The Third Edition of Nutrition & You provides students with a personalized approach to understanding nutrition and teaches them to become informed consumers of nutrition information through interactive lessons, practical applications, and visual study tools.

Joan Salge Blake writes in a very engaging style, addressing the student directly, using colorful language and visual analogies in order to explain concepts, and captivating students with humor. Blake encourages students to relate the science of nutrition to their own dietary habits, enabling them to separate fact from fiction and to distinguish high-quality nutrient sources from those of lesser quality. Blake’s approach teaches students to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online.

The Third Edition features MasteringNutrition, an online homework, assessment, and tutorial system that allows instructors to personalize the nutrition course like never before with next generation course management tools. Students master topics through interactive mini-lessons, quizzing, and immediate wrong-answer feedback.

Teaching and Learning Experience
This text and supplemental package will provide a better teaching and learning experience–for you and your students. Here’s how:
  • Personalize learning with MasteringNutrition: Improve results by helping students to quickly master concepts with self-paced tutorials that feature immediate wrong-answer feedback and hints that emulate the office-hour experience to keep students on track.
  • Focus on visual learning: Appeal to today’s visual learners with Focus Figures and Visual Chapter Summaries that identify key objectives in a consistent, easy-to-study format. 
  • Emphasize critical thinking: Teach students to think critically about information sources and the claims made in the popular press and online.
  • Emphasize applications: Encourage students to practice with MyDietAnalysis, a software system that allows students to do a diet assignment and then enter their information to create a variety of reports, in addition to other tools.

Note: You are purchasing a standalone product; MasteringNutrition does not come packaged with this content. If you would like to purchase both the physical text and MasteringNutrition search for ISBN-10: 0321908732 /ISBN-13: 9780321908735.
