Virginia’s CTE Resource Center

Explain the metabolic energy systems.


Explanation should include how the body produces energy for exercise using carbohydrates, fats and proteins and the difference between aerobic and anaerobic metabolic pathways.

Process/Skill Questions

  • What are the energy systems of the body?
  • How does energy become available as work demands on the body change?
  • What are exercise, metabolism, and bioenergetics?
  • What is an aerobic system of obtaining energy?
  • What is VO2 max? How is VO2 max measured?
  • What is an anaerobic system of obtaining energy?
  • What is are glycolysis and adenosine triphosphate-phosphocreatine (ATP-PCR) system? How do glycolysis and the ATP-PCR system work?

Related Standards of Learning



The student will read, interpret, analyze, and evaluate a variety of nonfiction texts.
  1. Use critical thinking to generate and respond logically to literal, inferential, and evaluative questions about the text(s).
  2. Identify and synthesize resources to make decisions, complete tasks, and solve specific problems.
  3. Analyze multiple texts addressing the same topic to determine how authors reach similar or different conclusions.
  4. Recognize and analyze use of ambiguity, contradiction, paradox, irony, overstatement, and understatement in text.
  5. Analyze false premises claims, counterclaims, and other evidence in persuasive writing.



The student will investigate and understand life functions of Archaea, Bacteria, and Eukarya. Key concepts include
  1. comparison of their metabolic activities;
  2. maintenance of homeostasis;
  3. how the structures and functions vary among and within the Eukarya kingdoms of protists, fungi, plants, and animals, including humans;
  4. human health issues, human anatomy, and body systems;
  5. how viruses compare with organisms; and
  6. evidence supporting the germ theory of infectious disease.
