Week 5 (02/01-02/05)

Topic: Membrane Transport and Cell Signaling (Chapter 5)

Standard: Big Idea 4. Biological Systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties

Objectives (Students will be able to understand that):

  1. Cellular membranes are fluid mosaics of lipids and proteins.
  2. Membrane structure results in selective permeability.
  3. Passive transport is diffusion of a substance across a membrane with no energy investment.
  4. Active transport uses energy to move solutes against their gradients.
  5. Bulk transport across the plasma membrane occurs by exocytosis and endocytosis.
  6. The plasma membrane plays a key role in most cell signaling.
