A series of slides designed for the new BTEC Nationals 2016 Applied Science NQF Framework. The slides follow the new BTEC textbook and are designed around student research and discussions. A good starting point for teaching. UPDATED 10/10/18
Slides created for the new BTEC Applied Science Level 3 qualification. Used last year and worked well. Used ideas from the textbook and online. Ensure that you take your students outside to do to the sampling. Would appreciate some feedback as it is a new spec! I have also used other resources however they were not my own.
Resources created for the new BTEC specification starting 2016. I have used the new textbook to help create some of these items. The resources are for D - Enzymes, E - Diffusion.
Slides and mix and match handout for the new BTEC Unit 4 (Pearson Level 3 NQF Applied Science 2016). I used this last year and have updated for use this year. Information has been gained from textbook and online. Difficult to teach so I suggest you also try and get a guest speaker from a local laboratory sector.
A set of resources to use for Unit 2 D Assignment. I have used them this year and they worked well, but you can expand on these plans very easily. Get your groups to discuss and share ideas!
A series of slides for BTEC Level 3 Applied Science students studying on the new Framework. Takes students through different fuels, hazards associated with fuels and specific heat capacity. Also comes with glossary sheets and a worksheet, both of which match up with the slides. Tried and tested!
A selection of workbooks designed for Level 3 - allows students to work through questions at own pace but also checks learning and progression. Can be used as an activity in class or as homework. Currently using for Access to HE Human Physiology
Three workbooks designed for Level 3 Access to HE students - 1) Female reproductive system, 2) Male reproductive system, 3) Genetic inheritance. Can easily be used for revision in class or out, and adapted to suit your needs.
Full set of slides ready to teach AS Biology, Module 2. You can use them to help you prepare, especially if never taught AS Biology OCR before. You can create worksheets and booklets to accompany these slides. The slides follow the OCR specification and textbook. I have used them this year and the students have found them useful!
Designed for Level 3 Access to HE students but easily adaptable. covers male and female reproductive systems, contraception, and genetic inheritance. Put students into mixed ability groups and get them to peer mark each other. 30 seconds per question. Prize available for winning team
Includes: Lesson slides for B1, B2 and B3 parts of the unit 1 material Quiz slides for animal and plant cells Tables for students to complete on prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells microscopy starter booklet Table for students to complete on specialised cells I have created these as I am teaching the start of this unit this year, and that is why there is no workbooks/activities for tissues - but, there are slides you can use as a starting point.
A good starting resource to introduce your students into the concept of genetic counselling. Can start discussions at any point throughout the slides in small groups or as a whole class. Videos incorporated onto slides did not work converting from Google Slides to PPT so have included references underneath
Power-points to introduce the male and female reproductive systems. Covers anatomy, gametogenesis and hormonal control. Also uploaded 2 diagrams for Notebook if you want to get students up to the Smartboard (hopefully they work!)
A good starting power-point revolving around contraception and different types. Best accompanied with actual contraceptive devices so students can see them as being taught. Can develop and adapt to suit your needs
Suitable for any level 3 Enzyme revision topic - you can expand on points and create own resources to go with it. It is meant to be a revision powerpoint so students will have covered the topic before. I am currently using this for the new BTEC Level 3 Applied Science Unit 3 Specification but also with Access to HE students.
Cellular respiration slides which follow the AQA A Level textbook, also good for Access to HE and BTEC courses as has the basic outline for steps involved. Can easily be adapted and reworked to suit your needs.
Quiz designed for Level 3 Access to HE students, who completed a unit on macromolecules. Questions cover topics such as enzymes, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, inheritance, respiration, proteins... Easily adaptable. Get sudents to peer mark each other and there is a prize available for the winning team. I allowed 30 seconds per question.
I have made this checklist by typing up each criteria that is within the OCR specification guide. Students can track their notes, revision and feelings towards each one and then plan accordingly for their exams.
5 glossary sheets to help students keep track of key words Digestive system Endocrine system Nervous system Excretory system Cardiovascular and respiratory systems
Pre-Access is a Level 2 course designed for students to then progress onto the Level 3 Access to HE course. This particular unit however is designed to be Level 1 / Level 2. Good for a starting point with a new group.
