Use this printable or digital homework assignment or study guide to provide your students with quality review questions on the structure of RNA, codons, types of RNA, transcription, and translating codons into amino acids. As I teach my unit on DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis, I assign a portion of these questions for homework each night. The completed assignment provides a thorough study guide for the unit test. You can also use a few questions during class each day to check for student understanding of the concepts being taught.

This homework assignment provides 56 questions on RNA and transcription. Students will answer questions about the three types of RNA, the transcription of RNA, codons, anticodons, amino acids, and RNA editing and processing.

Both printable and digital versions of this resource are included. The student handouts can be printed or used in the paperless digital format in your Google Drive, Google Classroom, Microsoft OneDrive, or similar. This resource is perfect for traditional classroom settings, 1:1 schools, or for distance learning.

When teaching my unit on DNA, RNA and Protein Synthesis, I provide my students with 4 different homework / study guides by dividing the information into 4 blocks:

Homework #1: The Structure of DNA

Homework #2: Replication of DNA

Homework #3: RNA and Transcription

Homework #4: Translation and Protein Synthesis

This listing is for the third assignment only: RNA and Transcription. You can view all 4 assignments bundled together by clicking this link: Bundle of 4 DNA and RNA Homework Assignments

This assignment was written for my Biology I class. It covers the concepts found in any Biology I text. This homework assignment contains questions of varying formats: Compare and contrast terms, fill in the blank, multiple choice, short answer, and modified true/false.

This homework assignment is perfect to use with my DNA, RNA, and Protein Synthesis PowerPoint and Notes Bundle. Click this link to view this set.

This is what is covered in this assignment:

Homework #3: RNA and Transcription (Total of 56 questions)

  • The Genetic Code: codons, amino acids, proteins.
  • RNA: Differences between DNA and RNA, the functions of RNA, the three types of RNA (mRNA, tRNA, rRNA).
  • Transcription: Purpose of transcription, steps to transcription, promoter, terminator, RNA polymerase.
  • RNA processing and editing, introns, exons.
  • Understanding the genetic code, how codons translate into amino acids, start codons, stop codons, reading a table of codons.

Answer Key is included.
