The new syllabus demands that students learn to think critically and adapt the syllabus to new, unseen scenarios to show scientific understanding. Biology is often seen as the softest of the hard sciences. I aim to teach biology in the way that chemistry and physics are taught - systematically and logically. While the science of life is often seen as fickle, each concept has a purpose and meaning behind it, as nothing in life is accidental! However, I also want to draw students attention to the human side of biology, and how our society and its morals influence advancements in science, as well as how we view the world.
