Biology Teaching and Learning Resources


Biology Teaching and Learning Resources, a companion website for D. G. Mackean’s biology textbooks, supports the teaching of basic concepts and principles in high school biology.

PowerPoint Presentations introduce basic concepts of biology and genetics. All presentations include multiple-choice questions. The presentation on Manipulating Genes (power point icon PPT, 3.3 MB, 44 slides) covers crossbreeding, genetic engineering, cloning, and stem cells. It ends with a ten-question self-correcting quiz.

Experiments comprises 118 activities in food, enzymes, respiration, photosynthesis, diffusion, osmosis, human senses, transport in plants, and germination and tropisms. Bulk downloads of each group of experiments are available.

The Question Bank covers principles of biology, flowering plants, human physiology, genetics and heredity, organisms and their environment, living organisms, and disease transmission and control. Answers are provided for every question set. More demanding exercises are found under Exercises and Discussions and Interactive Questions.

Separate sections for amphibians, birds, fish, fungi, insects, plants, protists, teeth and dentition supply teaching notes, articles, and drawings. Birds: Structure and Function has labeled drawings of external and internal features. An index for articles and drawings facilitates searching.

A select collection of Videos provides a closer look at birds, insects, plants, and protists. Two brief clips reveal bird flight in slow motion.

Links connects teachers and students to additional print and video resources.
