Transport in Plants Xylem and Phloem Transpiration and Translocation

(1)
This is a booklet of only information for the topics of Plant Transport including Xylem Transport, Phloem Transport, Transpiration and Translocation. Information is from A Level Coursebook, IB Course Companion and images from Bioninja. It’s copy pasted from the above books, as the students did not have the textbooks. It really helped to supplement a bare bones lesson on Plant Transport. To fully understand the details the students should read the information attached.

Limiting Factors of Photosynthesis Virtual Practical and Worksheets

(0)
This is a complete activity for a virtual simulation or practical for the limiting factors of Photosynthesis. I made this because I personally don’t like setting up this experiment for the students, so I found some online resources. Each page has a different activity. the graphs of the limiting factors, you can teach this to the students or they can get the info from text or online. some background of limiting factors and about experimental designs into practicals to test their effect on rate of photosynthesis Experimental Design, can you answer questions about experimental design. Feel free to change the questions to suit your students. Exam style question, answers are attached on the last page for the teacher. Virtual Experiment number 1: http://www.reading.ac.uk/virtualexperiments/ves/preloader-photosynthesis-full.html Virtual Experiment number 2: https://www.newpathonline.com/api_player/enus_54_6206/h7sIbz/index.html answers and links again for the teacher. Obviously, only print page 1-6 for students.

Saltatory Conduction and The Refractory Period - The Action Potential Continued

(0)
A Presentation about the topic of Saltatory Conduction and** The Refractory Period** Good to use after the students know about the Action Potential, Membrane Potential and the Nerve Impulse. This would be used before a lesson on the synapse. Features many gifs that are relevant to the topic. Good for A Level and IB Biology SL and HL Obviously some images do not need to be discussed in great detail, or they can be, depending on your student’s abilities.

Cellular Respiration Information Booklet

(0)
Cellular Respiration booklet I compiled to give a logical sequence for the teaching of this topic. Contains activities, fill in the blanks to be used during direct instruction. I wanted to guide my students with what is the important information. I wanted to give only 1 resource and this is it. It is great for showing progress in a unit, or a lesson. Specific LOs and specifications are listed for our bespoke curriculum, adjust as necessary. Great for: IB, A LEVEL, AP ATP structure Phosphorylation What is NADH and hydrogen carriers? Glycolysis Krebs ETC Link Reaction Chemiosmosis Anaerobic Mitochondria Structure. On the front page I make reference to a mcgraw hill animation which I recommend highly. I use mcgraw hill animations a lot during my teaching of this topic, in class I show the following videos and we dissect them during the lectures/lessons/direct instruction. https://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter7/how_glycolysis_works.html https://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter7/how_the_nad__works.html https://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter7/how_the_krebs_cycle_works.html https://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter7/electron_transport_system_and_atp_synthesis.html https://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter7/electron_transport_system_and_formation_of_atp.html This is the video I make reference to on the front page (I have linked it as well) Best video of all the processes together: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7J4LXs-oDCU&t=2s I show this video at the beginning of the unit, in the middle and at the end and students can track their progress of understanding the once difficult topics and words

Human Evolution Virutal Simulation Comparing Skulls of Hominoids

(0)
Worksheet and Activity based on the virtual lab found here: https://www.classzone.com/books/hs/ca/sc/bio_07/virtual_labs/virtualLabs.html I created the worksheet with background information from the lab, background info from Nature. The students do a simulation to measure and collect data and observations about different hominoid skulls. It is a case study where the students are a paleontologist that has found an unknown skull sample and must determine what species it belongs to. All written work is done in the worksheet in the spaces provided. (the students work cannot be saved in the simulation) Then the students can solve an exam style problem, mark scheme attached. Suitable for Human Evolution, Evidence for Evolution, Anthropogenesis Attached is also a Natural Geographic 3 min video to introduce the different lineages and species.
