  • What does each molecule have in common?
  • What makes them different?

The essential question for unit 6 is What does the structure of a molecule reveal about its function within a cell?

Life is a chemical process. A vast series of interconnected chemical reactions define life at a molecular level. Every heartbeat, every characteristic of living things, and every process of life has a basis in chemistry – the marvelous interaction of matter and energy. From small molecules, chemical reactions produce all the complex molecules necessary for life organisms.
