This is the textbook only without LaunchPad.
Having been written in response to recent and exciting changes in biology, education and technology, this second edition textbook will get your students thinking like biologists. This introductory course title develops three pillars of learning―the text, media, and assessment. Content is created carefully and used to illustrate the connections between the concepts that are crucial to biology.
The second edition continues this careful approach with new examples, figures, assessment questions and a whole new chapter, but they are never disconnected add-ons or extras. The authors are particularly excited about the work they’ve done on the assessment pillar. Not a standard bank of questions; this is a thoughtful curated set of questions that can be used for both teaching and testing. Biology, How Life Works is available with LaunchPad. LaunchPad combines an interactive ebook with high-quality multimedia content and ready-made assessment options, including LearningCurve adaptive quizzing.  See ‘Instructor Resources’ and ‘Student Resources’ for further information.
