Summary

For non-majors/mixed biology courses.

 

Help students see biology’s relevance by focusing on core concepts

Eric Simon’s Biology: The Core presents essential biological concepts, using a unique visual and hybrid approach. The succinct 12-chapter textbook uses dynamic figures and illustrations organized into concise, self-contained 2-page modules that focus students’ attention to what is most relevant.  

 

Biology: The Core pairs with Mastering Biology to offer extensive assignment options and support materials that provide instructors with maximum flexibility. For every concept in the text, Mastering Biology provides assignments and activities instructors can use to layer detail and tailor content to their course and the way they teach, including new Guided Video Tours of key modules and new Coaching Activities on scientific literacy–all developed by author Eric Simon. Instructors can engage students in current issues and easily build active and relevant lectures with the unique set of “Current Topic” instructor resources that Biology: The Core offers, including Current Topic PowerPoint lectures, Mastering assignments, instructor topic guides, and Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules. Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules offer the best classroom tested activities and recommended assignments that the Biology: The Core , Mastering Biology, and Learning Catalytics have to offer.

 

The 3rd Edition focuses on current issues and presents active learning and flipped classroom strategies that encourage students to think and actively participate in the non-majors biology course. Ten new Core Issues modules engage students and help them see the relationship between key concepts and current issues they are familiar with such as nutrition, antiobiotic resistance, diabetes, cancer, vaccinations, and more. Each of these ten beautifully illustrated modules conveys relevant topics and core biological concepts, and are accompanied by a full suite of supplementary resources in Mastering Biology.


Also available as a Pearson eText or packaged with Mastering Biology:


Pearson eText is a simple-to-use, mobile-optimized, personalized reading experience that can be adopted on its own as the main course material. It lets students highlight, take notes, and review key vocabulary all in one place, even when offline. Seamlessly integrated videos and other rich media engage students and give them access to the help they need, when they need it. Educators can easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their eText and what they learn in class – motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning.

Author Biography

Eric J. Simon is a professor in the Department of Biology and Health Science at New England College in Henniker, New Hampshire.  He teaches introductory biology and human biology to non-science majors, as well as a tropical marine biology course that introduces non-science-majors to underwater field work in Belize. Dr. Simon received a B.A. in biology and computer science and an M.A. in biology from Wesleyan University and a Ph.D. in biochemistry from Harvard University. His research focuses on innovative ways to use technology to improve the teaching and learning of science, particularly to non-science majors. He lives in rural New Hampshire with his wife, two boys, a rotating set of Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, a few dozen chickens, and a leopard gecko. Dr. Simon is the lead author of the introductory non-majors biology textbooks Campbell Essential Biology (7th ed.) and Campbell Essential Biology with Physiology (6th ed.), and a co-author of the introductory biology textbook Campbell Biology: Concepts and Connections (9th ed.), all published by Pearson Benjamin Cummings.
