- Prepare for Big Photosynthesis Quiz - which will be take home or online - TBD
Homework for Sept. 27-29
- Preview Cellular Respiration and Fermentation with your note packets and the videos found below
- Complete the Respiration/Fermentation Preview assignment (shared google document). - follow the included instructions
Homework for Oct. 1-2
- Finish reviewing the Respiration and Fermentation Videos while working on your note packets
- Respiration Lab - Go to this link for the respiration lab and work through the prelab links so you can answer the prelab questions. We will discuss this more in class.
Homework for Oct. 3-7
Finish Respiration Lab - Post Lab write up. Use the sample data if necessary. Turn in via Google Docs (make sure to title correctly)
Complete the handout given in class for a homework grade - "Resp/ferm quiz and test overflow questions" - I will have a review session to go over this Monday at lunch.
Study for Unit 2 Exam - it will be similar in structure to the first exam. Don't forget to review metabolism, enzymes, photosynthesis, respiration and fermentation.
An Introduction to Metabolism
| Essential Questions:
- How are materials moved into and out of cells to maintain homeostasis?
- How does free energy organize life?
- How is energy stored in living systems?
- How is energy transferred within and between living systems?
- How are energy transfers facilitated in living systems?
- How do cells modify and control metabolic activities?
- How is sunlight energy captured and converted into chemical bond energy.
- How is chemical bond energy of fuel molecules release in manageable amounts and forms?
- Describe passive and active transports across the cell membrane.
- Discuss how relative concentration gradients and water potential play a role in transport across selectively permeable membranes
- Describe how energy is stored and released from chemical bonds.
- Define the laws of thermodynamics and discuss how they apply within living cells.
- Define free energy and discuss how life depends on the availability of free energy.
- Illustrated the ATP / ADP + P + energy cycle.
- Discuss energy coupling.
- Explain the function and limitations of enzymes.
- Highlight the relationship between the structure of the enzyme and its functioning.
- Discuss metabolic control. (feedback)
- Emphasize plant and other photosynthetic organisms’ role in the overall energy systems of living things on earth.
- Explain the processes of photosynthesis in detail. Relating the processes to the previous discussion on energy.
- Explain chemiosmosis in detail. How do the structures and properties of membranes play a role in this process?
- Illustrate the cyclic nature and interdependence of these processes.
- Discuss and illustrate alternative pathways for carbon fixation in plants.
- Describe fermentation and respiration in detail.
- Relate the processes of respiration to photosynthesis.
- Discuss the role of these energy releasing pathways to the interdependence of organisms.
- Highlight the role enzymes and membranes, free energy, and properties of water play in these processes.
