[...]: literally, 'light'-'putting things together', or 'putting-things-together with light'. (plants use light to put carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen atoms together to make triose-3-phosphate, which is then converted into glucose) photo-synthesis: literally, 'light'-'putting things together', or 'putting-things-together with light'.

Highschool-level biology texts are obsessed with glucose. They say things like: 'Organisms convert most foods into glucose'. In reality, carbohydrates are generally converted to glucose, while [-s] and [-s] rarely are Highschool-level biology texts are obsessed with glucose.

'Respiration' is a $10 word for '[-ing]', but in biology we use this word to refer to getting energy from food using OXYGEN... it's in the air we breathe... see the connection?

Cellular respiration breaks down glucose into usable energy.... but not just glucose! Fats, alcohols, and some other compounds too. (see how they're just crazy obsessed with [...]!?)

Cellular respiration creates a high-energy molecule that can power all the little protein 'machines' inside a cell... this molecule is called adenosine triphosphate ([...]). Cellular respiration creates a high-energy molecule that can power all the little protein 'machines' inside a cell... this molecule is called adenosine triphosphate (ATP).
All the little [...] 'machines' inside cells run off of a special 'battery' called ATP. All the little protein 'machines' inside cells run off of a special 'battery' called ATP.
Adenosine triphosphate (ATP) is the battery that powers all the tiny protein 'machines' inside of cells, but it's not very [...], so instead of storing lots of ATP, living things store energy as carbohydrates (plants & fungi) or fats (animals).

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
