Reviewer Comments:

This unit contains two PowerPoint presentations – one on photosynthesis and one on cellular respiration, as well as one problem set. These resources would fit best in a high school classroom since the main idea of each topic is only briefly introduced before delving into molecular and structural details of each process. The problem set asks students to analyze situations involving cellular respiration, but an answer key is not included with the lesson.

I like how the powerpoint clearly states which sentence goes with which click on the slides with animation 7-9. I also like emphasizing the connection with quantum physics. This is fairly advanced but doesn't cover everything. It has a few solid slides.
