Concise, easy-to-understand reading on cellular energy transformations--ATP, Photosynthesis, and Respiration. The accompanying guided notes allow students to take charge of their own learning and dive into the material with concept maps, charts, and tables. Balanced literacy is developed with the guided notes. Topics covered are the ATP/ADP cycle, aerobic cellular respiration, and anaerobic respiration including fermentation and lactic acid metabolism. An optional section covers plant structures that facilitate photosynthesis. Each section is chunked on separate pages to allow the student to concentrate on a single subheading.
