Book Description

for astronomy classes that last for two semesters.

Examining the effects that recent discoveries have had on astronomy, science, and the search for life elsewhere in the universe

The Cosmic Perspective, 9th Edition builds on a long tradition of effective pedagogy and comprehensive coverage to provide a thoroughly engaging and up-to-date introduction to astronomy for anyone who is curious about the universe, regardless of prior background in astronomy or physics. This book is perfect for anyone who wants to learn more about the universe. The authors, who are both well-respected educators and working researchers, present astronomy in a way that is both narratively consistent and thematically driven. This immediately engages students and leads them through the process of connecting ideas. Students' comprehension of the scientific method is improved, and they are more actively involved in the process of acquiring fundamental knowledge, thanks to an engagement-centered instructional approach and a variety of contextualizing features.

The ninth edition has major scientific updates, new content that focuses on the possibility of life in the universe, and recent discoveries that provide modern contexts to help students see astronomy as highly relevant to their worlds now. All of these things are included to help students see that astronomy is highly relevant to their worlds now. The authors incorporate a new emphasis on cultural diversity among scientists and ethics across science and astronomy, delving into scientific work that has been done by a wide variety of people and evaluated in a variety of different ways. The authors write and create a wealth of Mastering Astronomy resources, carrying the coherent and cohesive approach of the book to the new and expanded digital tools such as Prelecture Videos. These resources can be found on the Mastering Astronomy website. In Mastering Astronomy, instructors have access to a curated group of activities that can be used before, during, and after class and have the ability to easily edit the pre-built assignments to fit the manner in which they teach.

Additionally, you can get this book in two volumes, each of which can be purchased on its own:

The ninth edition of The Cosmic Perspective: The Solar System (which includes Chapters 1–13, 14, S1, and 24) is now available.

This ninth edition of The Cosmic Perspective: Stars, Galaxies, and Cosmology includes Chapters 1-3, S1, 4–6, S2–S4, 14–24.

In addition, the Pearson eText can be accessed digitally as a stand-alone product or as part of Mastering Astronomy, which incorporates the Pearson eText.

The Pearson eText provides a user-friendly interface, is suitable for use on mobile devices, and enables individualized reading experiences. It is capable of standing alone as the primary instructional resource. Students are able to highlight important vocabulary, make notes, and review those notes all in one convenient location, even when they are not connected to the internet. Students are more engaged and have access to the assistance they require when they require it as a result of videos and other rich media that have been seamlessly integrated. The table of contents can be easily customized by teachers, and teachers can share their own notes with students so that students can make the connection between what they are reading in their eText and what they are learning in class. This encourages students to continue reading and learning.
