Eric Simon’s Biology: The Core combines a succinct, beautifully illustrated 12-chapter textbook with engaging MasteringBiology assignment options and extensive instructor support materials. The Core delivers a uniquely flexible teaching and learning package that supports Active Learning or “Flipped Classroom” teaching techniques, and an emphasis on current issues that relate to basic biological concepts. The modular organization of the text makes it easy for instructors to teach concepts in their preferred order, and powerful online assignment options reinforce those concepts by clarifying the “big picture” and preparing your students with the biological literacy skills required to make informed decisions outside the classroom.


The Second Edition text and MasteringBiology assignment options further revolutionize teaching in and out of the classroom with a greater emphasis on the nature of science and dozens of new opportunities for students to practice basic science literacy skills. The Core’s concise modules continue to focus students’ attention on the most important concepts, combining dynamic figures and illustrations with supporting narrative as the primary source of instruction to create a more engaging and accessible learning experience for students. The new edition has been revised to strengthen the ways the text, MasteringBiology, and the instructor support materials work together in meeting the needs of both instructors and students—before, during, and after class.
