New and better than ever, Launching the Imagination treats design as both a verb and a noun—as both a process and a product. Design is deliberate—a process of exploring multiple solutions and choosing the most promising option. Through an immersion in 2-D 3-D and 4-D concepts students are encouraged to develop methods of thinking visually that will serve them throughout their studies and careers.

Building on strengths of the previous five editions Launching the Imagination 6e is even more concise, colorful, comprehensive, contemporary, compelling, and comes powered by Connect.

Connect: A highly reliable, easy-to-use homework and learning management solution that embeds learning science and award-winning adaptive tools to improve student results.
