Endothermic and Exothermic Reactions Lab

Exothermic or Endothermic? Background Information and Theory: Bond Energy and the Types of Reactions Endothermic and Exothermic: During a chemical reaction, energy is either transferred to or from its surroundings. Reactions which involve heat energy being released into the surrounding environment are called exothermic reactions. By contrast, endothermic reactions draw heat energy from their surroundings. This […]

Cellular Respiration

Cellular Respiration

The phrase “cellular respiration” can make even the most experienced Biology teacher shudder. When it comes to teaching this all-important topic, there is one question that every Biology teacher asks themselves – “how can I make aerobic respiration and anaerobic respiration enjoyable, while still making sure that students understand these tricky processes?” In short, animations, […]
