Cell respiration and photosynthesis used to be linked under a general heading: Cell energetics. Look at the image above. This makes sense!
SCOPE & SEQUENCE
So, first a scope and sequence for this part of the syllabus (incl. photosynthesis):
HL and SL content for this part of the syllabus is substantially different. Be warned! This Blog page was set up with HL students in mind so, if you are an SL student, check out the syllabus necessities (below) before you go too deep.
Energy relationships, a Powerpoint: ENERGY RELATIONSHIPS SIMPLE INTRO
ATP/ADP Powerpoint: ATP
The Core syllabus (2.8):
The HL syllabus (8.2)
CORE READING (from Biology for the IB Diploma Second Edition, C.J.Clegg, Hodder Education, 2014)
OVERVIEW OF CELL RESPIRATION
This is a really straightforward page on the biochemistry of cell respiration: http://www.rsc.org/Education/Teachers/Resources/cfb/respiration.htmhttp://www.rsc.org/Education/Teachers/Resources/cfb/respiration.htm This make s a good starting point, as well as a good learning resource.
There are a few simulation labs out. Here is the Pearson one: http://www.phschool.com/science/biology_place/labbench/lab5/intro.html
