Activity 1: Basic Enzyme Concepts (select “The Basics”)
Download a copy of the accompanying worksheet here.
New enzyme animation! (the basics)
Activity 2: Advanced Enzyme Concepts (select inhibition, cooperativity, and feedback)

Informational Link 1: animation showing the relationship among the e.r. and Golgi
Activity 1 "Cell Transport" select "Passive Transport" (read and take notes on the animation; BE PATIENT- the animations take a while to load and complete)
the sodium potassium pump (select sodium potassium exchange)
Tying it all together:
The neuron: basic neuron design and the action potential (select "Action potential propagation...")
The synapse: (select "Chemical Synapse" ) shows what happens at the synapse highlighting diffusion, ion channels, exocytosis, cell communication, vesicle formation (think back to the endomembrane system!)
The neuromuscular junction: reviewing the concepts in the above link but also shows gated channels and the stimulation of muscle by a neuron (select "Function of the Neuromuscular Junction")
Informational Link 2: animation showing phagocytosis
Informational Link 3: animation applying the use of various transport mechanisms (diffusion, exocytosis), membrane receptors, vesicles in the functioning of a neuron (select "Chemical Synapse") (remember the sodium-potassium pump resets the neuron so that it can "re-fire")
PowerPoint presentation from class (cell structure only)
Mouse Party- a look at how concepts learned in chapters 3 and 4 can be applied to the understanding of drug addiction

Activity 1: Download the instructions for the activity here.
Activity 2: "Concept 6: Chloroplast Structure". After labeling the diagram, download a copy to hand in. On your downloaded copy, indicate where the light reactions occur and where the Calvin cycle occurs. You might also want to try your hand at taking the self-quiz. Many of these questions you should be able to answer.

Photosynthesis Homework Questions
Animation showing absorption of light by PS 2 and PS 1 (By the way PS = PhotoSystem NOT Play Station!) (Correlates to figs. 8.6 and 10.10 in packet)
Animation showing the transfer of electrons from PS 2 to PS 1 and the production of ATP and NADPH (Correlates to the "electron transport system" arrow of fig. 8.6)
Animation showing the overall relationship between the light reactions and the Calvin cycle (Correlates to fig.10.4 in packet)

Animation 1 showing DNA replication (nice and simple)
Animation 2 showing DNA Replication Please allow some time for this site to load. This site goes into the chemistry a bit more that you need. Pay attention to the summary points that get presented at the top of each section, these help a lot. You also have a benefit of taking little quizzes to check for understanding.
