We provide a wealth of presentation tools including textbook images in a variety of formats, Power Point outlines, and animations as well as online laboratories, activities and tutorials for students to help make teaching a little easier, and learning a lot more fun.Dr. George Johnson writes in an informal, friendly way, to engage as well as to teach. At every stage, students learn "how things work and why things happen the way they do." The emphasis is placed on telling a story rather than merely naming parts or giving definitions.
