Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Thermodynamics

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Thermodynamics
This simulation/tutorial consists of five topics. In topic 1, students make decisions for a paramecium living in a Petri dish that will determine if it will have enough energy to survive and reproduce. Students will 1) decide whether the paramecium will eat, swim, or reproduce based on its available energy and the amount of energy required for each activity; and 2) Learn about cellular processes that require energy. In topic 2, students follow energy conversions in Euglena, during... More

An excellent, interactive exercise on energy and laws of thermodynamics. Helps students work through the concepts at their own pace. Can repeated as often as necessary.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Shockwave
