Supports and motivates you as you learn to think scientifically and use the skills of a biologist.

 

Scott Freeman’s Biological Science is beloved for its Socratic narrative style, its emphasis on experimental evidence, and its dedication to active learning. In the Fifth Edition, the author team has expanded to include new members bringing a fresh focus on accuracy and currency, and multiplying the dedication to active learning by six.

 

Research indicates that true mastery of content requires a move away from memorization towards active engagement with the material in a focused, personal way. Biological Science is the first introductory biology text designed to equip you with a strategy to accurately assess your level of understanding, predict your performance, and identify the types of cognitive skills that need improvement.

About the Author:

Scott Freeman

Scott Freeman received his Ph.D. in Zoology from the University of Washington and was subsequently awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Postdoctoral Fellowship in Molecular Evolution at Princeton University. His current research focuses on the scholarship of teaching and learning and he recently published two papers on his work: (1) how active learning and peer teaching techniques increase student learning and improve performance in introductory biology (Freeman, S., E. O’Connor, J.W. Parks, M. Cunningham, D. Hurley, D. Haak, C. Dirks, and M.P. Wenderoth. 2007. Prescribed active learning increases performance in introductory biology. CBE–Life Sciences Education 6: 132-139.); and (2) how the levels of exam questions vary among introductory biology courses, standardized post-graduate entrance exams, and professional school courses (Zheng, A.Y., J.K. Lawhorn, T. Lumley, and S. Freeman. 2007. Applications of Bloom’s Taxonomy Debunks the “MCAT Myth.” Science  25 January 2008: 414–415).

 

Kim Quillin

Illustrator, Kim Quillin, combines expertise in biology and information design to create lucid visual representations of biological principles. She received her B.A. in Biology at Oberlin College and her Ph.D. in Integrative Biology from the University of California, Berkeley (as a National Science Foundation Graduate Fellow), and has taught undergraduate biology at both schools. Students and instructors alike have praised Kim’s illustration programs for Biological Science, as well as Biology: A Guide to the Natural World, by David Krogh, and Biology: Science for Life, by Colleen Belk and Virginia Borden, for their success at the visual communication of biology. Kim is a lecturer in the Department of Biological Sciences at Salisbury University.
