Biology: Living Systems takes a "big picture" approach to teaching biology by focusing on six recurrent themes. Combined with extensive hands-on activities and examples of how biology issues enter students' lives every day, it's an approach that takes student learning far beyond basic facts and terms.

Features
  • This program uses a systems approach to basic biology, making concepts more cohesive. Students begin to see similarities, rather than differences, between and among biology systems.
  • Concepts are continually revisited, so students can understand how biological processes relate to one another.
  • There are unprecedented opportunities for students to gain hands-on experiences through exciting, open-ended labs.
  • Connection features explore the ways biology is linked to other disciplines and to daily life.
  • Constant reinforcement is provided by Section Reviews, which feature critical-thinking exercises, and Skill Reviews, which direct students to apply important thinking processes using information from preceding lessons.
  • Thinking Labs enhance critical thinking and strengthen major lesson ideas.
Teacher Wraparound Edition
  • All the information and teaching help you need for any ability level or learning style are at the point of instruction.
  • Program Resources Boxes, Alternate Labs, Projects, Portfolios, and Performance Tasks give you additional methods to extend and enrich classroom content.
  • Glencoe Technology references and barcodes correlate an exciting array of video and videodisc programs with the text.
