Layer C Application (100 points)

Select either one or two, and then every student should complete number three and four.

_________ 1, (10 points) complete the chapter worksheets and define the chapter vocabulary terms. Assessment based upon oral questions from the instructor. 

_________2, (10 points) complete the section word diagrams and notes and show them to your instructor. (Notes include re-writing the objectives into questions, then answering the questions after reading the chapter.) 

________ 3. Use complete sentences and paragraphs to answer the discussion questions at the end of each section. You should be prepared to describe your answers individually to your instructor.

_______10. Make a model of the plasma membrane and explain the structure to the class.

_______11. Make a poster of the cell membrane.

_______12. Use the Biology text as a resource to find out which body systems rely on selective permeability to complete their function.

_______13. Make a display showing the differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells.

_______14. Research and give examples of careers that would require the study of cells in living organisms. 

Layer B. Application of learned information includes the choice of the following activities. You must complete 25 points to move to the A layer.

_______ 8, Choose from the following menu to total 25 points. A through E, G, and H are five points each; F is worth 10 points and must be completed by everyone. (You must explain your work to the instructor before turning in the assignment.)
