9700 CIE Biological Molecules Examination Pack - Review Sheet, Exam, Answers & Reflection Sheet

9700 CIE Biological Molecules Examination Pack - Review Sheet, Exam, Answers & Reflection Sheet

End of Unit 2 Biological Molecules Assessment for the CIE 9700 Biology AS Level Course. This examination along with answers assesses students on standards 2.1 a, 2.2 a-g, 2.3 a-d. A good mix of Multiple Choice questions and Short Answer Response questions from Cambridge Past Papers. The Review Sheet can be provided to students one week before the assessment to allow students ample study time. This review sheet lists the standards the examination will assess and what they should review. The Reflection Sheet can be provided to students after the assessment has been graded and given back to them. This will allow students to identify which standards they are weakest at and therefore require further review. Happy Examining! :)

CIE 9700 Paper 2 Exam Questions (from 2011) Sortable by Topic From the Current Syllabus

CIE 9700 Paper 2 Exam Questions (from 2011) Sortable by Topic From the Current Syllabus

Are you studing the CIE 9700 Biology course? or are you a teacher preparing students for this course? Then this is the ultimate resource for you. Here you will find all of the Past Paper 2 Exam Questions from Cambridge dating back to 2011 (winter, summer and march papers) in an excel spreadsheet that you can sort BY TOPIC!. Each question has been categorised based on the syllabus codes so you can sort the sheet depending on which topic from the syllabus you would like to review. Extremely handy if you are studying for an end of unit examination or revising at the end of the year OR if you are teacher and need to quickly prepare an end of unit examination or a revision resource. The second tab on the spreadsheet has all the 2017 papers that have been purposefully left out of the sortable sheet on the first tab. This is so students save these papers to use at the end of the year to practice their pacing (or teachers can use for their mocks). If students post their score in the correct cell on this page, then the grade they achieved on that paper will appear. This grade is based off of that years particular grade thresholds. A really useful resource that will save anyone using it a lot of time! My students loved it and I am sure you will too. Check out the link so you can see it before you choose to buy it!

Quantum Mechanics Part 1

Quantum Mechanics Part 1

Starting with Erwin Schrodinger’s cat paradox the two-part Mini lecture ‘Quantum Mechanics’ introduces to the central, quantum mechanical principles for the analysis of microscopic elementary particles: Max Planck’s black body radiation theory, Einstein’s photoelectric effect, Bohr’s atomic model and the Heisenberg’s matrix mechanics and uncertainty principle. The first part of the Mini Lecture “Quantum Mechanics” introduces to the beginnings of quantum mechanics: Beginning with Max Planck’s law of black body radiation to Einstein’s photoelectric effect.

AS/A2 AQA BIO REVISION QUESTIONS

AS/A2 AQA BIO REVISION QUESTIONS

Perfect for AS and A2 AQA biology. I used created and used these two packs of questions for my exam revision and found them extremely useful, they can also be cut up and used as a stick and match task, or as flashcards. Roughly 35 pages of questions in each pack, so useful as an end of lesson review to be filled out throughout the year or to give to students as a pre-exam preparation task. Each question links specifically to a section of the AQA specification.

AQA AS Biology Revision Questions/Quiz (new spec)

AQA AS Biology Revision Questions/Quiz (new spec)

A perfect revision resource for AS biology that allows students to semantically process the content in preparations for their AS exam (or AS paper at A level). They also work well as tests/quizzes to be given throughout the year upon completion of each unit. Questions are organised into subsections according to the specification and all aspects of the new specification are covered so students and teachers don’t need to worry about gaps in their knowledge. If students are able to answer these confidently, they can be sure to achieve high grades in their examinations. Please note: these are not exam style questions, rather questions that can be used for revision. Please see sample image and note that answers are not included but can be easily found in any AS textbook or revision guide. Up to 25 questions for each section included.

Transcription and Translation from DNA to coded traits worksheet

Transcription and Translation from DNA to coded traits worksheet

Worksheet that utilizes the imaginary purple people eater monsters to give students practice transcribing and translating to identify amino acids that code for specific traits. For added fun, students are asked to draw the monsters coded for by the DNA. The worksheet is 12 pages so that each student may have a unique monster! There is a full answer key included for ease of checking student work. Additionally, I have included an excel sheet of the DNA, mRNA, and Amino Acid codes for each trait for ease of making additional monster combinations.

Science end of year quiz

Science end of year quiz

This is a quiz i have made and used with year 7 through to year 11 and the students love it! Half the rounds are science related (periodic table, baby animals, biology, famous scientists, music, sport, brands and more!) I split the students into groups of 3 and keep a running total of marks from each round to give them a bit of competition. The answers are on the powerpoint in the note section so don’t panic! I find it’s a great and engaging, educational end to the year.

Transcription and Translation Class Activity

Transcription and Translation Class Activity

Class activity where students perform the roles of RNA polymerase to transcribe DNA into mRNA. Then the mRNA travels to the cytoplasm, where a ribosome and some tRNA await to translate it into Amino Acids. Provides great review of the processes as well as emphasizing the roles of the 3 types of RNA. Also great for launching discussions about mutations and other important topics. Activity requires some prep work the first time. I recommend in the activity directions that the pieces be laminated for ease of reusing and the pieces be printed on colored paper, but this is not required. Students, other teachers, and administrators love this activity and the finished product is a great display item.
