Nuffield co-ordinated sciences: biology
This is a volume in the "Nuffield Co-ordinated Science" series, a scheme designed for fourth and fifth year secondary school pupils. It enables the student to follow a broadly based science scheme, emphasizing the links between the different branches of science, but providing separate textbooks for biology, chemistry and physics.
The complete course consists of five pupils' books, activity sheets to accompany them and a single teachers' guide. This study concentrates on biology, emphasizing the skills and processes of science as well as the pure knowledge content.
The book is designed to be relevant to pupils by drawing on their everyday experiences and stressing the industrial, economic, environmental and social impact of science. The contribution made by distinguished men and women to the development of scientific ideas is also described.
