Motivate students using compelling healthcare applications.

  • NEW! Micro Matters animated cases connect concepts across chapters and help students recognize the clinical importance of foundational material. Micro Matters videos are accessible via QR codes in select chapters and are also assignable in MasteringMicrobiology.
  • NEW! Interactive Microbiology is a dynamic suite of interactive tutorials and animations that teach key microbiology concepts including Operons, Biofilms and Quorum Sensing, Complement, and Antibiotic Resistance. Interactive Microbiology actively engages students with each topic, enabling them to learn from manipulating variables, predicting outcomes, and answering formative and summative assessment questions. Each tutorial presents the concept within a real healthcare scenario in order to emphasize problem solving and interest students from the beginning.
    • Interactive Microbiology coaching activities are assignable in MasteringMicrobiology, and each is presented in two parts: one for basic concepts, and one as a “scientific thinking” exercise that requires students to apply what they’ve learned to a novel scenario.
  • NEW! Disease in Depth 2-page spreads feature important and representative diseases. These highly visual spreads contain illustrations, micrographs and info-graphics, providing in-depth overviews of selected diseases for comprehensive study and review.
    • NEW! MasteringMicrobiology Disease in Depth coaching activities provide guidance through each disease using personalized hints and feedback and conclude with a prompt for students to complete independent research.
  • Clinical Case Study and Emerging Disease Case Study features discuss a patient’s experience with a microbial disease and conclude with questions for the student to consider.
    • MasteringMicrobiology Clinical Case Study Coaching Activities help students connect microbiological theory to real-world diagnosis and treatment, allowing them to put their knowledge into practice and think like a nurse.
  • Microbe-at-a-Glance boxes showcase representative microbes in each of the disease chapters by combining an illustration of a microbe with concise information about its taxonomy, morphology, virulence factors, resulting diseases, and disease treatment and prevention. Students can download these “snapshots” as handy flashcards for study and review on the go.
    • MasteringMicrobiology activities allow instructors to assess students’ understanding and recognition of these important diseases.
  • MasteringMicrobiology MicroCareers Coaching Activities provide students an opportunity to investigate microbiology principles and diseases from the perspective of various careers, like a pharmaceutical quality control technician, wastewater laboratory technician, or an environmental health specialist.
  • The taxonomic organization of the disease chapters (Chapters 19—25) presents microbial diseases by type of pathogenic microbe, helping students recognize shared characteristics among categories of microbes. For instructors who prefer to organize diseases by body system, Pearson publishes Robert Bauman’s other text, Microbiology with Diseases by Body System.
