Primary Science forms an introductory to Biology through discussions on environmental issues and major human body systems and their functions. While at secondary education students try out new and interesting practical activities. These promote development of investigative and problem solving skills.
Biology enhances the learners’ interest in learning to; use basic biological principles and concepts in everyday life and new situations, to solve natural problems and to predict or trace future trends by referring to present status of the environment including health issues. The topics are designed in a format that ensures the teaching-learning process integrates theory and practical work experiences. Studying Biology at secondary level promotes understanding and appreciation of systems in organisms, health and environmental issues.
Assessment is through practical and theoretical experiences.
At UCE / O level Biology details include: Diversity of Living Things, Soils, Nutrition in Organisms, Transport in Plants and Animals, Gaseous Exchange and Respiration, Excretion and Homeostasis, Coordination in Plants and Animals, Locomotion, Growth and Development in Plants and Animals, Reproduction in Organisms, Genetics and Evolution, Interrelationships.
