Biology: The Core by Eric Simon is a textbook designed for non-majors/mixed biology courses, and focuses on core concepts to make biology’s relevance apparent to students. The unique visual and hybrid approach used in this concise 12-chapter textbook presents essential biological concepts. The book uses dynamic figures and illustrations organized into concise, self-contained 2-page modules so that students can quickly focus on the most relevant material. Biology: The Core is a perfect pairing with Mastering Biology, which provides extensive assignment options, activities, and support materials that offer instructors maximum flexibility. The third edition focuses on current issues, and actively encourages students to engage in the non-majors biology course using active learning and flipped classroom strategies. Ready-to-Go Teaching Modules, Current Topic PowerPoint lectures, Mastering assignments, and instructor topic guides are designed to engage students in current issues and create active and relevant lectures. The ten new Core Issues modules help students see the relationship between key concepts and real-world issues such as nutrition, antiobiotic resistance, diabetes, cancer, vaccinations, and more. Biology: The Core is available as a Pearson eText and can be packaged with Mastering Biology.
