Mastering Biology assignments will be posted on the website.
Reading Guides: Both the optional RG and required RG will be provided in class. You must take thorough notes on chapters that you forego the optional RG.
Webquests: Thermodynamic vs Kinetic Stability: Go to this site on the Wiley "Interactives in Biochemistry" website. https://www.wiley.com/college/boyer/0470003790/reviews/kinetics/kinetics_stability.htm Take any notes needed in your notebook. Do the quizzes at the end of each section (3). Expect several test questions.
Cellular Respiration: 1-Cell Respiration Webquest (this on www.phschool.com; find 'biocoach'). Do handout given in class 2-Bioflix Study Sheet Cellular Respiration -This is on the Pearson website and likely will be done as a mastering assignment. If not, a handout will be given in class.
Photosynthesis Webquest: Photosynthesis WQ- problems opening this at school in 2018. Here is an alternate P'syn WQ, if needed. This will be done as a mastering assignment: Go to BioFlix on Pearson site and complete handout given in class.
Case Study: Killing Chloroplasts (hard copy given in class)
FYI: 1- A request was made for a link to my Magnet Biology Respiration PPt. Here it is. 2- Also: Magnet Biology PPt for Photosynthesis (*these are optional) 3- If you're having trouble with Gibb's Law and Free Energy (enthalpy & entropy) equation, watch this for a really clear explanation. He goes over all concepts from Chap 8.
Recommended for study: Prezis by Mr. David Knuffke (the former head moderator on the College Board AP Bio Teacher Community Site). There is a hyperlink to all of his Prezis (for every unit ) on the 'Resources' page
If you're having trouble with Gibb's Law and Free Energy (enthalpy & entropy) equation, watch this lecture for a really clear explanation. He goes over all concepts from Chap 8. Great Video lecture on Photosynthesis on youtube. Recommended, if you're having trouble, or want to use it for review.
