Osmosis and Active Transport AQA A Level Biology

(0)
PowerPoint for complete lesson on osmosis and active transport for AQA A Level Biology 3.2.3 Transport across cell membranes • osmosis (explained in terms of water potential) • active transport (involving the role of carrier proteins and the importance of the hydrolysis of ATP) • co-transport (illustrated by the absorption of sodium ions and glucose by cells lining the mammalian ileum).

Structure of Cell Membranes AQA A Level Biology

(0)
A full lesson PowerPoint for AQA A Level Biology on the structure of cell membranes. 3.2.3 Transport across cell membranes The basic structure of all cell membranes, including cell-surface membranes and the membranes around the cell organelles of eukaryotes, is the same. The arrangement and any movement of phospholipids, proteins, glycoproteins and glycolipids in the fluid-mosaic model of membrane structure. Cholesterol may also be present in cell membranes where it restricts the movement of other molecules making up the membrane.

Simple and Facilitated Diffusion AQA A Level Biology - Transport Across Membranes

(0)
PowerPoint for a complete lesson on transport across membranes, focussing on simple and facilitated diffusion for AQA A Level Biology. 3.2.3 Transport across cell membranes Movement across membranes occurs by: • simple diffusion (involving limitations imposed by the nature of the phospholipid bilayer) • facilitated diffusion (involving the roles of carrier proteins and channel proteins)
Microscopy GCSE AQA Biology light & electron microscopes

Microscopy GCSE AQA Biology light & electron microscopes

(0)
PowerPoint presentation on microscopy - using light microscopes and comparing light and electron microscopes for AQA GCSE Biology. Full lesson using the learning loop format. Learning Objectives:  Prepare slides of plant and animal cells and describe the procedure. Correctly use a microscope to observe cells under different magnifications. Describe the differences in magnification and resolution of light and electron microscopes. Explain how electron microscopy has increased understanding of organelles. Calculate the magnification of a light microscope. Carry out calculations using the formula: real size = image size/magnification Rearrange the equation to calculate image size or magnification. Convert values for the units: cm, mm, µm and nm.

Large PowerPoint covering the whole cell biology topic for AQA GCSE Biology/Combined Science. Eukaryotes, prokaryotes, animal, plant and bacterial cells, cell specialisation, microscopes, mitosis and the cell cycle, stem cell, diffusion, osmosis and active transport.
AQA Species, Courtship and Classification A Level Biology
BioInspiredBioInspired

AQA Species, Courtship and Classification A Level Biology

(0)
PowerPoint presentation on species, courtship behaviour and classification - used for AQA A Level Biology (2 hour lesson) but could be easily adapted. Topic 3.4.5 Specification points covered: Two organisms belong to the same species if they are able to produce fertile offspring. Courtship behaviour as a necessary precursor to successful mating. The role of courtship in species recognition. A phylogenetic classification system attempts to arrange species into groups based on their evolutionary origins and relationships. It uses a hierarchy in which smaller groups are placed within larger groups, with no overlap between groups. Each group is called a taxon (plural taxa). One hierarchy comprises the taxa: domain, kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus and species. Each species is universally identified by a binomial consisting of the name of its genus and species, eg, Homo sapiens.
Science Placemat

Science Placemat

(2)
A science placemat to print in A3 and laminate. Stick a few down on tables or around the edge of the room so pupils can use them as a self-help resource. Includes naming common equipment, units, drawing graphs, designing experiment and other core skills for science at KS3/4. Placemat is in Word format so feel free to edit it in any way you wish to suit your classes needs. NOTE: check format before printing- format may be skewed if opening in different versions of word so check before printing, you may have to rearrange things slightly.
Control of Blood Glucose AQA A level Biology
BioInspiredBioInspired

Control of Blood Glucose AQA A level Biology

(0)
Powerpoint presentation for a lesson introducing the hormonal control of blood glucose concentration. Written for AQA A-level biology but easily adapted. Specification points covered: The factors that influence blood glucose concentration. The role of the liver in glycogenesis, glycogenolysis and gluconeogenesis. The action of insulin by: • attaching to receptors on the surfaces of target cells • controlling the uptake of glucose by regulating the inclusion of channel proteins in the surface membranes of target cells • activating enzymes involved in the conversion of glucose to glycogen. The action of glucagon by: • attaching to receptors on the surfaces of target cells • activating enzymes involved in the conversion of glycogen to glucose • activating enzymes involved in the conversion of glycerol and amino acids into glucose. Does not cover the role of adrenaline or the second messenger model.
Light-dependent Reaction Photosynthesis AQA A-level Biology

Light-dependent Reaction Photosynthesis AQA A-level Biology

(0)
Powerpoint presentation on the light-dependent reaction of photosynthesis for AQA A-level Biology. Full lesson (‘learning loop’ style lesson) includes starter, objectives, summary content slides, practise question and mark scheme and evaluation. Covers specification points: The light-dependent reaction in such detail as to show that: • chlorophyll absorbs light, leading to photoionisation of chlorophyll • some of the energy from electrons released during photoionisation is conserved in the production of ATP and reduced NADP • the production of ATP involves electron transfer associated with the transfer of electrons down the electron transfer chain and passage of protons across chloroplast membranes and is catalysed by ATP synthase embedded in these membranes (chemiosomotic theory) • photolysis of water produces protons, electrons and oxygen.
