OCR Biology AS 2.6 Mitosis (New 2015 OCR Spec)

OCR Biology AS 2.6 Mitosis (New 2015 OCR Spec)

This lesson pack was prepared for my Year 12 Biology class on the 10th March 2016. The lesson covers the key areas in Mitosis as required by the new specification and prepares the students for the eventual Formal Mitosis Practical they will be expected to do in their practical workbooks. The lesson was formally observed by two members of staff (as a joint observation) and the lesson’s key strengths as said by the observers (using this lesson pack) were: There was intense learning in the lesson. Differentiation was very advanced and made every segment of the lesson personalised to all students in the class. Stretch and challenge was appropriate for all students. Progress was demonstrated by all students at the end of the lesson. Socratic questioning was highly embedded in the lesson.

AQA A LEVEL BIOLOGY 7402 - SELF MADE PAPER 3

AQA A LEVEL BIOLOGY 7402 - SELF MADE PAPER 3

I often produce my own end of topic tests and decided to produce a whole exam paper. I have also produced a sample Paper 1 which can be found and bought. This is a very demanding and challenging paper designed to stretch candidates. It is probably harder than the actual exam but this would be an ‘extreme’ version of a paper 3 - a paper many students struggle with due to the level of demand of application questions, data analysis and maths.

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.
