Students are asked to describe the difference between the contents of the test tubes used and to explain the purpose for this particular difference. They are shown a graph of yeast cell population v. time and asked to describe two conditions that could prevent the number of living yeast cells from increasing with time beyond a certain point.

Lesson Planet has been one of the primary ingredients for the mortar I need in order to successfully provide a positive learning environment for my students. It saves me the effort of weeding through the abyss of internet resources available and provides quality resources from qualified and experienced teachers. Thank You!!!
