The Living Environment (New York Edition 2007) Interactive Student Edition


"The Living Environment" provides comprehensive coverage of the required state standards to help meet the Regents exam. To aid student comprehension the conceptual presentation is organized around Themes, Big Ideas, and Main Ideas in biology. Themes are overarching concepts used throughout the entire book that help students make connections between various topics and concepts. Students will be able to see and understand how biology is related to all living things. Big Ideas found on the Unit Opener pages summarize each chapter and help students focus on the topics that relate to the themes. These Big Ideas are broken down into Main Ideas at the section level; the Main Ideas draw students' attention to more specific details. All of the Main Ideas of a chapter add up to the chapter's Big Idea.
