A collection of animations on how to measure enzyme kinetics and use the Michaelis Menton equation.
Type of Material:
In class demonstration or out of class review.
Shockwave and Quicktime.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
No stated learning goals on the site but it is clear that the animations intend to help viewers understand enzyme kinetics.
Target Student Population:
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Knowledge of enzymes, substrates and products
A mathematical background with at least College Algebra or better
Basic biochemistry or cell biology
Well designed, thorough and complete explanation of enzyme kinetics
Animation breaks the process down into discrete steps-Clear and simple presentation of concepts
Videos were a little small. It would be nice to be able to enlarge
Not particularly interactive, more of a tutorial that students watch
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Could design assignments based on the tutorial
Written in an easy to read format with good graphics that clearly illustrate the process
Derives equations along with diagrams and explanations of the process
Easily steps a student through the information needed to understand Vmax, Km, and Initial Velocity
No practice problems or assignments based on the activity
A brief introduction to math behind the calculation of Vmax, Km and Initial Velocity would help some students
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Very simple format that is easy to navigate
Table of contents along the side
Scroll bar at the bottom of each animation allows the student to control the pace
