Data in Depth offers students a more in-depth exploration of the in-text “Work with Data” feature via interactive modules that further enhance scientific literacy skills via a host of interactive enhancements: data visualizations, experimental design, graphing, and mathematical calculations. I also know that MIT uses this book as well as Harvard, I urge every biology teacher professor to at least have this in their personal library.

Heller has extended his enthusiasm for promoting active learning via the development of a two-year curriculum in human biology for the middle grades, through the production of Virtual Labs—interactive computer-based modules to teach physiology. A new in-text Visual Summary takes the place of standard text-only summaries to help students better master concepts and competencies via a visual trigger (a key in-text figure) and short concise text entries, to aid their memory.

Roark Centennial Professor in Integrative Biology and the Director of the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics at the University of Texas at Austin, where he also has directed the School of Biological Sciences. In addition to "Life", he is the author or coauthor of books on cell biology and on plants, genes, and crop biotechnology. But beware: The information here is incredibly in-depth, so if you're only looking for a basic overview of biology, you may actually want a slightly simpler book, otherwise you may get lost in all the details.Life teaches students the skills and understanding of concepts, experimentation, and data they need to succeed in introductory biology and ultimately in their future STEM careers. It is this potent combination of expertly crafted pedagogy and engagement that make this new edition the best resource for biology students. By engaging students with active discovery, a sharp focus on key concepts, and contemporary examples, Life’s digital update will support students’ learning journey in biology.
