Horizons Book Review:

This newly revised and updated Ninth Edition of HORIZONS shows students their place in the universe – not just their location, but also their role as planet dwellers in an evolving universe. Fascinating and engaging, the book illustrates how science works, and how scientists depend on evidence to test hypotheses. Students will learn to focus on the scientific method through the strong central questioning themes of "What are we?" and "How do we know?" Students are also provided with an assessment tool, AceAstronomy, to help test their knowledge of the concepts through assessment, tutorials, and post-tests.

Horizons Book Review:

By using a ''stars-first'' order, Seeds enables the student to understand how a small set of natural processes are responsible for a wide variety of phenomena and a diverse assortment of objects and gain perspective on our planet in relation to the rest of the universe. Breaking from the tradition of structuring a book according to the history of astronomical discoveries, Seeds' organization allows student to understand concepts and processes rather than memorize facts. Seeds' use of figures bolsters this understanding..

The Solar System Book Review:

With this newly revised 5th edition of THE SOLAR SYSTEM, Mike Seeds' goal is to help students use astronomy to understand science and use science to understand what we are. Fascinating and engaging, this text illustrates the scientific method and guides students to answer these fundamental questions: "What are we?" and "How do we know?" In discussing the interplay between evidence and hypothesis, Seeds provides not just facts, but a conceptual framework for understanding the logic of science. The book vividly conveys his love of astronomy, and illustrates how students can comprehend their place in the universe by grasping a small set of physical laws. Crafting a story about astronomy, Mike shows students how to ask questions to gradually puzzle out the beautiful secrets of the physical world. Mathematics is incorporated into the text (and in separate sections for easy reference), but the book's arguments do not depend on mathematical reasoning, keeping even math-averse students engaged. The revision addresses the newest developments and latest discoveries in the field, including evidence of a new world beyond Pluto and new evidence of ancient water on Mars. Students are also provided with an online assessment tool, called AceAstronomy?. Designed specifically to help students prepare for tests and exams, AceAstronomy? improves conceptual understanding by providing a personalized learning plan based on a pre-test diagnostic.
