The ninth edition of Biochemistry remains true to the integrity of the original Stryer text. Showcasing exceptionally clear writing, innovative graphics, coverage of the latest research techniques and advances, and a signature emphasis on physiological and medical relevance.
FOCUS OF THE NINTH EDITION
In developing a ninth edition, the focused on three specific areas to help biochemistry students manage the complexity of the course, engage with the material, and become more proficient problem solvers.
Integrated text and media to help student visualize
Biochemistry is paired for the first time with SaplingPlus, the most innovative digital solution for Biochemistry students. Media-rich resources have been developed to support students’ ability to visualize and understand individual and complex biochemistry concepts. Built-in assessments help students keep on track with reading and become proficient problem solvers with the help and guidance of hints and targeted feedback—ensuring every problem counts as a true learning experience.
Promote effective problem-solving
Tools to help students think critically and approach problem solving. A diverse selection of problem types help students develop skills and strategies to approach both single concept problems and multi-concept problems. Higher order thinking is promoted with unique case studies, new Think/Pair/Share Problems and new specialized problems. Built-in assessments help students keep on track with reading and become proficient problem solvers with the help and guidance of hints and targeted feedback—ensuring every problem counts as a true learning experience.
Provide tools and resources for active learning
A number of new features are designed to help instructors create a more active environment in the classroom. Tools and resources are provided within the text, SaplingPlus and instructor resources.
