Friday: Building Lipids, Looking at Next Week

While several classes were able to build lipids yesterday, other classes ran out of time.  As a result, some of you will be building lipids Monday, others will be building proteins on Monday, and everyone will follow up with going through the whole packet!

I KNOW this is a lot of information to process.  These macromolecules are the building blocks of life.  They are what you eat.  They are your source of energy and building blocks of you!

Carbohydrates: subunit is a Single Sugar.  Think: Sugars, Starch, Cellulose
Lipids: subunit usually Fatty Acid.  Think: Cell membranes, cholesterol, steroids, oil, wax!
Proteins: subunit is Amino Acid

READ about macromolecules in your textbook: page 44-48.
