AQA GCSE Biology-Hormones in human reproduction

(0)
Designed for the new specification AQA GCSE( covers spec point 4.5.3.4 ) course but can be modified for other exam boards. 23 slides covering Hormones in human reproduction: By the end of the powerpoint students would have covered: 4.5.3.4 Hormones in human reproduction Students should be able to describe the roles of hormones in human reproduction, including the menstrual cycle. During puberty reproductive hormones cause secondary sex characteristics to develop. Oestrogen is the main female reproductive hormone produced in the ovary. At puberty eggs begin to mature and one is released approximately every 28 days. This is called ovulation. Testosterone is the main male reproductive hormone produced by the testes and it stimulates sperm production. Several hormones are involved in the menstrual cycle of a woman. Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) causes maturation of an egg in the ovary. Luteinising hormone (LH) stimulates the release of the egg. Oestrogen and progesterone are involved in maintaining the uterus lining. (HT only) Students should be able to explain the interactions of FSH, oestrogen, LH and progesterone, in the control of the menstrual cycle. (HT only) Students should be able to extract and interpret data from graphs showing hormone levels during the menstrual cycle. Contains examination questions Alternative starter question for triple or combined science students.

AQA GCSE Biology- The human nervous system

AQA GCSE Biology- The human nervous system

(0)
Designed for the new specification AQA GCSE course but can be modified for other exam boards. 21 slides covering The nervous system By the end of the powerpoint students would have covered: 4.5.2.1 Structure and function Students should be able to explain how the structure of the nervous system is adapted to its functions. The nervous system enables humans to react to their surroundings and to coordinate their behaviour. Information from receptors passes along cells (neurones) as electrical impulses to the central nervous system (CNS). The CNS is the brain and spinal cord. The CNS coordinates the response of effectors which may be muscles contracting or glands secreting hormones. stimulus --> receptor --> coordinator -->effector -->response Students should be able to explain how the various structures in a reflex arc – including the sensory neurone, synapse, relay neurone and motor neurone – relate to their function. Students should understand why reflex actions are important. Reflex actions are automatic and rapid; they do not involve the conscious part of the brain. Required practical activity 7: plan and carry out an investigation into the effect of a factor on human reaction time.
