Friday, December 12, 2014
Objectives:
- Provide evidence for the products of the light dependent reactions and the light-independent reactions of photosynthesis.
- By transfer and explicit instruction, understand that cellular respiration is a process occurring in a separate organelle of eukaryotic (including plants!) organisms (mitochondria) that exquisitely reverses the process of photosynthesis and releases the energy stored in glucose.

Agenda:
1) Redo Experiment
2) Debrief for Data Analysis - Here is the Data
