Helpful Accompanying Subjects:
Students who take this course will building on those ideas from Level 1 Genetics and Inheritance patterns in individuals and populations. They will increase their understanding of cell structure and functioning in life processes.
The study of an ecological community, how animals have adapted to their way of life, and identifying the biological validity of information provided to the public are internally assessed topics.
You will be offered 19-22 achievement standard credits in this course.
Topics covered are: Ecology, Cell Biology, Plant and Animal Diversity, Genetic Variation and Gene Expression
AS 91155 Demonstrate understanding of adaptation of plants or animals to their way of life.
The study of this standard involves showing understanding by linking several biological ideas on the adaptation of living things.
AS 91158 Investigate a pattern in an ecological community, with supervision.
The study of this standard involves using an environmental factor and the biology of interrelated organisms of different species to explain the pattern in an ecological community.
AS 91154 Analyse the biological validity of the information presented to the public.
This internal is optional and the written report may run into the term holidays. The study of this standard involves describing biological features and evaluating their overall impact of the article on the public.
AS 91156 Demonstrate understanding of life processes at the cellular level.
The study of this standard involves linking biological ideas about life processes at the cellular level.
AS 91157 Demonstrate understanding of genetic variation and change.
The study of this standard involves linking biological ideas about genetic variation and change.
AS 91159 Demonstrate understanding of gene expression.
The study of this standard involves linking biological ideas and processes about gene expression.
