Student Learning Map Biology Unit 5 – Metabolism in Autotrophs and Heterotrophs (I) Days: 12 Unit Essential Question Key Learning How do the processes of photosynthesis and cellular respiration show evidence of chemical reactions? 1. Autotrophs "produce" the energy that they use, while heterotrophs must "consume" their energy sources. 2. Although some reactions result in a net storage of energy, others result in a net release. 3. Biochemical pathways are influenced by enzymes. Concept 1 Concept 2 Concept 3 Autotrophs and heterotrophs (C) Chemical Reactions (E) Photosynthesis (I) EQ 1.1: How do the abilities of an autotroph differ from those of a heterotroph? EQ 2.1: How do special molecules like ATP and NADH aid chemical reactions? EQ 3.1: Why is the process of photosynthesis considered to be a synthesis reaction? EQ 3.2: How does energy flow from process to process during photosynthesis? Vocabulary Vocabulary Vocabulary Autotroph Heterotroph Photosynthesis ATP Decomposition Synthesis Calvin cycle Electron transport chain Light dependent reactions Light independent reactions Concept 4 Concept 5 Concept 6 Aerobic Respiration (I) Chloroplast and Mitochondrial similarities in form and function (E) Anaerobic respiration (I) EQ 4.1: Why is cellular respiration considered to be decomposition reaction? EQ 4.2: How does energy flow through the process of cellular respiration? EQ 5.1: How are the structures of chloroplasts and mitochondria related? EQ 6.1: Why is the process of fermentation necessary in oxygen free environments? Vocabulary Vocabulary Vocabulary Aerobic respiration Glycolysis Krebs cycle ATP synthase Proton pump Anaerobic respiration Fermentation Literacy Components BDA: Fad diets 3

Based on our class activity, describe why each of the following occurs. Concept I: Autotrophs vs Heterotrophs EQ 1.1: How do the abilities of an autotroph differ from those of a heterotroph? Previewing: L2 - Read section 8-1 on pages 226 - 228 of your text. Activation: Read the following paragraph and answer the questions that follow: The process by which light energy is converted to chemical energy is called photosynthesis. Organisms that use energy from the sun to produce organic sugars are called autotrophs. Most autotrophs conduct photosynthesis, but some use inorganic molecules to produce organic compounds in a process called chemosynthesis. Autotrophs are found in the following kingdoms of life: Eubacteria, Archaebacteria, Plantae, and Protista. Organisms, such as animals, that are unable to produce their own energy are called heterotrophs, or more commonly consumers. Both Autotrophs and Heterotrophs use a process called Cellular respiration to break down the organic compounds stored by autotrophs and re-store the energy in molecules that are more readily used by the cell during chemical reactions.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
