Stage 1 Biology A
Subject Name: Biology A
Level: Stage 1
Learning Area: Science
The study of biology is constructed around inquiry into and application of understanding the diversity of life as it has evolved, the structure and function of living things and how they interact with their own and other species and their environments.
By investigating biological systems and their interactions, from the perspectives of energy, control, structure and function, change, and exchange in microscopic cellular structures and processes through to macroscopic ecosystem dynamics, students extend the skills, knowledge, and understanding that enable them to explore and explain everyday observations, find solutions to biological issues and understand how biological science impacts on their lives, society and the environment.
They apply their understanding of the interconnectedness of biological systems to evaluate the impact of human activity on the natural world.
In their study of biology, students inquire into and explain biological phenomena and draw evidence-based conclusions from their investigations of biology-related issues and innovations.
