A lively presentation presents general facts and history of nucleic acids in a note-taking format. Every slide contains colorful photos or graphics to illuminate and engage. Biology aces learn about the function and structure of these essential molecules. After showing this presentation, have them create models of the double helix out of various craft materials.
This is a polished presentation of the nucleic acids. It is unique in that it examines both the genetic material and the energy molecules. Usually these are addressed separately even though they are both nucleic acids. This approach is most appropriate for your biochemistry buffs. It is straightforward, educational, and contains explanatory diagrams. It earns an A+!
Students learn about the four biochemicals that are important biologically. In this biochemicals lesson plan, students identify the four major groups of biochemicals including carbohydrates, proteins, lipids and nucleic acids. They are given notes and demonstrations for each type of biochemical and complete a"4 groups chart". They complete the instructional activity with a short quiz on each biochemical.
Explore the roles of RNA with this PowerPoint presentation. Viewers will learn about messenger RNA, transfer RNA, and ribosomal RNA. You will appreciate the time and thought put into preparing this concise presentation as you use it to teach your young biologists about this vital nucleic acid.
This sequence of slides covers each main macromolecule that is involved with human structure and function. The history of nucleotide research and the way that they are formed is summarized, a diagram accompanies the explanation. The main examples of their function are listed.
Young environmentalists examine the biogeochemical cycles: carbon, nitrogen, phosphorous, and water. Explanatory notes and colorful diagrams are presented for each, followed by a blank diagram that is filled in click-by-click as a reinforcement. After teaching the cycles, time is spent on limiting nutrients and eutrophication in aquatic ecosystems. This commendable PowerPoint will educate and arrest the attention of your high schoolers.
Biochemistry scholars will be well prepared for an exam on biomolecules after completing this concise assignment! There are 75 short-answer questions about the chemical makeup, functions, and relationships between organic molecules. Learners will address carbohydrates, lipids, proteins, nucleic acids, and enzymes. Have them complete the worksheet and use it as a study guide.
Two different independent slide shows are rolled into this resource. The first focuses on two types of cell division: binary fission and mitosis. Diagrams incorporated into the slides are large, clear, colorful, and extremely helpful in explaining what happens to the nucleus at each stage. The second lesson is about DNA. A slide is dedicated to each of the main components of the DNA molecule and then the double helix structure is displayed. Other material covered includes replication, mutation, and protein synthesis. There is plenty to appreciate about this resource!
A great review of the structure and function of carbon-based molecules important to life, especially with relevance to humans. The chemistry behind the combination of polymers and the breakdown of bonds is covered. Valuable content in this slideshow is the collection of diagrams of each functional group.
Examine the structures of the kidney and then define the functions of the specialised structures. Every will find this powerpoint engaging, many of the images will present facts such as osmolarity of interstitial fluid and the negative feedback loop, and will provide inportant data and facts useful to their study.
Don't be fooled by the title - this biology quiz could serve as an AP biology or college-level biology quiz. Some of the molecules represented may be difficult to identify without seeing the textbook from which this is based. It could serve as a great extension to quick learners.
