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.

AQA A Level Biology Protein Synthesis Transcription and RNA

AQA A Level Biology Protein Synthesis Transcription and RNA

AQA A level Biology Specificaton Unit 3.4 Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms Topic: Protein Synthesis Transcription and RNA Power Point This lesson covers: Can you explain the concept of the genome as the complete set of genes in a cell? Can you explain the concept of the proteome as the full range of proteins that a cell is able to produce? Can you describe the structure of molecules of messenger RNA (mRNA) and of transfer RNA (tRNA)? Can you explain transcription as the production of mRNA from DNA? Can you describe the role of RNA polymerase in joining mRNA nucleotides? Can you explain how, in prokaryotes, transcription results directly in the production of mRNA from DNA? Can you explain how, in eukaryotes, transcription results production of pre-mRNA, which is then spliced to form mRNA?

AQA A Level Biology DNA Protein Synthesis Translation

AQA A Level Biology DNA Protein Synthesis Translation

AQA A level Biology Specificaton Unit 3.4 Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms Topic: Protein Synthesis Translation Power Point This lesson covers: Can you explain translation as the production of polypeptides from the sequence of codons carried by mRNA? Can you describe the roles of ribosomes, tRNA, and ATP? Can you relate the base sequence of nucleic acids to the amino acid sequence of polypeptides, when provided with suitable data about the genetic code? Can you interpret data from experimental work investigating the role of nucleic acids?

AQA A Level Biology DNA Genes and Chromosomes

AQA A Level Biology DNA Genes and Chromosomes

AQA A level Biology Specificaton Unit 3.4 Genetic information, variation and relationships between organisms Topic: DNA Genes and Chromosomes Power Point and complementary worksheet This lesson covers: 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 Revision Flash cards

AQA GCSE Physics Equations Revision Flash cards

The PowerPoint can be printed, cut and folded to produce a series of double sided flashcards to help students memorise the equations needed for the physics exam. You need to print the slides below with 2 slides per page (big version) or 6 slides per page (mini version). There are twenty two equations 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.
