The Homework Helpers series is just what high school students need to boost their confidence and give them everything they need to ace even the most challenging classes.

Biology is a science full of terms and concepts that range from the hard-to-imagine, such as the structure of an atom, to those we see every day, such as the structure of our own face in the mirror. How are these ideas and concepts related? What's the best way to learn and remember them? Where can a student having trouble find the help he or she needs?

Homework Helpers: Biology covers all of the topics included in a typical one-year Biology curriculum, including:

  • An approach to the study of biology using the scientific method and the skills and equipment used by most biologists.
  • The concept of the cell as the unit of structure and function of all life.
  • DNA and the chemical processes of inheritance.
  • The evolution of life on this planet and how humans are part of the process.
  • The study of the environments of life and how all life is interconnected on this planet.

    Designed to be used with the class textbook (or in place of a totally incomprehensible one!), Homework Helpers: Biology is a user-friendly review book that will make any student or those trying to help him or her feel like he or she has a private Biology tutor. Concepts from the most obvious to the most complex are presented and explained in everyday English with a wide variety of diagrams, charts, and illustrations.
