BIO 101 Catabolic Pathways and Production of ATP Discussion


The idea is to avoid reading a science textbook like a novel. Instead,

study and write notes in this form by making 2 outlines and then a more

detailed summary, something like this:

1. Write down the chapter title and the concept titles


Go through the chapter again writing the chapter title and concept

titles but this time within each concept, write down all of the headings

and subheadings as well.

3. Go through the chapter a third time,

but this time, do an in-depth study of all the paragraphs and figures

within each concept. As you read a paragraph, ask yourself questions

about what you are reading and then try to answer the questions.

Your notes the 3rd time around make look something like this:

Chapter Title
Concept 14.1 Title
First subheading
1st paragraph summary with questions and answers
2nd paragraph summary with questions and answers
Rough sketch of a figure with the question: “What is this figure about?” Your answer to your question.
3rd paragraph summary with questions and answers
