This resource was made for the new AQA scheme of work for Triple science biology Included are 16 lessons with full objectives and spec references (based on 1 hour lessons.) I have changed the order of teaching from the specification to help it flow a little better as well as including recap elements from earlier units. There is a student booklet included with space for notes, diagrams, exam questions and lined paper in the back for flexibility (64 pages) Communities Adaptations Organisation of an ecosystem 4-5. RPA 9 Quadrtats and transects How materials are cycled Decomposition 8-9. RPA 10 decay of milk Biodiversity Global warming Maintaining biodiversity Food production Biotechnoogy Summary All other biology lessons available. Please also see revision resources for ALL AQA units if you are interested. Feedback always really appreciated

2.1.4 Enzymes OCR A level Biology (approx 16 lessons)

(2)
Made for the OCR A level Biology course including some hand drawn diagrams, custom animations using morph transitions. There are specification links scattered throughout. PAG instructions taken from the OCR website for the practical lessons PAG group 4 - please note you do not have to complete all of these. I like to do two of them during this topic My resources are kept within one long power point, split into sections for lessons. This is to allow for flexibility in teaching but also means you can flip back and forth to link parts of the topic together with ease during the lessons - 2.1.4 is 175 slides! Includes a 48 page handout that can be printed as a booklet with diagrams, questions, glossary and a few spare pages to allow for flexibility 1a The role of enzymes 1b Mechanisms of enzyme action 2. Factors affecting enzyme activity pH, Temperature and Q10 3. Factors affecting enzyme activity enzyme and substrate concentration 4a,b+c Enzyme investigation PAG 4.1 key skills serial dilution and standard deviation 5a+b Enzyme investigation PAG 4.2 key skills serial dilution 6a,b+c Enzyme investigation PAG 4.3 key skills planning 7 PAG style questions 8. Coenzymes, cofactors and prosthetic groups 9. The effects of inhibitors 10. the effect of drugs and poisons 11. Revision - exam questions and podcast activity I huge amount of work has gone into my resources with some hand drawn and custom animations. Your feedback is really valued.

OCR A level Biology Module 4 Revision Grid

Module 4 Revision grids. 9 x A4 pages in total 4.1.1 x4 4.2.1 x2 4.2.2 x3 Top features include: QR code - takes students to multiple choice quiz from the OCR QR code for useful videos QR code to questions on Seneca maths elements PAG elements checks key terminology *Checks ability to draw key diagrams 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 private study tasks and printed on card and cut to use as revision cards All other topics available. Please note, answers not yet available but are in the pipeline!!
