(All Topics and Segments are currently being formatted for mobile devices.)

Subject: Astronomy

The Astronomy topics are designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of one or two-semester introductory astronomy course. They begin with relevant scientific fundamentals and progresses through an exploration of the solar system, stars, galaxies, and cosmology. They help build student understanding through the use of relevant analogies, clear and non-technical explanations, and rich illustrations.

Body Parts & Pieces

Human anatomy is the scientific study of the body’s structures. The word “anatomy” comes from a Greek word that means “to cut apart.” Human anatomy was first studied by observing the exterior of the body and observing the wounds of soldiers and other injuries. Later, physicians were allowed to dissect bodies of the dead to augment their knowledge.

Concepts of Biology

Concepts of Biology is designed for the typical introductory biology course for nonmajors, covering standard scope and sequence requirements. The text includes interesting applications and conveys the major themes of biology, with content that is meaningful and easy to understand. The book is designed to demonstrate biology concepts and to promote scientific literacy.

Concepts of Chemistry

Concepts of  Chemistry is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. They provide an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them.

College Physics

These topics may meet standard scope and sequence requirements for a two-semester introductory algebra-based physics course. They are grounded in real-world examples to help students grasp fundamental physics concepts. They require knowledge of algebra and some trigonometry, but not calculus.

Environmental Biology

These topics enable students to develop a nuanced understanding of today’s most pressing environmental issues as they relate to Biology. They help students grasp scientific foundations for a better understand of the world around them. They may meet the requirements of an introductory-level college science course in some circumstances.

Green Chemistry

These topics cover the growing awareness of and fundamental associations to chemicals in modern societies. Chemistry impacts our lives through reactions with our water, food, clothing, and general health safety.

Introduction to Oceanography

These topics represent an introductory-level university course in oceanography. They cover the fundamentals of geological, chemical, physical, and biological processes in the ocean, with an emphasis on the North Atlantic region.
