The Eleventh Edition of Life: The Science of Biology is engaging, active, and focused on teaching the skills that students need in the majors biology course. New pedagogical features grab students’ attention and give them a clear learning path through the text. Active learning is a priority throughout the text and media, including in the brand new and unique Active Learning Guide, giving instructors the support they need to encourage students to "learn by doing." Life continues and improves its focus on experiments and data, ensuring that students learn the skills they need to succeed in their careers. It is this potent combination of expertly crafted pedagogy and engagement that make this new edition the best resource for biology students.

The Eleventh Edition of Life: The Science of Biology retains its reputation as the book with the highest quality content, clarity of language, and experimental emphasis, and the new focus and features make it a Life worth investigating. This textbook 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.

  • ENGAGING : The Investigating Life narrative thread weaves through the chapter to keep students-engaged from the first page to the last. The opening story and question sets the stage for the narrative, a related Experiment and Work with the Data exercise helps reinforce the concepts, and the synthesis and future directions at the end helps wrap up the investigation.
  • ACTIVE: The Active Learning Guide (for instructors) provides invaluable resources and support for-implementing active learning techniques in the classroom. Accompanying the Guide are a-set of full Active Learning Modules, which are comprised of a pre-lecture video, a complete in class exercise, a pre- and post-quiz, and extensive instructor support.
  • FOCUSED ON SKILLS: We lead by example by exposing students to many thoughtful questions throughout the body of the text, reinforcing the importance of asking questions in biology.


  • Active Learning Guide: An excellent primer on active learning in biology
  • Active Learning Modules: Robust modules designed to provide all the support an instructor needs to teach activities. Each module includes a detailed instructor guide, a pre-quiz, a pre-class video, an in-class exercise, a post-quiz and assessment questions
  • Simulations: New simulations on such topics as Macromolecules, Active and Passive Transport, and Natural Selection. Each simulation is now accompanied by an assignable quiz in LaunchPad.
