Help students see biology’s relevance by focusing on core concepts
Eric Simon’s Biology: The Core presents essential biological concepts, using a unique visual and hybrid approach. The succinct 12-chapter textbook uses dynamic figures and illustrations organized into concise, self-contained 2-page modules that focus students’ attention to what is most relevant.
Biology: The Core pairs with Mastering Biology to offer extensive assignment options and support materials that provide instructors with maximum flexibility. For every concept in the text, Mastering Biology provides assignments and activities instructors can use to layer detail and tailor content to their course and the way they teach, including new Guided Video Tours of key modules and new Coaching Activities on scientific literacy—all developed by author Eric Simon. Instructors can engage students in current issues and easily build active and relevant lectures with the unique set of “Current Topic” instructor resources that Biology: The Core offers, including Current Topic PowerPoint lectures, Mastering assignments, instructor topic guides, and Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules. Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules offer the best classroom tested activities and recommended assignments that the Biology: The Core, Mastering Biology, and Learning Catalytics have to offer.
The 3rd Edition focuses on current issues and presents active learning and flipped classroom strategies that encourage students to think and actively participate in the non-majors biology course. Ten new Core Issues modules engage students and help them see the relationship between key concepts and current issues they are familiar with such as nutrition, antibiotic resistance, diabetes, cancer, vaccinations, and more. Each of these ten beautifully illustrated modules conveys relevant topics and core biological concepts, and are accompanied by a full suite of supplementary resources in Mastering Biology.
