This PowerPoint file is a wonderful presentation about the basics of organic molecules and carbohydrates. The PowerPoint begins with a discussion of organic molecules being based around carbon. The difference between monomers and polymers is discussed. Then, the presentation shifts into carbohydrates, which are 1 of the 4 types of organic molecule. In this section, monosaccharides and polysaccharides are discussed. At the end is a quick set of review questions for your students to discuss. This PowerPoint contains a very nice collection of images and animations to assist with understanding. All pictures used are in the “public domain” so there is no worry of copyright violation.
I usually present this PowerPoint over the course of two days of instruction. In day one, I will discuss organic molecules. And then in day two, I will discuss carbohydrates. But if you were to present the presentation all at once, I would estimate this to take around 30 minutes depending on the amount of questions the students may ask.
I have also included a “fill-in-the-blank” style worksheet to accompany these notes for you to distribute to your students if you wish.
Free addition! For no extra charge, I am including an internet based worksheet about carbohydrates that I use for review. This worksheet will ask the students to visit a website that reviews the characteristics of carbohydrates. The website is a quick read and most students will finish the internet worksheet in under 15 minutes.
