Practical Science for 11-16s: Aerobic respiration
Wednesday 8th February 2023
Location: Wesley Hall, Crookes, Sheffield.
Links to Edexcel specification 2.39 practical: "investigate the evolution of carbon dioxide and heat from respiring seeds or other suitable living organisms".
Students will be supported to carry out an investigation to compare the rate of aerobic respiration and evolution of carbon dioxide from a range of subjects. They will also have the opportunity to explore demonstrations of a range of methods that can be used to measure respiration and heat release in living organisms. Students will be supported to develop the experimental skills that are assessed in IGCSE examinations and to consider the limitations of a range of methodologies. They will have opportunities to further their knowledge and understanding of aerobic respiration as a chemical reaction in cells and the respiration equation, and to develop exam technique and understanding of key words and terminology.
Please note that this practical may involve the use of live maggots, which will be ethically and sensitively handled.
All tasks are carefully differentiated to allow students at any stage of their IGCSE journey to access learning at a level that is suitable to them individually.
