Students investigate biological systems and their interactions, from the perspectives of energy, control, structure and function, change, and exchange in microscopic cellular structures and processes, through to macroscopic ecosystem dynamics. These investigations allow students to extend the skills, knowledge, and understanding that enable them to explore and explain everyday observations, find solutions to biological issues and problems, and understand how biological science impacts on their lives, society, and the environment. They apply their understanding of the interconnectedness of biological systems to evaluate the impact of human activity on the natural world.
It is strongly recommended that each student purchases a Workbook (approximately $50) and a Study Guide (approximately $25).
Recommendation of the Stage 1 Biology Teacher and successful completion of 2 semesters of any Stage 1 Science subject.
