NEW—FAP Interactive-Student CD-ROM

  • 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 learned. Art: Is it important that your students are able to visualize complex structures and key physiological processes?
Martini has set the standard for superior illustrations that enable students to SEE important structures and processes unfold.
  • 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. Applications: 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 offers 3 flexible ways of covering real-world applications:
  • Clinical Discussions show how an understanding of abnormal conditions can shed light on normal functions and vice versa.
  • 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!) Pedagogy: 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?
Martini FAP 4E:
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 problem-solving skills.
