Nelson Biology 12 thoroughly equips students with the independent leaning, problem-solving, and research skills that are essential to successfully meet the entrance requirements for university programs. This resource offers students an opportunity for in-depth study of the concepts and processes associated with biological systems, and balances the teaching and learning of theoretical concepts with concrete applications in the areas of metabolic processes, molecular genetics, homeostasis, evolution, and population dynamics.

Features & Benefits:

. Enhanced Text Design is similar to what students will experience with first-year college/university texts
. Self-contained and self-explanatory lessons
. A variety of self-evaluation and self-marking strategies
. Placement of lab activities at the end of chapters parallels the formal separation of theory and labs in university courses
. Extension and weblink strategies provide opportunities to hone individual research and study skills
. A wealth of diagnostic, pre-testing activities
. Regular practice, assessment, and remediation opportunities
. Extends the scope and diversity of student learning through web access strategies and digitally rendered program components
. Ensures seamless articulation with existing Grade 11 Biology resources
