Lesson How to Draw a Graph and Display

Lesson How to Draw a Graph and Display

The aim of this activity to give students the knowledge and practice to construct their own graphs. Included in this pack are 1. A step by step guide for students so they can construct their own line graph and or bar graph independently. 2. A graph drawing exercise that is differentiated with extension work. 3. students checklist that can be used for self, peer and or teacher assessment of the graphs produced by the students.

Lesson Planning an investigation

Lesson Planning an investigation

This is a PowerPoint and worksheet to help students develop their skills at writing up an experiment/investigation. The PowerPoint I would suggest that this is split up into different sections for use over several lessons with relevant practical work. I have given my suggestions on how it can be separate by highlighting headings of slides in bold for each new lesson. Any slides that students have to respond to have an “activity” sign in the top right corner of the slide. The Worksheet I have written this to match up with the format of the PowerPoint. I would expect students to complete this over several lessons or independently. It can be used as a writing frame to help students develop there planning and processing of the written aspects of any experiment/investigation. I have separated the pages into sections, planning, carrying out the investigation, and review of investigation. You can give more able students all pages at once (or none) and stagger release of the pages for those students who need more support. If your students are struggling with drawing graphs, please check out the how to draw a graph pack in my shop. As always any feedback is welcome.

A Level Lesson on DNA Genes and Chromosomes

A Level Lesson on DNA Genes and Chromosomes

Presentation and companion worksheet for teaching the A-level material on DNA Genes and Chromosomes. The presentation has several questions and activities built into it** including answers**. I just provide digital copies of the presentation to students when teaching, rather than print the worksheet. Could be used with top set GCSE students. The lesson can be used to teach the following content: Can you explain that, in prokaryotic cells, DNA molecules are short, circular, and not associated with proteins? Can you explain that, in the nucleus of eukaryotic cells, DNA molecules are very long, linear and associated with proteins, called histones? Can you describe how a DNA molecule and its associated proteins form a chromosome? Can you explain that the mitochondria and chloroplasts of eukaryotic cells also contain DNA which, like the DNA of prokaryotes, is short, circular and not associated with protein? Can you explain how a gene is a base sequence of DNA that codes for the amino acid sequence of a polypeptide and a functional RNA (including ribosomal RNA and tRNAs)? Can you describe how a gene occupies a fixed position, called a locus, on a particular DNA molecule? Can you explain how a sequence of three DNA bases, called a triplet, codes for a specific amino acid? Can you explain that the genetic code is universal, non-overlapping, and degenerate? Can you explain that in eukaryotes, much of the nuclear DNA does not code for polypeptides? Can you explain that, even within a gene only some sequences, called exons, code for amino acid sequences? Can you explain that, within the gene, these exons are separated by one or more non-coding sequences, called introns?

AQA GCSE Physics Equations Flash Cards

AQA GCSE Physics Equations Flash Cards

The PowerPoint can be printed to provide a series of flash cards that will aid students in memorising the equations needed to pass the GCSE Physics exam. Student need to print the slides with 2 slides per page (big version) or 6 slides per page (mini version). There are twenty two equation as power, energy transferred and time appear twice on the AQA spec equation sheet. Cut each box out and fold along the dashed line to create back to back flash cards. On each card you are given the name of the variables that you should be able to identify in the exam question. On one slide you have the matching units that you need to memorise to check if you need to convert any values in the exam question. On the second slide you have the equation triangle, that you need to memorise, so you can rearrange the equation and answer the question.

Poster Which graph do I draw?

Poster Which graph do I draw?

Display that allows students to work out if they should be drawing a line or bar graph. Included in the display is; 1. definitions of main variables i.e. independent variable, dependent variable and control variable. 2. definitions of the data types i.e. categoric, continuous, discrete and ordered. 3. a checklist for drawing a graph. 4. a key word list to help students understand the display. You may want to include an A3 copy of “How to draw a graph” as part of this display. This is sold separately in my shop. There are two versions; one is just the “How to draw a graph” instruction sheet and the second is the “How to draw a graph” instruction sheet and a classroom activity.
