Laboratory Manual for Introductory Geology
The first new lab manual for introductory geology in a generation.
A collaboration between best-selling author Stephen Marshak (Earth: Portrait of a Planet and Essentials of Geology) and master teacher Allan Ludman, Laboratory Manual for Introductory Geology’s inquiry-based approach teaches students to ask and answer questions about the physical world in which we live.
The perfect balance between active learning, summary and review.
Inquiry: Marshak’s authoritative and engaging writing coupled with Ludman’s lab-master insight creates a step-by-step learning approach that asks students to think and engage in the lab exercises as geologists.
Active Learning: Hands-on exercises are interspersed throughout each chapter, encouraging students to stop and think—asking them to process the new material and actively apply their new knowledge to an original problem set before moving on to more complicated material.
Visuals and Narrative: Dynamic, pedagogically innovative art is paired with authoritative and proven narrative.
Review: Just the right amount of summary and review material gives students the confidence and information needed to work through the exercises.
New Microcomputer Digital Elevation Maps (MicroDEMs) allow students to explore geologic maps with state-of-the-art technology.
With displays and merges of satellite imagery, MicroDEMs help students develop a richer understanding of geologic mapping by giving them the control to visualize and explore topographic maps as geologists!
A great value for students.
Already priced 20 percent less than the market-leading geology lab manual, Laboratory Manual for Introductory Geology is also available at a 50 percent discount when packaged with either Earth: Portrait of a Planet, Third Edition, or Essentials of Geology, Third Edition.
