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.

Health and disease

Health and disease

A fun, engaging and detailed lesson presentation (36 slides) and accompanying worksheet that ensures that students understanding the meaning of health before looking at communicable and non-communicable diseases. The lesson begins by challenging the students to use an example health survey to complete a definition for health, so that recognise that these means people are free of disease and are healthy both physically and mentally. Moving forwards, students will meet the terms communicable and non-communicable and learn that the key difference between these diseases is whether they can be spread. A quick competition is used to test whether the students can allocate a disease as communicable or non. Time is taken to look at the details of some of these diseases and students will learn that sometimes diseases have aspects of both communicable and non-communicable such as cervical cancer caused by HPV. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. There is a homework set as part of the learning. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but is suitable for use with KS3 students who are looking at the health topic.

Blood clotting

Blood clotting

A concise and interesting lesson presentation (19 slides) and accompanying differentiated worksheets that explore the steps involved in the complex process of clotting the blood. The lesson begins by challenging the students to recognise a picture of Queen Victoria before they learn how she is associated with the disease, haemophilia. Moving forwards, students are challenged to recall that platelets are the part of blood involved in blood clotting. A quick competition is used to maintain engagement and to introduce them to fibrinogen. Students will learn how fibrinogen is converted into fibrin and how the network of fibres produced by this protein traps red blood cells. An incomplete flow diagram is used as the progress check where students have to bring together all of the information they have been given to complete the steps involved in clotting. This lesson has been designed for GCSE students but could be used as a starting point for A-level Biology students. Alternatively, if you are looking for a lesson for A-level, my resource "Blood clotting A-level" may be more suitable
