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

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Ordering biological organisms by size (Intro to micro~ and nano~)

Students arrange different biological things in order of size. I used this to introduce my year 7 students to the prefixes micrometre and nanometre. I printed this onto card and have reused it, but you could easily have this as a cut and stick activity. This is an activity I have used with year 7 students all the way to year 11 students.

Scientific article/pre-release Questions. Edexcel GCE Biology A Salters Nuffield Unit 3 2018

Pearson Edexcel GCE Biology A Salters Nuffield Unit 3 2018. Practise/predictive Questions based around the pre-released scientific Article. Both originally devised and modelled on previous exam questions. 20 questions, some multi- part. Full, detailed answers in separate document. The ones I have posted in previous years have had several questions that came up in the actual exam almost exactly and were well reviewed on TES and in my classroom! All a gamble though so I hope these hit the mark this year.
