Edexcel Biology Scientific Article 2018 Questions: Craving Control

(2)
This resource provides suggestions of exam questions for Paper 3: General and Practical Applications in Biology. I have provided a range of topic areas to include: biological molecules and energy storage Brain function Neurotransmitters Receptors Synapses Neurones and action potentials structure of bacteria Transcription factors Genetic modification Drug trials The immune system Inflammation The resource comes with an answer sheet. I provide the resource as a homework and then go through in class.

IAL Biology Unit 5 Article Questions June 2018 - The nose takes a starring role

(6)
A series of questions focused on the scientific article for the IAL Edexcel exam - unit 5. There is a teacher answer sheet included. I have also included a copy of the Scientific Article from Edexcel Unit 5 Exam and definitions for vocabulary. I have focused on the following topics: • The nervous system – structure and function of each neurone • Action potentials and how an impulse is generated • Synapses • Structure and function of areas of the brain • FMRI scans • The eye • Brain injuries • Critical window • Respiration • PCR and Gel electrophoresis • Speciation This resource helps student´s to focus their revision in the appropriate areas and help develop their exam response.

Fast and Slow Twitch Muscle Fibres

(1)
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.

AS Biology lesson on the process of fertilisation in flowering plants from pollen tube formation to fusion of nuclei. Contains a useful video I found on youtube which explains the process. I have also included a starter activity of labelling the plant parts (IGCSE) and an exam question with mark scheme for self assessment activity.

IAL Edexcel Unit 6 Core Practicals - focusing on question 3

(0)
I have produced these summary sheets for each Core Practical which match the questions in question 3 (planning an experiment). It also makes students plan which statistical test to use and justify why. Experiments include: Daphnia, Vit C, Plant Fibres, Antimicrobial properties of plants, mitosis, ecological sampling, brine shrimp, enzymes, membrane permeability.
Momentum and Car Safety

Momentum and Car Safety

(1)
I have used my own resources and a few slides from other Tes members (thank you!) to put together a PPT which recalls the equation for momentum and then looks at how to calculate force using the change of momentum and time. There are also exam questions included for extra practice!

Surface Area to Volume Ratio in Organisms

(0)
A PPT with complete lesson with different activities to introduce the idea of surface area and volume and how it is affected by the size of an organism. Activities include - calculating the surface area and volume of 3 cubes; explaining why certain cells/organs have a large surface area. There is also an edexcel IGCSE exam question and mark scheme for self assessment.

The role of haemoglobin in the transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide + dissociation curves

(0)
This is a lesson I used for the new IAL which focuses on: the structure of haemoglobin its role in the transport of gases the oxygen dissociation curve of Hb, the Bohr effect and the affinity of fetal Hb compared to an adult. The lesson consists of a lot of independent work + partner work. Students uses the resources available and the PPT to produce detailed notes on the topic and then attempt the exam questions. The exam questions come with a complete mark scheme. I have also included a biofact sheet which I find useful for the more able students. This is not a resource I have created.

A whole lesson plan allowing students to discover the structure and function of the eye. This lesson is following the double award IGCSE for Edexcel and students need to describe the structure and function of the eye. I have not included information about accommodation. This lesson is a lovely introduction to the eye and includes an eye dissection task plus a 3D image starter activity; exam question and brief investigation into the response to bright light.
