Overview

With its distinctive investigative approach to learning, this effective laboratory manual encourages readers to become detectives of science. While teaching the basic materials and procedures important for all biology majors to learn, the authors also invite readers to pose hypotheses, make predictions, conduct open-ended experiments, collect data, and then apply the results to new problems. The result of this "process of science" approach is that readers learn to think creatively, just as scientists do. Laboratory exercises are divided into three categories: directed, thematic, and open-ended. For college instructors and students.
