Edition: 2nd ed.

Language: English  

Publisher: Chichester, West Sussex : Wiley-Blackwell, 2013

Summary:     Essential Microbiology 2nd Edition is a fully revised comprehensive introductory text aimed at students taking a first course in the subject. It provides an ideal entry into the world of microorganisms, considering all aspects of their biology (structure, metabolism, genetics), and illustrates the remarkable diversity of microbial life by devoting a chapter to each of the main taxonomic groupings. The second part of the book introduces the reader to aspects of applied microbiology, exploring the involvement of microorganisms in areas as diverse as food and drink production, genetic engineering, global recycling systems and infectious disease. Essential Microbiology explains the key points of each topic but avoids overburdening the student with unnecessary detail. Now in full colour it makes extensive use of clear line diagrams to clarify sometimes difficult concepts or mechanisms. A companion web site includes further material including MCQs, enabling the student to assess their understanding of the main concepts that have been covered. This edition has been fully revised and updated to reflect the developments that have occurred in recent years and includes a completely new section devoted to medical microbiology. Students of any life science degree course will find this a concise and valuable introduction to microbiology.

Edition: 6th international ed.

Language: English  

Publisher: Australia : Wadsworth Cengage Learning, [2012]

Summary:     This readable, easy-to-understand book focuses on the developmental sequence of mathematics for young children and its integration with other parts of the curriculum. For each math concept presented, early childhood educators learn how it can be incorporated into music and movement, language and visual arts, science, and social studies for children from birth through age eight. Problem solving is promoted as the major means for constructing concepts with a balance of naturalistic, informal, and structured activities. The content is compatible with national standards and guidelines, providing the tools needed to prepare children to meet these standards. Each concept unit contains assessment, instructional, and evaluation strategies that can be put to use immediately. Additional resources include active approaches to mathematics, resources for establishing learning centers, guidance on parental involvement, lists of children's books with math concepts, and related websites.
