46 Slides!! And notes!! My students always prefer being taught with a powerpoint presentation. This powerpoint is packed with pictures, diagrams, and color! The title of this product is Biochemistry - The Chemistry of Biology. This product contains a 46 slide powerpoint presentation, a copy of notes for the teacher (9 pages), and a copy of the notes for the student (11 pages).
The preview contains the first two pages of notes and the first 9 slides of the powerpoint.
NOTE: This product is included in my Biochemistry Complete Unit Plan Bundle which can be viewed here: Biochemistry Bundled Unit Plan
This was written for my Biology I class. It covers the chemistry and biochemistry concepts typically found at the beginning of any Biology I text. Here is an outline of what is included:
I. The Nature of Matter: Atoms, elements, compounds
II. Chemical Bonding: ionic bonds, covalent bonds, polar and nonpolar molecules
III. The Importance of Water to Biology: The polarity of water, hydrogen bonding, solutions and suspensions, reasons why water makes life on earth possible, acids, bases, pH, and buffers.
IV. Organic Compounds: Definition, characteristics of carbon, macromolecules
V. Carbohydrates: Characteristics of carbohydrates, how to recognize them, functions or uses of carbs, the sugar molecules, starch, glycogen, cellulose
VI. Lipids: Characteristics of lipids, how to recognize the lipid molecules, saturated and unsaturated fats, fatty acids and glycerol, uses of lipids.
VII. Nucleic Acids: This section is very brief and is only an overview of what a nucleic acid is.
VIII. Proteins: Characteristics of a protein, structure of amino acids, how to recognize an amino acid, the uses of proteins.
IX. Enzymes: Facts about enzymes, equation for how an enzyme works, lock and key hypothesis, active site, substrates.
My materials are easily adaptable. You can easily add or delete material. You will receive a 46 slide powerpoint, and both a pdf and a Word document version of the student and teacher notes.
