Autosomal linkage worksheet A2 Biology AQA

(0)
Detailed worksheet covering (virtually all) possible autosomal linkage exam questions. Could be used as homework or as an assessment (due to the low number of past exam questions on this particular topic). Includes a chi-squared question and links to/revision of meiosis Made with AQA in mind, but the specifications for OCR and Edexcel are pretty similar for this topic, so would be beneficial to those specifications as well. Mark scheme included.

A-level Biology A2 Inheritance Summary Worksheets
StudyALevelBiologyStudyALevelBiology

A-level Biology A2 Inheritance Summary Worksheets

(0)
Visually appealing worksheets covering the inheritance topic of A-level Biology. Designed with the AQA exam board in mind (incomplete dominance is not relevant to AQA, but has been included to allow teachers of other exam boards to use this resource - codominance and incomplete dominance are not the same thing!). Includes 7 worksheets covering: Multiple alleles Codominant alleles Incomplete dominance Dihybrid crosses Sex linkage Autosomal linkage Dominant and recessive epistasis Due the complexity of this topic, I find these worksheets are useful to introduce each type of inheritance, before moving onto exam-style questions. Also useful as a revision / homework exercise. All worksheets are black and white to allow students to add colour to the diagrams, a process which is thought to aid the formation of visual memories.

StudyALevelBiologyStudyALevelBiology

Meiosis A-level AS Biology exam style questions worksheet

(0)
40 marks of exam-style questions covering the A-level Biology topic of meiosis. Written for the AQA specification, but the majority of the questions are relevant to all exam boards. Non-disjunction has intentionally been set as the last question, allowing it to be easily removed for those exam boards which don’t include this sub-topic. Questions have been designed with the intention of covering as many permutations as possible with regards to meiosis exam questions, but without repetition. Useful as a homework / self-assessment / revision task before an end-of-topic test. Includes full mark scheme.
Meiosis Summary Worksheet AS A-level Biology
StudyALevelBiologyStudyALevelBiology

Meiosis Summary Worksheet AS A-level Biology

(0)
Meiosis summary worksheets for AS / A-level Biology (process has been simplified to include only two pairs of homologous chromosomes). Students can cut out each worksheet around the dotted edge and glue/tape the sheets together to produce a large summary sheet covering the entire process of meiosis. PDF includes two versions: 3 page version which includes details on individual stages of Meiosis I and II. 2 page version (more suitable for AQA) that provides an overview of Meiosis I and II and does not go into details regarding the individual stages. I have included diagrams representing the chromosomal content of cells during interphase (both prior to, and after DNA replication). I have drawn the chromosomes in interphase in the same way as the chromosomes during the meiosis (even though in interphase, the chromosomes have not yet condensed), this is just so students can clearly see what is happening to the number of chromosomes. Both versions are designed for students to colour the chromosomes to represent maternal and paternal chromosomes (and also the results of crossing-over). Versions with completed text are included, if you are short of time and would like to provide the sheets as handouts instead. However, please note, students would still need to colour the chromosomes to represent the maternal/paternal chromosomes and the outcome of crossing-over. An example of completed colouring is included on the last page of the PDF. Also available as part of a meiosis bundle which included meiosis exam-style question worksheet & active recall meiosis flashcard activity.

A-level Biology Concise Revision Key Term Notes

A-level Biology Concise Revision Key Term Notes

(0)
Key terms & processes for AQA A-level Biology condensed onto 8 x A4 sheets. The text is fairly small (so students may prefer to view each sheet on their device/computer to allow zooming in - but the text is still readable if printed out on A4). Topics covered include: Biological molecules Cell structure / microscopy / immune response / cell membrane transport / mitosis. Gas exchange / digestion / mass transport in animals (tissue fluid formation, haemoglobin, structure & function of blood vessels) & plants (cohesion-tension hypothesis & mass flow hypothesis). Meiosis / protein synthesis / genetic code / differences between prokaryotic & eukaryotic DNA / effect of mutations / natural selection / classification basics / biodiversity key terms. Light dependent & independent reactions / aerobic & anaerobic respiration / energy transfers / nutrient cycles (nitrogen & phosphorus cycle plus eutrophication). Control of heart rate / stages of action potential / synaptic transmission / control of blood glucose / ultrafiltration+selective reabsorption+role of loop of Henle in water reabsorption+ role of ADH in osmoregulation / muscles - sliding filament theory + difference between slow twitch & fast twitch + phosphocreatine system. Natural selection / allopatric & sympatric speciation / key inheritance expected ratios / succession / key population definitions & concepts / sampling techniques including mark-release recapture Gene expression (including key concepts from mutations, stem cells, cancer, epigenetics , RNAi) / gene technology (including key stages of in-vivo and in-vitro cloning & genetic fingerprinting/DNA probes. Obviously it is impossible to cover the entire specification on 8 sheets of A4, so this is not a substitute for revising the entire content. It is intended as an aid to revising the key terms for the topics which tend to crop up as ‘pure content’ questions. My students have found this resource particularly helpful for the 3 x 5-mark questions at the end of Paper 1 and also for the synoptic essay question.
A-level Biology Populations and Evolution Task Card Activity
StudyALevelBiologyStudyALevelBiology

A-level Biology Populations and Evolution Task Card Activity

(0)
Activity designed for sections 3.7.2 and 3.7.3 of the AQA specification (however would also work well for other exam boards). 16 tasks divided into 4 themed stations (2 on population genetics, 1 on the different types of natural selection and 1 on speciation). Designed as a group revision activity. PDF includes task card sheets to be printed, cut out (and laminated). Also includes student answer sheets (which correspond to the task card layout), along with full teacher answers. PDF is black and white only - I printed each station on a different coloured card/paper before laminating.
