New AQA AS Biology Planning Experiment, processing data, presenting data, conclusions and evaluation

(0)
This 18 slide ppt is covering the New AQA AS Biology requirements for planning an experiment, processing the data, presenting data, drawing conclusions and evaluating data.

Can be used over many lessons, or each time an experiment is completed to reinforce standards required. Each slide(s) covers a specific area required for the scientific experiments: 1. Planning - keywords, apparatus, equipment and techniques 2.How to produce the perfect table 3. Risk assessments 4.Percentages, percentage changes, averages, ratios and SD 5. Perfect graphs, finding rates an 6. Correlation and causation 7. Errors in measurements, minimising errors 8. Evaluation Thank you for taking the time to look at my resource and I hope you find it beneficial.

Covers the AQA Chemistry (Trilogy) specification for Quantitative chemistry. Concentrates on calculations. It includes practice slides throughout the presentation so that the students can practice each calculation as you go through each type. Covers: Ar / Mr / RFM / % mass of an element or compound / Number of moles / Conservation of mass and why the mass actually changes during some reactions / thermal decomposition / how to use moles to calculate mass / how to calculate Empirical formula / limiting reactions and how to calculate concentrations of solutions. After completing the presentation and trial questions there is a revision sheet. For higher groups I actually removed the examples and got them to make the revision card. For those struggling I gave the revision sheet as it is.
