- Biology: 3 [Photosynthesis; Light-Dependent Reactions; The Calvin Cycle] = This has been a tough topic for me to cover. It’s hard to get it at first. But you’ll get it just fine as long as you insist on understanding it. Super interesting though. I remember learning in elementary school that plants produce oxygen for us to breathe. However, I had never understood if we gave plants something back. Today I can answer: yes, we do give them carbon dioxide. They use carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O) to produce carbohydrates. As a byproduct, they release oxygen (O2).
- Human Physiology: 2 [Acid-Base Balance] = The last videos of the course are watched. Now I need to review everything and do the final exam. That’s gonna be fun (being ironic)
