Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

In some cities, especially large cities such as Los Angeles or Mexico City, visible air pollution is a major problem, both for human health and the environment. A variety of sources contribute to air pollution, but personal vehicles account for one of the main sources. Though each car has relatively low emissions when compared to vehicles of the 1970s, there are so many more cars on the road now that their emissions play a large role in overall pollution. In this activity, students think about alternate ways to power a vehicle to reduce emissions. Student teams design an eco-friendly car using the engineering design process, and make a presentation to showcase their product.

Gaining Traction: Advanced Drivetrains are Fueling Driver Safety and Experience
Rating

This Analyst Note by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) discusses past and current all-wheel drive (AWD) and four-wheel drive (4WD) technologies and provides a look at present and future systems. These systems include hybrid AWD configurations that increase performance and efficiency as countries implement stricter emission standards. Also discussed are traction control, cost, and market perceptions. Analyst Notes were created by PwC to provide insightful analysis on the global automotive sector in a concise, easily-digestible format.

What lessons can we learn about genetically engineered organisms from the example of the jabberjay, a fictional bird in the movie “The Hunger Games”? In this lesson, students discuss the definition of genetically modified organisms, learn about the risks and benefits of research on G.M.O.’s, explore the growing do-it-yourself biology movement, and develop proposals seeking to either restrict or permit research into genetically modifying the avian flu virus.

Latex and Hybrids: What's the Connection?
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students gain perspective on the intended purpose of hydraulic accumulators and why they might be the next best innovation for hybrid passenger vehicles. They learn about how hydraulic accumulators and hydraulic systems function, specifically how they conserve energy by capturing braking energy usually lost as heat. Students are given the engineering challenge to create small-scale models from which their testing results could be generalized to large-scale latex tubing for a hydraulic accumulator. After watching a video clip of an engineer talking about his lab-based model to test the feasibility of using an elastomer as an energy accumulator, they brainstorm ideas about how latex can be used in a hydraulic system and how they could test the strength of latex for use in a hydraulic accumulator. The concepts of kinetic energy and energy density are briefly discussed.

An Overview of Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) Technologies
Rating

This PowerPoint presentationand labprovide a general overview of HEVsand thetechnologies powering them. Both were developed to enhance automotive courses with HEV technologies through seed funding from theCAAT. The included slides reflect these changes made for HEV technologies. This resource has two areas of focus: HEV theory of operation and safety and service procedures.The following subjects are discussed: Types of HEV systems (Ex: parallel, series, andseries-parallel), safety when working with HEVs (Ex: isolating systems/disable high voltage circuits, high voltage gloves,and insulated tools), testing HEV components (Ex: insulation tests),differences between similar components of standard vehicles and HEV (Ex: intake, motor and transaxle integration), power steering, regenerative braking, and correct service procedures for HEV components (Ex: battery, jump start, multimeter use, and oil change). Differences between types of hybrid systems are compared for the Chevy Volt, Ford Escape Hybrid, and Toyota Prius. After viewing this presentation, a technician should have a basic understanding of HEVs and their differences from traditional vehicles when servicing.
