The Story of a Glucose Molecule
Biology 101
You are a carbon atom. You are having a wonderful life, bonded to your 5 closest friends in a great glucose molecule. But your cell needs you. It requires the energy glucose contains, which means your molecule must go through the process of cellular respiration, in which your molecule is broken into 6 separate carbon dioxide molecules. Sounds noble, but personally devastating.
But, then, miraculously, your carbon dioxide molecule is swept into a plant cell, and, through the process of photosynthesis, you are rejoined into a glucose molecule once again.
This is an opportunity to tell the story of cellular respiration and photosynthesis, creatively, but thoroughly and accurately. Your paper should be no more than 5 pages, space and a half (like this page). You do need to recount all the steps in the process, with emphasis on the energy transformations. The paper will be graded both as an assignment and as up to 25 points extra credit on your next test. Your grade will be based 80% on accuracy and completeness, and 20% on creativity. The papers must be typed (11-12 point font)
