Teacher notes
Answers to summary questions
1 a) oxygen; glucose; energy; respiration; dioxide; water.
b) glucose + oxygen energy + carbon dioxide + water.
c) It provides the energy needed for synthesis reactions, muscle contraction
and maintaining body temperature.
d) The mitochondria are organelles that are the site of the reactions involved
in aerobic respiration. They have a large internal surface area and many
2 Marks awarded for relevant scientific points and clear expression.
Teaching notes
The questions are designed to crystallise knowledge and are not designed to be
exam style. This format is particularly useful for students who have difficulty
answering questions without some kind of writing frame.

d) · Neutralises the acid (added to the food in the stomach).
· Provides neutral/alkaline conditions for enzymes to
function/optimum pH for enzymes.
· Emulsifies fats/breaks up fats into small droplets.
· Increases the surface area of fats (so that enzymes can work
on them more effectively). Allow any accurate description of
emulsification.…read more
