It says that it is for a general biology course, but it seems to be more specific to biochemistry. Enzyme action and amino acid structure are the topics of this college level activity. Takers match protease enzymes to their specificities. They answer questions and analyze graphs of enzyme activity.
Vocabulary that is essential to this topic is introduced and defined at the start of this slide show. The following slides help students understand proteins and their use and involvement in everyday substances. Great diagrams help your class understand the overall appearance and behavior of proteins, and the broad topic will help activate prior knowledge.
Eighteen bright blue slides with bold fonts exhibit types of proteins, amino acids, and peptides. Chemistry learners are able to identify polar and nonpolar amino acids, amino acid structures, and various types of peptides when they finish viewing this collection of slides. Present this as part of your organic chemistry unit.
This resource outlines and summarizes 8 pages of a text on actions of hormones on target cells. The handout portion includes vocabulary clarifications, color diagrams, and important information; however, there are also references to online quiz questions, which are not included. The resource ends with 17 study questions that refer to the given information. You could use this as a study guide for a test.
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.
Twenty-six pages of biology questions, mostly in multiple-choice form, are included in the all-encompassing New York State Regents exam. It assesses every topic typically covered in a high-school biology course. Create your own answer sheet and use this as your final exam, or get ideas from it for questions to create your own.
Translation, the second half of the protein synthesis process, is reviewed in this nifty handout. Young DNA experts explain what codons are and how they work. They label diagrams and differentiate between introns and exons. The instructional activity is of high enough quality to photocopy and distribute. One of the diagrams is in color; however, so you might want to have learners access the instructional activity online for best viewing and simply write their answers on a separate sheet of paper.
College-level biologists describe ions and van der Waals forces. They identify parts of amino acid chains on diagrams and describe the chains in a checklist. In a second section, learners compare prokaryotic to eukaryotic cells and then match organelles with their functions or characteristics. Finally, they mark portions of a sequence of amino acids that are expected to be transmembrane regions. This is an ideal assignment to give as a unit review.
Ms. Strohfeldt did not omit anything when she designed this comprehensive lesson plan on DNA mutation and sex-linked traits. Begin with a pretest as an anticipatory set. Read a case history of the Clark family and the occurrence of hemophilia in the family. Biologists perform a simulation of a gel electrophoresis for each member of the family and explore DNA sequences. You will find detailed teacher's notes, worksheets with answer keys, and resource links to help you teach this lesson.
This organic chemistry lab activity is appropriate for teaching polymerization, percent yield, melting point, or the types and uses of polymer materials. Chemistry pupils imagine that they are working for a company to develop a special polymer and then work in the lab to synthesize nylon. The teacher page offers very little instruction, but since the student lab handout is thorough, it provides enough for you to carry this lesson out in your advanced or organic chemistry class.
An information-packed eight-page article detailing the history of understanding active transport across cell membranes makes up the bulk of this handout. Two pages of reading comprehension and critical-thinking questions follow. The article is fascinating and illuminates the importance of aquaporins and the ion channels present in cell membranes. This reading analysis would serve as an enriching assignment for your biology class when studying the cell membrane or homeostasis.
