Students administer and experiment to identify the difference(s) between miscible and immiscible liquids and observe and descriptively record what type of mixture results. They describe and explain what chages take place over a period of time. Finally, students draw the structural formulas for glucose, sucrose, cellulose, a fatty acid (oleic acid) and a long straight chain hydrocarbon like decane.
Students discuss food and the food groups and their organic nature. They test 3 different solutions and test for protein, starch and glucose. In addition, they create a master table on the board to collect all the teams results.
Students test fluids for amino acids, glucose and salicyclic acid. For this chemistry indicators lesson plan, students use chromatography paper, Benedicts solution and iron chloride to test solutions for amino acids, glucose, and salicyclic acid respectively.
In this enzymes worksheet, students conduct an experiment to show how enzymes can be used to convert glucose to fructose. This worksheet has 1 short answer question.
Students graph glucose test results to compare between people with and without diabetes. In this investigative lesson plan students participate in activities that allow them to better understand diabetes and how to graph results.
Meet adorable animated chloroplasts as they, with the help of the sun, produce glucose. In this four-minute feature, viewers learn how carbon, oxygen, hydrogen, and electrons are combined to form carbohydrates. The narrator also explains how glucose is broken down in our bodies into ATP, which we use as energy. After the video, your class can discuss the accompanying Think questions as a review.
Does the human body evolve as quickly as human culture? With a stellar 15-minute video, explore the trait of lactose intolerance. Only about 1/3 of human adults seem to still have the enzyme lactase and therefore, the ability to digest lactose. Scientists look at the DNA and the history of two cultures that might explain why. Follow the video with one of the accompanying lab activities in which biochemistry learners measure glucose changes over time after adding lactose (milk) to simulated intestinal fluid samples (lactase solution). This is a thick and creamy lesson!
This is not they typical set of teacher instructions. It is an organized chart of the important organic compounds. For each, the involved elements, the name of the building block monomers, the names of polymers, extra information, and a class demonstration is listed. Use this as a guide for preparing your lecture and demonstrations when introducing biology or biochemistry pupils to the biologically significant materials. You could even have your class do the demonstrations as a lab activity.
Throughout this five-day lesson, emerging environmentalists explore the use of ethanol as an alternative renewable energy source. On days two and three, they actually hydrolyze cornstarch and make colorimetric analyses. Be aware that specialized lab equipment is necessary for the investigation: a Vernier LabPro and Colorimeter, graphing calculators, various glassware and measurement tools.
Biology classes that are learning about respiration will set up an experiment with the rate of respiration in yeast. As sugar metabolism occurs, they collect the carbon dioxide gas that is produced, use the data to determine the respiration rate, and then graph their findings.
This four-page handout would work great as a reading guide or note-taking resource for teens learning about ATP, photosynthesis, the key scientists in the realm of photosynthesis, and more. It is designed to accompany a certain textbook, but should fit well with most resources that comprehensively cover this topic.
A three-page, mostly multiple choice quiz that would work great as a pretest/post-test for the topic of cellular respiration. It also includes diagram interpretation and a couple of short-answer written response questions. Depending on your in-class testing style, you may want to use this as a study guide for your pupils. The worksheet is in a Word document, so you could edit it as needed to fit with your own textbook/curriculum.
Designed to be a study guide or self assessment for high school biologists, the learning exercise has good questions about cell chemistry, but would need to be reformatted if you want your kids to write their answers on the paper. There are also a few other punctuation issues that should be corrected. If you are looking for some basic questions on the topic, you could start here and edit the Word document to make it useful for your class. Additionally, you could use information herein to make a Jeopardy game.
Salman Khan is very enthusiastic about the topic of cellular respiration! He provides an interesting presentation of the respiration process. Expect to learn about the basic stages of respiration, how it works in the human body, and the needs and stresses it puts on our cells.
Three terrific experiments are delineated in this biology resource. After an explanatory introduction to sugars and enzyme activity, biochemists discover whether lactase is needed to digest lactose, sucrose, and milk as a whole. High school science lab skills are required for these investigations. Use them when your biology or biochemistry class is studying enzymes or digestion.
If you need a summary of Respiration, then these 3 videos will be invaluable to your class. The actual reactions happening at the 3 stages of respiration are explained step-by-step with an explanation of every chemical bond broken or made in the substrates and products.
The details of nephron structure and the renal tubules importance in osmosis, reabsorption, and secretion of solutes and the related concentration of the final filtrate.
In these creative hands-on activities, students construct several different molecular models that represent substances that play an essential role in our nutritional needs. Using gum drops and toothpicks, students design the models. Excellent web resour
Obtain a basic understanding of photosynthesis at a chemical level. The steps involved are introduced and simplified, but they are still difficult to understand. I suggest using this resource to supplement a lecture. An overview is given of the 2 main stages; light dependent and light independent. For more details, students should watch the whole photosynthesis series.
This second video on respiration focuses on the Krebs cycle, which is sometimes known as the citric acid cycle.
