In this lesson you will be introduced to the two types of cells and will practice identifying these cells.
Unit: Cell biology (FT)
This lesson will cover the skills of comparing structures of cells and will take you through some exam style questions on cell structures, function of subcellular structures and comparing cells.
This lesson is focused on learning about micrometres as a new unit for measurement and how to complete unit conversions. It will also teach you how to express your answers in standard form.
Microscopes are very important pieces of equipment in the study of biology. You will learn the structure of the light microscope and how microscopes differ from each other.
This lesson covers the required practical on viewing a plant cell under the microscope. You will learn the method of the practical and also learn about the magnification equation.
In this lesson you will learn the method of how to view an animal cell under the microscope. The lesson will also take you through some exam questions on finding magnification using a scale and an image of a cell.
In this lesson you will learn about different types of specialised cells and how they formed from stem cells. We will also study examples of different specialised cells.
In this lesson, we will learn about concentration, diffusion and the factors affecting diffusion. We will also look at an investigation of how surface area affects the rate of diffusion.
In this lesson, you will learn about the concept of surface area to volume ratio and the examples of exchange of materials at different surfaces.
In this lesson, we will learn about osmosis and learn how to answer exam questions on osmosis. We will go through the steps to tackle questions on osmosis.
In this lesson, we will learn about the steps of the required practical on osmosis and we will write a method to investigate the effect of osmosis.
In this lesson, we will learn how to analyse data from the required practical by using secondary data. Then we will learn how to read a graph showing the results.
We will learn about active transport and learn about why it is necessary for organisms. We will also compare and contrast osmosis, diffusion and active transport.
This lesson will take you through the structure of a simple eukaryotic cell and how one cell can divide into two identical daughter cells by mitosis.
This lesson will cover the two types of stem cells and how the stem cells can be used in the medical field. It will also cover the advantages and disadvantages of the use of these two types of cells.
This lesson covers all the essential maths skills required in cell biology. There are also practice questions for you to download and practice.
This lesson is an overview on the fundamental knowledge of cells, specialised cells, cell cycle and how to view cells under the microscope.
This lesson is an overview on the three methods of transport of materials into and out of cell. It will also cover the osmosis practical and the essential skills required in the practical.
We will learn about Professor S. Dancer and her contribution in infection control. We will look at one of her research and apply essential exam skills as we go through her research.
