Product Description
This biochemistry product includes three items:

1) A graphic organizer table for students to take notes on the basic characteristics of 7 key chemical functional groups in biological macromolecules. - 1 pg

2) A worksheet to practice identifying the functional groups and identifying isomers. A brief description of each molecule is provided and then students circle and label the functional groups. Three questions also address types of isomers (structural, geometric, and enantiomers). Few quality worksheets like this exist! - 2 pgs

3) A short quiz in which students must identify each of the 7 functional groups on a molecule. - 1 pg

Answer keys are provided for all 3 resources.

The functional groups included: hydroxyl, carbonyl, carboxyl, amine, sulfhydryl, phosphate, and methyl. These are the most fundamental chemical groups to understand basic organic chemistry in the context of biology.
