Virtual Photosynthesis Experiment

Virtual Photosynthesis Experiment

(0)
Power Point Slide Show (ppsx) file for the virtual execution of Elodia photosynthesis experiments. The slide show is interactive to allow for transitions between explanations, setups and reference slides. The simulation emulates colour change of Bromothymol Blue indicator over a duration of 30 hours as indicator of carbon dioxide consumption. Data generated by this simulation is estimated and does not reflect actual values obtained in experiments. Experimental setups comprise variations of temperatures, distances of light source and light intensities (emulated LUX meter measurement). Controls are represented by emulating Bromothymol Blue indicator colours of setups without plant in both light and dark conditions, and with plant in the absence of any light.

Biology: DNA/RNA gel electrophoresis simulation (interactive)

(0)
Interactive power point slide show (ppsx) that simulates the setup, loading and running of an agarose gel for the separation of DNA/RNA fragments and estimation of sizes by comparison to a DNA/RNA ladder with bands of known fragment sizes. Viewers interact with equipment, control transitions, and receive feedback on choice selections. This resource is ideally suited to demonstrate, model, explore or assess Australian VCE Biology Unit 4 content and skills, or similar curricula in other regions.
Biology: Virtual Experiment (Respiration)

Biology: Virtual Experiment (Respiration)

(0)
This resource was designed for Australian VCE Biology Unit 3, AOS 1, outcome 1 requirements for a practical relating to cellular respiration. This is an interactive slide show for virtual measurements of respiration rates at different temperatures. A respirometer is shown with animated movement of a food colour droplet in the glass tube pipette. A thermometer is displayed, and a timer starts on click. Students can take measurements for 3 fixed temperature setups. Students need to read the scales of the pipette and thermometer, and keep records of time points. Total duration of simulation for each temperature set-up is 30 seconds. Students can restart the simulations and move between setups. A matching worksheet scaffolds all science skill applications from planning to data presentation.

Biology Photosynthesis Virtual Experiment Task Sheet

(0)
Assessment or hands-on learning task relevant to year 12 Biology (Australian VCE Unit 3) content knowledge about photosynthesis and factors affecting rates of photosynthesis, as well as key scientific skills including planning and conducting experiments, and data collection, analysis and presentation (types of data, errors, graphing conventions). This task requires use of the virtual photosynthesis experiment available here: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/virtual-photosynthesis-experiment-12460019
