Cellular Respiration Syllabus (General Biology): Chapter 9

Core Standard 2: Cellular Structure - Describe features that are common to all cells and contrast those with special features allowing cells to perform specific functions.

B.2.3 Explain that most cells contain mitochondria (the key sites of cellular respiration), where stored chemical energy is converted into useable energy for the cell. Explain that some cells, including many plant cells, contain chloroplasts (the key sites of photosynthesis) where the energy of light is captured for use in chemical work.

Core Standard 3: Matter Cycles and Energy Transfer - Describe how the sun’s energy is captured and used to construct sugar molecules that can be used as a form of energy or serve as building blocks of organic molecules. (B.3.1, B.3.2, B.3.3)

B.3.1 Describe how some organisms capture the sun’s energy through photosynthesis by converting carbon dioxide and water into high-energy compounds and releasing oxygen.

B.3.2 Describe how organisms can combine/recombine elements contained in sugar molecules into a variety of essential compounds by utilizing the energy from cellular respiration.

B.3.3 Recognize and describe that metabolism consists of all of the biochemical reactions that occur inside cells, which include the production, modification, transport, and exchange of materials that are required for the maintenance of life
