  • Learning Objectives

    Content Objectives

    • Understand how the process of cellular respiration converts glucose into usable energy, carbon dioxide, and water.
    • Explain why some organisms do fermentation instead of cellular respiration, even though this produces less usable energy

    Skill Objectives

    • Identify stages in cellular respiration where ATP is used and where it is produced
    • Calculate net ATP produced from a single glucose molecule
    • Make predictions about the rate of fermentation under different conditions
