AQA new specification-Hormones and the menstrual cycle-B11.6 PAST PAPER QUESTION

(3)
I've uploaded a couple of past paper questions for the Hormones and menstrual cycle topic (B11.6). I've also included the mark scheme, which has been edited so that it is student friendly (mark schemes are quite difficult to interpret). Thought this might be useful as a review task that students can self/peer assess. This is a complimentary resource, if you wish to purchase i have also designed a lesson for this topic simply search ' AQA new specification-Hormones and the menstrual cycle-B11.6' Good luck with your lesson!

AQA new specification-History of the atmosphere-C13.1

(1)
C13-The Earth’s atmosphere-History of our atmoshphere lesson created in accordance to the NEW AQA Specification (9-1). Designed for a mixed ability year 11 separates class, although content can be adjusted to suit any ability. Includes: slide animations, embedded videos, and homework with answers as well as a interactive review task. If for any reason the video link does not work, a URL has also been included in the notes. For further enquiries please email paperfriendlyresources@gmail.com AQA spec link: 4.9.1.2, 3 Theories about what was in the Earth’s early atmosphere and how the atmosphere was formed have changed and developed over time. Evidence for the early atmosphere is limited because of the time scale of 4.6 billion years. One theory suggests that during the first billion years of the Earth’s existence there was intense volcanic activity that released gases that formed the early atmosphere and water vapour that condensed to form the oceans. At the start of this period the Earth’s atmosphere may have been like the atmospheres of Mars and Venus today, consisting of mainly carbon dioxide with little or no oxygen gas. Volcanoes also produced nitrogen which gradually built up in the atmosphere and there may have been small proportions of methane and ammonia. When the oceans formed carbon dioxide dissolved in the water and carbonates were precipitated producing sediments, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. No knowledge of other theories is required. Students should be able to, given appropriate information, interpret evidence and evaluate different theories about the Earth’s early atmosphere. 9.1.3 Algae and plants produced the oxygen that is now in the atmosphere by photosynthesis, which can be represented by the equation: 6CO2 + 6H2O C6H12O6 + 6O2 carbon dioxide + water glucose + oxygen Algae first produced oxygen about 2.7 billion years ago and soon after this oxygen appeared in the atmosphere. Over the next billion years plants evolved and the percentage of oxygen gradually increased to a level that enabled animals to evolve.

Pearson BTEC-Applied science-UNIT 2C-How to write a scientific report

(6)
Unit 2-Practical scientific procedures and techniques Learning aim C: Undertake chromatographic techniques to identify components in mixtures. For many of my students this was the first time they needed to write a scientific report i thus produced a guide for this learning aim. This was a huge success and i had the pleasure of marking some beautifully written reports. The relevant P/M/D criteria for this learning aim have been covered within this guide. I’ve also attached the specification and assignment briefs so you can have it all in one place. Best of all enjoy it all for free :)

Pearson BTEC -Sample assessment material - Unit 1 Principles and Applications of Science I

(2)
Attached is the sample assessment material on UNIT 1 For the NEW (2016) BTEC applied science specification. I have given my students each a copy of the sample paper (w/o mark scheme) for an open book assessment, in preparation for their mocks but you can use it is as a class test. For ease of use i converted the PDF file into a word document which i have also attached. It was very fiddly to find this on the pearson website and i dislike editing pdf documents so i hope it has saved you some hassle. Please leave a review to let me know if it was useful or how you used it in your lesson.

Unit 2-Practical scientific procedures and techniques Learning aim D: Review personal development of scientific skills for laboratory work. How did i teach this? This assignment allows students to review the skills they attained in this unit. It also reiterates the importance of H&S as well as professional practice. Before setting the assignment i first taught three lessons covering the content in Pearson BTEC national-Applied science-Student book 1. Due to the complexity of this assignment i provided my students with a template which covered the P/M/D criteria (please see attached). This prevented students from going off on a tangent and also ensured they had mentioned the key skills for both assignment B and C. I’ve also attached a specification and the assignment brief to tie it altogether nicely. Hope it helps you with marking also!

Certificate of Achievement and Effort for Chemistry

Every year we have students that have gone above and beyond within our classes however, they aren’t always acknowledged in reward assemblies because of the large pool of students they are competing against. Most of the certificate templates I found online were either over complicated, childish or both. Students in secondary school wish to be treated as young adults hence, I have created a sophisticated certificate, one that students would be proud to take home. Reward the students in your chemistry classes for their achievement and effort using these certificates, download for free and edit away! If you like this certificate but don’t teach chemsitry, edit away! P.S I have attached PDF and Word doc versions, I recommend you print your certificates as PDF.

Measure the population size of a common species in a habitat. Use sampling techniques to investigate the effect of a factor on the distribution of this species. This lesson was conducted outdoors hence why a powerpoint was not created. This investigation has two parts: Investigating the population size of a plant species using random sampling Investigating the effect of a factor on plant distribution using a transect line. AQA spec link: 4.7.2.1 Relevant chapter: B16 Adaptations, interdependence and competition. AQA Biology third edition textbook-Page 262-263 In doing this practical students should cover these parts of the apparatus and techniques requirements. AT 1 – use appropriate apparatus to record length and area. AT 3 – use transect lines and quadrats to measure distribution of a species. AT 4 – safe and ethical use of organisms and response to a factor in the environment. AT 6 – application of appropriate sampling techniques to investigate the distribution and abundance of organisms in an ecosystem via direct use in the field. AT 8 – use of appropriate techniques in more complex contexts including continuous sampling in an investigation.
