NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Treating diabetesQuick View

NEW AQA GCSE Trilogy (2016) Biology - Treating diabetes

This lesson is designed for the NEW AQA Trilogy Biology GCSE, particularly the 'Homeostasis' SoW. For more lessons designed to meet specification points for the NEW AQA Trilogy specifications for Biology, Chemistry and Physics please see my shop: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resources/shop/SWiftScience This lesson begins with a quick recap from the previous lesson on the cause and control of diabetes, pupils will need to copy and complete sentences in their books, which can then be self-assessed. Next pupils are given detailed posters of information on the treatments available to patients with type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Pupils will need to read through these posters in pairs/on a table and answer the questions on the PowerPoint slide. Once finished, pupils can self-assess their work using the answers provided. Pupils will now focus on the advantages and disadvantages of different medical cures for type 1 diabetes. In pairs they will be given a set of cards informing them of new advances in treatments available to patients with type 1 diabetes and they will need to create a summary table to weight up the pro's and con's of each treatment. The final activity is an exam question on what pupils have learnt so far that lesson, this is accompanied with a mark scheme which pupils can use to mark their work. The plenary activity is an anagram challenge, pupils need to unscramble the letters to spell a key word from the lesson. All resources are included at the end of the presentation. Thanks for looking, if you have any questions please let me know in the comments section and any feedback would be appreciated :)

10.1 and 10.2 Homeostasis & The structure & function of the human nervous system NEW GCSE spec.Quick View

10.1 and 10.2 Homeostasis & The structure & function of the human nervous system NEW GCSE spec.

Content is for the NEW AQA GCSE Biology specification. 35 slides of fun and engaging activities within this high quality PowerPoint presentation which contains all the resources (in one file!) for two complete lessons. To achieve the following learning objectives: 1) Why it is important to control your internal environment - set of assorted homeostasis cards where pupils take turns to discuss with their partner how their body conditions might change with respect to the images on the cards 2) The key elements of control systems - starter task to match the sense to the sense organ; complete the table: sense, sense organ, stimuli; worksheet (print slide A4 for students to complete (could be used as a potential homework dependent on timing) on homeostasis; plenary - choose the correct meaning for each of the terms. 3) Why you need a nervous system - gap fill exercise with extension task to illustrate how the nervous system detects a change and reacts to it. 4) How the structure of the nervous system is adapted to its function - starter task to sort parts of the body into sense organs, effectors, coordinators; information slides on the structure of the nervous system (CNS, peripheral nervous system). 5) How receptors enable you to respond to changes in your surroundings - information slides on how the nervous system works and the different types of neurons, AfL in gap fill and extension illustration task. 6) How Science Works - Required practical instructions, planning sheet and analysis worksheet with table to complete (print slides A4 for practical write-up), graph to plot results and follow up questions. All activities come complete with fully integrated answers in the PowerPoint for peer/self assessment.

AQA new specification-Control of blood glucose-B11.2Quick View

AQA new specification-Control of blood glucose-B11.2

Control of blood glucose lesson created in accordance to the NEW AQA Specification (9-1) for my separates class (Year 10-KS4). Includes: slide animations, embedded video, practice exam question with mark scheme. This resource is suitable for combined science students. May needed to be edited for foundation students. AQA spec link: 5.3.2 Relevant chapter: B11 Hormonal coordination. AQA Biology third edition textbook-Page 162-163. Blood glucose concentration is monitored and controlled by the pancreas. If the blood glucose concentration is too high, the pancreas produces the hormone insulin that causes glucose to move from the blood into the cells. In liver and muscle cells excess glucose is converted to glycogen for storage. Students should be able to explain how insulin controls blood glucose (sugar) levels in the body. Type 1 diabetes is a disorder in which the pancreas fails to produce sufficient insulin. It is characterised by uncontrolled high blood glucose levels. In Type 2 diabetes the body cells no longer respond to insulin produced by the pancreas. Students should be able to compare Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes and explain how they can be treated. Students should be able to extract information and interpret data from graphs that show the effect of insulin in blood glucose levels in both people with diabetes and people without diabetes. (Will be incorporated in treating diabetes lesson). *Higher content- If the blood glucose concentration is too low, the pancreas produces the hormone glucagon that causes glycogen to be converted into glucose and released into the blood. Students should be able to explain how glucagon interacts with insulin in a negative feedback cycle to control blood glucose (sugar) levels in the body. (Will be mentioned in negative feedback lesson)*

AQA new specification-Removing waste products-B12.2

Removing waste products lesson created in accordance to the NEW AQA Specification (9-1) for my separates class (Year 10-KS4). Includes: slide animations and worksheet. AQA spec link: 5.3.3 Relevant chapter: B12.2-Removing waste products . ( Note: This topic is for BIOLOGY only not for combined science students). AQA Biology third edition textbook-Page 184-185 *The new specification requires students to know the following; Students should be able to explain the effect on cells of osmotic changes in body fluids. Water leaves the body via the lungs during exhalation. Water, ions, and urea are lost from the skin in sweat. There is no control over water, ion, or urea loss by the lungs or skin. Excess water, ions, and urea are removed via the kidneys in the urine. If body cells lose or gain too much water by osmosis they do not function efficiently. The digestion of proteins from the diet results in excess amino acids which need to be excreted safely. In the liver these amino acids are deaminated to form ammonia. Ammonia is toxic and so it is immediately converted to urea for safe excretion.
