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.
Advanced chemistry learners assimilate amides by viewing this presentation. Scroll through pages of information about the functional group, how amides are prepared, nomenclature, and the role in the formation of proteins. This is a no-frills presentation that details the facts using simple black fonts and perfectly constructed diagrams.
For this DNA worksheet, students describe how the cell stores all of the data needed to produce the required proteins for the body. Then they describe the ribosomes division and how is attaches itself to RNA and makes protein by forming peptide bonds between amino acids.
Stretch the brains of your organic chemists with this amazing concept map. A list of 31 organic molecules is provided on one page, and a graphic organizer with empty boxes for each is provided on the second page. Unfortunately the photocopy of the concept map is not the most crisp, but the value of this exercise is not diluted.
This biochemistry practice exam queries takers on the organic molecules. Pupils write IUPAC names, identify boiling and melting points of different compounds, and more. This is definitely designed for a college-level biochemistry course, but if you have an AP chemistry class that is addressing some of these concepts it may be useful for you as well.
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.
Budding biologists will increase their understanding of proteins watching this presentation. The structure of proteins is presented, as well as information about hydrolysis and denaturation. "Learning Check" slides are inserted throughout, along with the solutions immediately following. Although the title includes amino acids and enzymes, these topics are not covered. Bold and bright, this will make teaching proteins a cinch!
