Each lab focuses on the process of science, allowing students to practice developing a hypothesis, setting up and performing an experiment, and using critical thinking to draw conclusions from their data.
Real world examples engage students with scenarios they can relate to and care about, providing a connection between the lab and their own experience.
In this risk-free setting, guided feedback allows students to make mistakes and learn from them. Immediate feedback and hints instruct students on what to do rather than simply providing the correct answer.
During the experiment, students collect data at the lab bench. They then graph and interpret that data in post-lab activities, where they view collected data and answer questions about what the graphs and data show.
Interactive Labs can replace in-person wet labs, provide an online-only solution, or work with a hybrid lab course.
Instructors can customize the post-lab quizzes available in Mastering.
Written by educators well respected in their fields, Interactive Labs are available for fall 2021 classes. You can access the following subjects with current Pearson non-majors and majors biology titles in Mastering Biology at no additional cost:
