Students will learn about biochemical pathways, photosynthesis, cellular respiration and biotechnological applications.

This unit is composed of four different modules that can be completed individually (approximately 4 hours each). The modules include:

Biology Unit 3 AOS 2: 2.1 - Biochemical pathways

Students will explore biochemical pathways through images, scaffolded explanations, and guided questions for the following:

  • biochemical pathways in photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

  • enzymes in photosynthesis and cellular respiration

  • factors that impact on enzyme function in photosynthesis and cellular respiration

Biology Unit 3 AOS 2: 2.2 - Photosynthesis

Students will explore Photosynthesis through images, scaffolded explanations, and guided questions for the following:

  • light-dependent and light-independent stages of photosynthesis in Cplants

  • the role of Rubisco in photosynthesis and adaptations of C4 and CAM plants.

  • the factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis.

Biology Unit 3 AOS 2: 2.3 - Cellular respiration

Students will explore Cellular respiration through images, scaffolded explanations, and guided questions for the following: 

  • the details of glycolysis, Krebs Cycle and the electron transport chain.

  • the differences of anaerobic fermentation in animals and yeasts.

  • the factors that affect the rate of cellular respiration.

Biology Unit 3 AOS 2: 2.4 - Biotechnological applications

Students will explore Biotechnological applications through images, scaffolded explanations, and guided questions for the following:

  • potential uses and applications of CRISPR-Cas9 technologies to improve photosynthetic efficiencies and crop yield

  • uses and applications of anaerobic fermentation of biomass for biofuel production.
