In Biology, one of the fundamental concepts is understanding photosynthesis and how plants use the biochemical processes to generate energy for cell production and survival. Follow along as Craig Beals walks you through the steps of photosynthesis.

Click the video above or the link to watch "ATP and ADP: Chemical Energy for Cells" on YouTube:

ATP is one of the most important compounds inside a cell because it is the energy transport molecule. ATP (Adenosine TriPhosphate) is considered a transporter of energy because when one of the phosphate groups is broken off, turning it into Adenosine DiPhosphate (the Tri means 3 phosphate groups, the Di mea...

The Calvin Cycle is the last cycle of photosynthesis where the energy made in the chloroplasts (ATP and NADPH) is used to build and break apart and rebuild complex carbon molecules. The breaking apart and rebuilding, in a new configuration, results in the production of glucose in a plant cell. This glucose can be used within the plant to make cellulose fibers, starch, and many other necessities for growth and life. Watch the v...

Cellular Respiration is one of the most important concepts in understanding Biology because it is what happens inside all of the cells of the human body and provides energy to keep our bodies alive. Watch the video to learn how Cellular Respiration works.
