. When not teaching or writing, Dr. Keller enjoys reading, traveling, family gatherings, and relaxing at home under the watchful eyes of her two canine children.
