Geosystems: An Introduction to Physical Geography, Ninth Edition is uniquely organized to present Earth systems topics as they naturally occur: atmosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere and biosphere.
This interconnected and organic systems-based approach is highlighted in the strong pedagogical tools, structured learning path, and up-to-date information found in the text.
This new edition presents bold new features that cultivate an active learning environment both in and outside the classroom. This program will provide an interactive and engaging learning experience for your students.
Teach with current and relevant content: An emphasis on currency, including a new chapter on global climate change, provides students and instructors with the most significant and current information and applications for learning physical geography. Students benefit from self-paced tutorials featuring specific wrong-answer feedback, hints, and a huge variety of educationally effective content to keep them engaged and on track.
Robust diagnostics and unrivalled gradebook reporting allow instructors to pinpoint the weaknesses and misconceptions of a student or class and to provide timely intervention. GeoTutor Activities address dozens of challenging geography topics and coach students towards mastery of these topics using highly visual, kinesthetic, and interactive activities and corresponding assessments, which include hints and specific wrong-answer feedback.
Map Projections activities teach important, hard-to-teach foundational map concepts with interactive animations. MapMaster TM is a powerful interactive map tool that presents assignable layered thematic and place name interactive maps at world and regional scales.
Geoscience Animations activities tied directly to textbook sections and figures help students visualize and master complex physical processes. Provide tools to engage students and give them a better sense of place and an understanding of the physical concepts. Quickly monitor and display student results. With Learning Catalytics you can: Assess students in real time, using open-ended tasks to probe student understanding. Understand immediately where students are and adjust your lecture accordingly.
Access rich analytics to understand student performance. Manage student interactions with intelligent grouping and timing. Teach with current and relevant content NEW!
New Chapter 11 on Global Climate Change provides an up-to-date overview of the current climate change science: evidence for change, climate models, climate forecasts, and ways to mitigate future change. Updated content provides students and instructors with the most significant and current information and applications. Ginger Birkeland joins Robert Christopherson as co-author, bringing a fresh perspective and new examples that enhance the relevance of such content as Geosystems Now, Focus Studies, Critical Thinking, and GeoReports.
Geosystems Now Online is a short section at the end of Geosystems Now providing online links to additional materials for further investigation of the topics discussed. Updated Focus Study essays present additional, in-depth discussions of key geography topics, without interrupting the flow of the core chapter narratives. These essays allow students to actively participate and engage in the content instead of just reading. Leverage strong pedagogical tools and a structured active learning path NEW!
Geosystems in Action explore key chapter concepts with a focus on visuals and structured active learning. Located in each chapter, each feature reinforces Earth systems methodology and connects students to related online media via QR codes. The Human Denominator features connect abstract concepts to real world environments and focuses on the human-Earth dimension of physical geography.
Geography Fundamentals provide a more comprehensive overview of the Scientific Method. Critical Thinking Questions are integrated into appropriate sections of each chapter, giving students the opportunity to stop and demonstrate conceptual understanding and practice critical thinking as they read. Geosystems Connection at the end of each chapter precedes the Key Learning Concepts Review to bridge different chapter concepts by reminding students where they have been and where they are headed.
Key Learning Concepts Review reinforces the key learning concepts in the chapter, providing summaries and key terms under each Key Learning Concept identified on the chapter opener.
