Energy, Matter, and Organization: Relating Nutrition & Chronic Disease

After the nice long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, we returned to our study of energy, matter, and organization by connecting our previous work deducing the formula of cellular respiration with the study of nutrition.  Students were tasked with completing the Relating Nutrition & Chronic Disease.  They were also encouraged to use the USDA’s National Nutrient Database to look up the nutrient content of any ingredients not listed in the worksheet packet.
