Conversion of Urea Lab

Posted on Nov 20, 2015 in biochemistry, Biology, Carbon and Nitrogen Cycles

Targets: Understand the role of urease in urea decomposition reaction, the role of urea decomposition in cycling nitrogen and how the positive tests for conversion work. Determine variables and control experiments. Question, predict, design, investigate, collect data, interpret, conclude, analyze, evaluate, apply, and extend investigations. Write scientifically. How: Design a controlled experiment to demonstrate enzymatic […]

biochemistry objectives

Posted on Nov 19, 2015 in biochemistry, Biology

Target: To give students clear expectations of what is on the Biochemistry Test. How:  Complete the Biochemistry Test Objectives Review outside of class.  Students listen to answers in class and make sure that they have the correct answers.  Students then study the correct answers for comprehension, not memorization.   biochemistry test review
