BIOZONE’s new VCE Biology: Units 3&4 is dedicated to complete coverage of the updated 2021 VCE Biology Study Design (2022-2026). Now in FULL COLOUR, both VCE titles will also be supported with teacher-controlled access to online model answers, making student self-marking and review easy. 

Specifically designed and written for VCE Biology, this new title, and its companion title VCE Biology: Units 1&2, follow the Unit structure of the study design. Chapters based on key knowledge requirements begin with clear learning outcomes, and include a wealth of new activities developed specifically for the new study design.

VCE Biology: Units 3&4 combines BIOZONE’s clear presentation of content with an inquiry and evidence-based approach designed to engage students and build confidence and skills. Mathematical and practical components of the study design are well supported throughout and students are provided with ample opportunity to develop their skills in data handling, analysis, and experimental design. Practical skills are well supported throughout Unit 3 and special attention has been given to supporting students in their practical investigation and poster presentation in Unit 4.

With VCE Biology: Units 3&4, we deliver a comprehensive, yet accessible, resource for today’s learners, developing the 21st Century skills they need for tomorrow’s world.
