Experience the Learning

Wiley Visualizing differs from competing textbooks by uniquely combining three powerful elements that deliver a level of rigor in ways that maximize student learning and involvement:

Visual Pedagogy

Based on decades of research on the use of visual learning (Mayer 2005), Wiley Visualizing uses the Cognitive Theory of Multimedia Learning. Wiley's authors select visualizations for their texts that specifically support students' thinking and learning.

Visuals and text are conceived and planned together in ways that clarify and reinforce major concepts while allowing students to understand the details.

Authentic Situations and Problems

Wiley Visualizing texts are enhanced by remarkable photographs, maps, media, and film.

These authentic materials immerse the student in real-life issues and problems, thereby enhancing motivation, learning, and retention (Donovan & Bransford, 2005).

Interactive Multimedia

Wiley Visualizing is based on the understanding that learning is an active process of knowledge construction. Therefore, our Visualizing texts tightly integrate with WileyPLUS, our innovative, research-based, online environment for effecting teaching and learning.

WileyPLUS provides interactive multimedia activities in which learners can actively engage with the materials. The combination of textbook and WileyPLUS provides learners with multiple entry points to the content, giving them greater opportunity to explore concepts, interact with the material and assess their understanding as they progress through the course.
