A Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomy & Physiology (Loose Leaf)
By (author): Paul A. Krieger
Page: 516 page
A Visual Analogy Guide to Human Anatomy and Physiology by Paul A. Krieger uses visual analogies and other unique study tools to assist the student in learning details of human anatomy and physiology. This two-color book can be used in conjunction with any textbook. Students can label diagrams, create their own drawings or color existing black and white illustrations to better understand the presented material. 3-hole drilled.
How To Use this Book
This book was written primarily for students of human anatomy and physiology; however, it will be useful for teachers oranyone else with an interest in this topic. It was designed to be used in conjunction with any of the major anatomy or anatomy and physiology textbooks. What makes it unique, creative, and fun is the visual analogy learning system. This will
be explained later. The modular format allows you to focus on one key concept at a time. Each module has a text page on the left with corresponding illustrations on the facing page. Most illustrations are unlabeled so that you can quiz yourself on the structures. A handy key to the illustration is provided on the text page. While this book covers most all major organ systems, the topics are weighted more toward areas that typically give students difficulty. It uses a variety of learning activities such as
labeling, coloring, and mnemonics to help instruct. In addition, it offers special study tips for mastering difficult topics.
What Are Visual Analogies?
A visual analogy is a helpful way to learn new material based on what you already know from everyday life. It compares an anatomical structure to something familiar such as an animal or a common object. For example, the vertebral column has three different types of vertebrae. One type looks like a giraffe. Comparing the vertebra to a giraffe allows you to mentally correlate the unknown (vertebra) with the known (giraffe). Doing this accomplishes several things.
1. It reduces your anxiety about learning the material and helps you focus on the task at hand.
2. It forces you to observe anatomical structures more carefully. After all, being a good observer is the first step to becoming a good anatomist—or any type of scientist!
3. It makes the learning more fun, relevant, and meaningful so you can better retain the information.
Whenever a visual analogy is used in this book, a small picture of it appears in the upper righthand corner of the illustration page for easy reference. This allows you to quickly reference a page visually, simply by flipping through the pages.
The following icons are used throughout this book:
Microscope icon—indicates any illustration that is microscopic.
Crayon icon—indicates illustrations that were specially made for coloring. Even though students may color any of the illustrations to enhance their learning, they may benefit more by referring to this icon. In some cases, written instructions appear next to this icon with directions about exactly what to color or how to color it.
Scissors icon—indicates that something is either cut or broken. For example, it may be used to show that a chemical bond between two molecules is broken.
Three-dimensional icon—Indicates a three-dimensional view of an anatomical structure.
Two-dimensional icon—Indicates a two-dimensional view of an anatomical structure.
Dashed lines usually are used to indicate a structure that is behind another structure.
