Sex-linkage

Sex-linkage

A fully-resourced lesson that looks at the inheritance of genes that have their loci on the sex chromosomes. This lesson includes a concise, detailed lesson presentation (27 slides) and a exam question worksheet. The lesson begins by introducing the students to the idea that the 23rd pair of chromosomes in humans are not a homologous pair. Students will see that the Y chromosome is smaller than the X chromosome and will be challenged to explain why males are more likely to suffer from diseases which are carried on the X chromosome. Moving forwards, students are shown how to draw genetic diagrams to carry out crosses including sex-linked characteristics. Time is taken to ensure that students are clear on how to write the parent genotypes and gametes before starting the cross as this is an area where mistakes are commonly made. There are progress checks throughout the lesson so that students can assess their understanding. This lesson has been written for students studying A-level Biology but can be used with those students studying Biology at GCSE where this topic has now entered some of the specifications.

AQA Year 12 Biology revision Monopoly

AQA Year 12 Biology revision Monopoly

This resource was adapted from the Monopoly template: Used in the AQA A-Level Biology specification for the year 12 round up. This game can be played in class or as revision using the rules stated on the board. Students work their way though the specification as they move around the board, learning key facts, completing structural drawings of key components and touching on some lab contents including statistics and variables. The game is easy to download on a power point presentation and once created can be used over and over again.

0610 Biology Experiment Revision Booklet

0610 Biology Experiment Revision Booklet

This is a 20 page revision booklet that covers all of the experiments mentioned in the 0610 Cambridge IGCSE Biology syllabus for the current syllabus. There are short notes about each experiment and pupils have to complete various different activities e.g. identifying variables, drawing diagrams, conclusions etc. This is excellent practise for the Paper 5 or Paper 6 exams. PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVISION GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANSWERS/SOLUTIONS

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. Please contact me if you notice any mistakes and I will edit the resource and upload a new version PLEASE NOTE: THIS REVISION GUIDE DOES NOT INCLUDE ANSWERS/SOLUTIONS DOUBLE CHECK YOU ARE DOWNLOADING THE RIGHT YEAR (WHEN YOUR PUPILS WILL SIT THE IGCSEs)
