Some of the new features of these significantly enhanced editions include:

  • A Key Idea introduces each activity, providing a clear focus and “take-home” message for the student.
  • New activities to support student-led inquiry and a larger number of activities involving data analysis and modeling.
  • New case studies and required illustrative examples.
  • New easy-to-use coding for weblinks, content and concept connections, and science practices:
    • Science Practices are well supported through integrated activities in both volumes.
    • Concept and Content Connections codes enable students to make important connections across the entire program.
  • New content to support the 13 required practicals.
  • Both volumes include content adjustments and updates in light of the latest (2015) review of the framework and in keeping with the dynamic nature of science.
  • Review activities at the end of each chapter enable students to test their understanding and are ideal as formative assessment tasks.
  • Synoptic activities suitable as summative assessments conclude each section of work.
