NEWFAP Interactive-Student CD-ROM
Martini has set the standard for superior illustrations
that enable students to SEE important structures and processes unfold.
- Students will never look at their A&P textbook the
same way! Embedded in the text material of Martini's FAP INTERACTIVE
CD-ROM are over 30,000 hot links to text art as well as live
art (animations) and audio that enable students to visualize
difficult concepts and processes. To help students learn new vocabulary,
hot links to key words in each chapter provide definitions and pronunciations
that aid in concept reinforcement. 20 interactive Tutorials and
interactive Case Studies help students apply what they have
Is it important that your students are able to visualize
complex structures and key physiological processes?
Martini offers 3 flexible ways of covering real-world
- Compound Art combines Bill Ober's award-winning
illustrations with photographs, micrographs, X-rays, and MRI images
for an unsurpassed experience with viewing anatomical structure.
- Process Art shows clearly how the successive stages
of dynamic physiological processes unfold in time.
- Large Illustrations Viewed from a Macro-Micro Level
in context help students better understand anatomical structures.
Do you think that real-world applications add relevancy
and promote a truer understanding of key A&P concepts? Do you prefer
a textbook that gives you flexible coverage of real-world applications?
Martini FAP 4E:
- Clinical Discussions show how an understanding
of abnormal conditions can shed light on normal functions and vice
- Clinical Boxes provide more in-depth coverage of
major diseases, such as diabetes, and of important diagnostic procedures,
such as spinal taps and myelography.
- The Applications Manual features more detailed
discussions of many clinical topics introduced in the text. (Unique!)
Would you prefer a text that provides a proven student
pedagogical framework that guides your students beyond memorizing
facts to developing their problem-solving skills?
A Tutor in Every Text:
- Concept Checks: (Speed Bumps) Interspersed
questions that encourage students to stop and check their understanding
of material before they move on.
- Concept Links: Blue chain links with
page references to help students review concepts discussed earlier
in the text.
- Figure Reference Locators: Red squares next to
call out figures in the text that function as placeholders to make
it easier to toggle between an illustration and the running narrative.
- 3-level Chapter Ending Material: Moves students through
memorizing facts, to understanding concepts to applying what they
learn to solve problems. Level One questions review basic facts
and terms. Level Two questions test the student's ability to
comprehend and integrate the chapter's key concepts. Level Three
exercises are real-world scenarios designed to develop student's
