Reflection: Performance Tasks Modeling Cellular Respiration (Part 2/2) - Section 5: Putting It All Together: How Did It Compare?


Students have determine the rate of cellular respiration in plants.  Using protocols with which they are already familiar, students design an experiment to test the rate of cellular respiration in either a fungi or a protist. Most students can design a controlled experiment.  However, many students have difficulty determining an appropriate method to measure the results of the experiment.  By providing students with several appropriate protocols, they can determine which to use to ensure they can collecting the type of data that will allow them to answer their question.  In this teaching reflection, I explain my rationale for ensuring success in student experimental designs.

Modeling Cellular Respiration (Part 2/2)

Unit 8: Cellular Respiration
Lesson 4 of 4

Objective: Students will design their own experiment to compare the respiration rates of an organism of their own choosing with germinating seeds.

Big Idea: Every living thing needs cellular respiration...I mean, everything.
