Mathematicians analyze the relationships between surface area and volume. They conduct Internet research, conduct various experiments, record the data in a spreadsheet, and graph the results and compare the rate of increase of surface area to the rate of increase of volume.
High schoolers plot particle sizes of common airborne materials on a log scale. They read an article on particle size and its relationship to the ability to pass through the lungs, into the bloodstream, and eventually into the cells of the body. It is a terrific lesson for strengthening literacy as well as for increasing awareness of human impact on the environment. Note that the link to the article itself does not work, but it can be accessed through the National Center for Biotechnology Information or with a simple Internet search for the title.
Your students will love this PowerPoint! Great visuals will support understanding of membrane proteins, cell membranes, active transport, and diffusion. There are a lot of details on each page and all are relevant. The presentation could be split into sections to support a worksheet or to create a self-test paper.
Tenth graders explore the different health risks associated with human papillomavirus. In this health science lesson, 10th graders identify different ways to prevent viral and bacterial infection. They research and develop an awareness workshop for their friends and families.
A fill-in-the-blank worksheet regarding transport, this handout would make a great study guide or quick homework assignment to help learners ensure they know the key vocabulary for this topic. There is no answer key, but these are universal concepts found in any high school biology textbook.
Students distinguish between active and passive transport. Students identify key words associated with active and passive transport. They draw and explain the structure f the cellular membrane. They are able to define phospholipid bilayer, hydrophilic, and hydrophobic. Students discuss diffusion which is an example of passive transport.
Critical thinking questions accompany a data chart and vocabulary terms about cell structure and function. By completing this two-page worksheet, your class reviews fundamental concepts about the cell. Though it was intended as a chapter reading guide for a specific text, it should be easily adaptable to your curriculum.
