Students start with images of living organisms, from bacteria to plants and animals. They "zoom" into cells and tissues to discover that they are made of different macromolecules. Students observe that these macromolecules are polymers. They zoom into polymers to find that some are made from almost identical monomers, while others, such as proteins, are made from a set of different monomers. They discover that all monomers making up biological macromolecules are composed of just a few types of chemical elements: C, H, O, N, P and S. Students will be able to:Identify typical molecular building blocks (monomers) that form biological macromolecules; determine the types of atoms that make up most biopolymers; reason about the uniformity and diversity at the atomic level of life's molecular building blocks.
