QUIZ TIME on 12/18 and 12/21

There are quizzes on cell transport on both December 18 (B Day) and December 21 (A Day.)

We spent the first half of class reviewing material with some direct instruction and then played two or three games of Kahoot.

Quiz One consisted of 25 questions answered on the computer response site called quizziz.

Quiz Two contains short answer responses and one written response.

With the end of the second marking period rapidly approaching it very important that students make these up ASAP after Christmas break.


Activities/Assignments for 12/16 B Day

We finished up the POGIL activity on Membrane Structure and discusses the final Model on Active Transport.

We then developed a graphic organizer (Venn) that compared Passive Transport and Active Transport.

For the powerpoint that reviews cell membrane structure, passive transport (diffusion, osmosis, facilitated diffusion,) and active transport, Click osmosis+and+Diffusion

We then discussed osmosis.Here is the handout. Osnotes.

Here are the practice problems we worked on: Osmosis_worksheet[1]

KUD for the Cell Transport Quiz

We will be having a quiz on Friday on B Day and Monday on A day on the Cell Membrane and Cell Transport.

I am posting the KUD to help students study. KUD stands for KNOW, UNDERSTAND, DO.

KNOW: The vocabulary students need to know.

UNDERSTAND: The big idea of the unit.

DO: The things that students will need to be able to do.

Osmosis Videos/Demonstrations

We want to use the Egg Osmosis demonstrations to explain the symptoms of the disease diabetes and why a women died from drinking too much water during a radio contest.

Two of the symptoms of diabetes are thirst and excessive urination. What happens in your body to cause this? What does is have to do with osmosis?

We will place a decalcified egg in pancake syrup to find out.

A women named Jennifer Strange wanted to win a Wii for her family back in 2007 when they were hard to get. (Remember that?) The contestants had to drink an excessive amount of water and the last person to urinate won the prize. Jennifer finished second but later passed away from a condition called hyponatremia. What happen inside Jennifer’s body  and how does it have to do with osmosis?

We will place a decalcified egg in distilled water to find out.

Assignments/Activities for 12/11 A Day

Watch a review of Cell membrane structure. HERE

Students continued to work on the pogil activity with their groups.

1A completed Models 2 and 3.

2A completed Models 2, 3 and 4.

4A completed Models 2, 3

There was also some direct instruction mixed after group sharing of each model. Click here for the Cell (Plasma) Membrane powerpoint.

At the start of class we reviewed the structure of the cell membrane and which molecules were able to pass through with and without the use of a transport protein.
