“The Biology Place, Classic Edition,” from educational publisher Pearson Prentice Hall, is a new web portal that gives high school and college students free access to an abundance of timeless biology resources and tutorials that work with any textbook program. The site contains three interactive sections. BioCoach includes activities to help students visualize and apply their understanding of biological concepts. During these practice activities, students manipulate graphs, complete biological puzzles, and answer questions. LabBench provides students with pre- and post-lab reviews. Animations and interactive questions connect laboratory procedures to biological principles. Designed for advanced students, these activities correspond to the Advanced Placement Lab Manual and include sections on key concepts, experiment design, analysis of results, and a lab quiz, according to the site. There’s also a Glossary of easily accessible definitions and relevant terms for students to consult during class and from home.
