This is what you're made of crew! The more you get to understand how your cell's work, the more awesome you realize you really are! You are made of trillions of these and they work perfectly together, each cell type with their own tasks. How crazy is that?

MAKING ATP - ATP Synthase Animation. This is one cool and helpful animation, although we aren't up to this subject yet. The link below shows how H+ (protons) flow through an enzyme in the mitochondrial membrane to attach a phosphate group to Adenosine Diphosphate to make Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). ATP is then available to supply energy throughout the cell to start other chemical reactions. The energy is released when  that phosphate group is broken off again. The process actually starts with the break down of glucose. ATP is like a rechargeable battery, with mitochondria being the charger using glucose bonds as the initial power source.

GRADING POLICY

Homework or collected class work: Usually 5 points each (half points available) see rubric for grading criteria (1 day late = (-20%), not accepted after one day late).

Quizzes: approximately 10 - 20 points each

Exams: 40 - 60 points each

Essays and projects: 10 - 50 points each

 

The total points possible for each marking period will vary. To determine your letter grade on an assignment or at any point in the marking period, divide your accumulated points by your possible points to date and multiply by 100. As a science department policy, no extra credit is available.
