Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Thermodynamics 1: Why Cells Need Energy

Logo for Connecting Concepts: Cell Biology/Thermodynamics 1: Why Cells Need Energy
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 availableenergy and the amount of energy required for each activity; 2) learn about cellular processes that require energy.

Part one of five interactive exercises that investigate the role of thermodynamics in cell activity. Uses simple organism to illustrate concept.  Very well written and well organized. Requires students to draw conclusions from information presennted.

Technical Remarks:

Requires Flash player
