					Enzyme Substrate Complex Model Project:

There will two parts to this project. The first will consist of the student preparing a
model of an enzyme substrate complex. Each component of the model must be identified.
The second portion of the project will be an explanation of the functions of enzymes.
Each component will be graded separately.

The following is a grading rubric for the model portion of the project.

Model:
Model is sturdy and 3-dimensional…………………………………………………10 points
Model must be able to stand alone…………………………………………………10 points
All components of the model must be identified and labeled (enzyme, substrate, active
site)…………………………………………………………………………………………10 points
All components of the model must be an accurate representation………….10 points
Model must represent induced fit binding of enzyme and substrate……….10 points



The informational portion of the project will focus on the following questions. Each
question should be answered thoroughly. Each question will be worth 10 points.
The informational portion should be typed in 12 font, single spaced and 1” margins.
Students do not need to include a separate cover sheet but class name, teacher name,
student name, class period and date should be included.

Enzyme Model Assessment Reflection Questions:
1. Why are enzymes necessary in biological processes?
2. How does the structure of an enzyme affect its function?
3. Explain the induced fit of an enzyme reaction including what happens to the
substrate after the reaction has taken place.
4. Is a catalyst a product, reactant, or neither? Explain your answer.
5. Explain how an environmental change in pH or temperature alter the effectiveness
of an enzyme?
