Biological Polymers What are they? Definition Biological Polymers are large molecules formed by many monomers joined together. Polymers in us Carbohydrates: Made by joining together monosaccharides (single sugars). Fats: Made by joining fatty acids to glycerol. Proteins: Made by joining amino acids together. AOI HEALTH AND SOCIAL EDUCATION: Health and social education is basically how one can make healthy decisions. It focuses on how we can mentally and physically develop. How the AOI relates to Polymers Biological polymers are all about healthy diets. This unit shows how each healthy polymer is formed and what it uses to be formed. It relates to the AOI because it talks about the nutrition we take in everyday. Tells us how each polymer affects our body. AOI and Biological Polymers The AOI affects the unit of Biological Polymers. This is because it makes us find out which polymers are more useful for us at this age and how each is useful in every way. The AOI helps us make different decisions about how we can balance these polymers in out diets.
