NOTE: Websites #1 and #2 are very good general sites correlated to IB Bio. The others may be
useful as well, but I have not reviewed all of them, especially in the section labeled
“Bookmarks.” These were posted by another IB teacher. Feel free to explore. Let me know if
anything is especially helpful. Thanks, Mr. Baughman

So you don't understand genomics? And you don't understand genetics? The following
GAME website provides simple explanations for genomics using genomics tutorials. It
provides genomics for dummies type explanation analogies for genomics and genetics
extension and education (genomics made easy). Simple explanations for molecular
biology are used to provide DNA and RNA made easy explanations. GAME can be used
as a teachers guide for genomics (Genomics for teachers). It includes simple explanations
for alternative splicing. Alleles for dummies explanations are also provided. It can be
used to explain genomics to high school students and molecular biology for the
layperson. These explanations provide for a greater understanding of genomics.

TOK, Philosophy, links with Biology/ Science
Philosophy In Schools - Philosopher's Zone
Philosophy is about asking childlike questions - how do we know the world exists? How
do we know it hasn't just started existing? Why can't we go back in time? So why not
teach philosophy in schools? It doesn't happen much in this country (it doesn't much
happen anywhere) but it does go on in Queensland, and this week we talk to a
Queensland teacher who's teaching philosophy to high school children.
