  • Module openings link to the broader outcomes from the Stage 6 Syllabus.
  • Chapter openings link the Stage 6 Syllabus to the chapter content.
  • Biology Inquiry activities. Inquiry based activities that allow students to engage with key concepts through a simple activity. Students discover the science before they learn about it.
  • Biology in Action sections places biology in context. They refer to the nature and practice of biology, applications of biology and the historic development of biological concepts and ideas.
  • BioFiles scattered throughout include interesting facts and real world examples
  • Worked Examples scaffold problems and guide students through solving them. Each worked example is followed by a Try Yourself. This allows students to immediately test their understanding.
  • Skill builders step students through key scientific and mathematical skills that are essential for learning.
  • Additional content goes beyond the core content of the Syllabus. This content is intended for students who wish to expand their depth of understanding
  • Section review includes a summary to assist students consolidate key points and concepts. Each section finishes with questions to test students’ understanding and ability to recall the section’s key concepts.
