Designed to be used with all majors-level general biology textbooks, the included labs are investigative, using both discovery- and hypothesis-based science methods. Students experimentally investigate topics, observe structure, use critical thinking skills to predict and test ideas, and engage in hands-on learning. By emphasizing investigative, quantitative, and comparative approaches to the topics, the authors continually emphasize how the biological sciences are integrative, yet unique. This manual is an excellent choice for colleges and universities that want their students to experience the breadth of modern biology encouraged them to think for themselves.
An instructor's manual, provides detailed advice based on the authors' experience on how to prepare materials for each lab, teachings tips and lesson plans, and questions that can be used in quizzes and practical exams
