Lesson Plan: Oxidative Phosphorylation Biology

This lesson plan includes the objectives and prerequisites of the lesson teaching students how to describe the process of oxidative phosphorylation and recall the products formed.


Students will be able to

  • describe the movement of electrons through the electron transport chain and the active transport of hydrogen ions from the matrix to the intermembrane space,
  • state the products of oxidative phosphorylation as being water and ATP,
  • outline the role of NADH, FADH2, and the electron carriers in the electron transport chain,
  • define oxygen as the final electron acceptor in the electron transport chain,
  • describe the chemiosmotic theory of ATP production in terms of the movement of hydrogen ions through ATP synthase.


Students should already be familiar with

  • the basic equation for respiration,
  • the reactions of glycolysis,
  • the link reaction,
  • the reactions of the Krebs cycle.
