BIOLOGY A Molecular Approach (2006) Interactive Student Edition


BSCS Biology: A Molecular Approach (2006) is a comprehensive, inquiry-based approach to biology. It challenges gifted and honor students to think scientifically, to integrate concepts, to analyze data, and to explore complex issues. This research-based program, developed with funding from the National Science Foundation, supports an inquiry approach to biology. It provides students with the background information needed to ask their own research questions and to conduct their own investigations.
Reading age for native speakers: High School students

- Reflects the latest information in molecular biology with updated content and labs.
- Measures several levels of student abilities with a sequence of assessment options as students apply their knowledge to major concepts.
- Provides correlations of the scope and sequence to the major AP biology themes, and of the investigations to the AP Biology Labs.
