Let's start with a ham and cheese sandwich with lettuce and pickles. As I bite into my sandwich the teeth are present for mastication to begin the process of mechanical digestion and the saliva begins to mix with my food where salivary amylase is present and starts the digestion of the starchy bread.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
