Overview

An Applied Approach to Nutrition for Non-Majors. Bring your nutrition course into focus! Nutrition: An Applied Approach, Fourth Edition introduces non- majors to nutrition with an innovative, applied format that discourages rote memorization and promotes long-term understanding of the material. Building on students' natural interest in nutrition, the authors demonstrate in a clear, conversational style how key nutritional information relates to the students' personal health and nutrition, and show how to debunk commonly held misconceptions. The applied approach is reflected in the functional organization of the micronutrient chapters, focusing on the vitamins and minerals and their primary functions within the body. The applied content is focused on key content areas: fluid and electrolyte balance, antioxidant function, bone health, and energy metabolism and blood health-topics of particular importance to instructors. Students can easily grasp this accessible conceptual framework for understanding the role nutrients play in their bodies and overall health. The Fourth Edition features MasteringNutritionT, an online homework, assessment, and tutorial system that allows instructors to personalize the nutrition course like never before with next generation course management tools. Students master topics through interactive mini-lessons, quizzing, and immediate wrong-answer feedback. This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience-for you and your students. Here's how: Personalize learning with MasteringNutrition: Improve results by helping students to quickly master concepts from self-paced tutorials that feature immediate wrong-answer feedback and hints that emulate the office-hour experience to keep students on track. Help students visualize and understand tough topics: All-New Focus Figures appear in bold, full-page displays throughout the text to help teach students the toughest topics in nutrition.
