9780072563306: Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior

We Listened. You Want Science. You Want a Modern Framework. You Want an Easy Prep. You Want Passer/Smith.

WE LISTENED: During the development of Passer/Smith, McGraw-Hill employees observed more than 150 hours of Introductory Psychology classes, hosted three national symposia, and commissioned and read over 200 reviews. From that, WE LEARNED:

• You want to demonstrate to your students that Psychology is a science. Passer’s Research Close-Ups in each chapter provide an inside look at research studies in a scientific journal format.

• You want a framework that will help students tie all of the disparate concepts together and see the field of psychology in a modern way. Passer/Smith’s Levels of Analysis feature does just that, by consistently showing the biological, psychological, and environmental causes of behavior.

• You want all of your resources in one place so you can quickly and easily prep for each lecture. McGraw-Hill's PrepCenter provides all of our instructor resources in an easy-to-use, online site.

The bottom line is that if you use Passer/Smith, you’ll teach a dynamic, modern course with an organizing framework that reflects psychology as a science and that is easier to prep for than your present course.

Product Description:

"Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior" imparts students with a scientific understanding of the field of psychology while showing them the impact on their day-to-day existence. A simple conceptual framework within the text emphasizes relations between biological, psychological, and environmental levels of analysis and portrays the focus of modern psychology. Through a variety of features, the text challenges students to think critically about psychology as a science and its impact on their lives. To help students study more effectively and efficiently, a groundbreaking adaptive questioning diagnostic and personalized study plan help students 'know what they know' while guiding them to master these concepts through engaging interactivities, exercises, and readings. Now available with "Connect Psychology", "Psychology: The Science of Mind and Behavior" follows the science behind psychology, leading students through the process of critical examination.
