For the first time BIOZONE has created a resource specifically for the Queensland (QCE) Biology syllabus.

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. The development of these skills will ensure students are adequately prepared for the Data Test in Unit 3.

QCE 1&2 features specific formative assessments, developing the skills and knowledge students will require for the summative assessments in Units 3 and 4.

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.
