From the light reaction to the Calvin cycle, this presentation contains information about the various stages of photosynthesis. This is a great supplement to some of the biochemistry-heavy presentations about the specific mechanisms. Your class will like the review of putting the stages together and their relevance and connection to respiration.
This is the 4th video about photosynthesis. It concentrates on the Calvin cycle which is part of the light-independent reaction stage. The chemical chains for the Calvin Cycle are drawn out on Sal's Smart Board. The process is thoroughly covered to show how the cycle functions.
AP biologists or college-level botanists consider in-depth details of the photosynthetic process. They examine the structures in a leaf and the roles that they play. They label neat and colorful diagrams of photosystems and electron flow. They explain what happens to different ions and molecules as they participate in the process. This worksheet is top-notch!
Comparisons between c3 and c4 photosynthesis begin this video. Next, the mechanism of CO2 being incorporated into a 4-carbon compound is explained. This is an involved topic which can be very complicated. It should be an excellent tool for enhancing student comprehension.
Kim B. Foglia has designed a comprehensive series of AP biology worksheets. This one focuses learners on the progression of photosynthesis in plants. In this assignment, they identify structures and steps on high-quality diagrams, use words to explain details of the process, and draw pictures of leaf adaptation s. Topics addressed include light dependent and independent reactions, leaf and chloroplast structure, photosystems, the Calvin cycle, and more!
In this photosynthesis worksheet, students learn how plants trap the sun's energy and the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis which includes the Calvin cycle. This worksheet has 5 true or false, 6 fill in the blank, 2 short answer, and 10 multiple choice questions.
Two large diagrams make up this simple, yet valuable, biology resource. One is a close-up of a plant cell in which learners label the steps involved in photosynthesis and the Calvin cycle. The other is a cell where learners label the steps involved in cellular respiration. Another use for this resource would be to display them on your whiteboard as you lecture on these cell processes. The black-line diagrams are neat, understandable, and accurate.
Young scholars are able to draw a diagram of the light reactions and briefly describe what is occurring throughout the process. They are able to explain where each reactant/product in the photosynthesis equation comes from/goes during the process and write down their observations about particular plants and discuss the implication some of these observations have on photosynthesis.
