Understanding Biology by Kenneth Mason; George Johnson; Jonathan Losos; Susan SingerA concise and engaging biology text for biology majors, Understanding Biology partnered with Connect emphasizes fundamental concepts to help students better understand biology and focus on developing scientific skills. Condensed chapters are centered on a learning path that serves to connect concepts within a chapter. The learning path begins with learning outcomes, which help students understand the core skills and concepts they should develop. Inquiry and Analysis cases help students build scientific skills, while scaffold end of chapter assessment ensures they not only grasp core concepts, but can also critically analyze and apply what they’ve learned. “Make the Connection,” a synthesis feature that ends every unit, helps students understand the connections between biological concepts, thus helping them “see” the big picture.
