Cellular Respiration is one of the hardest topics that we must teach to our biology and life science students. The key to success is to provide good instruction followed by a good review exercise. Much review and reinforcement is needed to make sure that our students master the information. I pass out this 9-page study guide at the beginning of my unit on respiration. Each day I assign a portion of the questions for homework. By the end of the unit, my students have a completed study guide for the unit test.
This document is a 9 page student worksheet consisting of 76 questions. The questions rage in difficulty level. Question types include short answer, multiple choice, fill in the blank, and true / false. Students will also draw and label diagrams and complete flow charts of the stages of respiration.
All answers are included in the 5 page teacher guide that is included with this product.
The questions are of varying difficulty levels. Question types include compare and contrast, fill in the blank, short answer, multiple choice, labeling and true/false. You will receive both a Word document as well as a pdf form of the study guide. Many of the questions are basic and concrete in nature, but many of the questions involve critical thinking and problem solving skills.
Topics covered are:
1. The importance of food.
2. Chemical energy and ATP, structure of the ATP molecule, the conversion of ADP to ATP.
3. The relationship between photosynthesis and respiration, the reactants and products of photosynthesis and respiration, the use and release of energy in photosynthesis and respiration.
4. Overview of Respiration, definition, equation for respiration, types of respiration, stages of respiration.
5, Details of glycolysis, ATP use, ATP production, NADH, end products, advantages and disadvantages of glycolysis.
6. The fate of pyruvic acid, what happens if oxygen is present, what happens if oxygen is absent.
7. Overview of aerobic respiration, Krebs cycle, electron transport chain, differences in respiration in prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells, structure of the mitochondria.
8. The bridge reaction of the conversion of pyruvic acid to acetyl CoA.
9. The Krebs cycle, ATP production, NADH production, FADH2 production, carbon dioxide release.
10. Summary of the Krebs cycle
11. The electron transport chain, definition, use of NADH and FADH2, the pumping of hydrogen protons across the membrane, ATP synthase, ATP production, the production of water.
12. Recap of electron transport
13. ATP accounting
15. Alcoholic fermentation
16. Lactic acid fermentation
17. The evolution of anaerobic and aerobic pathways.
18. A comparison of photosynthesis and respiration.
