Students explore principles governing diffusion and osmosis. Students perform a dialysis tubing experiment. They obtain core samples of potato in varying concentrations of sugar-water to measure water potential of the potato cells. Data is collected and analyzed by using the Texas Instruments 82 graphing calculator. Students graph results.
In this photosynthesis instructional activity, students learn how plants trap the sun's energy and the light-dependent reactions of photosynthesis which includes the Calvin cycle. This instructional activity has 5 true or false, 6 fill in the blank, 2 short answer, and 10 multiple choice questions.
Students identify photosynthesis as the mechanism by which plants convert sunlight energy into a usable energy source for plant processes. They identify photosynthesis as the mechanism by which plants create a molecule that can be used to build or grow. Students recognize that the plant needs a mechanism by which to access energy all the time, otherwise know as respiration. They design an experiment which tests variables one by one.
