In the third unit, we will be taking a look at two important Biochemical Reactions:
1. Photosynthesis
2. Respiration

We'll begin with photosynthesis. In order to better understand the process we must first take a look at the structure of a leaf. Below is the section of notes, along with the blank diagram.

Once you understand the leaf structure it's time to take a look at the actual process of photosynthesis.
Begin by reading pgs 200-207 in your book.

Here are the completed notes for the photosynthesis unit:

Below is the diagram and worksheet for the photosynthesis section:
