BioInquiry: Making Connections in Biology / Edition 2 available in Paperback
- Pub. Date:
In its First Edition, this NSF-sponsored learning system was hailed as a welcome departure from traditional approaches, both in terms of delivery of content and organization. Now in a new Second Edition, the text continues to present an early introduction of evolution, an effective alternative to front-loaded chemistry, and a seamless integration of various media to help students of varying learning styles gain the most from the biology course. The technology component of the new edition has been thoroughly updated, refined, and streamlined.
