Learners analyse the structure and regulation of biochemical pathways and investigate factors that affect the rate in of photosynthesis.
Students complete an investigation that could also be used for Unit 4: AOS 3- Scientific Inquiry.
- Living algae and yeast can be trapped in alginate where they continue to carry out their life processes in a controlled, uniform environment. Students will investigate how temperature and light availability affects photosynthesis in algal balls, sharing and discussing their results.
VCE Biology Unit 3 – AOS 1: Outcome 2: Photosynthesis as an example of biochemical pathways
- the factors that affect the rate of photosynthesis: light availability and temperature
- inputs, outputs and locations of the light dependent and light independent stages of photosynthesis in C3 plants
