Summary

Now in a paperback format with a new, free workbook built right into the text! LEARNING AND BEHAVIOR looks at learning as an evolutionary mechanism. Chance's book is stimulating, interactive, and filled with high-interest queries and examples. Based on the theme that learning is a biological mechanism that aids survival, this book embraces a scientific approach to behavior but is written in a lucid, clear language. The workbook portion of the book requires students to design experiments to test certain questions raised in the textbook. It also asks the students to use graphs to illustrate and summarize key experimental findings. Other exercises require students to apply the material, some of which require a pet, a roommate or a willing friend to complete. Thought questions require students to synthesize the concepts that they find in the text.
