Anaerobic respiration - GCSE

Anaerobic respiration - GCSE

A fully- resourced lesson which looks at the chemical reaction that is anaerobic respiration and ensures that students can understand why this form of respiration can only be used for short periods of time. The lesson includes an engaging lesson presentation (39 slides), a newspaper article and application questions. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recall information about aerobic respiration to recognise that the sole reactant of anaerobic respiration is glucose. A newspaper article about two atheletes from the 10000m race has been written to challenge the students to recognise why one of the athletes wouldnt be able to compete again in the near future whilst the other could. As a result, students will be introduced to lactic acid and will learn how this poisonous substance prevents muscle contraction and causes cramps. Time is taken to ensure that students are familiar with ATP and specifically that they recognise that a much lower yield is produced in this type of respiration. A perfect opportunity is taken to get the students to carry out a mathematical calculation to compare the yields. Oxygen debt is discussed and related back to the original newspaper article. Finally, anaerobic respiration in plants and yeast is considered in terms of fermentation and the word and symbol equation is written so that it can be compared to those from animals. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson to allow the students to check on their understanding. The lesson has been written for GCSE students but could be used with higher ability KS3 students or A-level students who want a recap before covering the topic in greater detail on their course.

Aerobic respiration - GCSE

Aerobic respiration - GCSE

A resourced lesson which looks at the chemical reaction that is aerobic respiration and ensures that students can apply their knowledge to application questions which challenge them to make links to related topics. The lesson includes an engaging lesson presentation (27 slides) and an associated worksheet containing questions. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recognise a definition for breathing and a definition for respiration. This is aimed at helping them to understand that these are different processes as this is a common misconception made by students. Moving forwards, key details about aerobic respiration are introduced to the students through a range of tasks which include competitions to maintain engagement. Time is taken to ensure that students become familiar with ATP and understand that this is the energy store which will be broken down to release energy for the activities that occur in a living organism. The remainder of the lesson challenges the students to take their new found knowledge of aerobic respiration and apply it to range of unfamiliar situations such as explaining why a root hair cell would have such a large number of mitochondria. There are regular progress checks throughout the lesson to allow the students to check on their understanding. As always, the lesson finishes with a slide containing advanced terminology so that students who have aspirations to take A-level Biology can extend and deepen their knowledge

AQA TRILOGY TRACKER SPREADSHEET

AQA TRILOGY TRACKER SPREADSHEET

A spreadsheet I have been working on to track scores and show progress after end of topic tests and mock exams. I have also included a required practical tracking sheet. In the main spreadsheet, raw end of topic test scores are entered to generate a gcse grade. The look up tables that calculate these grades are editable and in a separate tab on the spreadsheet, they happen to be set up to fit our in house tests that are all standardised out of 25 marks, but can be altered with ease by editing the raw score values. There is also space to record mock scores for biol chem and physics too. These have thier own look up table to add scores into once we know more on boundaries this summer, (the current figures used are purely to test the spreadhseet works). The main spreadhseet on the second tab can be copied and pasted into numerous extra tabs, depending on the number of your classes. Conditional formatting has been used so that once a classes target grades are added to the sheet, progress in relation to target can be colour coded. I haven’t used this live with classes yet, and intend to make a Y11 version and a purely triple version.

Questions Project

This resource is for all in education, from KS1-5 and even at university level, it makes a project out of question making. It is fun, accessible and has great impact. It includes a ready to use generic template, structured stages and prompts. The differentiation opportunities are vast, these can be either by outcome or role allocation (e.g. captains will develop their leadership skills and may be the more able in the group). As stated at the start, it is linked to all levels and types of curricula, standards and specifications. My tip is just to try it out! This resource was prepared by Class Monitor, a secondary school science teacher and senior leader with two decades of experience in education. Class monitor has worked across three countries, has a post graduate qualification in PSHE qualification and an MA in education, find out more and get more ore resources at www.classmonitor.co.uk.

OCR GCSE Biology (9-1) B4 Separate Science and Combined Science Flash Cards

OCR GCSE Biology (9-1) B4 Separate Science and Combined Science Flash Cards

Over 40 flash cards with questions and answers. Questions have been made based on common questions students get wrong and include maths questions. Questions for separate science students have been highlighted in red so these could be removed for combined science students. These flash cards could be given to students after they have completed topic two or saved for when hard core revision begins! Alternatively, I made the flash cards on PPT as I often copy one of the slides over and have my students complete the questions on it as a settler in order to interleave content. The slides have been made in PPT and are fully editable. Print using the ‘Print on both sides. Print on long edge’ option under print settings. My other flash cards have been recommended by TES! Check them out too! Please leave a review with any comments or suggestions:)

Biology revision mindmaps

Biology revision mindmaps

These are my mindmaps for the AQA Biology GCSE specification . I did it for myself when the new spec. 9-1 levels came out. It was my way of identifying how this spec. was structured. It can also be used for the Biology section of Trilogy, although the numbers may not match, the headings will. If a section is in higher tier only it is labelled with (H) and if it is only on the Biology and not the Trilogy it is labelled with (B). Although I did this primarily for myself, some of my colleagues are also using them and when I left my folder open on the desk I found students asking me for copies. I do not claim that they would suit everyone but if you have that sort of need for a complete overview, in a non-linear format, it might suit you. I have some students using them as tick lists, others highlighting the sections they want to cover for revision. I have even offered them at the start of a topic to certain students. Some would be frightened off by them, so you have to be selective. Each mindmap also contains the keywords and their definitions that now need to be learned in the relevant section. Individual mindmaps are available at £4 each.There is also a free resource that is a summary of the whole Biology specification.

GCSE Glossary

The Excel Document contains 390 key words that illustrates to students the importance (and volume) of vocabulary within the biology GCSE (whether International, AQA, OCR or Edexcel). I have also attached how the key words are utilised in topics. This is perfect for revision or as an introduction to a topic. or as ‘Key Word’ tests that are simple to mark and provide good feedback to students and parents. Expensive but definitely worth it! Any questions then please ask.
