Chapter 7 Capturing Solar Energy: Photosynthesis The learning goals listed below are the broad concepts you should understand for this chapter. The learning outcomes list the concepts you should know or the things you should be able to do at the end of this unit. Some of the learning outcomes will be covered in class and the remainder you should achieve through reading, studying, and homework. Learning Goals and Intended Outcomes Learning Goal Learning Outcome(s) 1. Explain how most organisms on Earth depend on photosynthesis for energy rich molecules and oxygen. 1. Define key terms. (p.125 of text) 2. Write the overall chemical reaction for photosynthesis and explain where the reactants come from and what the products are used for. 3. Identify the two groups of reactions in photosynthesis and explain how they are linked. 2. Understand how photosynthetic organisms capture solar energy and store it as chemical energy. 1. Describe the general structural features of leaves
