Synopsis

GCSE Biology Student Book Edexcel by Anne Pilling, John Beeby, Tracey Baxter

Covering the whole of the new 2016 GCSE Biology course, this book is structured around a brand new innovative assessment framework that uses regular check points and tailored intervention to help all students make progress. This book has been entered into the EDEXCEL approval process. Written by a team of expert authors for the 2016 EDEXCEL specification, this book covers the whole of the new GCSE Biology course. It combines clear and comprehensive explanations with a wealth of practice opportunities, and builds the skills that students will need to succeed. * Track students' progress in the new linear GCSE course through a brand new, innovative assessment framework. Teaching is organised into four semesters that function as checkpoints. * Each spread starts with language and ideas at a lower level and increases in complexity, engaging students of all ability levels * Key concept spreads highlight concepts that students must grasp before they can move on * Stipulated practicals spreads in each chapter build and test students' development of the appropriate skills (e.g. analysing, evaluating and applying to different contexts) * Maths skills are embedded throughout the book and tested at the appropriate level * Real-life contexts and applications are included to show the students the relevance of the concepts they are studying * Prepare students for the demands of the new specification with differentiated questions, worked examples and lots of opportunities to practice * Co-teach both Foundation and Higher tier with a single book (the Higher-only content is clearly flagged)
