Taking efficient notes can be a big challenge for many students, especially when working from a Powerpoint lecture. This outline gives students a means to take notes that guides them toward important concepts and avoids the pitfalls of writing word-for-word or simply not taking notes at all. The outline is written as a series of questions, fill-in-the-blanks, or diagrams.
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.
