Ideal for undergraduates or graduates with little or no science background, Foundations of Earth Science 8th edition provides a highly visual, student-friendly, non-technical survey of our physical environment with balanced, up-to-date coverage of geology, astronomy, meteorology and oceanography. Foundations of Earth Science (PDF) is the brief, ebook version of the best-selling Earth Science by Lutgens and Tarbuck (and illustrated by Tasa), and designed for introductory courses in Earth science. The new Eigth Edition facilitates active learning by incorporating learning objectives throughout each chapter to provide college students with a structured learning path. The learning path is tied to chapter objectives, giving students opportunities to demonstrate their understanding at the end of each section.
Digital Content and Experiences Bring Earth Science To Life. The 8th Edition uses the BouncePages image recognition app (available at no charge on both iOS and Android stores) to connect students’ digital devices to the print textbook, enhancing their learning and reading experience. Lutgens/Tarbuck’s innovative SmartFigures feature has been expanded, adding new digital content via Project Condor, Mobile Field Trips by Michael Collier, Animated Figures, and additional tutorial videos from Callan Bentley. This edition also includes Mastering Geology, the most complete, easy-to-use, engaging tutorial and assessment tool available. (sold separately)
