WebCT to accompany BioInquiry: Making Connections in Biology
April 2002, ©2000
- What is the exciting outcome of a group of authors, the NSF, and a publisher working together to create innovative materials for introductory biology?
- Are you interested in using the latest technologies to help students discover important concepts?
- Are you ready to move beyond traditional approaches to one that emphasizes integrated concepts and inquiry-based learning?
Learning about living things is like piecing together a complex puzzle. BioInquiry: Making Connections in Biology, a National Science Foundation-supported project (DUE #9752454), was designed to help students assemble these pieces, to see their connections, and to reveal the beautiful and compelling pictures they create. The text, CD, and web site were developed together from the start to create an engaging, active learning experience. You'll take a virtual tour of the cell, travel with Darwin to the Galápagos Islands, transcribe DNA, perform powerful experiments, and link to the latest biological research on web sites around the world. You'll experience for yourself the profound biological discoveries that forever changed the way we think about life. Enjoy your explorations!
