    what statistical tests are we supposed to know other than t-test?
    U test, Spearman's rank correlation test, chi squared test and wilcoxon matched pair test

    Do we have to know how to calculate them or the value will be given and we just have to compare with the critical value?

    In the planning question, no you just have to say the comparison of the value to critical value and when to reject the null hypothesis.
    There is a calculation question using these test, in that you have to if they ask, I guess. Our teacher didn't go in to much depth with those calculation so I am assuming its not that important for Edexcel :/

    The actual process of obtaining t-value involves finding standard error, standard deviation and some other easy stuff. Edexcel would have to give us the formula for t-test if they expect us to find the t-value. If they don't, then I will die. I'm not wasting valuable time learning those formulae.

    I'm basically dreading the planning question.

    But that is not very good, I mean it just gives the method, I would like something in point form.
    And do you have anything for phy6?

    Well, doing W2 makes you better at the planning question. That's my weakest point.

    You need to know 17 in total-9 of As and 8 of A2!:eek: :yes:

    Describe how the effect of caffeine on heart rate
    in Daphnia can be investigated practically, and
    discuss whether there are ethical issues in the use of
    invertebrates.


    Describe how to investigate the vitamin C content of
    food and drink.

    Describe how membrane structure can be investigated
    practically, eg by the effect of alcohol concentration or
    temperature on membrane permeability.

    Describe how enzyme concentrations can affect the
    rates of reactions and how this can be investigated
    practically by measuring the initial rate of reaction.

    Describe the stages of mitosis and how to prepare
    and stain a root tip squash in order to observe them
    practically.

    ________________________________ ____________________________
    Describe how to carry out a study on the ecology of a
    habitat to produce valid and reliable data (including
    the use of quadrats and transects to assess abundance
    and distribution of organisms and the measurement
    of abiotic factors, eg solar energy input, climate,
    topography, oxygen availability and edaphic factors).

    Describe how to investigate the effects of temperature
    on the development of organisms (eg seedling growth
    rate, brine shrimp hatch rates).

    Describe how DNA can be amplified using the
    polymerase chain reaction (PCR).

    Describe how gel electrophoresis can be used to
    separate DNA fragments of different length.
