About this Product


  • Visual analogies are presented to help students apply things they already know from everyday life to concepts with which they are unfamiliar. These analogies enable students to more easily remember and understand the material presented. 
  • The modular format allows students to focus on one key concept at a time, presenting the discussion of a topic on the left-facing page, supported on the right-facing page by large, original, high-quality illustrations.
  • Conceptual and schematic illustrations present difficult concepts in a way that makes these concepts easier for students to understand and allows them to better understand the details they see in their textbook.
  • Integrated activities allow students the opportunity to label diagrams, create their own drawings, or color existing black-and-white illustrations.
  • Practice problems, along with the answers, are integrated into the modules to assess student understanding. By putting pen to paper, students are able to better recall information.
  • Mnemonic devices are used to help students memorize important topics.
  • A visual analogy index provides a table with all of the visual analogies cross-referenced to the appropriate page numbers, making it easier for students to find and review content.
