pH Scale Display

pH Scale Display

This is a wall display for the pH scale - 14 coloured sheets labeled with the relevant pH number and an everyday example of each at the bottom. There is a 15th sheet with “The pH Scale” as a title sheet. I would recommend you guillotine the borders off before laminating.

A2: Controlling the Breathing Rate. The role of the respiratory centre.

A complete lesson to introduce the idea of how exercise can increase the rate of ventilation to remove the build up of carbon dioxide. It looks at the negative feedback systems involved which maintain breathing rate. It also introduces spirometer traces and the definitions which which will lead to the core practical (edexcel IAL).

A2 Controlling the Heart Rate - cardiovascular control centre

A2 Controlling the Heart Rate - cardiovascular control centre

A lesson which explores the effect of exercise and heart rate on the body. Students learn how to calculate cardiac output. The power point explores the role of the cardiovascular control centre. Students complete a diagram showing how both the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems can increase/decrease the heart rate depending on blood pressure, need for oxygen and glucose. There is a little practical activity when students observe the effect of adrenaline on heart rate and how quickly heart rate changes.
