Focus 3.1

Mitosis

Mitosis is central to the process of cell reproduction. It occurs during the division of all cells in the body except reproductive cells. Drag the descriptions of the different stages of mitosis into their correct places in the diagram. For more information, read Focus 3.1 in your Science Aspects 3.1 coursebook.

Focus 3.2

Neuron Structure

Can you label the parts of the motor and sensory neurons in this diagram by dragging the terms to their correct locations? This will help you revise the topics covered in Focus 3.2 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Click here to start the interactive.



Focus 3.2

Major Human Endocrine Glands

Electrical impulses travelling along neurons are not the only way in which information is passed around your body. The endocrine system uses chemical messengers called hormones to transfer information. Label the different endocrine glands in the body by dragging the terms to their correct positions in the diagram. Not sure where everything goes? Read Focus 3.2 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Focus 3.2

Human Respiratory System

Within cells, oxygen is used and carbon dioxide is produced. These gases move into and out of cells, and constant supply and removal processes are needed. Label the diagram of the human respiratory system by dragging each label to its correct position. Need to revise first? Take a look at Focus 3.2 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Focus 3.3

Homeostasis

Read the passage about homestasis and negative feedback, and drag the missing words into the correct gaps. For revision, read Focus 3.3 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Click here to start the interactive.



Focus 3.3

Agents and Disease

The micro-organisms that cause disease are known as pathogens and include certain types of bacteria, viruses, protozoa and fungi. Identify which diseases are caused by particular agents and drag them to the correct place in the table. Take a look at the symptoms for clues. If you would like to revise the topic before you begin, please read Focus 3.4 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Click here to start the interactive.



Focus 3.4

Health and Disease

How much do you know about health and disease? Drag the labels to their correct definition in the table. This activity will help you revise the topics covered in Focus 3.4 in your Science Aspects 3 coursebook.

Click here to start the interactive.



Focus 3.5

Reproduction and Growth in Fungi
