This animation shows how the enzyme complexes of the electron transport chain harvest energy from cofactor molecules to pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane and establish a chemical gradient. It is the second of three animations about cellular respiration.
This animation shows the reactions of the citric acid cycle, which splits off carbon atoms and generates energy-rich reduced forms of cofactor molecules. It is the first of three animations about cellular respiration.
The COVID-19 pandemic has spotlighted the importance of having a scientifically literate public. In this article, Pennsylvania educator Bob Cooper unpacks how to utilize BioInteractive's suite of infectious disease resources to teach students scientific literacy.
It is rare for a single phenomenon to span a large range of concepts. In this Educator Voices article, professor Holly Basta explains how to utilize our sickle cell resources to teach a variety of topics including the central dogma, gene therapy, Mendelian genetics, and evolution
In order to develop complex scientific explanations, students need to have many opportunities to grapple with a concept. In this Educator Voices article, hear how Amy Fassler uses a sequence of resources in a process called “curriculum spiraling.”
Today’s world is full of pessimism and cynicism, and our students are bombarded with discouraging messages about the future of the planet. Is there any antidote to such poison? In this message from BioInteractive, hear from Vice President for Science Education Sean B.
In this blog post, hear from Maryland educator Laura Dinerman about how she uses our mass extinctions resources to consider how the KT extinction connects with global species declines we’re experiencing today.
This film explores the species-area relationship, a general ecological rule that describes how the number of species in a habitat changes with area, and shows how it has been applied to the conservation of protected areas.
Interested in using our biogeography resources to help your students reason from evidence? In this blog post from California educator Nikki Chambers, see how she uses our suite of ‘Wallace Line’ activities to have her students construct explanations.
