BIOLOGY: HOW LIFE WORKS has been a revolutionary force for both instructors and students in the majors biology course. It was the first truly comprehensive set of integrated tools for introductory biology seamlessly incorporating powerful text media and assessment to create the best pedagogical experience for students.THE VISUAL PROGRAMThe already impressive visual program has been greatly improved and expanded. The powerful Visual Synthesis tools have been reimagined allowing for more flexibility for both students and instructors. A new Tour Mode allows for learning objective-driven tours of the material and deep linking from the eText allow the student to jump straight from the text into a rich visual representation of the content. Instructors can also create customized tours to use for engaging in-class presentations. And finally new animations have been added to the library including a new 3D animation to support the animal physiology content.A FOCUS ON SCIENTIFIC SKILLSThe third edition does even more to teach students the skills they need to think like a scientist along with the content they need to move beyond the introductory course. New Skills Primers are self-paced tutorials that guide students to learn practice and use skills like data visualization experimental design working with numbers and more. New How Do We Know? activities accompany the feature in the text and teach students to understand scientific inquiry.SUPPORTED IN ACHIEVEAchieve is the new online companion to How Life Worksthat includes a comprehensive set of interconnected teaching and assessment tools. It incorporates the most effective elements from Macmillan�s market leading solutions - including Sapling LaunchPad iClicker and others - in a single easy to use platform.Highlights include:A design guided by learning science research. Co-designed through extensive collaboration and testing by both students and faculty including two levels of Institutional Review Board approval for every study of AchieveA learning path of powerful content including pre-class in-class and post-class activities and assessments.A detailed gradebook with insights for just-in-time teaching and reporting on student achievement by learning objective.Easy integration and gradebook sync with iClicker classroom engagement solutions.Simple integration with your campus LMS and availability through Inclusive Access programs.IMPROVED ORGANIZATION OF TOPICSWe implemented several organizational changes based on extensive user feedback with the goal of creating an improved narrative for students and a more flexible teaching framework for instructors.A new chapter on Animal Form Function and Evolutionary History leads off the animal anatomy and physiology chapters to provide a whole-body view of structure and function and to provide better context for the more specific systems in following chapters.The ecology coverage has been enriched and reorganized for a more seamless flow. A new chapter on Ecosystem Ecology combines ecosystem concepts formerly housed in separate chapters to present a more cohesive view of the flow of matter and energy in ecosystems.All of these changes and improvements represent the next step in the life of Biology: How Life Works. We think we have created the best learning resource for introductory biology students and we think instructors will find joy in the improvements they can make in their classes with these materials.Read more
