Scientific American Environmental Science for a Changing World
Publication Date 1 Feb 18
OverviewAn engaging, journalistic approach to show students how science works and how to think critically about environmental issues. Each module uses a single, integrated story to provide context for the science with beautifully designed infographics to clarify essential processes and concepts. Each chapter is home to two or more modules that focus on different aspects of a topic, giving instructors flexibility to tailor reading and online assignments to their course. Every module tells a compelling, integrated story, and is built on a pedagogical framework of Guiding Questions to help students identify the scientific concepts that form the basis for the story. This edition also has a dedicated version of Macmillan's online course space, SaplingPlus, home to the interactive eBook, all resources, and pre-built units for each module with ready-to-use assignments and activities for both traditional lecture and active classrooms.
