Description: In this activity, students will: (1) Label a diagram of the digestive system with major parts; (2) define digestion, both mechanical and chemical, and indicate where these types occur; (3)define operationally acid, base and indicator; (4) construct graph depicting the effects of pH on enzyme activity and comparison of amylases from different sources (pills vs. natural); (5) describe operationally how an enzyme works and why it is needed in the digestive process; (6) locate and identify the components of digestive enzymes commonly sold; (7) identify enzymes by looking at names of ingredients (-ase rule); (8)compare the structure of the same enzyme from different sources using computer modeling programs; and (9)identify sources as either objective or biased and provide a rationale for the decision.
