Biology. Student Investigations and Readings. Investigations in Natural Science.
Renner, John W.; And Others
Investigations in Natural Science is a program in secondary school biology, chemistry, and physics based upon the description of science as a quest for knowledge, not the knowledge itself. This student manual contains the 18 biology investigations. These investigations focus on concepts related to: organisms; classification; populations; producers; food chains; ecosystems; cells; cell transport; circulation; calories; digestion; breathing; responses; locomotion; cell division; reproduction; inheritance; and homeostasis. Each investigation (which is accompanied by a student reading, with questions to answer) includes activities related to the three learning cycle components, namely, exploration, conceptual invention (the idea), and expansion of the idea.
