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!

Mutations

Mutations

A detailed lesson presentation (32 slides) and accompanying worksheet that ensures students know the meaning of a mutation and can explain how these random changes lead to variation within a species. The lesson begins by challenging the students to remember the letters of the nitrogenous bases on DNA to make the word "mutation" and its definition. Moving forwards, students will recall the structure of DNA and be introduced to RNA in case they haven't met before. Students are guided through an example of healthy DNA and transcription and then translation to work out the amino acids that would be synthesised. This provides the template for the students to work through further examples where different mutations have occurred. Students will see that mutations can change the order of amino acids and with reference to enzymes, will understand why this can be an issue. Students will also see that some mutations have no affect and will recognise that mutations and variation are important for changes in a species. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used with A level students who are about to look at gene mutations.
