From its inception, this NSF-sponsored learning system was hailed as a welcome departure from traditional approaches, both in terms of organization and delivery of content. <i>BioInquiry</i> tells the story of the process of science, and so is organized to trace scientists’ journey to biological understanding, beginning with Darwin and evolution. The Third Edition’s unique integration of multimedia – developed in tandem with the text and designed to provide additional dimension to key topics - is now seamlessly housed in the powerful engine of Egrade Plus. The result is an integrated product that presents a more realistic approach to what non-science majors need to be informed citizens and scientifically literate consumers of information.
