BioCoach Activity



Photosynthesis is a process by which light energy is converted into chemical energy. Understanding energy conversions is not trivial, and this BioCoach activity is designed to enhance your understanding and retention of the content by illustrating and animating the fundamental processes involved in photosynthesis.

This activity consists of a brief overview of photosynthesis using nine interactive animations and a 25-question multiple-choice quiz. You should work through the animations in sequence, but may access them in random order for review purposes. The animations review the important characteristics of light energy, quiz your recall of leaf and plant cell anatomy, demonstrate the general process of photosynthesis, and examine the molecular events that take place in the chloroplast. You are expected to have covered photosynthesis in class and to be familiar with the basic terminology.

This BioCoach activity may cover more information than is required by your instructor, therefore it is important that you review the material that was presented in class and review the relevant animations in the module.
