Midterm 1 Study Guide
General Notes to studying:
At the end of each lecture are summary slides. These slides indicate what is important in the lecture.
Note: study guide posted on Monday, August 11th and represents material covered through Tuesday’s lecture #5. Exam will cover material through Thursday, August 14th lecture #6. Summary slides at end of Thursday’s lecture will provide study guide for that lecture.
Lecture 1:
How do the general principles of chemistry and physics operate in relationship to the biomolecules, chemical reactions, and physiologic functions performed by the chemical reactions?
Atoms and Bonding:
What are the different types of bonding, how are electrons involved, and what are their relative strengths? Biomolecules:
Be able to characterize each of the three biomolecules (protein, carbohydrates, lipids):

What are the building blocks of each (e.g. amino acids, glucose, triglycerides – fatty acids) 

What types of bonds characterize each?

What is the nomenclature (simple to complex)?

What happens when biomolecules become more complex: o Bonding (name the characteristic bonding for each biomolecule)


What do they become when more complex?


What is the significance of the complexity?

Lecture 2:
What are the cellular organelles and how do they function? Organelles:
Be able to name and understand the function of each cellular organelle.

What main function does each organelle have? o What process occurs at each organelle?

Cell Respiration:
What is the terminology used to describe the different types of synthesis and breakdown reactions?
What are the stages of cellular respiration?

What are the different kinds of respiration? o What types of respiration involve oxygen, what types do not?
