About This Chapter
Who's It For:
Anyone who needs help learning or mastering the energy in cellular respiration material will benefit from the lessons in this chapter. There is no faster or easier way to learn about energy in cellular respiration. Among those who would benefit are:
- Students who have fallen behind in understanding energy in cellular respiration
- Students who struggle with learning disabilities or learning differences, including autism and ADHD
- Students who prefer multiple ways of learning science (visual or auditory)
- Students who have missed class time and need to catch up
- Students who need an efficient way to learn about energy in cellular respiration
- Students who struggle to understand their teachers
- Students who attend schools without extra science learning resources
How It Works:
- Find videos in our course that cover what you need to learn or review.

Students Will Review:
This chapter helps students review the concepts in an energy unit of a standard biology course. Topics covered include:
- Living organisms and the transformation of energy
- Energy transfer in cells
- Structure of mitochondria
- The connection between physical activity and energy-laden molecules
1. Energy and Life: The Transformation of Energy in Living Organisms
While the sun is an excellent source of energy, not all forms of life can utilize the sun's energy directly. This lesson describes how plants transform the sun's energy into potential energy stored in sugar, how living organisms utilize energy in sugar to perform work, and how the relationship between photosynthesis and cellular respiration is necessary for life.
2. Cellular Respiration: Energy Transfer in Cells
Watch this short video to learn the basics about converting organic compounds into ATP, also known as cellular respiration. We'll look at an overview of the process.
3. Mitochondria Structure: Cristae, Matrix and Inner & Outer Membrane
If you want to make it through the day, you're going to need some energy. In this lesson, we'll learn about the organelle that supplies this energy, the mitochondrion, and why this cell structure appreciates the time you took to eat breakfast this morning!
4. How Energy-Containing Molecules Support Physical Activity
Physical activity requires energy. Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the form of energy your body likes to use. In order to keep enjoying your physical activity, your body must continually make ATP. Learn how this is done both with and without oxygen.
5. Cellular Respiration: Biology Lab
Oxygen is essential to life. Without this molecule, we would not be able to complete cellular respiration, the process which creates much of a cell's energy. This lab will explore how we can quantify this process by designing a procedure to measure respiration in germinating seeds.
