For introductory courses for biology majors.
Discover biology, develop skills, and make connections
Known for its discovery-based, student-centered approach, Scott Freeman’s Biological Science emphasizes higher-order thinking, enhances skill development, and promotes active learning. Biological Science equips students with strategies that go beyond memorization and guides them in making connections between core concepts and content, underscoring principles from the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report. Students learn to apply their knowledge throughout the course, assess their level of understanding, and identify the types of cognitive skills that need improvement.
The 7th Edition enables students to see that biology concepts are connected by weaving one case study throughout the entire text, helping students make connections across biology. New content includes updated coverage of advances in genomic editing, global climate change, and recent insights into the evolution of land plants. New embedded Pearson eText assets support content in the text with whiteboard Making Models videos, Figure Walk through videos, and BioFlix animations that engage students, help them learn, and guide them in completing assignments.
