While it is designed to accompany Tarbuck and Lutgens' Earth Science and Foundations of Earth Science, this manual can be used for any Earth Science lab course, in conjunction with any text. The Eighth Edition minimizes the need for faculty instruction in the lab, freeing instructors to interact directly with students. Widely praised for its concise coverage and dynamic illustrations by Dennis Tasa, the text contains twenty-three step-by-step exercises that reinforce major topics in geology, oceanography, meteorology, and astronomy.

This editionincorporates MasteringGeology—the most complete, easy-to-use, engaging tutorial and assessment tool available. This versatile and adaptable collection of introductory-level laboratory experiences goes beyond traditional offerings to examine the basic principles and concepts of the Earth sciences.

This program will provide a better teaching and learning experience—for you and your students. Here’s how:

  • Personalize learning with MasteringGeology: MasteringGeology provides students with engaging and interactive experiences that coach them through introductory physical geography with specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a wide variety of educationally effective content.

  • Improve student preparedness:  Pre-lab lectures explain key ideas that will be explored and eliminate the need for a pre-lab lecture by the professor.

  • Engage students with an art programthat teaches:  SmartFigurescorrelate to QR codes found within the text and are scanned using a mobile device that takes the student to a 2- to 3-minute feature (mini-lesson).

  • Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; My_Lab/Mastering does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and My_Lab/Mastering search for ISBN-10: xx/ISBN-13: xx. That package includes ISBN-10: xx/ISBN-13: xx and ISBN-10: xx/ISBN-13: xx. 

    My_Lab/Mastering is not a self-paced technology and should only be purchased when required by an instructor.
