Connecting the Dots: Concepts in Biology

Develop a strong conceptual foundation in Biology. Start connecting the dots between different ideas & start thinking from first principles. Relevant for students from all Boards.

For students in Grades 8, 9, 10, from any Board (CBSE/ IB/ IGCSE/ ICSE, etc.)


We were inspired by some recent posts on Social Media about the excessive focus on methods/ short-cuts/ speed, as opposed to foundational understanding. There's plenty of research about typical conceptual gaps in students' understanding at at various age/ grade levels. Our blog post, Conceptual Learning: What, Why and How, provides a more detailed background. 


With this starting point, our mentors sat down to curate a list of such areas that students could do well to have a deep, foundational understanding of, that they can build on, over time. We have identified such topics across Science (Physics, Chemistry, Biology) and Math.


This module is around concepts in Biology - particularly around living/ non-living things, cells, molecules, tissue, organs, etc


The content has been chosen based on a knowledge of common student misconceptions and errors- derived from research as well as the experience base of our mentors.


For each topic, the student experience includes pre-work, live sessions with mentors, assignments/ assessments, and feedback. In addition, students can email their doubts and questions to the mentor at any point of time during the course.


The course comprises 6 sessions of 1.5 hours each. Each session will be on a Saturday, between 2:00-3:30pm.


The course is NOT a tuition service aimed at preparation for exams. These courses are also NOT a substitute for school work.
