Description

The worksheet provides review for introductory biology students on the chemical structure and bonds within biological macromolecules.  Students use a nutritional label to perform simplified math to demonstrate an understanding of the structure of an example of different macromolecules.  A series of questions is presented for each of the four different types of biological macromolecules to illustrate an understanding and review of the structures.
