Features
  • Chapter Openers introduce each chapter and feature a question answered with a clear, simple image to help students visualise and remember concepts as they move through the chapter. Each opener includes a study tip and points students to interactive media and study tools in Mastering Biology.
  • Science in the Classroom presents annotated journal articles from American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and makes reading and understanding primary literature easier for students. The articles include assessments in Mastering, allowing instructors to assign the journal articles.
  • Make Connections Figures. These two-page visual representations show the “big picture” relationships between content from different chapters.
  • Additional Figure Walkthroughs that guide students to a deeper understanding of the ways in which figures represent biological structures, processes, and functions. One- to two-page visual spreads feature key figures with narrated explanations, figure markups, and self-assessment questions that reinforce important points and incorporate higher-level Bloom’s questions. Visualising questions appear in every chapter and ask students to create visuals themselves.
