it is a simple subject that can be managed by any teenager with a good teacher and the will to read ahead and to test yourself on topics you may find difficult until you are clear on the topic

mitosis is a kind of cell

mitosis is a kind of cell division which the two new cells are identical to each other.
Meiosis is a kind of cell division also(divides into 4), but it provides variation.

MITOSIS:
Produces Clones
Occurs in normal body cells
Nuclei have identical genes
Ensures the diploid number of chromosomes (all humans have 46 chromosomes n the body cells)

MEIOSIS:
Produces variation
occurs in the gametes
Ensures the haploid number of chromosomes (23)
Nuclei have genes mixed by crossing over

HSB/BIO teacher

HEY everyone..i know u must be excited since some of u are writing the exam in Jan...
If u all need any help with BIo or HSB...feel free to email me ur questions...i am not gonna do anyones homework :) but i am willing to clarify any misconceptions

about HSB vs BIO...like the previous teacher said...HSB deals with more human an social aspects..but with BIO what ever topic u cover on Humans/animals..there is a corresponding plant aspect to it..so HSB is less difficult overall...I do have some students that signed up for both..which doesnt make much sense ...my opinion...if u need bio for a future profession...do it...its a lovely subject...but if u just need "science" subjects to make up ur certificate..then do the HSB..

email me your questions if u would like..

BIO vs HSB

Hello,
Well after working so hard with the BIO do u really want to switch? with labs esp...Bio gives u a lot more options when u need to get a job in the future than HSB...but if u choosin a non science field when ignore my last comment

Switchin should not be hard...Just get a copy of the HSB syllabus and see what u need to complete still....do lots of past papers and u should be good!!

let me know how it goes

Hsb hard or not??

@babydrea In comparison to Biology and Integrated Science, I definitely think that Human and Social Bio is wickedly easier.. No doubt about that.. You basically learn about plants, animals, human behaviour, diseases, etc.. Biology I think is more in depth and challenging, not to say that H&S is a quick cup of tea but its more manageable. : )

DOES IT MAKE A DIFFERENCE

SO DOES IT MAKE ANY SENSE TO DO BOTH HSB AND INTEGRATED SCIENCE BECAUSE I THINK IT IS BASICALLY THE SAME THING BECAUSE BIO IS A PART OF INTE...........THATS WAT I THINK

Difficulty as oppsed to Biology or Science paper

Hello, as a teacher i would not say HSB is easier or more difficult that the other two subject. To put it simply its different. After teaching these subjects the problem which i have to cope with most of the time are Biology students who come into HSB thinking its a (very) diluted version of biology (less of a problem with int science students since they come in expecting something new).And thus are most of the time put back when they find that their biology knowledge doesn't put them above the rest all the time though it does help. HSB is a bit less broad and more in depth on the human and social part (hence the name) and i personally find it a more interesting and easier study since the students are studying a subject with a smaller focus area hence making it easier for them to inter-relate the ideas and concepts. Thats not to say that my biology student can do the same in their biology class.
Best of luck to all you guys taking the HSB, IS or Bio paper.
