Energy Exchanges

BIG IDEA: 
Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, to reproduce and to maintain dynamic homeostasis.
In this unit of study, we will examine how cells (and thus, organisms) utilize and unleash the potential energy trapped within organic molecules.  We will also learn how plants and other producers trap the sun's energy to produce organic compounds that Earth's consumers use daily.  Last, we will explore the relationship between these two processes and how they provide for the energy needs of all organisms on our Earth.
