A2: Controlling the Breathing Rate. The role of the respiratory centre.

(0)
A complete lesson to introduce the idea of how exercise can increase the rate of ventilation to remove the build up of carbon dioxide. It looks at the negative feedback systems involved which maintain breathing rate. It also introduces spirometer traces and the definitions which which will lead to the core practical (edexcel IAL). There are plenty of discussion opportunities, a video and an exam question for self assessment.

Fast and Slow Twitch Muscle Fibres

(2)
A PPT with information regarding the 2 types of fibres. Students collect information about the fibres from around the room (included in PPT) and complete a table stating the differences. They can then use their knowledge to predict the types of fibres found in different animal muscles. There is an exam question and mark scheme to determine understanding of subject material. I have included the lesson plan I provided when I was observed so feel free to tweak it to suit your group.
