A Practical Course in Biology.
Belfield, W.; Dearden, M.
This book presents an experimental approach to the teaching of biology in secondary schools. Starting with a unit on microscopy, the study centers on animals. The two particular examples taken are those of the rat and the rabbit. A number of experiments have been suggested on nutrition, circulation, respiration, sweat, excretion, skin, regulation of water balance, reflex actions, and muscular control of posture. The animal study is followed by the study of anatomy and processes in plants. Brief chapters are devoted to the topics of cell properties, growth and differentiation, ecology, genetics and evolution. In the last two chapters culturing techniques and dissection procedures, along with other practical techniques, are described. Instruction on the use of statistical procedures in interpreting biological data is provided with simple examples. (PS)
