About this book

Geography: Realms, Regions, and Concepts helps readers build and develop their "mental map" of the world around them. Topics covered in this text are diverse and the skills, concepts, ideas, and terms that students are expected to learn are numerous. "Regions" is a time-tested and carefully crafted text with a long history of authority and dependability. The continued focus on creating strong and effective content and technology to empower learning allows instructors to structure their students' learning experience both inside and outside of the classroom. A robust suite of resources, assignments built around raw data, and map quizzes/tests encourage interaction at multiple cognitive levels. Having this interactivity built around "tried-and-true" content will help readers construct and explain their "mental maps" of the world while furthering their understanding and application of important concepts, ideas, and terms.
