BioInquiry : making connections in biology. Nancy L. Pruitt , Larry S. Underwood , William Surver. From its inception, this NSF-sponsored learning system was hailed as a welcome departure from traditional approaches, both in terms of organization and delivery of content.
BioInquiry tells the story of the process of science, and so is organized to trace scientists' journey to biological understanding, beginning with Darwin and evolution. The Third Edition's unique integration of multimedia - developed in tandem with the text and designed to provide additional dimension to key topics - is now seamlessly housed in the powerful engine of Egrade Plus.
The result is an integrated product that presents a more realistic approach to what non-science majors need to be informed citizens and scientifically literate consumers of information. Even as a Child Darwin Was Interested. Pruitt received a bachelor's degree in biology from Gettysburg College, a master's degree in biology from Wake Forest University, and a Ph.
For the past 17 years, she has taught in the biology department at Colgate University, where her courses include introductory biology, cell biology, and human physiology.
Nancy has authored numerous research articles, several with undergraduate student coauthors, about the cellular adaptations of cold-blooded animals to changes in temperature. She has also written a student workbook to accompany a textbook on cell and molecular biology.
She also organizes an annual program of off-campus study for undergraduate biology students at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Maryland. Nancy lives in Hamilton, New York, with her husband, Dr. Larry S. Underwood received a bachelor of arts degree in biology from the university of Kansas, a master's degree in science education from Syracuse University, and a Ph. He has taught biology at all levels, including middle school, high school, and college. For the past 15 years he taught undergraduate courses in introductory biology, environmental science, methods of field biology, teacher recertification courses in biology, and anatomy and physiology at Northern Virginia Community College, Annandale.
For 22 Years, Larry lived in Alaska where he held several administrative, research, and teaching positions, primarily with the University of Alaska. While there, his research interests centered on cold adaptation of Arctic homeotherms and Arctic human ecology. He has published numerous research papers and five books. Larry is a Passionate Birder and is Active in community affairs, especially those involving environmental concerns.
Larry lives in Manassas, Virginia, with his wife sally, a family therapist and gardener. Between them they have four children and six grandchildren. BioInquiry : making connections in biology Nancy L. Where Are We Now?
BioInquiry: Making Connections in Biology, 3rd Edition
In its First Edition, this NSF-sponsored learning system was hailed as a welcome departure from traditional approaches, both in terms of delivery of content and organization. Now in a new Second Edition, the text continues to present an early introduction of evolution, an effective alternative to front-loaded chemistry, and a seamless integration of various media to help students of varying learning styles gain the most from the biology course. The technology component of the new edition has been thoroughly updated, refined, and streamlined. Experience the story of biological understanding. Like any good tale, the excitement is in how the story unfolds——in the process of discovering how the situation is resolved, in the twists and turns of the plot, and in the personalities of its main characters. The same holds true for biology. This NSF-sponsored text and media package takes a discovery approach in which students learn about biology in the same timeline in which scientists have come to understand biology.
