Biology with Vernier

Biology with Vernier is the foundational biology book for high school and college courses.


Biology with Vernier has 31 experiments in cell respiration, photosynthesis, membrane diffusion, osmosis, human physiology, transpiration, fermentation, and other important biology concepts. The complete table of contents is shown below. Experiments are included for 12 Vernier biology sensors. This book supports seven AP* Biology lab activities.

If you teach AP, IB, or college biology, you should also consider Advanced Biology with Vernier and Human Physiology with Vernier.

Included with Biology with Vernier

  • Complete student experiments with materials list, step-by-step instructions, data tables, and questions.
  • Teacher Information section for each experiment with complete directions for setting up experiments, helpful hints, and sample graphs and data.
  • Word-processing files of the student sections on a CD so that any experiment may be easily edited to your specifications (Microsoft Word for Macintosh and Windows files).
  • CD includes instructions to perform the experiments on every supported platform:
    • Computer
    • LabQuest in standalone mode
    • Calculator (EasyData and Datamate)

Features listed above are only available when you purchase the lab book. The downloadable evaluation PDFs include student instructions only.
