Photosyn and respiration

  1. 1. • Construct Interactive Notes • Staple 5 pages of binder paper to cover • On Cover, write Photosynthesis and Respiration Unit Name and period Draw a color picture
  2. 2. Definitions (pg 2) Photosynthesis 1. 2. 3. Cellular Respiration 1. 2. 3. Autotroph 1. 2. 3. Heterotroph 1. 2. 3. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) 1. 2. 3.
  3. 3. • Photosynthesis: Process in which plants and cyanobacteria use light energy to convert carbon dioxide into glucose (sugar)
  4. 4. • Cellular Respiration: Process in which glucose (sugar) is broken down in the presence of oxygen to produce energy (ATP). Occurs in the mitochondria
  5. 5. • Autotroph: An organism that is able to make its own food using energy from sunlight or chemicals
  6. 6. • Heterotroph: Organism that cannot make its own food. It obtains food by consuming other living things.
  7. 7. • Adenosine triphosphate (ATP): Consists of adenine, a 5-carbon sugar called ribose, and 3 phosphate groups. Cells use ATP to store and release energy. When a phosphate breaks off of ATP it produces adenosine diphosphate (ADP) and releases energy
