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 3&4) is comprised of 182 Activities over 290 pages. This comprehensive student resource includes the 4 mandatory practicals, plus 13 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.
