Photosynthesis: The Equation of Life


Why did you choose this slide?

I show this slide after students have discussed the significance of each reactant and product in small groups. It engages students to understand the true global significance of the photosynthesis equation.

What are you aiming to convey with it?

The photosynthesis reaction is at the core of solving major global issues, e.g. food security, environment.

How do you think it contributes to student learning?

By integrating the contribution of the photosynthesis equation, students learn how plants regulate the life and wellbeing of other species and the health of the planet.
