Solution Preview

Photosynthesis is the process of converting light energy to chemical energy and storing it in the bonds of sugar by plants and some bacteria. This process occurs in plants and some algae (Kingdom Protista). Plants need only light energy, CO2, and H2O to make sugar.

When there are dense ...

Solution Summary

The photosynthesis and dense coverings are examined. What happens to carbon dioxide and oxygen levels are determined.

Basic function of a cell

This is a presentation on histology, the study of the microscopic anatomy of cells and tissues. You must make at least 15 slides that provide your audience with information on the histology of two tissues, epithelium and connective tissue. Your slides should include the following sections:

Discuss the importance of a cell and why it is considered the basic functional unit of life
Define the function, general structure, and give examples of epithelial tissue: simple vs. stratified; squamous, cuboidal, columnar, and pseudostratified columnar
Define the function, general structure, and give examples of connective tissue: CT proper, loose and dense; cartilage (three types); bone (two types); and blood (RBCs, WBCs, and platelets)
Label images of histological slides of the skin, including the regions (epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis) and the epithelial and CT tissue types in each region.
I recommend you use the following resource located on our class bookshelf in e-brary: Comparative Veterinary Histology with Clinical Correlates to get started.
Your SLP's for this course will be a series of PowerPoint presentations. Each presentation will include speaker notes. Please be mindful of formatting and scholarly content as outlined below:


The power point presentation should be attractive, balanced and flow logically.

The following site will help you with your PowerPoint presentation:


Scholarly Content

Since the presentation will include information that you are obtaining from other areas, you will need to include appropriate references. References used in the power point presentation should be cited using APA format, and a comprehensive reference list should appear on the final slide(s). PLEASE NOTE: Wikipedia is not considered scholarly.

Speaker notes

What are speaker notes?

As you recall, the PowerPoint slides should only give your audience some "key" points about the topic. You should not try to "cram" your slides full of information as this makes your slides appear sloppy and too "busy". Speaker notes can help the presenter remember everything that he or she wants to say about a particular slide.

Keep in mind- speaker notes are REQUIRED---they serve as the written portion of your SLP. The slides are one part of your SLP, but the speaker notes show you have taken the wide range of materials presented in each module and organized them into a logical, sequential presentation.

How do I make speaker notes?

Follow these simple steps to add speaker notes to your PowerPoint presentation:

Open your PowerPoint presentation
Go to the "View" menu and select the "Notes" page.
The notes page will be small, so you will have to go to the "View" menu again and select "Zoom" in order to make them bigger. Select the percentage of zoom that you want (the higher the percentage, the larger the page will become).
Click inside the notes page and begin typing your speaker notes.
Continue doing this on each slide until your speaker notes are written.
Once you have finished writing your speaker notes, save your presentation
