Carbon. The cycle.


Aint carbon great?! One of the last topics we studied was the carbon cycle. While you guys were on holidays, I’ve been working hard, and found this Scope episode that you might find useful.  It didn’t seem to want to be embedded, so you will have to click on the links below to view it. It is in 3 parts – view all 3 or just one.  The first one gives a nice overview and the others have some interesting stories.

And another carbon cycle diagram, just in case you haven’t seen enough yet….

Your Key Idea is that

“Photosynthesis and respiration are important processes in the cycles of carbon and oxygen.”

You should be able to

“describe and write equations for the processes of photosynthesis and aerobic respiration involving glucose.”
