The Essentials Workbooks and Key Ideas Textbooks are designed to support the teaching of SACE stage 1 and 2 subjects in South Australia.

Essentials Education’s Biology Workbooks for the SACE Stage 1 Biology integration of the Australian Curriculum are specifically designed for the South Australian requirements.

Written by very experienced authors and teachers Alan Crierie, David Greig and Simon Ruthven, these two workbooks (Workbook A and Workbook B) cover all of the content of the recently revised Year 11 (SACE Stage 1) Biology course. These books are also available in a combined edition.

In addition to addressing the theoretical concepts required, these comprehensive workbooks also provide a variety of written exercises and activities. The appendix for each topic contains suggested answers for students and useful guidance for teachers. There is also a comprehensive glossary of important terms.
