Think-Pair-Share Exercises
With this active learning feature, students work on exercises in pairs or groups in class. Each chapter includes one or two Think-Pair-Share exercises about the chapter-opening story, and more at the end of the chapter. These exercises sometimes ask students to think about genetics in social, ethical, and applied contexts, and may involve connecting material from other chapters.
New Format for Worked Problems
Unlike many other textbooks Ben Pierce writes the exercises and Worked Problems for his text. For this edition, Pierce’s Worked Problems all include a Solution Strategy, Solution Steps, and Hints, giving students a clearly pathway for developing their own problem-solving skills.
NEW Sapling Plus for Pierce
This comprehensive and robust online teaching and learning platform incorporates the e-Book, all instructor and student resources, and instructor assignment and gradebook functionality.
