Each Chapter in our Biology book begins with Inquiry.

Every Chapter in Miller & Levine Biology opens by presenting students and teachers with an unsolved mystery. As the chapter progresses, clues are scattered through the pages, and students are challenged to put them together with the biological principles examined in the chapter to form a solution.

At Chapter's end, students relate Cause & Effect, make Inferences from their conclusions, construct Predictions on the basis of the evidence, and connect to the Chapter's BigIdea.
