Ch 24: Glencoe Physical Science Chapter 24: Organic Compounds

About This Chapter

The Organic Compounds chapter of this Glencoe Physical Science Companion Course helps students learn the essential physical science lessons of organic compounds. Each of these simple and fun video lessons is about five minutes long and is sequenced to align with the Organic Compounds textbook chapter.

How It Works:

  • Identify the lessons in Glencoe Physical Science's Organic Compounds chapter with which you need help.
  • Find the corresponding video lessons within this companion course chapter.
  • Watch fun videos that cover the organic compounds topics you need to learn or review.
  • Complete the quizzes to test your understanding.
  • If you need additional help, rewatch the videos until you've mastered the material or submit a question for one of our instructors.

Students will learn:

  • Saturated and unsaturated molecules
  • Types of hydrocarbons
  • Properties of petroleum
  • Monomers and polymers
  • Elements of biological molecules
  • Structure and function of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids

Organic Molecules: Alkanes, Alkenes, Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Isomers

1. Organic Molecules: Alkanes, Alkenes, Aromatic Hydrocarbons and Isomers

Learn more about carbon and hydrogen and see how these atoms come together to form distinct molecules. Also, study the difference between saturated and unsaturated molecules.

What is Hydrocarbon? - Definition, Formula & Compounds

2. What is Hydrocarbon? - Definition, Formula & Compounds

Hydrocarbons are organic compounds that are made of only hydrogen and carbon atoms. They are found in many places, including crude oil and natural gas. Learn the different forms of these simple, yet varied, organic compounds.

Introduction to Organic Molecules II: Monomers and Polymers

3. Introduction to Organic Molecules II: Monomers and Polymers

From everyday man-made items like milk jugs and styrofoam to natural proteins and plant materials, the world is full of polymers! Check out this lesson to learn how polymers are constructed on a molecular level.

Major Elements in Biological Molecules: Proteins, Nucleic Acids, Carbohydrates & Lipids

4. Major Elements in Biological Molecules: Proteins, Nucleic Acids, Carbohydrates & Lipids

Bacterial cells have complex macromolecules built from simple molecules. In this lesson, we will look at the major elements in the building blocks of proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids.

Proteins I: Structure and Function

5. Proteins I: Structure and Function

We need our proteins, not just as a major food group but for the many useful roles that they play in our bodies. In our introductory lesson to proteins, you'll learn about the many functions we rely on them to perform.

Structure and Function of Carbohydrates

6. Structure and Function of Carbohydrates

Carbohydrates are found in many foods that we eat and may be found as sugars, starches, or fiber. Learn more about these three distinct types of carbohydrates, and how they are distinguished through their chemical structures in this lesson.

Structure and Function of Lipids

7. Structure and Function of Lipids

Molecules called lipids have long hydrocarbon chains that determine the way they act. They can be fats, oils, or hormones, and even exist in our cell membranes. Learn more about the chemical structure and biological function of various lipids in this lesson.
