Pearson, as an active contributor to the biology learning community, is pleased to provide free access to the Classic edition of The Biology Place to all educators and their students.
The purpose of the activities is to help you review material you have already studied in class or have read in your text. Some of the material will extend your knowledge beyond your classwork or textbook reading. At the end of each activity, you can assess your progress through a Self-Quiz.

BioCoach activities allow students to 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 AP® Lab Manual and include sections on key concepts, experiment design, analysis of results, as well as a lab quiz.
The Glossary is a comprehensive, online, easily accessible listing of definitions of the key biological concepts and terms introductory students are likely to encounter.
