This resource is 2 A4 pages of revision activities for the 6.1.1 OCR Cellular control topic Top features include: QR code for useful videos QR code to questions on Seneca checks key terminology Links to other parts of the spec where appropriate The activity is designed to check that students have an understanding of the topic and encourages independent working. I advise my students to use notes or a textbook before asking the teacher if they do not know the answer. Each side takes students roughly an hour to complete. I have used as homeworks, support sessions, revision lessons and private study tasks All other topics available and feedback is welcomed. Other features include Maths and PAG elements as well as MCQ links for the OCR questions. these are not applicable to this topic.
