This powerpoint presentation covers Option F.1 in the IB Biology curriculum. Each slide is labelled with the specific learning objective and animation/video links are provided in the slide notes.
The slides are formatted to print well for handouts or revision and I can provide a pdf version upon request.
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
**IB Biology Learning Objectives:
F.1.1 – Outline the classification of living organisms into three domains
F.1.2 – Explain the reason for reclassification of living organisms into three domains.
F.1.3 – Distinguish between the characteristics of the three domains.
F.1.4 – Outline the wide diversity of habitat in Archaea as exemplified by methanogens, thermophiles and halophiles.
F.1.5 – Outline the diversity of Eubacteria, including shape and cell wall structure.
F.1.6 – State, with one example, that some bacteria and aggregates that show characteristics are not seen in individual bacteria.
F.1.7 – Compare the structure of the cell walls of Gram-positive and Gram negative Eubacteria
F.1.8 – Outline the diversity of structures in viruses including: naked capsid vs enveloped capsid; DNA vs RNA; and ssDNA/RNA vs dsDNA/RNA
F.1.9 – Outline the diversity of microscopic eukaryotes, as illustrated by Saccharomyces, Amoeba, Plasmodium, Paramecium, Euglena and Chlorella.
