Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Lincoln

Level 2 Biology 

Biology is the Natural Science that studies life and living organisms, including their physical structure, chemical processes, molecular interactions, physiological mechanisms, development and evolution. Level 2 Biology will begin to build your knowledge and skills of the living world around you and allow you to explore and begin to make sense of some basic Biological concepts. 

The course program will use your investigation skills both in the laboratory and in the field developing your understanding of how biological understanding can be applied in the modern world. Two key themes will be used in the course and focus on Environmental Biology and Human Biology and Health.

 

Biology is the study of the complex things in the Universe. Physics is the study of the simple ones.
