    hi, i need help coming up with ideas for my A2 biology coursework. i am the only person in my class who hasnt even started, everyone else is nearly on their second draft. my original one was on enzymes but the results got mucked up and then the second one was about leaf decay, designed for autumn but thanks to my exams i never could get started so i am really desperate for any ideas.
    i was thinking about doing one on daphnia cos theres lots to write about ethics-wise but another girl already did effects of caffiene and alcohol on daphnia.
    i know more anout plants, enzymes, dapnia so if anyone could expand on that but if not
    any ideas welcome
    thanks a lot

    Can it be anything? I did my A2 coursework on memory, it was really interesting and lots to write about!! You can research into dementia etc.. I had to make a questionaire for 20+ people of different ages.

    Then the test involved - remembering 10 + different objects on a tray for 1-2 minutes then they had 1-2 minutes to write them all down!
    Had some fun doing it! Especially with my 82 year old Grandad - he did quite good and got the same score as a few people my age!

    they say anything but we have limited resources etc
    the dementia/memory sounds cool but i thought using humans would be difficult cos theres so many varibles and hard to control as no 2 humans are the same.

    what kind of results did you get. would it be possible for me to have a look at ur work if you still have and it you don't mind
