Covering the molecular interactions involved with DNA packing and the control of gene activity in depth, this slideshow is useful for higher-level biology students. The biochemical components of protein translation are diagrammed and labeled, and will be much clearer when the are displayed in this manner.
Ninth graders first summarize the process of translation, and then they identify and restate the processes of DNA replication, transcription, and translation in their own words. They also define the purpose of each and identify what the base pairing rules are and the different types of RNA.
In this DNA worksheet, students review the base-pairing rules, transcription, and translation. Students determine the DNA complimentary strand and mRNA complimentary strand for a given DNA strand. This worksheet has 8 multiple choice, 1 short answer, and 4 problems to solve.
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.
