Overview Information

Developed for the one-semester introductory nutrition course, Nutrition: Science and Applications takes a critical thinking approach to understanding science and nutrition research.  Integrated metabolism presents metabolism in smaller segments, highlighting its relevance to the nutrient being discussed, making challenging topics more manageable and memorable.   A critical thinking approach enhances problem-solving skills and reinforces the “whys” and “hows” behind nutrition processes and controversies.

 With WileyPLUS Learning Space, students create a personalized study plan, assess progress along the way, and make deeper connections as they interact with the course material and each other.
