About This Product

DESCRIPTION

Psychology: From Inquiry to Understanding, 4Ce continues to emphasize the importance of scientific-thinking skills and teaches students how to test their  assumptions, and motivates them to use scientific thinking skills to better understand the field of psychology in their everyday lives. By applying scientific thinking, students can more intelligently evaluate claims about both laboratory research and daily life.  Students will emerge with the “psychological smarts,” or open-minded skepticism, needed to distinguish psychological misinformation from credible, useful psychological information.

Personalize Learning with Revel

We are especially excited, in the fourth Canadian edition, to leverage Revel, an  interactive eText platform that replaces the traditional text with an engaging learning experience that prepares students for class. Revel presents an affordable, seamless blend of author-created digital text, media, and assessment based on  learning science. With Revel, students are able to read, practice, and study in one  continuous experience – anytime, anywhere, on any device, both online and offline.

Our intention in using Revel is to bring psychological phenomena to life and render concrete and accessible the types of evidence available to psychological scientists. To this end, the fourth Canadian edition has been updated to include not only new evidence and topic areas, but also new techniques for engaging student attention and facilitating learning.
