**The preview file is a pdf version of all the slides for you to review before purchasing the real thing
This powerpoint presentation covers Topic 8.2 in the IB Biology curriculum. Specifically, it covers the details of photosynthesis including the light-dependent and light-independent reactions (see learning objectives below).
Each slide is labelled with the specific learning objective and animation/video links are provided in the slide notes. The slides are formatted to print well for handouts or revision and I can provide a pdf version upon request.
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
**IB Biology Learning Objectives:
8.2.1 - Draw and label a diagram showing the structure of a chloroplast as seen in electron micrographs.
8.2.2 - State that photosynthesis consists of light-dependent and light-independent reactions.
8.2.3 - Explain the light-dependent reactions.
8.2.4 - Explain photophosphorylation in terms of chemiosmosis.
8.2.5 - Explain the light-independent reactions.
8.2.6 - Explain the relationship between the structure of the chloroplast and its function.
8.2.7 - Explain the relationship between the action spectrum and the absorption spectrum of photosynthetic pigments in green plants.
8.2.8 - Explain the concept of limiting factors in photosynthesis, with reference to light intensity, temperature and concentration of carbon dioxide.
