Photosynthesis Research and Reflection Paper
Find 2 articles on photosynthesis.
-Find a scholarly source (refer the handout on finding credible sources)
-Use a mainstream search engine like Google to find another source
One or both of the articles should include the following information
-definition of photosynthesis
-chemical formula for photosynthesis
-function and definition of chlorophyll, grana, and photophosphorylation
-difference between light dependent and light independent reactions
-function of xylem and phloem in photosynthesis
Write a 2 page reflection paper that answers that meets the following criteria:
-Double spaced
-Use in-text citation when necessary
-Includes an introduction, body, and conclusion and reference page
-Compares both sources (how are they similar or different? Are both credible, why or why not?
Which source was easier to find? Why do you think this is?)
-Explains the entire process of photosynthesis (including the chemical equation)
-Demonstrates knowledge of terms
-Include what you thought of photosynthesis before reading the article and what you have
learned (may use first person in this section)
This is an informational and opinion paper. Blend the two together to explain and reflect on
the process of photosynthesis and demonstrate knowledge of research techniques.
Finding credible sources
A source is generally considered scholarly if it has been subject to peer review or further study.
An article being scholarly does not always mean that the information is credible. Many articles
are submitted to journals and are peer reviewed with information that is speculation or at least
not yet considered fact. It is our job as readers to interpret the credibility of sources always
question information. Below are some guidelines to identifying credible sources and some
websites that make it easier to find scholarly material.
Steps to determine if a source is credible:
1) Think about how reliable you need the information to be. Everyone has different
standards for credibility, and often this depends on how the information is going to be
applied.
a. Is your topic something that has been studied academically?
b. Does it matter if the information refined?
c. If you're writing an academic paper in a university setting, you need to be
especially strict about sources, focusing specifically on scholarly article.
2) Consider the medium with which you are working. Generally, the more that is invested
into the creation and publishing of the material, the more likely you are to find reliable
information. For example, printed material has a higher cost of production than an Internet
blog, which anyone can publish for free.
3) Research the author
a. Where does the author work?
b. If the author is affiliated with a reputable institution or organization, what are
its values and goals? Do they benefit financially by promoting a particular view?
c. What is his or her educational background?
d. What other works has the author published?
e. What experience does the author have? Is s/he an innovator, or a follower and
promoter of the status quo?
f. Has this author been cited as a source by other scholars or experts in the field?
4) Check the date. Find out when the source was published or revised. In some subject areas,
such as the sciences, having current sources is essential
5) Investigate the publisher. If the publisher is a university press, the source is likely to be
scholarly.
6) Determine the intended audience. Scan the preface, table of contents, index, abstract, and
the first few paragraphs of the article or of a few chapters. Is the tone, depth, and breadth
appropriate for your project?
7) Evaluate the source's sources. Citing other reliable sources is a sign of credibility.
8) Identify bias. If the source's author is known to be emotionally or financially connected with
the subject, be aware that the source may not fairly represent all views.
9) Investigate the financial or funding sources for sponsored research. Determine the sources
of funding for the study conducted to get an idea of the potential influences on the study.
Various sources of funding can sway the information presented or the way a study is
conducted in order to align with their own agendas.
List of scholarly search engines:

CFY6Rfgod3qsApw
Citing your sources properly
When using information from a source, it is sometimes best to include exact statements from
the source. Be careful not to use too many as you want the paper to be your own. If you are
taking something word-for-word from a document, surround the statement with quotations
and follow it with an in-text citation of the author’s last name, the page number, and the year
of the source. If you use information from a source that is not an exact quote, follow the
information with an in-text citation including the author’s last name and the year of the source.
Example
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times” (Dickens, pg 1, 1859).
The results of the study indicated that migration patterns of deer where directly
proportionate to temperature (Smith, 2013).
Multiple sentences can be written using information from a source before an in-text citation is
needed. If a quote is used, a citation is needed directly after it.
Scholarly science articles are written in APA format. For the purposes of this class we will use
APA for Works Cited pages. Every source that is used for in-text citation needs to appear in the
Works Cited page
This list provides the information necessary to identify and retrieve each source.
Order: Entries should be arranged in alphabetical order by authors' last names. Sources
without authors are arranged alphabetically by title within the same list.
Authors: Write out the last name and initials for all authors of a particular work. Use an
ampersand (&) instead of the word "and" when listing multiple authors of a single work. e.g.
Smith, J. D., & Jones, M.
Titles: Capitalize only the first word of a title or subtitle, and any proper names that are part
of a title.
Pagination: Use the abbreviation p. or pp. to designate page numbers of articles from
periodicals that do not use volume numbers, especially newspapers. These abbreviations are
also used to designate pages in encyclopedia articles and chapters from edited books.
Indentation*: The first line of the entry is flush with the left margin, and all subsequent lines
are indented (5 to 7 spaces) to form a "hanging indent".
Underlining vs. Italics*: It is appropriate to use italics instead of underlining for titles of books
and journals.
Two additional pieces of information should be included for works accessed online.
Internet Address**: A stable Internet address should be included and should direct the
reader as close as possible to the actual work. If the work has a digital object identifier (DOI),
use this. If there is no DOI or similar handle, use a stable URL. If the URL is not stable, as is often
the case with online newspapers and some subscription-based databases, use the home page
of the site you retrieved the work from.
Date: If the work is a finalized version published and dated, as in the case of a journal article,
the date within the main body of the citation is enough. However, if the work is not dated
and/or is subject to change, as in the case of an online encyclopedia article, include the date
that you retrieved the information.

Flower Dissection Lab
Background Information:
Every flower consists of a set of adaptations that help to ensure successful reproduction. For
example, flowers often have bright colors, attractive shapes, and pleasing aromas. These traits
help them attract insects and other animals that will carry pollen grains from flower to flower.
Pollination also occurs by means other than animals carrying the pollen. For some flowering
plants, the wind plays an important role in transferring pollen from plant to plant.
The seed-bearing plants that produce flowers are angiosperms. The flower produces the
seeds, each of which contains a new plant embryo. The parts of the flower are usually found in
whorls, or rings. Petals are one of the sets of whorls. They attract pollinators. Sepals lie outside
the petals. They protect the bud.
The reproductive organs, the stamens and pistils, lie inside the petals. A stamen is a male
reproductive part. It consists of an anther that is held up by a filament. The anther produces
pollen grains. A pistil is a female reproductive part. Its top is called the stigma. It is sticky to
ensure that when pollen grains land on it, they stick to it. The middle supporting structure is the
style, and the large base is the ovary, where the eggs are produced
(Pre-lab questions)
