Metabolism - Complex Exercise - Metabolism of Carnivorous Plants


This document contains a complex exercise. Amongst other things, it can a be used in preparation for an exam or as an exam itself. It focuses on carnivorous plants as an application of typical high school biology knowledge on metabolism.

The exercise is tailored to require about 90 min of work when done in "one sitting" and in writing.

It includes the solutions and references to the following competencies:

General Competencies:

- I can purposefully extract information from written sources (reading comprehension).

- I can display similarities and differences of circumstances, objects, organisms, and processes in a verbal (or tabular) manner (compare).

- I can give judgement by myself that is based on facts and logical conclusions (evaluate).

- I can describe diagrams formally.

- I can describe the data depicted in a diagram.

- I can analyze and interpret the data depicted in a diagram.

Competencies on Metabolism:

- I can name and compare examples for anabolic and catabolic processes, and I can define scientific terms related to these processes.

- I can describe the course of an enzyme-catalyzed reaction, and I can explain the influence enzymes have on substrates involved in these reactions.

- I can explain the influence enzymes have on the activation energy required by chemical reactions, and as a result, I can explain the influence enzymes have on the speed of these reactions.

- I can describe the essential steps in substance and energy conversion during photosynthesis.

- I can explain the significance of photosynthesis for life on Earth.

- I can name significant subprocesses of cellular respiration, and I can explain the relation in which these subprocesses stand to each other.

- I can describe how water, carbon dioxide, and oxygen are part of a simplified cycle of photosynthesis and cellular respiration.

- Using specific examples, I can describe and explain the functions of products of anabolic and catabolic processes of an organism in the organism itself and their significance for other organisms.
