Drive achievement in the MYP and strengthen scientific confidence. Equipping learners with the confident scientific understanding central to progression through the MYP Sciences, this text is fully matched to the Next Chapter curriculum. The inquiry-based structure immerses learners in a concept-based approach, strengthening performance.
Supporting the latest syllabus at SL and HL, this 2014 edition was developed with the IB to most closely embody the IB way of teaching. The holistic approach to all aspects of the syllabus , including Nature of Science, encourages an inquiring, active approach to learning whilst integrated data-based questions support exceptional achievement.
Oxford course books are the only DP resources developed with the IB.
This means that they are:
Offering an unparalleled level of assessment support, IB Prepared: Biology has been developed directly with the IB to provide the most up-to-date, authentic and authoritative guidance on DP assessment.
IB Prepared resources are developed directly with the IB to provide the most up-to-date, authentic and authoritative guidance on DP assessment. IB Prepared: Biology combines a concise review of course content with strategic guidance, past paper material and exam-style practice opportunities, allowing learners to consolidate the knowledge and skills that are essential to success.
Extensive research through lesson observations, teacher interviews and work with our online teacher community (the Cambridge Panel) means that this flexible range of resources meets the real teaching needs of the science classroom. This write-in workbook contains step-by-step guided investigations and practice questions for Cambridge International AS & A Level Biology teachers and students. Through practical investigation, it provides opportunities to develop skills– planning, identifying equipment, creating hypotheses, recording results, analysing data, and evaluating. The workbook is ideal for teachers who find running practical experiments difficult due to lack of time, resources or support. Sample data – if students can’t do the experiments themselves – and answers to the questions are in the teacher’s guide.
