Photosynthesis

Photosynthesis

No other chemical process is as crucial for the existence of life as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy. This Mini Lecture deals with the basic processes taking place in the chloroplasts of plants with lecture snippets of John Walker, Hartmut Michel, and Steven Chu.

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

2019 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology Revision Guide

This revision guide is 92 pages long. It is composed of closed questions that cover every point of the 2019 0610 Biology syllabus. Pupils complete the revision guide by answering all the questions which gives them a summary of the whole course in one book. This is an essential revision tool and really helps pupils to structure their revision time and should improve their grades. It could even be used during the teaching of content instead of a notebook. This is the version for 2019 exams in June and November. 2020 version to follow. The price of this resource is set high because you can make as many copies as you like for the pupils in your classes. This is considerably cheaper than buying the required number of copies of any revision guide book.

Science Museum Treasure Trail

Science Museum Treasure Trail

This activity is designed to get students to focus and observe the items in the Science Museum e.g. Watson and Crick’s DNA, the enigma machine, Stephenson’s Rocket, petri dish of Fleming’s Penicillium mould etc. Suitable for 11-16 years olds. Answers are included. I have put together 2 tasks for them to complete in teams of 3-4 students. The whole quiz/treasure trail will take ~2 hours dependent on the competiviteness of the group and the team working skills. Task 1: Students need to find the answers to 30 questions in various parts of the museum and complete the answer sheet provided. Task 2: Students need to take 6 team selfies by 6 different objects in the museum. The answer sheet needs to be submitted to a teacher and these will be marked and the group with the highest score will win a prize. The selfies also need to be shown to a member of staff at the end of the trip. Feedback was extremely positive from my students - 15 year old boys. They really enjoyed it and learned something too!

3.6 Organisms Respond To Change Revision Bundle

3.6 Organisms Respond To Change Revision Bundle

Make a huge saving of 33% on these 5 revision resources: Four double-sided A3 revision sheets targeted at topic 3.6 of the AQA A-level syllabus alongside a relay quiz to further reinforce subject knowledge. Nervous Control sheets 1 and 2 deal with synapses, neurons, receptors, resting potential, action potential and more besides. The muscles sheet works through the structure of muscles and muscle types before examining sliding filament theory. The kidneys sheet works fully through the processes of ultrafiltration, reabsorption and osmoregulation. Please Note: I will be adding a further sheet regarding endocrine systems, autonomic control and plant response in the next few weeks.

Nervous Response 2 (A level) Revision Sheet / Knowledge Organiser

Nervous Response 2 (A level) Revision Sheet / Knowledge Organiser

This double sided sheet can be printed at A4 but works better as an A3 resource. This sheet covers the key areas of neuron structure, reflexes and synaptic transmission (including neuromuscular junction, summation, inhibition and drugs). Please note this sheet is part 2 of 2 and, when coupled with Sheet 1, a more comprehensive coverage of the necessary nervous control aspects results. Individual sections contain marking points/scores so as to allow easy feedback and AFL with the included full mark scheme. This gives you flexibility as to how you use the resource and opens up peer assessment/self assessment opportunities.

AQA Combined Science:  Biology Paper 2

AQA Combined Science: Biology Paper 2

AQA Combined Science: Triology Biology Paper 2 This is the revision session that myself and the Head of Science department made and put together for our revision sessions with year elevens. Includes everything that is needed for the whole of Paper 2. Also includes ‘Key Ideas’ booklets which is what the lesson is based from. We personally gave pupils the choice to complete it in lesson as revision or at home as revision. However, only you know your pupils. This is a little late out so may not be able to be used by many for exams 2018 but it can be seperated for year 10s and used next year for mocks and then for GCSEs etc. We will also be creating resources for the Chemistry and Physics exam in the same format- Keep eyes peeled!
