Unit 4: Organic Molecules

Organic Molecules! Who said that there would be Chemistry in Biology 12??!!! Some of you may not enjoy Chemistry, however, a basic understanding of chemistry and in particular, some types of molecules will vastly help you comprehend what is happening within your body. 

You will not be required to draw the structures of carbohydrates, lipids, or proteins. You will be required to recognize their forms (ie. shapes) and describe the roles they play within the human body.

When you click the links below, browse the links along the left side of the screen. Unit 1 in this course focuses on carbs, lipids, and proteins. Nucleic acids will be covered in detail in Unit 4 (that means you don't have to worry about them yet!)
