IB Correlations for Biology

The International Baccalaureate program has a complete set of objectives for an IB Biology class at the standard level (SL) and the higher level (HL).

As outlined in the Biology syllabus in the IB Diploma Programme guide, published for the first test in 2009, these objectives are arranged according to series of topics, each with a number of subtopics.

In the table below, we have correlated the topics and subtopics with the experiments that are contained in the books Biology with Vernier and Advanced Biology with Vernier. In addition, we have listed the various Vernier experiments that correlate with options A−H in the IB Guide for Biology.
