  • BOOK OFFERS UNIQUE EMPHASIS ON THE REASONING BEHIND EACH PROCESS. Students go well beyond simply following instructions as they accomplish each task. They explore the context for their complete projects as they learn the “why” behind each step in the process.
  • ROADMAPS FOR EACH MODULE DETAIL PROGRESS. Helpful Roadmaps within each module visually emphasize for students where they are in the process of completing the module project and guide them in tackling more advanced skills and concepts.
  • CONTENT EMPHASIZES CRITICAL THINKING SKILLS. Opportunities to refine critical thinking appear throughout the text within Consider This sections, thought-provoking questions, and problem-solving activities. Numerous end-of-module activities engage students in critical thinking and highlight problem-solving skills as students learn to create their own solutions.
  • BOOK ENCOURAGES PERSONALIZATION. This edition asks students to incorporate personal details in their solutions for every module project and assignment. This not only emphasizes the practicality of what they are learning, but also ensures that each student’s solution will be unique.
