A Changing Planet consists of 20 chapters with individual topics that are organized into succinct modules, which allow instructors to easily customize environmental science concepts to best support their unique teaching style and goals. The program’s focus on foundational concepts ensures that students arrive prepared for class and ready to engage in problem solving, discussion, and exploring the most interesting aspects of environmental science. This “read-a-little, do-a-little” approach helps students gain a solid foundation in environmental science in a concise but conceptually rigorous way.

Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel offers an immersive learning experience designed for the way today's students read, think, and learn.
