Interactive Microbiology actively engages you in each topic while learning from manipulating variables, predicting outcomes, and answering formative and summative assessment questions.
Each Interactive Microbiology tutorial begins with a clinical case scenario that explores real health care problem-solving. The modules explore challenging and important topics including Operons, Biofilms and Quorum Sensing, Aerobic Respiration in Bacteria, Complement, and more.
NEW! Microbooster video tutorials cover key concepts needed to review (or learn for the first time), including Study Skills, Math, Scientific Terminology, Basic Chemistry, Cell Biology, and Basic Biology.
Finally, there's a better way to learn! We know not every student learns the same way and at the same rate. Dynamic Study Modules assess your performance and activity in real time. They use data and analytics that personalize content to target your particular strengths and weaknesses. And, because we know you’re always on the go, Dynamic Study Modules can be accessed from any computer, tablet, or smartphone!
MicroLab Tutors and Lab Technique Videos prepare you for lab by introducing and assessing your understanding of lab concepts and techniques.
Nineteen Lab Technique Videos show proper procedure and provide assessment to ensure preparedness.
Sixty-seven MicroLab Practical activities give students the opportunity to practice analyzing and interpreting lab results.
Learning Catalytics is an interactive classroom tool that lets you use your smartphone, tablet, or laptop to participate in and stay engaged in lecture. Simply log in and respond to the open-ended questions your instructor posts during class. Your professor can use the results of these questions to help address misunderstandings, start small group discussions, or decide that you’re ready to move on to a new idea. You can also use Learning Catalytics to anonymously let your professor know that you didn’t understand something.
Get Ready for Microbiology helps you prepare for the course through Pre-Tests, Post-Tests with Study Plans, tutorials, animations, activities, and an integrated eText.
Using data gathered from all of the students using the program, Mastering offers wrong-answer feedback that is specific to you. Rather than simply providing feedback of the “right/wrong/try again” variety, Mastering guides you towards the correct final answer without giving the answer away.
Mastering provides hints of two types that help you work through, and ultimately, solve problems. Declarative hints provide advice on how to approach the problem, guiding you to the final answer. Socratic hints break a problem down into smaller sub-problems, which makes it easier for you to complete the original problem.
Using 3D animations, simulations, tutorials, and activities, Mastering utilizes engaging, interactive media to help you learn the toughest topics and succeed in your course.
