When you click Submit (at the bottom of this web page) it will save your work on the server for me. If you get a "proxy error" hit -refresh- until you get a "Thanks"

You might want to actually write your answers in Word (so you can spell check them) and then cut-and-paste into the boxes. That way, if the computer misplaces your work you can just re-paste the answers.

Since we may work on this over more than one day, I will keep track of what you have done. Feel free to click submit as you work to save your work to the server. 


TAB OR USE THE MOUSE Between the fields....

Answer the questions as best you can. The boxes will expand as you type if you need more space. (Don't worry if it is a one word answer. The box size is standard.)

Since you will be working in groups, put all the names of the people in the group in the box. The ideal group size is 2. As an exception I will allow groups of 3. No groups of 4 or 5. If you work as a group of 3 I expect better answers. Group sizes above 3 will be penalized in the grading.

You can work on this from home once you have signed up for Successnet.

Open the Explore Life CD in a separate window  (If you need help with that ask.)

If you have already signed up for SuccessNet, you can access the assignment that way, and also work from home (or library).

While there are questions on the CD, they provide answers, so I can't grade their questions. You will get a grade for the answers on this form!

Question 7:  How many ATPs were made in glycolysis? (Specifically, how many were made gross? how many were made net?)

Question 8: How many ATPs were made in the Krebs cycle?

Question 9: How many ATPs were made in the electron transport chain/chemiosmosis?

Question 10: Where does glycolysis take place?

Remember, the boxes will expand as you type if you need more space.

Question 11: Where do the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain take place?

Question 12: What ion is concentrated in the intermembrane space?

Question 13:  Where in the cell does fermentation take place?

Question 14:  What is the fermentation end product in a muscle cell? In a yeast cell?

Question 15:  What molecule transfers energy to the electron transport chain?

Remember, the boxes will expand as you type if you need more space.

Question 16: How many ATPs (total) are made, in the presence of oxygen, for each glucose molecule?
