Comparison of photosynthesis and cellular respiration and fermentation
Your assignment consists of reading chapters 7 (Cellular respiration and fermentation)
and chapter 8 (Photosynthesis) in a way that is detailed enough to allow you to compare
and contrast the two cellular processes. In addition, you are required to put a concept
map that integrates the two cellular processes in a very comprehensive manner such
that it is clear what each process needs to occur, where it occurs, and what it produces.
The report should be 2 pages long excluding concept maps and references, which
should include a total of 5 that can be either research articles or textbooks. Websites
are not considered references and should not be included in the reference list. The
report should have the following format:
Title: Should be descriptive of what is written in your report (0.5
Introduction: should be 0.5 page long, and should give background information about
cellular respiration and photosynthesis (1 point).
Discussion: should be 1 page long, and should present your understanding of cellular
respiration (2 points) and photosynthesis (2 points).
Conclusion: should be 0.5 of a page, you should provide your personal concluding
remarks and thoughts (1 point).
Concept mapping: should be 0.5 page long for cellular respiration (1.5 points), and
0.5 page long for photosynthesis (1.5 points).
References: Should include 5 (0.5 point).
The format should follow traditional guidelines for writing a scientific report.
