A 13m 50s video lesson covering all of 9.3 from Dan Rott:
Secondary growth in plants – a tutorial from W h Freeman.
A quiz on Plant Classification (good luck!).
Paul Andersen explains the major Plant Structures (in more detail than we need).
A 13m 18s video lesson covering all of 9.4 from Dan Rott:
An 18m video clip on plant reproduction from ‘The amazing lives of plants’ (MacGraw-Hill) – we do not need to know about double fertilisation though:
An animated, narrated tutorial on the life cycle of an angiosperm (which also includes a quiz from Sinauer Associates) and Double Fertilisation in Angiosperms (University of Kent & UCA). Both go into much more detail than you need (we don’t need to know about double fertilisation) but they are good.
The beautiful tricks of flowers – a 14m TED-Ed talk from Jonathan Drori and here’s ‘The Beauty of Pollination’ from Louie Schwartzberg (TED):
In Crash Course Biology #38 – The Plants & The Bees: Plant Reproduction, Hank gets into the dirty details about vascular plant reproduction.
Mung bean time-lapse of germination:
Also here are radish seeds germinating & sprouting roots & shoots (46s).
A fantastic animated tutorial from McGraw Hill Education on Phytochrome signalling.
A good, general overview of Photosynthesis (4m 52s):
In Crash Course Biology #8 – Photosynthesis, Hank explains, well, photosynthesis.
The simple story of photosynthesis and food from TED-Ed. Find a video lesson on this sub-topic at Dan Rott videos, or many assessment statements are covered by Stephanie Castle (with more being added all the time).
COMPULSORY PRACTICAL 4 – separation of photosynthetic pigments by chromatography
A nice short introduction to Plants, Growth & Transport (from Twig World):
Transport in plants in three and a half minutes:
Or how about a whole lesson from Mr Paul Andersen? He goes into more detail than we need (we have to know about Dicots but not Monocots), but he’s good:
The most amazing thing about trees (5m video).
More-detailed than we need but it’s good:
Mr Paul Andersen starts by defining transpiration as evaporation of water from a leaf. He then describes how a potometer can be used to measure the rate of transpiration in different environments:
How to use set-up a potometer: Transpiration: the power of the potometer, a 17m video from STEM Learning.
Here’s a 2m video on Phloem Loading (in a little more detail than we need).
Specialized Leaves, a short 1m 39s video.
For self-assessment questions, with exercises and discussions, just click on the correct topic at Biology GCSE & IGCSE Question Bank.
Skoool gives you a lesson, including progress questions, for each Biology topic but you’ll need sound on for it. GCSE Bitesize has revision pages (that take you through the topic), a test and an activity.
IGCSE Biology: Coursebook, chapter 8, pp.100 – 107 & 109 – 110
Science Bank 15: Part 3 covers Plant Tropisms (from 9m 25s to 14m 30s):
A 3 minute introduction to tropisms (from Twig World).
Plant Control – Paul Andersen explains how plants use hormones to respond to their environment. We only need to know about auxins (to 3m 40s).
