Ecology Revision Mat

Ecology revision mat following new AQA GCSE trilogy course. I used this as a revision tool prior to both end of topic tests and final GCSE examinations. It could also be given at the start of the topic to act as reading before or during the topic and to help with independence throughout the topic. EBI comments to challenge pupils.

Frog killing fungus - the amphibian plague

Frog killing fungus - the amphibian plague

Interview with Professor Matthew Fisher (Imperial College, London) about his research on the fungus Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis that causes the often lethal disease, Chytridiomycosis in amphibians. Images of dead frogs and video of living frogs and tadpoles. Download a transcript of the interview here: http://www.understandinganimalresearch.org.uk/files/5914/6348/0796/Matthew_Fisher_interview_Imperial_Fungi_Frogs.pdf UAR interviewed Matthew Fisher of Imperial University London about his work on the fungus, Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis (Bd) currently devastating amphibian species around the world. Matthew and his team have been the first to successfully treat infected frogs and their tadpoles. They ‘cured’ individual midwife toads (Alytes obstetricans) with a dilute solution of a fungicide Itraconazole and after cleaning their habitat in the mountains of Majorca were able to re-introduce the species where they had previously become locally extinct. This is the first time amphibians have been successfully re-introduced following an outbreak of Batrachochytrium dendrobatidis. While this method is not an answer to removing the fungus from the wider environment it does make it possible for people to remove threatened species into captivity and maintain them in ‘arks’ until their descendants can be returned to the wild.

AQA Biology Paper 2 GCSE (Combined/Trilogy) Revision power point

AQA Biology Paper 2 GCSE (Combined/Trilogy) Revision power point

This is a revision power point to be used when revising the content of AQA Biology paper 2 - it covers the key areas of the trilogy/combined course. The activities/questions/information slides covering the areas of paper 2 that tend to be most difficult for students and could be used over a number of revision lessons to prepare your students for their exams. The power point includes: An overview of all topics on paper 2 biology Recap of the required practical activities Slides to recap the importance of data and how to ensure data is reliable, reproducible and repeatable Information slides to quickly recap areas of paper 2 Differentiated activities that ask students to apply their knowledge of the different topics. More difficult questions are there to ask students to apply their knowledge to unfamiliar situations. Stretch activities for the more able. One mark questions to quickly recap topics and establish what topics need to be revisited more thoroughly than others. The topic areas that are covered on this revision power point are : The nervous system Hormones negative feedback Menstrual cycle treating infertility contraception meiosis DNA Inheritance Genetic cross Variation The human genome project Classification selective breeding genetic modification Ecology

AQA Biology Paper 2 required practicals

AQA Biology Paper 2 required practicals

This is a great presentation to go over the key elements of the Biology required practicals. The presentation contains all hypothesis, variables, what to expect as your results, how to improve the experiments and some background information. This would be ideal to run through before the exam as a quick reminder, while carrying out the required practicals or to review the practicals once completed or at the end of the year. Please do leave feedback as I aim to make improvements in the resources I produce.
