Hiya I'm doing aqa biology (new spec) at as level at the moment and am finding remember the cell organelles and their functions really difficult, do you know of any revision videos or methods that helped you remember? Thanks!

I just read through the revision guide over and over again. Kinda like doing your timetables.

Mitochondria-the powerhouse of the cell.

Golgi apartaus-fluid filled sacs that modify lipids and proteins

Cytoplasm-the outer shell of the cell-controls substances.

Nucleus-In charge of cell growth and devision, its the brain of the cell and controls DNA and chromosomes

I actually tested myself on these and this is all i remember, i know, its way too short.

P.s. Use flash cards or do a big poster on them with colourful pictures if you are creative

Mitochondrial motor - powerhouse of the cell
Nuclear nucleus - center of the cell/controls cell activity via mRNA trancription
Reading ribosome - reads mRNA and creates a story/protein
Rough endoplasmic reticulum - R is for ribosome. Ribosomes produce proteins here to move to the Golgi body. Another mnemonic is Rough Exit Road
Go go Golgi body (think Inspector Gadget) - modification and export of cell surface/secretory proteins
Vacant vacuole - not so vacant. Storage of nutrients
Flinging/flailing flagella - whiplike structure which is capable of moving a cell
I can't remember my mnemonic for SER. Smooth/Steroid ER?

Another Mnemonic:
Nigel Can Cook Mouthwatering Fries Like Chef Christof Candou

Nucleus
Cell Membrane
Cytoplasm
Mitochondria
Flagella
Lysosome
Centriole
Chloroplast
Cilia

DUDE

label a colourful cell and write the basic functions next to each organelle
it's easier to remember when you have a visual to go back to!

and hopefully this way each organelle that you remember will help to trigger memory of other organelles.
