In this chemistry worksheet, students identify and define various types of carbohydrates. Then they draw a Haworth projection representing monosaccharaides. Students also draw a Fischer projection to illustrate the structure of glucose.
Do Plants Eat?
Learners explain that photosynthesis is a process that plants use to convert light energy into glucose. They summarize photosynthesis as a chemical process in which the plant uses carbon dioxide and water to form glucose and oxygen.
Solubility Rule - Like Dissolves Like
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.
Testing for Life
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.
New! The Simple Story of Photosynthesis and Food
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.
New! Got Lactase? The Co-Evolution of Genes and Culture
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!
Conversion of Glucose to Fructose
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.
Graphing Glucose Tolerance Test Results.
Students graph glucose test results to compare between people with and without diabetes. In this investigative lesson students participate in activities that allow them to better understand diabetes and how to graph results.
Enzymes Help Us Digest Food ~ Introduction to Sugars and Enzymes
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.
The Four Groups of Biologically Important Compounds
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.
Alcoholic Fermentation in Yeast
Biology classes will bubble with excitement as they complete this assignment. Beginning with an informative overview of cellular respiration and fermentation processes, the highlight comes as an experiment in determining the rate of alcoholic fermentation in yeast. This is accomplished by providing various concentrations of sucrose solution and measuring the amount of carbon dioxide produced during respiration. This lab sheet will keep young scientists organized and on-task.
Though this isn't the neatest reproduction of a worksheet, the exercises in understanding organic molecules are invaluable. In addition to answering questions about the general structure of biomolecules, diagrams displaying a condensation reaction and hydrolysis are provided for learners to assess. You will be happy to add this to your supply of biochemistry assignments.
Cell Wall Chemistry of Biofuel
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.
Chemistry 116 Exam 2 Summer 2009
Written for an introductory organic and biochemistry course, this exam will challenge your class. They label functional groups and stereocenters on drawings of molecules, draw structures given the name, complete drawings of chemical reactions, and answer questions about the characteristics of organic compounds. There are 13 problems in all, and a periodic table is provided for reference.
Introduction to Cellular Respiration
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.
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.
Secondary Active Transport in the Nephron
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.
Making Molecular Models
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.
Krebs/Citric Acid Cycle
This second video on respiration focuses on the Krebs cycle, which is sometimes known as the citric acid cycle.
