Customer Reviews

Great deal, Great Biology Book  April 15, 2011
by


This was my first time working with ecampus and I had a very positive experience. To be honest, I was nervous. The first time, you don't really know what you're doing, and it can be a little intimidating. I was hoping that my first time would be special and this seller made my dream a reality. Everyone says that they'll always remember their first time, and now I know why.






Biology : Science for Life with Mybiology: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.

Summary

The Third Edition of Biology: Science for Life continues to draw readers into biology through engaging stories that make difficult topics more accessible and understandable. Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden strive to make teaching and learning biology a better experience from both sides of the desk. The authors draw from their teaching experiences to create a book with a flowing narrative and innovative features that require readers to become more active participants in their learning. Each chapter presents the material through a story that draws from real life examples, making the reading more engaging and accessible to today’s readers. These stories strive to demystify topics found in biology.

The Third Edition of this book features a completely re-designed art program and uses the authors’ teaching experiences to create student-centered features such as the new Savvy Reader, Visualize This, and Stop and Stretch to motivate and encourage reader learning. The new A Closer Look allows instructors the opportunity to expand on certain important biological topics. For instructors who would like to cover Animal Structure and Function and Plant Biology, an alternate edition of this book, Biology: Science for Life with Physiology, is also available.

Each chapter presents topics in biology through a story, helping students to understand important biological processes with concrete examples and applications. The author’s current classroom teaching experience allows students to test and practice new ideas every day, helping to make the text more engaging and student-approved.The authors use analogies in their writing and within the art program to help students better understand difficult concepts.

Author Biography

Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden Maier have been colleagues and collaborators for more than thirteen years. Both authors have adopted teaching styles at their respective universities, the University of Minnesota Duluth and St. John Fisher College, that capitalize on students’ natural curiosity about high-interest topics such as dieting, global warming, and organ donation to effectively teach fundamental course topics such as cell biology, photosynthesis, and physiology. Their classroom experience has informed every chapter to help students understand biological principles, develop critical thinking skills, apply biology to their own lives, and make the introductory course more enjoyable from both sides of the desk.

 

In addition to Biology: Science for Life, Colleen and Virginia are co-authors of Biology: Science for Life Laboratory Manual and Human Biology .
