A package; including a 38 page booklet to introduce BTEC Level 3 Health & Social Care Unit 3 Anatomy & Physiology Learning Aim A - A1. Cells and A2. Tissues, A3 Organs A4. Energy in the body and A5. Genetics. This is a Microsoft Word document you can add to or alter to suit your preferred teaching style with areas for students to make notes and consolidate their learning, particularly aimed at Health and Social Care students who say they don’t like science! There are TEN PowerPoint presentations, with embedded video’s, to aid delivery covering the whole of Learning Aim A of the spec, as below…
A1 How cells work
• The function and structure of cells;
rough and smooth endoplasmic reticulum
A2 Characteristics of tissues
The function, structure and location of:
• epithelial – simple (cuboidal, columnar, squamous, ciliated) and compound (simple, keratinised)
• connective – blood, cartilage, bone, areolar, adipose
• muscle – striated, non-striated, cardiac
• nervous – neurones, neuroglia.
A3 The structure and function of body organs
*structure and function of heart
location and structure of lungs
location and structure of the brain,
location of digestion system main structures stomach, liver, pancreas, duodenum, ileum, colon,
location and structures in renal system kidneys, bladder,
location and structure of ovaries/testes, uterus,
structure of skin
A4 Energy in the body
• Transformation of energy (chemical, heat, sound, electrical, light).
• Energy metabolism – role of energy in the body, anabolism and catabolism (aerobic and anaerobic respiration).
• Basal metabolic rate.
A5 Human genetics
• Principles of Mendelian inheritance.
• Genetic variation, to include:
genetic and chromosome disorders
sickle cell disease
• Diagnostic testing for genetic and chromosome disorders, to include
o chorionic villus sampling
To finish, there is a 75 mark exam paper and easy to use mark scheme to assess the learning for A1, A2, A4 and A5, allowing for peer marking to save on time!
