LaunchPad for How Life Works includes:

The complete Biology: How Life Works interactive e-book

Lead Author Melissa Michael guides the assessment team in refining and expanding our collection of thoughtful, well-curated assessments. Dr. Michael’s role ensures a tight alignment between the assessments and the media and text.

Carefully curated multimedia visuals and assessments, assignable by the instructor and easily accessible by students.

LearningCurve adaptive quizzing that puts “testing to learn” into action, with individualized question sets and feedback for each student based on his or her correct and incorrect responses. All the questions are tied back to the e-book to encourage students to use the resources at hand.

Visual Synthesis Maps—zoomable, dynamic versions of the book’s Visual Synthesis figures that let students explore both the big picture and the details of specific concepts and processes. Many of the Visual Synthesis Maps also include 3-D animations (for concepts that are best learned by seeing them in action) and simulations (for concepts best learned by doing).

Pre-built units that are easy to adapt and augment to fit your course.

A gradebook that provides clear feedback to students and instructors on performance in the course as a whole and individual assignment.

LMS integration allows LaunchPad to be easily integrated into your school’s learning management system so your gradebook and roster are always in sync.
