MRSA Gene Hunt

This is a classroom-based activity from the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute that allows students to explore the features of two bacterial pathogen genomes. The aim of the activity is to highlight the role of different genetic components in two strains of Staphylococcus aureus and to identify how these have led to...

Zoom in on Your Genome

From the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, this resource contains an animation that takes a journey which zooms in from the surface of the body into a cell. It illustrates the relationship between the nucleus, chromosomes, genes and DNA.

Each stage is at higher magnification to show where the genome is found...

From DNA to Protein

Produced by the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, this animation gives an overview of the process of protein synthesis and how DNA codes for proteins. It covers the major stages of the process starting with where DNA is found in the cell and how its information is transcribed into mRNA. It then follows through the...

Air Tracking of a Ground Object

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can a camera, mounted on a helicopter, be used to track the location of a ground-based object?

A number of discussion ideas are considered before using 2D and 3D...

Power Demand

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematic in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can you predict future power requirements?

Students are required to complete a table by substituting values into a formula and plot a graph. The interactive file can...

Resistor Production

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how can production outcome data from a manufacturing process be analysed to optimise the process?

Students consider the outputs of resistors to see the outcomes form a...

Simple Gears and Transmission

This engineering resource, produced by Mathematics in Education and Industry (MEI) for the Royal Academy of Engineering, asks the question: how are transmissions designed so that they provide the force, speed and direction required, and how efficient is the design?

Students consider the physical...

The Physics of Tennis

These four lessons focus on the role of physics in the game of tennis. The resource is most appropriate for students aged 14 to16 and post-16 physics students and include lessons on: D-T / V-T graphs, Energy transfer, Vibrations, and Balancing forces.

  • In D-T and V-T graphs, students learn how to...

Quadratic Equations

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore what is meant by a quadratic equation, the meaning of the coefficients of a quadratic equation and to be able to solve quadratic equations. An introduction page gives examples of where quadratic equations...

The Exponential Function

This interactive resource, produced by the University of Leicester, is designed to enable students to explore the nature of the exponential function and to explore the derivative of the exponential function.

An introduction page sets out some basic information about exponential functions leading to a...
