Cell Transport

Author: Bob Lyons
Description:

Identify a cell membrane and understand why it is called a selectively permeable membrane made of a phospholipid bilayer.
Differentiate between passive and active transport across the cell membrane.
Define and explain the passive transport examples of osmosis, diffusion, and facilitated diffusion.
Give an example of active transport and understand it's importance in the human body.

The packet will consist of a video that looks at the difference between passive and active transport. Three examples of passive transport: osmosis, diffusion, and facilitated diffusion will be covered. The sodium-potassium pump and its importance to the human body will be mentioned as an example of active transport. The cell membrane as an introduction to the types of transport will be briefly discussed. following the video, there are seven multiple choice questions to answer as a review.
