Grasping the Concept - Photosynthesis and Cellular Respiration

Grasping the Concept

  1. Trace both of your hands on your paper as shown above
  2. In the palm area of your left hand write Photosynthesis and make a simple, multi colored sketch representing it
  3. On each digit, write a vocabulary term, minor concept, figure, event, or equation related to the topic on the palm
  4. At the end of each digit include a simple multi colored sketch representing what is on the digit
  5. The thumb opposes the other digits, so the thumb should have a related but somewhat opposite or different slant than the other digits

  7. Repeat the process for the right hand with the topic of cellular respiration

Yeast Summative Lab

Each flask contained 100 ml of water, measured with a graduated cylinder, and 2 grams of yeast. One flask also had 10 grams of sugar added to the flask. Both were allowed to sit and be kept warm until a reaction could occur. These photos are the "after" photos. When set up both flasks looked like the flask without sugar.

Starting mass with sugar = 226 g, ending mass with sugar = 225 g
Starting mass without sugar = 198 g, ending mass without sugar = 198 g

This is the lab set up with the flask without sugar on the scale

This is the flask without sugar added

This is the flask with sugar added to the yeast and water
