Students will participate in a lab that models the diffusion of molecules through cubes of different shapes. They will take measurements to see how far a substance diffuses into different sizes of cubes (ie cell). Students will then use Geometer's Sketch pad to manipulate sizes of different objects and be able to relate how size changes surface area & volume (shrinking & stretching). Using Geometer's Sketch pad student will collect data and use Excel to create graphs. Using these graphs students will be able to relate that diffusion rates work best in biological systems and are more energy efficient in small cells. dc.subject CMST dc.subject Lesson Plan dc.subject Cells dc.subject Diffusion dc.subject Geometer's Sketch Pad dc.title Why Cells are Small dc.type lesson_plan refterms.dateFOA 2021-09-07T19:58:18Z dc.description.institution SUNY Brockport dc.source.status published dc.description.publicationtitle Lesson Plans dc.audience 7-9th Grades dc.contributor.organization The College at Brockport dc.languate.iso en_US
