Contemporary Nutrition is a complete and balanced resource for nutrition information written at a level non-science majors can understand. Completely revised and up-to-date with MyPlate, Health

Contemporary Nutrition is a complete and balanced resource for nutrition information written at a level non-science majors can understand. Completely revised and up-to-date with MyPlate, Healthy People 2020 and Dietary Guidelines for Americans, 2010, it provides the ideal balance of reliable nutrition information and practical consumer-oriented knowledge. With a friendly writing style, the authors act as the student's personal guide to dispelling common misconceptions and to gaining a solid foundation for making informed nutrition choices.

Contemporary Nutrition emphasizes that a population consists of individuals with varying genetic and cultural backgrounds, and these individuals will have varying responses to diet. The knowledge gained from this text will allow students to personalize nutrition information and empower them to make better choices in their daily lives.

Key Features

  • LearnSmart: This unparalleled intelligent learning system is based on cognitive mapping that diagnoses your students' knowledge of a particular subject then creates an individualized learning path for them. Assigned by you, or used by students as a study tool, the results are automatically recorded in a grade book.
  • NutritionCalcPlus: Backed by a 27,000-food esha database, this diet analysis software provides everything you need to help inspire behavior change in your students. Now integrated with Connect Nutrition ? access made easy!
  • Digital Lecture Capture: Tegrity Campus is a service that allows class time to be any time by automatically capturing every lecture in a searchable video format for students to review at their convenience. With a simple one-click process, you can capture all computer screens and corresponding audio. Students may replay any part of your class with simple browser-based viewing on a PC or Mac. Educators know that the more students can see, hear, and experience class resources, the better they learn. Help turn all your students? study time into learning moments by supplying them with your lecture videos.
  • Build instructional materials wherever, whenever, and however you want! Presentation Center is an online digital library containing assets that can be used to create customized lectures, visually enhanced tests and quizzes, or attractive printed support materials. Access to your book, access to all books! Simply browse, select, and download the files you need to build engaging course materials.
  • McGraw-Hill Higher Education and Blackboard have teamed up! What does this mean for you?

    Now you and your students can access McGraw-Hill's Connect? and Create? right from within your Blackboard course ? all with one single sign-on!

    Not only do you get single sign-on with Connect? and Create?, you also get deep integration of McGraw-Hill content and content engines right in Blackboard. Whether you?re choosing a book for your course or building Connect? assignments, all the tools you need are right where you want them ? inside of Blackboard.

    Are you tired of keeping multiple gradebooks and manually synchronizing grades into Blackboard? We thought so. When a student completes an integrated Connect? assignment, the grade for that assignment automatically (and instantly) feeds your Blackboard grade center.

  • Concept Maps help students better make the mental connections between key aspects of the macronutrients (see Ch. 4, 5, and 6)
  • Learning Outcomes are clearly outlined at the beginning of each chapter. End-of-chapter material is also correlated to the learning outcomes so students and instructors can assess whether they?ve mastered the assigned outcomes. In addition, all online content is tagged to learning outcome so you can quickly and easy pull data related to the outcomes you use (or tag content to your own!).
  • Each chapter culminates with a Case Study that presents a real life situation followed by a list of directed questions to assist students in applying the nutrition knowledge from the chapter. Responses to the Case Study questions are found in Appendix A.
  • ConnectPlus Nutrition allows instructors and students to use art and animations from the text for assignments and lectures. Instructors have access to a variety of resources including assignable and gradable interactive questions, LearnSmart, animation learning modules, diet analysis software and more. The media rich eBook allows students to do full text searches, add notes and highlights, and access their instructor's shared notes and highlights.
