The first thing I’d like you all to do is to send me an email at 13:30 to confirm that you have found the cover work and are ready to work on it.
Then use the resources we posted on our linoit.com canvas to attempt an answer to this exam question.
Write or copy your answer into an email and send it to me and I’ll respond by sending you an email back with any corrections.
Next, please read through this powerpoint which explains the cycle of muscle contraction. Contraction_of_skeletal_muscle
I then want you to write a summary of the role of ATP in muscle contraction on a sticky note and post it onto our muscle contraction canvas on linoit.com. I’ve put a green sticky on there (bottom right) for you to post your answers around.
Once you’ve done this then have a go at this exam question. Muscle cycle question 1
Again, send me an email with the answer and I’ll email you some feedback on your answers.
Here are some revision notes (basically the powerpoint converted into a word document) Muscle_Contraction_notes
Once you’ve read through this, without any notes, try and summarise the events that happen during one muscle contraction cycle in 4 stages. Do this on 4 different sticky notes and post them to linoit.com. Try to do it without referring to any notes. Also, please put your name on your notes.
Following this please look at this objective:
- Hypothermia: A condition in which body temperature falls below 35°C.
Normal thermoregulatory mechanisms fail.
The processes involved in thermoregulation in a mammal. The role of thermoreceptors in the skin and the hypothalamus.
The role of positive feedback as temperature continues to fall.
These revision notes Unit_5_Notes (1)are about Unit 5 Biology which as you will see shares most of its’ content with our Human Biology unit 4. Read the notes on temperature regulation and then answer the questions on this new hypothermia canvas:
That concludes our cover work for today. Please endeavour to complete it all in the two hours because I should be able to help you with any questions. Do it at school or at home, I don’t mind where as long as you do it.
