Macromolecules and Enzymes
This Powerpoint provides the structure and ordering of the unit. Break up the lecture into sections by adding activites, discussions, labs, and videos. This will allow the material within the unit to be taught in small, managable amounts, while giving students the opportunity to apply the knowledge in a variety of different ways.
Essential concepts: Valence electrons, octet rule, carbon, organic compounds, organic chemistry, macromolecules, carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, monomer, polymer, monosaccharides, disaccharides, polysaccharides, glucose, fructose, galactose, lactose, sucrose, starch, chitin, cellulose, glycogen, glycerol, fatty acids, saturated fatty acids, unsaturated fatty acids, phospholipids, phospholipid bilayer, protein shape, protein function, primary structure, secondary structure, tertiary structure, quaternary structure, sickle cell anemia, denaturation, enzymes, activation energy.
Test questions: Available at the biology instructor resources subscription page.
