New! Searchable Question Banks
LaunchPad’s enhanced question bank functionality makes it easier to search and select
questions from any of the Life question banks (Test Bank, LearningCurve, Summative Quizzes).
Instructors can get just the mix of questions they want, filtering by:
  •  Learning Outcome (new for the Eleventh Edition)
  •  Key Concept
  •  Bloom’s Level
  •  Difficulty (for LearningCurve questions)
  •  Source
New Release!
LearningCurve adaptive quizzing gives individualized question sets and feedback based on
each student’s correct and incorrect responses. All the questions link back to the e-book to
encourage students to read the book in preparation for classtime and exams.
Updated Interface
LearningCurve’s new streamlined user experience makes features such as the Study Plan,
eBook, and Hints more prominent. Also new—all questions now feature text hints to guide the
student’s thinking.
Instructors can hide topics
LearningCurve organizes chapter quizzes by Key Concept and makes it easy for instructors to
hide questions on concepts they are not covering. With this, each student’s quizzes can focus
on the exact content being taught.
Built to address the biggest classroom issues instructors face, LaunchPad gives students
everything they need to prepare for class and exams, while giving instructors everything they
need to quickly set up a course, shape the content to their syllabus, craft presentations and
lectures, assign and assess homework, and guide the progress of individual students and the
class as a whole.
LaunchPad for this title features:
  •  An interactive e-Book with integrated book-specific student media
  •  LearningCurve adaptive quizzing offering individualized question sets and feedback               (with e-book links) for each student based on correct and incorrect responses.
  •  New! Video Assignment Tool makes it easy to create assessable coursework based on videos from LaunchPad, YouTube, or elsewhere on the Internet.
  •  An easy-to- use Gradebook to monitor the whole class or individual students.
  •  Optional pre-built units, curated by the book’s authors or other experienced educators and fully customizable. These units make assigning all of the rich content found in LaunchPad simple and effective!
  •  All instructor resources (PowerPoints, book images, teaching suggestions, and more) in one convenient location.
  •  Easy LMS integration into any learning management system. LaunchPad also works independently outside of LMS systems.
