Measuring Distribution Practical

Measuring Distribution Practical

A powerpoint that guides pupils through required practical 9 (measuring distribution). Focuses on transect quadrat sampling in a field. Includes; aim of investigation asks pupils to write their own hypothesis provides a method provides a results table questions to guide pupils through making conclusions and evaluating Can be easily adapted by removing the method and results table and asking pupils to produce their own. Can be simplified by using laminated daisy fields or using random quadrat sampling instead. Nicely complemented with a practise exam question to consolidate.

CIE 9700 Paper 2 Exam Questions (from 2011) Sortable by Topic From the Current Syllabus

CIE 9700 Paper 2 Exam Questions (from 2011) Sortable by Topic From the Current Syllabus

Are you studing the CIE 9700 Biology course? or are you a teacher preparing students for this course? Then this is the ultimate resource for you. Here you will find all of the Past Paper 2 Exam Questions from Cambridge dating back to 2011 (winter, summer and march papers) in an excel spreadsheet that you can sort BY TOPIC!. Each question has been categorised based on the syllabus codes so you can sort the sheet depending on which topic from the syllabus you would like to review. Extremely handy if you are studying for an end of unit examination or revising at the end of the year OR if you are teacher and need to quickly prepare an end of unit examination or a revision resource. The second tab on the spreadsheet has all the 2017 papers that have been purposefully left out of the sortable sheet on the first tab. This is so students save these papers to use at the end of the year to practice their pacing (or teachers can use for their mocks). If students post their score in the correct cell on this page, then the grade they achieved on that paper will appear. This grade is based off of that years particular grade thresholds. A really useful resource that will save anyone using it a lot of time! My students loved it and I am sure you will too. Check out the link so you can see it before you choose to buy it!

This resources encompasses a whole lesson on ecosystems and quadrats. It is especially useful as there is no outdoor field work required, so handy for rainy days and difficult classes too. There is a lesson presentation as well as printable worksheets included within the powerpoint. Students can use paper quadrats and paper fields to practice quadrat sampling. I have used this on a lesson observation and it was most successful.
