For the first time BIOZONE has created a resource specifically for the Queensland (QCE) Biology curriculum. It features a new design and great new content. Now in full colour, it features a new design and great new content.

This new title (QCE Biology - UNITS 1&2) is comprised of 198 Activities over 290 pages. This comprehensive student resource includes the 8 activities that cover the mandatory practicals, plus 16 activities that address Science as a Human Endeavour (SHE).

This is a completely new resource, with content focussed on engaging with today's students and providing them with the skills to be tomorrow's scientists. 21st century skills are supported throughout, with a specific emphasis on the collection and analysis of data, experimental methods, and student understanding of science as a human endeavour. Activities to support the mandatory and suggested practicals are included and numeracy skills are well supported by both a dedicated skills chapter and integration throughout.

BIOZONE's new QCE titles will provide students with the tools to develop their scientific skills, refine these skills, and provide evidence-based explanations for phenomena. With new ways to approach teaching and learning, including digital options and comprehensive online support for text users, BIOZONE is the obvious choice for today's classrooms.

Activity 9 Practising with Data (page 13)

The calculations for Q4 are in error
4. (a) Percentage calculation for sugars should be 1.6% (not 1.8%)
4 (b) Dietary fibre = 40.9%, Sugars = 18.2%
4 (c) Percentage water = 78.2%


Activity 24 Phospholipids and the Properties of Membranes (page 32)

Corrected text as follows:
Key Idea: Phospholipids are important components of cellular membranes. They are made up of a hydrophilic head region and a hydrophobic tail region, making them amphipathic.


Activity 42 (page 53) Key terms and Ideas: Did You Get It?
Q3(a), the answer for cell volume should be 216 µm cubed (the same as surface area) making the SA:V 1:1. The answer for (c) is unchanged.
