#### 2016 AQA Biology section 1 - Cell Biology

This PowerPoint covers the entire content for the NEW (draft) AQA Syllabus on Biology section 1 - Cell Biology. It covers: Plant and animal cells, eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, bacteria, structures in a typical plant and animal cell, specialised cells, xylem and phloem, cell differentiation, microscopy, scanning electron microsopes, growing bacteria using agar plates, cell division, mitosis, stem cells, stem cell research, meristems, diffusion, diffusion in the lungs, single celled organisms, gas exchange in fish, how lungs are adapted for gas exchange, osmosis, active transport, root hair cells and how they are adapted, comparing diffusion, osmosis and active transport.

#### Differentiated negative number worksheets

A set of differentiated worksheets on negative numbers. I use the ESP to group students by ability in that topic for that lesson and give them the appropriately leveled resource. Ideas? Corrections? Criticisms? Maths Jokes? Please comment below.

#### Punctuation Worksheets

We initially designed these worksheets to be used in 20 minute tutor periods across the whole of KS3 as part of a Literacy drive. However, they could also be used as starters in skills-based lessons; maybe in the build-up to Functional Skills tests? We hope they're useful, either way!
N.B. The &'worksheets&'; can be projected onto whiteboards: printing/photocopying not necessarily required.
