OCR AS Level Biology A REVISION NOTES

OCR AS Level Biology A REVISION NOTES

Full, detailed and beneficial notes for the AS Level Biology 2015 new specification to help AS Biology students achieve the HIGHEST possible grades. As A Level Biology is a particularly hard and challenging subject to study, revision guides like this are vital to aid in revision and understanding the topic in depth. Using this revision guide and your own revision materials (flashcards, posters, mindmaps etc), studying Biology can become a whole lot easier and less time consuming. Reading a textbook and writing notes can take up alot of student time, especially when you are studying more than one subject so using these ready made notes you can turn them into whatever helps you while revising such as flashcards with consise facts, mindmaps to incorporate other aspects of the topic and posters to aid your revision. Made by a A2 Biology student. NO MORE HEAVY TEXTBOOKS!

Gregor Mendel

Gregor Mendel

An engaging lesson presentation (37 slides) that allows students to understand the contribution that Mendel made to the study of inheritance and genetics. The lesson begins by using a quick competition to get the students to work out the year that he published his findings and to work out his name using the letters of surnames from other famous scientists. Students will learn that he carried out his work on pea plants and the reasons for this. There is a clear link in this lesson to inheritance crosses and understanding genetic terminology as students are challenged to draw genetic diagrams to explain the observed results that Mendel got. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding This lesson is written for GCSE students but is suitable for A level Biology students who are beginning work on the monogenic inheritance topic

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Evaporation & Transpiration

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Evaporation & Transpiration

This lesson is designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology 'Organisation' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications please visit my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience Pupils will firstly be introduced to guard cells and stomata and how they are able t control the loss of water from the plant, diagrams of guard cells turgid and flaccid will help with this description. Pupils will then be given a set of questions which they will complete using a video, once completed pupils can then assess their work using the answers provided. The next slide shows the process of transpiration, pupils are shown a diagram and then descriptions of each stage in the transpiration process are shown stage by stage. You may need lower ability pupils to copy the stages up off the board in note form first. For higher ability pupils after you have gone through it a couple of times you can move the slide forward and pupils will need to write a description of the process of transpiration using the list of key words and diagram as a cue. After this has been completed pupils will then focus on the factors affecting the rate of transpiration, pupils will each be given a slip of information about a factor and how it affects the loss of water from the plant. Pupils will need to swap information with those around them to complete their table. If pupils do not quite finish this task they can assess their work using the completed table provided in the PowerPoint. The last activity is for pupils to complete exam questions on the topic of the lesson. Pupils will be given 6 minutes as it is worth 6 marks, they should try and complete the question in silence at the back of their books if possible. The plenary task is for pupils to write down 6 key words from the lesson. All resources are included in the PowerPoint slides, please let me know if you have any questions in the comments section and leave feedback if you download and use :) thanks!

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Transport in plants

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Transport in plants

This lesson is designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE Biology 'Organisation' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology, Chemistry and Physics specifications please visit my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience The lesson begins by pupils observing a diagram of a phloem and a xylem vessel and discussing what the similarities and differences are between the two tissues. This can lead into a class discussion about the two structures. Next is a quick recap task, pupils should have already looked at the overall function of both of these vessels so pupils now need to complete sentences to describe the role of the xylem an phloem vessel in plants. The next activity is a video, pupils will given a set of questions and they will need to answer these questions using the video. Once finished they can self-assess their work using the answers provided on the PowerPoint. Next, pupils will need to draw two columns in their book entitled Xylem and Phloem and sort statements into these two columns, after this is completed they can assess their work. The last thing students will need to consider is why is transport so important in plants, pupils will discuss/brainstorm in their books why sugars, mineral ions and water are important to the plant. The answers can then be revealed to them. The final activity is a past-paper 6 mark question, pupils will need to attempt to answer this on their own, at the back of their books for an extra challenge! Plenary activity is to complete a summary of what the students have learnt that lesson, a list of key words will be provided to help them complete this task. All resources are included in the PowerPoint, any questions please ask me via the comments section. Any feedback of this lesson would be much appreciated :) thank you!

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Principles of organisation

NEW AQA Trilogy GCSE (2016) Biology - Principles of organisation

This lesson is designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy 'Organisation' SoW within the Biology specification. The lesson starts by a recap on knowledge covered in KS3, pupils are asked to put tissues, cells and organs in order according to size and complexity. Once the answer is revealed pupils are then given definitions of cells, tissues and organs and are will need to answer some questions about the differences between the three structures. Pupils are then given the definition of an organs system and will then need to complete a brainstorm of the different types of organ systems they can think of. On the next slide pupils can self-asses their work using the list of organ system examples. In the next activity, pupils will be given a list and diagrams of different organs, they need to write down which organs they think are present in the digestive system, respiratory system and the water transport system in plants. Once completed pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. The next activity is for pupils to match the correct name of an organ system to the description of its function. Following self-assessment of this task pupils will need to complete a quick recap fill-in-the-blank task. For the last activity pupils are given a card sort of names and diagrams for cells, tissues and organs. They will need to sort these into three columns and they can then self-assess their work. The plenary task is a poster challenge - pupils get into groups and complete a poster of information on the topic of organisation as quickly as possible. Thank you for looking :) any questions please leave a comment and I will get back to you! And any feedback would be appreciated.
