'Biology cannot go far in its subject without being met by mind'
How to deal with the learning difficulties of biology concepts and generate interest in the subject is a big challenge. We are dealing with this situation by discussing the teaming difficulties in the light of the existing gap between the formal reasoning level demands of the learning material and students' cognitive development. A problem-based learning approach is being used where students work/study in groups to explore a problem. The approach enhances motivation and promotes self-directed and deep learning.
Life is too complicated to permit a complete understanding through the study of whole organisms. Only by simplifying a biological problem-breaking it down into a multitude of individual problems - can you get the answers.
