The Salters-Nuffield (SNAB) 2015 resources have been tried and trusted for over a decade and are the only Biology A level resources that are supported by a dedicated project team, run by the University of York Science Education Group.
Developed in collaboration with schools, educational specialists and scientists from universities and industry, our new 2015 edition of Salters-Nuffield AS/A level Biology continues to offer a context-led approach to A level Biology designed to stimulate scientific interest and enquiry set in real-life contexts.
Our blend of digital and print resources include:
Salters-Nuffield AS/A level Biology focuses on:
Developing a deep subject understanding - SNAB uses real-life contexts to engage students and make learning relevant. Biological principles are introduced as required in each situation, with the whole course carefully designed to develop ideas across contexts, building on ideas to consolidate and extend learning to provide a thorough understanding of the concepts that underpin biology today.
Revisiting ideas in this way allows connections to be made between them, and supports a synoptic approach particularly valuable with the changes to a linear qualification and exams at the end of the two year course.
Understanding the core concepts and acquiring key scientific skills - A key feature of the SNAB course is that students not only develop their biological knowledge and understanding to form a solid basis for any further study in the subject, but they also acquire the wider skills essential to biologists working in the 21st century. SNAB embraces an activity based approach to teaching and learning which is supported by a wealth of print and online resources.
