  1. What is cellular respiration?
    1. Overview of cellular respiration
    2. A pictorial outline
  2. Why do organisms utilize cellular respiration?
    1. The ultimate goal
    2. Cell Respiration and muscle metabolism
  3. Where does cellular respiration occur in an organism?

  4. When does cellular respiration occur?

  5. How does this process occur?
    1. Cellular respiration simulation
    2. Glycolysis
