Instructional Ideas

  • Break students into groups and have them work through the handout together, then discuss
  • Ask pupils to research how much energy biological processes such as active transport in human cells require
Classroom Considerations

  • Learners should understand the basic principles of conservation of mass and energy and have some prior knowledge of cellular respiration
Pros

  • Participants work with the information in a simplified form, which allows you to build on a solid foundation as the class progresses
  • The worksheet is easy to follow and very informative
Cons

  • None
