Edexcel A-Level Biology Topic 5 REVISION (On the Wild Side)

This is a fully-resourced revision lesson that uses a combination of exam questions, understanding checks, quick differentiated tasks and quiz competitions to enable students to assess their understanding of the content found within Topic 5 (On the wild side) of the Pearson Edexcel A-level Biology A specification.

The sub-topics and specification points that are tested within the lesson include:

  • Be able to describe how to carry out a study on the ecology of a habitat
  • Understand the stages of succession
  • Understand the overall reaction of photosynthesis
  • Understand the structure of chloroplasts in relation to their role in photosynthesis
  • Understand the relationship between NPP, GPP and respiration
  • Understand the effect of temperature on enzyme activity and its impact on plants and animals and microorganisms
  • Know how the temperature coefficient Q10 quantifies the rate of an enzyme-catalysed reaction
  • Understand how knowledge of the carbon cycle can be applied to methods to reduce atmopsheric levels of carbon dioxide

A number of the tasks have been differentiated to allow all abilities of student to access the work and there is a big emphasis on the mathematical skills that can be tested in this topic. Students will be engaged through the numerous quiz rounds such as “Can you DEPEND on your knowledge” and “From NUMBERS 2 LETTERS” whilst crucially being able to recognise those areas which require their further attention during general revision or during the lead up to the actual A-level terminal exams
