Give a personal example of the bystander effect and who was Kitty Genovese?
As I was driving along the road I saw a bunch of construction workers sitting around watching one guy dig a hole. Kitty Genovese was an American woman who was stabbed to death outside her apartment building in Kew Gardens, a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Queens, on March 13, 1964. Her cries for help were heard by multiple people in the surrounding area and yet no one called the police. Her case was one of the first of its kind and led to the term bystander effect in psychology.
Explain the process of aerobic cellular respiration.
Depending on the students level he/she should begin with the breakdown of glucose via glycolysis (elaborating as necessary depending on age) to yield 2 molecules of pyruvate. They then should explain the process of transporting these two molecules of pyruvates into the mitochondrial matrix where they undergo the Krebs cycle. Again under college level the student would be fine just mentioning Krebs and the location however past highschool level and in AP/ IB students would need to include all steps of the Krebs reaction. In any case Students should be able to name all biproducts (ATP, FADH2, NADH) and depinging on grade perhaps the exact number (2, 2, 10 respectively). The student should then be able to explain in sufficient detail the details of the electron transport chain including the role of FADH2 and NADH as electron carriers, carrier protiens, H+ gradient, ATP synthase, ect ultimately yielding 36-38 atp per glucose molecule and leaving CO2 and H2O as biproducts.
A new school year is beginning in the college town of Seminolia brining with it a massive influx of college students. Using a supply and demand curves in Illustrate the effect of this sudden influx of students has on: (1) The price of student housing (2) The price of textbooks (3) average salary for unskilled labor. Indicate shifts in either supply or demand with arrows and use these shifts to draw the new supply or demand curves. Explain your reasoning.
The student should sketch 3 graphs labeling each X-axis with price and each Y-axis with quantity demanded. The first should show a horizontal shift to the right on the demand curve giving an overall higher market equilibrium price for student housing. The second should show more or less the same shift only with textbook prices. The last graph is open to interpretation if the student decides that the influx of students would constitute a large increase in the supply of unskilled labor with a relatively unchanged demand then he/she should denote a corresponding decrease in price. However If the student theorizes that while the influx of students represents an increased supply of unskilled labor they also represent an increased demand for unskilled labor via businesses needing to hire them to serve their fellow students the student should show an increase in both supply and demand indicating an increase in salary.
