About

Overview

This nine-volume set covers all major umbrellas of science, engineering, technology, mathematics and the medical and health sciences, while providing a comprehensive overview of current scientific knowledge and technology. Aligned with national science standards and high school science curricula, topics cover all major areas of science, including physical science, life science, earth and space science, science and technology. Alphabetically arranged entries and full color photos provide a user-friendly format that makes the broad scope of information easy to access and decipher. Entries typically describe scientific concepts, provide overviews of scientific subjects, and define terms. Longer entries conclude with a bibliography. This 6th edition has been fully updated and includes 34 new entries on key scientific topics in the news bringing the total number of entries over 2,600.
