Standard 1f: Students know usable energy is captured from sunlight by
chloroplasts and is stored through the synthesis of sugar from carbon
Stnadard 1g: Students know the role of the mitochondria in making stored
chemical-bond energy available to cells by completing the breakdown of
glucose to carbon dioxide.
*Standard 1i: Students know how chemiosmotic gradients in the mitochondria
and chloroplast store energy for ATP production.
Photosynthesis - time line of discoveries
Summary of Photosynthesis, with a comprehensive glossary.
ATP charging - simplistic, but cute.
An animated clear explanation fo electron and protons (hydrogen
Animation of Light-dependent reaction: Electorn Transport and
making ATP and
Calvin cycle animation step by step/ Pretty good!
Animation of the light-dependent reaction, including electorn
and NADPH production.
Great little animations of both photosynthesis and respiration
Animation of glycolysis with emphasis on ATP gain and NAD+
Animation of biochemical pathways in general: A series of enzyme-
Animations with simple text - Metabolism
Some of the figures in your handouts - in color! (from the
the other textbook..)
Metabolism 4 Kids - simplistic but shows the essential overall
Electron Transport Animation!
Respiration text from Troy high-School
Photosythesis chemical animation (not critical) and three
Photosynthesis SIMULATION - Change light intensity and
the consequences in terms of energy storage in ATP.
Photosynthesis SIMULATION - Change light intensity and color of
amount of CO2 and watch
the consequences in terms of oxygen release. FANTASTIC!
Photosynthesis Simulation - Elodea
Video: Yeast! (Mentions Fermentation in bread and wine
Photosynthesis simulation - new link
Photosynthesis discoveries - short simple text with chart to
From organ (leaf) to cells (leaf cell) to organelles
(chloroplast) to molecules (photosynthesis components) -
All you wanted to know about photosynthesis, both on-the-surface,
Articles, animations, tutorials and more.
Metabolism - Animation, by the same creaters of the animation of
the Amylase reaction (If you know what I mean)
Inner Life: Respiration in the Mitochondria. Created by the same
animator of "The Inner Life of the Cell". Just as beautiful, but
honestly - too complicated (for me, too) without a narrative. So,
enjoy the view, and hope to get some explanations soon!
