Unique Text Features Promote Active Learning

Each chapter has a consistent organization to help students learn the concepts explained in the text and illustrated in the figures. The numerous pedagogical features can aid students in their quest to master new terminology, learn new concepts, analyze and understand physiological principles, and finally apply this knowledge in practical ways. The chapter organization, and the learning devices built into each chapter, facilitates this growth by providing mechanisms for active learning of the chapter contents. Because mastery of the content of a human physiology course requires such active learning, students are advised to make use of the learning aids in each chapter.
