With the renowned readability of the Lutgens/Tarbuck/Tasa team, the Eleventh Edition of Essentials of Geology continues to enhance both the approach and the visual presentation that have made this text a best-seller. This revision incorporates a new active learning approach, a more impactful visual program, current content, and more online tools for students.
Written to be understood, current content, and organized in a way that makes reading—and teaching—enjoyable.
Earth science is highly visual, so art and photographs play a critical role. The Eleventh Edition includes a revised visual program that re-conceptualizes 50% of the figures and photos. The result is a high school geology program developed for maximum visual effectiveness.
