Have there been developments in astronomy that have led you to teach some topics differently from how you learned them as a student? Are your students overwhelmed with the amount of information they need to learn in their astronomy class? Then consider the fresh approach of The Cosmic Perspective, Second Edition Media Update. Built from the ground up on our new understanding of the universe, this student-friendly text focuses on central ideas and unifying themes to provide a cosmic context. Scientific concepts are linked to everyday experience to help students develop an appreciation for the scientific method and to see how physics and astronomy are foundations for understanding their world, and recent discoveries spark students' curiosity in the universe as a whole. Following the widespread critical acclaim for the innovative interactive tutorials on The Astronomy Place, this Media Update includes a significantly expanded suite of tutorials. This Update also includes an electronic textbook CD-ROM, updated planetarium software, and an engaging media workbook. All these tools have been designed to help your students better understand the key concepts.
