Campbell Biology in Focus

AP Biology

Maintaining the Campbell standards of accuracy, clarity, and pedagogical innovation, the new 3rd Edition helps students make connections across chapters, interpret real data, and synthesize knowledge. The latest edition integrates new scientific findings throughout and offers more than 450 videos and animations in Mastering® Biology, which is embedded in the new Pearson eText.

This program fully covers the College Board’s AP® Biology Curriculum Framework and is supported by a wealth of teacher and student materials.


Key Biology Concepts Connect to the Big Ideas

Each chapter is organized around a framework of three to seven Key Concepts that focus on the Big Ideas and provide a context for the supporting details.

Campbell Biology in Focus 3e uses key AP Biology concepts connect to the big ideas.


AP Biology focused questions improve students visual skills.

AP Focused Questions Improve Visual Skills

NEW! Visualizing Figures teach students how to interpret diagrams and models in biology. AP-focused questions that accompany each Visualizing Figure help students connect essential knowledge and Science Practices across the Big Ideas using visual representations and models.


Focus on Scientific Skills and Problem Solving

Scientific Skills Exercises help students master the Framework’s Science Practices by using real data to build key skills needed for biology, including data analysis, graphing, experimental design, and math skills.

NEW! Problem-Solving Exercises guide students in applying scientific skills and interpreting real data in the context of solving a real-world problem.

Campbell Biology in Focus, 3rd Edition focuses on scientific skills and problem-solving.
