Create stimulating and unique learning experiences that challenge students to think and act like scientists. McGraw-Hill Education’s Honors and Electives programs deliver compelling curriculum and engaging resources that inspire students to deeply explore, clearly connect, and successfully apply the next generation science knowledge and skills that may lead them to STEM-related careers with:
Assuming no prior science knowledge, Hole’s Essentials of Human Anatomy & Physiology High School Edition ©2018 makes difficult concepts relevant and provides students with a solid understanding of the important foundations in anatomy and physiology. This new edition combines the high quality content you’ve come to expect from Hole’s Essentials of Anatomy & Physiology with a high school specific design and includes activities that allow students to apply science and engineering practices, work with real data, and provides support for ELL and ELA. This course also features a new lab manual, with 34 hands-on activities designed to complement any anatomy and physiology course.
Adapted from the highly successful and respected Marine Biology text by Peter Castro Ph.D. and Michael Huber Ph.D., Marine Science ©2016 broadens its coverage with the addition of three new oceanography chapters to help students better understand the oceans’ physical aspects. This expanded content coupled with a stunning new design, learning system, updated features, data analysis labs, a new lab manual with 34 labs that do not require ocean access, and comprehensive digital package make Marine Science the ideal fit for a high school marine science course.
Environmental Science: A Study of Interrelationships,a full-color, introductory environmental science text is known for being concise and conceptual. The approach and reading level cover the basic concepts without overloading students with too much detail. The authors reinforce the text's central theme of interrelationships by providing a historical perspective as well as information on economic and political realities and the role of different social experiences. Then, the authors integrate them with the crucial science to describe the natural world and how we affect it. This book is also suitable for an Elective Environmental Science course.
Inquiry into Life ©2017 offers a unique approach to biology by explaining basic biological concepts and processes with a human emphasis, making biology relevant and understandable to students. Author Dr. Sylvia Mader’s teaching system motivates students to understand and appreciate the wonders of biology. Coupled with a modern digital approach, this traditional learning system is designed to both engage and encourage today’s student.
Zoology ©2016 by Stephen Miller and John Harley offers students an introductory text that is manageable in size and adaptable to a variety of course formats. Zoology emphasizes ecological and evolutionary concepts and helps students understand the process of science through elements of chapter organization and boxed readings. The ecological perspective is stressed throughout the text. Human population and endangered species statistics have been updated. Ecological problems are discussed including an assessment of eight critical environmental processes: biodiversity loss, nitrogen cycling, phosphorus cycling, climate change, ocean acidification, land and freshwater use, and ozone depletion.
