Making ATP: Core content concept maps

In tomorrow’s class we’ll be reviewing our Making ATP unit (enzymes, cell respiration, photosynthesis and the greenhouse effect) with a couple of concept mapping activities. The first, cell respiration core, is made using the really useful free concept mapping tool from IHMC CMap tools. This is a freeware package for most computing platforms – very easy to use and might be a help in your revision!

In the second activity, build your own concept map making as many annotated connections between concepts as you can. Surrounding this, add and annotate the relevant graphs and diagrams.

  1. Thanks for this… It looks like it will be a great review for my HL’s as we get closer to exams. Hadn’t seen that software before, either…

    • Thanks Angela. CMap tools is a great resource – concept maps go a step further than mind maps by making us think of how the ideas are connected.
