Synopsis

Cengage Advantage Books: Voyages to the Planets by Sidney C. Wolff, Andrew Fraknoi, David Morrison

Voyages to the Planets provides students and professors with the ideal combination of authors and experience. It is written by an award-winning astronomy educator (Fraknoi) and two distinguished research scientists (Morrison at NASA and Wolff at NOAO). This author team combines the latest science with classroom-tested teaching strategies and a student-friendly approach. Through unique group activities and a focus on astronomy as a human endeavor, the authors engage and involve students, helping them both understand and enjoy astronomy. The Media Update features the latest research and most recent discoveries since the original publication of the Third Edition, including the first pictures from the Huygens landing on Titan, the latest results from the Mars Exploration Rovers, and the most recent images from the Cassini mission to Saturn. Automatically packaged at no additional cost with every new copy of the text, AceAstronomy, Virtual Astronomy Labs, and TheSky[trademark] Planetarium Software CD-ROM , the Media Update provides the strongest package of interactive learning tools available for students of astronomy today.

Reviews

This text is rather unique. The authors have written in a manner that is very accessible. The typical student of today is significantly different from those of 15 or 20 years ago, and this text is a significant step toward addressing the needs of those students.
