2. What types of things will it let in?
Task C-9 11-12
Nucleus - Eukaryotic cells' control center,
it directs all cell activities and contains the DNA.
DNA stores the genetic information for reproduction and functions.
RNA is here and other places in the cell.
In 2010, more than 76,000 America's veterans experienced
homelessness on a given night in January, according to the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs.
The estimated number of homeless veterans dropped from more than 74,000 individuals in 2010 to fewer than 40,000 in 2016.
About 11% of the adult homeless population are veterans.
1 in 8 veterans are unemployed (NPR, 11-11-11)
A recent RAND Corporation study titled “Invisible Wounds: Mental Health and Cognitive Care Needs of America’s Returning Veterans” found that an estimated 1 out of 5 of all service members and veterans suffer from PTSD or some form of major depression.
TASK C-11 11-14
Cell Walls are found in plant cells and some bacteria, fungus and protists.
The cell walls protect and give structure to the cell.
1 What gives us structure?
2. What protect us from viruses?
Task C-12 11-15
Cytoplasm - a fluid inside a cell that is made of water,
salts, and other material the cell needs.
Cytoskeleton - a network of threadlike proteins that
give the cell a framework in animal cells.
1. Why don't plant cells need cytoskeletons?
Task C-13. 11-18
Ribosomes make proteins.
They are in the cytoplasm.
They are also found on the endoplasmic reticulum.
If the ribosomes are there its called the rough ER.
Smooth ER makes lipids and help move things.
Task C-14 11-19
The nucleolus makes ribosomes.
It is a dark spot in the nucleus.
The nuclear envelope is a double membrane
that surrounds the nucleus.
Task C-15 11-20
Water is a polar molecule.
One end is positive, the other negative.
Water is the "universal solvent", it will
cause all matter to eventually fall apart.
1. What is stronger: water or rock?
Task C-16 11-21
Mitochondria - eukaryotic cells have hundreds
to thousands in each cell.
They provide energy by turning glucose (blood sugar)
ATP is used to power cell processes.
Mitochondria have their own DNA that only
gets passed down from mothers.
1. Muscle cells have many mitochondria, why?
TASK C-17 12-2
Muscle cells have many nuclei because
they are made from cells combining together.
Chloroplasts are in plant cells and use light energy
to create food from CO2 and H20.
1. What is this process called?
2. Where did the oxygen in the air come from?
Task C-18 12-3
You can think of cells like cities:
the nucleus is like city hall - it controls things
the cell membrane is like toll booths on highways,
controlling what goes in and out.
Task C-19 12-4
Golgi apparatus - prepares and packages proteins
Think of Vo-Tech
Lysosomes - breaks down and recycle parts of a cell
Think recycling center
Task C-20 12-5
1. What is the main difference between
prokaryotic and eukaryotic cells?
2. What is the main difference between
plants and animal cells?
3. Are fungus more like plants or animals?
4. What is the largest single organism on the planet?When done, install Classroom app from Self Service.Use 7573 to join my period 8 class.
Task C-21 12-6
Passive Transport - the movement of substances
through a cell membrane without using energy.
Diffusion is small molecules like oxygen and carbon dioxide
will pass through trying to equalize the amounts .
Have you ever had a balloon deflate over time?
1. Why do balloons lose pressure over time?
Task C-22 12-9
Osmosis - diffusion of water through a semipermeable membrane.
The concentration of water wants to be the same (equal)
on both sides of the membrane, and will keep passing
through the membrane until it is.
Task C-23 12-10
Facilitated diffusion is when proteins in the cell membrane
helping some large molecules pass through the lipid bilayer.
Active transport - movement through the cell
membrane that uses energy.
Endocytosis - things enter a cell by the
membrane surrounding it.
Exocytosis - things are released outside the cell membrane.
TASK C-24 12--12
As cells get larger, the ratio of surface area
to volume goes down
