About This Product

DESCRIPTION

Learn biology by learning to think like a scientist.

Since its trailblazing First Edition, Biological Science has delivered numerous biology teaching innovations that emphasize higher-order thinking skills and conceptual understanding rather than an encyclopedic grasp of what is known about biology. With each edition, this approach has grown and improved to better help students make the shift from being novice learners to expert learners. Central to this shift is a student-centered approach that provides deep support for the learning of core content and the development of key skills that help students learn and practice biology.

Biological Science, Third Canadian Edition, brings together Scott Freeman’s pioneering active learning approach with carefully selected coverage of Canadian issues and research. Each page of the book is designed in the spirit of active learning, asking students to apply critical thinking skills as they learn key concepts. Accounts of researchers designing and analyzing real experiments, carefully punctuated by thoughtful questions and exercises, train introductory students in the process of DOING biology.

Personalize Learning with Pearson Mastering Biology

Mastering Biology is an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program designed to work with this text to engage students and improve results. Within its structured environment, students practice what they learn, test their understanding, and pursue a personalized study plan that helps them better absorb course material and understand difficult concepts.
