Written in the spirit of the reform movement that is reinvigorating the introductory majors course, Principles of Life cuts through the thicket of excessive detail and factual minutiae to focus on what matters most in the study of biology today. Students explore the most essential biological ideas and information in the context of the field’s defining experiments, and are actively engaged in analyzing research data. The result is a textbook that is hundreds of pages shorter (and significantly less expensive) than the current majors introductory books.

This laboratory manual is designed for an introductory majors biology course with a broad survey of basic laboratory techniques. The experiments and procedures are simple, safe, easy to perform, and especially appropriate for large classes. Few experiments require a second class-meeting to complete the procedure. Each exercise includes many photographs, traditional topics, and experiments that help students learn about life. Procedures within each exercise are numerous and discrete so that an exercise can be tailored to the needs of the students, the style of the instructor, and the facilities available.

A practical how-to book, ENGINEERING COMMUNICATION is more than a guidebook for creating clear, accurate and engaging communication -- it is a complete teaching tool that includes the use of technology to produce dynamic written, oral, and visual communication. There are numerous complete examples, many taken directly from either student or business samples. It also asks students to critically examine the goals and methods of engineering communication. Written with step-by-step instruction on how to create both written and oral communication, the pedagogy includes end-of-chapter exercises to give the students opportunity to use what they have learned, and for the instructor to assess student mastery.
