Product Description

This title is a Pearson Global Edition. The Editorial team at Pearson has worked closely with educators around the world to include content which is especially relevant to students outside the United States.

  • ASM guidelines: The American Society of Microbiology has released six underlying concepts and 22 related topics to provide a framework for key microbiological topics deemed to be of lasting importance beyond the classroom. These topics identify what students should understand at a deep level, including the big-picture ramifications of those concepts and how they relate to other issues within the field.  The 13th edition explains the themes and competencies at the beginning of the book and incorporates call-outs when chapter content matches one of these 22 topics. This approach helps students and instructors focus on the enduring understandings of the course and provides a teaching tool for instructors to assess students’ understanding and critical thinking skills. Pearson Mastering Microbiology content is tagged to these statements in addition to book-specific and global learning outcomes.
  • Each Big Picture spread includes an overview that breaks down important concepts into manageable steps and gives students a clear learning framework for related chapters. Each spread includes Key Concepts that help students make the connection between the presented topic and previously learned microbiology principles. Each spread is paired with a coaching activity and assessment questions in Mastering Microbiology.
