Unit Overview


Lesson Objectives

Learning
Experiences and Teaching Strategies


a.

Organizational hierarchy of living things



Atoms (SPONCH), Molecules, Cells, Tissues, Organs, Organ systems, Organisms

b.

Carbon based life



Examine carbon as a suitable element for the construction of more complex
molecules and
therefore life.



Build simple biological molecule
-

glucose, amino acid, lipid

c.

i. Bio
-
molecules


ii. The four main groups of bio
-
molecules




All large biological molecules are made up of smaller groups called monomers attached
together in
condensation reactions to form polymers



condensation reaction involves removal of a water molecule and formation of a bond linking
monomers together



hydrolysis reactions break up polymers into their smaller monomers; involves the addition of
water and brea
king of the bond

d.

carbohydrates made up of C, H, O




sugars


monomers



disaccharides


2 sugars linked together



polysaccharides


many sugar molecules linked together to form long chains: starch, glycogen,
cellulose



short
-
term energy storage

e.

lipids made
up of C, H, O

a.

fats and oils




composed of glycerol (3
-
C sugar) and long
-
chain fatty acids (NOT POLYMERS)



contain more energy per gram than carbohydrates



used for long
-
term energy storage

f.

proteins made of C, H, O, N, S




composed of monomers


amino acids



linked together by peptide bonds (also condensation
-
type reaction)



functions of proteins



structural (muscle, hair, fingernails)



Lab


measuring the strength of hair (D,E,F)



Enzymes

g.

The presence of bio
-
molecules in foods can be
determined through the use o
f specific tests



The presence of bio
-
molecules in foods can be determined through the use of specific tests


Gotcha Lab (F)

h.

Enzymes



Enzymes are protein molecules which function as catalysts for chemical reactions that take
place in the cell.



Catalysts
speed up chemical reactions but are not themselves changed in the reaction.



Enzymes are specific.



Enzymes act on substrate molecules.



Enzymes are not used up in a reaction.



Enzymes can be used more than once.



An example of an enzyme
-
catalyzed reaction is

the breakdown of hydrogen peroxide by


Differentiation



Model building for bio
-
molecules



Extra time/support give for tests

IT:

Online activities/Research skills

English:

Referencing



Approaches to Learning

Thinking skills:

Give a personal opinion and support it with reasoned argument

Research skills:

Plan and carry out a research exercise directed towards specific and detailed information obtained forma a variety of sources
.

Research skills:

locating and presenting information , acknowledging sources

catalase.



Enzymes depend on their structure. Their structure can be affected by their environment: pH,
temp



Lab


How does Surface area affect the rate of enzyme controlled reaction (E)



Lab



Vegetable and
catalase (
D,E,F)



Industrial use of enzymes (poster) (B)

i.

nucleic acids




DNA found in chromosomes
-

genetic information, Double helix



RNA found in cytoplasm


site of protein synthesis



Monomers


nucleotides



Nucleotides made up of: nitrogen bases, sugars, phosphate
groups



DNA extraction (F)

j.

DNA to protein


brief study of protein synthesis.
Emphasise that proteins (enzymes) are the
control freaks of the biological world



Transcription


copying DNA to RNA



Translation


RNA to Protein

k.

Understand how changes to the
DNA can cause
changes to the protein and thus affect control in
the organism.



Hands on activity to show how errors in DNA can cause control problems

l.

Universality of the genetic code



Link back to Panspermia and the Universality of Adenine.



Compare
phylogenies

m.

Genetic engineering: process and ethics



What are our future choices and who should make these decisons

Communication:

Take care over the presentation of work and have a sense of what helps and hinders effective communication

Communication:

writing a lab report using an appropriate format

Self mana
gement:

Can use equipment effectively and use time appropriately

Self management:

completing an experiment effectively and within a time limit

Social:

Working independently and in small groups on a given task
