Description

Product Description

 

For introductory courses for biology majors.

 

Discover biology, develop skills, and make connections

Known for its discovery-based, student-centered approach, Scott Freeman’s Biological Science emphasizes higher-order thinking, enhances skill development, and promotes active learning. Biological Science equips students with strategies that go beyond memorization and guides them in making connections between core concepts and content, underscoring principles from the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report. Students learn to apply their knowledge throughout the course, assess their level of understanding, and identify the types of cognitive skills that need improvement.


The 7th Edition enables students to see that biology concepts are connected by weaving one case study throughout the entire text, helping students make connections across biology. New content includes updated coverage of advances in genomic editing, global climate change, and recent insights into the evolution of land plants. New embedded Pearson eText assets support content in the text with whiteboard Making Models videos, Figure Walkthrough videos, and BioFlix animations that engage students, help them learn, and guide them in completing assignments.

 

Also available with Mastering Biology

By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, Mastering personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.Integrate dynamic content and tools with Mastering Biology and enable students to practice, build skills, and apply their knowledge. Built for, and directly tied to the text, Mastering Biology enables an extension of learning, allowing students a platform to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom.

About the Author

Scott Freeman received a PhD in Zoology from the University of Washington and was subsequently awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Evolution at Princeton University. He has done research in evolutionary biology on topics ranging from nest parasitism to the molecular systematics of the blackbird family and is coauthor, with Jon Herron, of the standard-setting undergraduate text Evolutionary Analysis. Scott is the recipient of a Distinguished Teaching Award from the University of Washington and is currently a Principal Lecturer in the UW Department of Biology, where he teaches introductory biology for majors, a writing-intensive course for majors called The Tree of Life, and a graduate seminar in college science teaching. Scott’s current research focuses on how active learning affects student learning and academic performance.

 

Lizabeth A. Allison is Chancellor Professor of Biology at the College of William & Mary. She received her PhD in Zoology from the University of Washington, specializing in molecular and cellular biology. Before coming to William & Mary, she spent eight years as a faculty member at the University of Canterbury in New Zealand. Liz teaches introductory biology for majors and upper division molecular biology courses. She has mentored graduate students and more than 120 undergraduate research students, many of them coauthoring papers with her on intracellular trafficking of the thyroid hormone receptor in normal and cancer cells. The recipient of numerous awards, including a State Council for Higher Education in Virginia (SCHEV) Outstanding Faculty Award in 2009, Liz received one of the three inaugural Arts Shouland Sciences Faculty Awards for Teaching Excellence in 2011, and a Plumeri Award for Faculty Excellence in 2012. In addition to her work on this text, she is author of Fundamental Molecular Biology, now in its second edition, with a third edition under way.
