Students will learn how cells, energy, reproduction, and key chemical reactions make it possible for life to develop and thrive. Features include: Detailed glossaries explain new terms and concepts. Annotated illustrations help simplify complex structures and processes. Supports the Next Generation Science Standards for high school physical science concepts.
