Integrated Science https://www.mheducation.com/cover-images/Jpeg_400-high/1260721485.jpeg 8 2022 9781260721485 Integrated Science is a straightforward, easy-to-read, but substantial introduction to the fundamental behavior of matter and energy in living and nonliving systems. It is intended to serve the needs of non-science majors who must complete one or more science courses as part of a general or basic studies requirement. Integrated Science provides an introduction to a scientific way of thinking as it introduces fundamental scientific concepts, often in historical context. Several features of the text provide opportunities for students to experience the methods of science by evaluating situations from a scientific point of view. While technical language and mathematics are important in developing an understanding of science, only the language and mathematics needed to develop central concepts are used. No prior work in science is assumed.
