To help students move away from rote memorization, Campbell Biology in Focus is constructed on a unit-by-unit basis to achieve a balance between the breadth and depth of concepts covered. Students are given the ability to prioritize essential biology content, concepts, and scientific skills through the use of streamlined content. These are the skills that are required to develop conceptual understanding as well as the ability to apply their knowledge in future courses. Based on reviews of over one thousand syllabi from across the country, surveys, curriculum initiatives, reviews, discussions with hundreds of biology professors, and the Vision and Change in Undergraduate Biology Education report, each unit takes an approach to streamlining the material in order to best fit the needs of instructors and students. This is done in order to make the material as efficient as possible.
This foundation is built upon in the third edition to assist students in making connections across chapters, interpreting real data, and synthesizing their knowledge. The Campbell hallmark standards of accuracy, clarity, and pedagogical innovation are maintained throughout the book. Students will be able to actively learn, remember difficult course concepts, and successfully engage with their studies and assessments with the assistance of more than 450 videos and animations that are included in the new edition of Mastering Biology. The new edition also integrates new, key scientific findings throughout.
In addition, this is included with Mastering Biology.
Mastering improves each student's results while also making the learning experience more personalized for them. This is accomplished by combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform. Mastering Biology enables students to extend their learning by providing a platform for them to practice, learn, and apply outside of the classroom. This extension of learning is built for, and directly tied to, the textbook.
