Pearson; 8th edition
Foundations of Earth Science, 8th Edition provides a highly visual, student-friendly, and non-technical survey of our physical environment with balanced and up-to-date coverage of geology, astronomy, meteorology, and oceanography. This edition is ideal for undergraduates or graduates with little or no science background. Foundations of Earth Science is a condensed, electronic version of the best-selling text Earth Science by Lutgens and Tarbuck (with illustrations by Tasa), and it is intended for use in earth science survey courses. The text is available in a portable document format (PDF). College students now have access to a more structured learning path thanks to the new eighth edition’s incorporation of learning objectives throughout each chapter. This makes active learning much more accessible to students. The learning route is connected to the chapter objectives, and it provides students with opportunities to demonstrate their level of comprehension at the conclusion of each segment.
Content and Experiences Delivered Digitally Bring the science of the earth to life. The 8th Edition connects students’ digital devices to the print textbook in order to enhance their learning and reading experience. This is accomplished through the use of the BouncePages image recognition app, which can be downloaded for free on both the iOS and Android app stores. The ground-breaking SmartFigures feature developed by Lutgens/Tarbuck has been upgraded with the addition of new digital content made available through Project Condor, Mobile Field Trips developed by Michael Collier, Animated Figures, and extra instructional videos created by Callan Bentley. This edition now contains Mastering Geology, which is the most comprehensive, user-friendly, and interesting assessment and tutorial program that is currently accessible. (sold on a separate basis)
