In the 2nd printing of the 4th edition of Investigating Biology through Inquiry, all student investigations and instructor information files have been revised. Updated versions of the 22 guided- and open-inquiry investigations are included in the Electronic Resources.

4.1.0 (November 2018)

We are excited to announce the initial release of the 4th edition of Investigating Biology through Inquiry. The printed book has an updated appearance with a new cover design and a flat binding rather than a coil. All investigations have been revised to provide support for collecting data with Go Direct sensors and Graphical Analysis 4 app or Spectral Analysis app. Guided- and open-inquiry versions of all 22 investigations are included in the Electronic Resources.

Two new versions of investigations have also been added to the book for this edition. If using spectrophotometers, you will find a new version of Investigation 6, "Testing Enzyme Activity." Investigation 10, "Sugar Metabolism with Yeast" can now be performed with an ethanol sensor.
