No School - Observed Columbus Day

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Objectives:
Describe how energy is stored or released during a chemical reaction
Identify the effect of Entropy (S), Temperature and Enthalpy (H)
Identify Gibbs Free Energy Equation and relate it to a first order algebraic equation
Identify endergonic and exergonic chemical reactions
Identify and describe enzymes as biological catalysts
Define substrates and enzymes

Agenda:
Opener - College Pride Day - BS, M.Ed., M.Ed.
Available Energy (Gibbs Free Energy) Introduction

HW:
Review the videos and learn the definitions for the following:
Entropy, Enthalpy, Endergonic, Exergonic, Gibbs Free Energy
Go back and seek to understand the graphs/diagrams shared in the videos


Wednesday, October 15, 2014

Objectives:

Design an investigation in which catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide
Measure volumes and time using appropriate tools

Agenda:

Part 1: Overview of Experiment
Bozeman Biology Enzyme Catalysis Experiment

Catalase Experiment

Part 2: Demonstration of Catalase activity
Catalase Experiment

Identify possible variables that can be controlled or manipulated to carry out an independent investigation. Watch videos to get some ideas:
Video Experiments -
Experiment #1,
Experiment #2
Experiment #3
Experiment #4
Experiment #5

Part 3: Discuss Safety Concerns and Personal Protective Equipment Needs for carrying out your investigations.

Part 4: Communicate with your group and come to a consensus about which variable you will manipulate in the investigation for tomorrow.
1 - Write your procedure.
2 - Share your materials and procedures with your teacher.
3 - Begin assembling materials for your experiment.

HW:
Prepare for tomorrow's investigation
