What you'll learn

Nau mai, welcome to‚ Biological practical investigation!

This course follows on from:

  • the‚ Level 1 Science Investigations Skills‚ course where you were introduced to the basics of how to plan, carry out and report a science skills investigation
  • 90925 Practical investigations in Biology‚ where you learned some additional biological techniques you might need to know for biological investigations (e.g. transect and quadrat sampling, culturing micro-organisms, preparing slides for and using a microscope) as well as common sources of error when it comes to biology investigations and how to avoid or minimise these.

You should work through those two courses‚ before‚ completing this one.

This course covers the things you'll need to know and be able to do for Achievement Standard 91153 (Biology 2.1)‚ Carry out a practical investigation in a biological context, with supervision, through:

  • reviewing the basic process and skills you, as a developing scientist, need to follow when it comes to planning, carrying out and reporting on a practical investigation in biology
  • providing you with some opportunities to practise these skills on some 'example' investigations.

How you'll learn

People learn in different ways. Here are some of the ways you can learn and interact with the materials in this course.

Self-paced learning‚ This online course is set up so you can learn at your own pace. So, although there are 'suggested' times for each page, they're just a guideline. Plan your learning to suit you.

Diagrams, videos and interactions‚ Some people prefer to learn by reading, some by watching and listening, and some by doing. We've used diagrams and videos alongside the text, so that there's something for everyone!

Practice activities‚ Throughout this course there are lots of short activities. These activities are for you to check your own understanding, not for someone to mark them. These activities give you a great chance to practise what you've learned and compare your answer with the model feedback without being assessed.

Glossary‚ We'll be using some technical words and phrases in this course. To help you grow your vocab around the topics, the course includes an online glossary. When you see a word or phrase underlined in the text, move your cursor over it and a definition will pop up easy as! You can also choose to print a‚ copy of the full glossary.

Discussions‚ Sharing with others can also be a great way to learn. Talk with your classmates and teacher at school about the ideas you come across in this online course. Even chat to your family at the dinner table about the things you're learning if you can explain the ideas to others, you can really be confident in your own understanding.

So, let's get started!
