Biology 11, version 04 (Print)

Biology 11 was revised and updated in 2008 to meet the current IRP. This course is challenging; students who enrol should be seriously interested in the study of life. Some of the topics covered in this course are: the scientific method, inter-relationships of organisms, classification, plant and animal diversity, the process of evolution, and viruses and bacteria.

Due to low sales, please note Kit A (for Modules 1 and 2) and Kit C (for students using a microscope as part of their course) will no longer be offered once stock is depleted.
