Description:

Students will be able to:

  • differentiate between autotrophs and heterotrophs
  • express the chemical equation for Cellular Respiration
  • explain the 3 stages of Cellular Respiration, including WHERE each takes place, and WHAT is gained from each stage
  • discuss 2 types of fermentation as alternate pathways of energy production in particular organisms when oxygen is in limited supply

This lesson is a brief introduction to the metabolic process of Cellular Respiration, intended for the secondary classroom. Cellular respiration is a process utilized by living organisms to gain the energy necessary for cellular activity.  When oxygen is present, aerobic cellular respiration is a three-fold process that produces large quantities of ATP, the chief energy molecule necessary for cells to do their 'work.'  Each of these steps occur in specific locations within the cell. In the absence of oxygen, cells of certain organisms engage in fermentation processes which produce greatly reduced amounts of this energy molecule. 

This video lesson can be viewed with the aid of the guided notes, also included with this unit.  

After completion of this self-study students will engage in both group and laboratory activities while in the classroom to build upon their knowledge.  A summative assessment in the form of a unit quiz will complete the study.
