In Roiger/Bullock, connections are made between systems so that students learn how the body functions normally in homeostasis, and how disruption of homeostasis leads to disease and disorder. With a straightforward writing style that engages the reader directly, the authors explain difficult concepts in the context of daily activities, making them easier to grasp. A one-column design and brand new art program also makes the content more inviting and facilitates comprehension in students. Chapters are mapped out by specific learning outcomes so that there are no surprises, and all exercises throughout the text, workbook, and digital ancillaries are directly tied to these measurable outcomes. Integrated digital content includes Body ANIMAT3D and audio pronunciations.
Roiger and Bullock’s text requires no prior knowledge of chemistry or cell biology, and is designed for a one-semester, entry-level A&P course.
