This best-selling introduction to the physical and life sciences emphasises concepts over computation and treats equations as a guide to thinking so the reader can connect ideas.
Conceptual Integrated Science covers physics, chemistry, earth science, astronomy, and biology at a level appropriate for non-science students. The conceptual approach relates science to everyday life, is personal and direct, de-emphasises jargon, and emphasises central ideas. The conceptual ideas serve as the foundation supporting and integrating all the sciences.
- Integration and Relevance
- Integrated Science (IS) sections are found in every chapter. They show how the foundational ideas connect the different sciences. End of chapter questions are associated with most IS sections.
- Unifying Concept icons indicate cross references to the same unifying concept in other parts of the book.
- Insights in the margins of the text provide interesting facts or pedagogical aids.
- “Check Yourself” questions and answers throughout the text help students gauge their level of comprehension as they read.
- Math Connection boxes allow students to understand scientific concepts in a quantitative manner. This feature is particularly useful for courses that have math requirements.
- History of Science boxes provide background information on historical experiments and scientific discoveries related to topics discussed in the chapter.
- Technology boxes discuss the scientific principles behind everyday modern technology.
- Science and Society boxes feature current-event topics which relate science to everyday life.
- Boxed and Pedagogical Features are all presented in a flexible format that allows professors to pick and choose content to use in their courses.
