This 15-slide powerpoint presentation covers 'Topic 2.8 - Cell Respiration' in the 2016 IB Biology curriculum. Each slide includes the specific learning objective as well as key vocabulary that students should note.
The presentation itself contains minimal information as it is intended to be used with teacher guidance. They are also formatted to be visually pleasing and to print well for handouts or revision. Please see the preview file for an idea of the slide aesthetic and level of detail.
As always, please let me know if you have any suggestions for improvements. These are always a work in progress!
U1: Cell respiration is the controlled release of energy from organic compounds to produce ATP.
U2: ATP from cell respiration is immediately available as a source of energy in the cell.
U3: Anaerobic cell respiration gives a small yield of ATP from glucose.
U4: Aerobic cell respiration requires oxygen and gives a large yield of ATP from glucose.
A1: Use of anaerobic cell respiration in yeasts to produce ethanol and carbon dioxide in baking.
A2: Lactate production in humans when anaerobic respiration is used to maximize the power of muscle contractions.
S1: Analysis of results from experiments involving measurement of respiration rates in germinating seeds or invertebrates using a respirometer.
