Photosynthesis is a process by which plants synthesize glucose and oxygen in presence of sunlight through light dependent reactions by utilization of sunlight, water to synthesize oxygen, ATP and NADPH and light-independent reactions to synthesize carbon dioxide and carbohydrates. Cellular respiration is a metabolic pathway that breaks down glucose through glycolysis, pyruvate oxidation, citric acid / Krebs cycle and oxidative phosphorylation. Primary producers produce energy and consumers derive energy from primary producers. Primary productivity is the accumulation of energy in form of biomass. Integrating biological science and mathematics helps to understand how differential regulation of factors impacting metabolic pathways and processes impact primary productivity.

Description

Through this module instructors will be able to teach students about photosynthesis, cellular respiration and primary productivity. Also, will be able to engage students in simulation-based learning to develop hypothesis and test hypothesis by collecting, organizing, visualizing and analysing data using statistical tools and Google Sheet/ MS Excel sheet. Instructors will be able to offer self-documentation tools to students for example google doc, Padlet, google sheet and google power point to help in data analysis and aesthetic presentation. Students will be engaged in discussions, predictions, observations, calculations and presentations.
