Product Description
This 12-slide Powerpoint presentation covers 'Topic 2.6 - Structure of DNA & RNA' in the 2016 IB Biology curriculum. Each slide includes the specific learning objective as well as key vocabulary that students should note.

The presentation itself contains minimal information as it is intended to be used with teacher guidance. They are also formatted to be visually pleasing and to print well for handouts or revision. Please see the preview file for an idea of the slide aesthetic and level of detail.

As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
