Summary

Discover Biology makes biology relevant to students' everyday lives by helping them overcome the big challenges they face-their own apathy about science and the overwhelming amount of information they have to learn in the course. Discover Biology was developed to overcome these challenges and achieve the ultimate goal of every non-majors course-to make students more scientifically literate citizens and voters.
