Biology

Year 10

Tute’s team of experienced teachers have planned our lessons to work alongside what students are studying in school; to enable catch-up, to consolidate something that was difficult to master in class or to help revise for exams. To make is easy to choose lessons for different subjects, year groups and levels, we have organised lessons into topics that are fully aligned with the National Curriculum ensuring a comprehensive coverage of the curriculum that makes sense!

All you need to do is select the topic and then the level you feel is appropriate and you will find a list of suitable lessons that you can book for just £10 ex VAT

Biology: AQA Trilogy - Cell biology revision


Topic 13 focuses on the cell biology work in the AQA Trilogy course. The foundations of animal and plant cells are initially discussed before moving onto bacterial cells; comparing prokaryotes and eukaryotes including the use of standard form to develop an understanding of the size of these cells. We will study how cells are specialised to carry out certain functions and link this with tissues, organs and organ systems. The importance of the use of microscopes and how to calculate magnification is looked at and the topic ends with an explanation of mitosis.

Animal and plant cells

To list the main structures in an animal cell and describe their functions, to list the main structures in a plant cell and describe their functions and to compare plant and animal cells.

Bacterial cells - prokaryotes and eukaryotes

To label and describe the functions of bacterial cell structures, to compare the structures in prokaryotes to those in eukaryotes and to demonstrate an understanding of the scale and size of cells using standard form.

Specialised cells

To give examples of specialised cells and label their structures and to explain how the structure of some specialised cells relates to their function.

Tissues, organs and organ systems

To define what a tissue is and describe how cells multiply, to recall the names and functions of the major plant and animal organs and to identify some organ systems and describe their functions.

Microscopy

To describe how light microscopes allowed us to discover cells, to explain how electron microscopes have allowed us to discover subcellular structures and to carry out calculations involving magnification, real size and image size.

Mitosis

To describe the organisation of genetic material in the cell, to describe the process of mitosis and to explain what a zygote is and how one develops.

Biology: WJEC Double Award - Cells and movement across membranes revision


Topic 16 shows us that the fundamental units of living organisms are cells, which may be part of highly adapted structures including tissues, organs and organ systems, enabling living processes to be performed effectively. This topic explores the structure and function of cells, how they transport materials and some metabolic processes that occur within them.

Cells

To describe how the development of the microscope influenced the understanding of cell theory, to list the main structures in an animal cell and describe their functions and to list the main structures in a plant cell and describe their functions.

Specialised cells and organisation

To explain how the structure of some specialised cells relates to their function, to define what a tissue is and how they combine to form organs and to describe how organs combine to form organ systems.

Diffusion

To define diffusion and explain how to increase the rate of diffusion, to explain how the lungs are adapted for diffusion and to explain how the intestines are adapted for diffusion.

Osmosis and active transport

To define osmosis and compare it to diffusion, to explain how osmosis affects plant and animal cells and to explain what active transport is and where it takes place.

Enzymes

To describe enzymes structure and some of their roles, to explain the lock and key model of enzyme action and shape of active site and to describe how enzymes are involved in digestion.

Effect of temperature and pH on enzyme rate

To describe the effect of temperature on enzyme action, to describe the effect of pH on enzyme action and to explain what happens when an enzyme denatures.

Safe & Secure

Safeguarded

Tute is used in hundreds of schools and is approved by local authorities. We conform to the highest safeguarding standards, and have the necessary tools to help support young people with SEND.

Recorded

Every Tute session is recorded. This means that we monitor every lesson and ensure the very best quality of teaching. Parents can review the lesson too, as can the student for revision.

Professional

Our teachers are qualified, and are DBS checked. As trained professionals they have a natural authority, and can manage effective and engaging classes.
