Unit 2: Intro to Cells
This unit begins the study of cells. We will be studying cell parts, and different specialization of cells. Most information will come from chapter 7 in the Glencoe Text, or chapter 3 in the Pacemaker Biology text.

Concept 1: The fundamental life processes of plants and animals depend on a variety of chemical reactions that occur in specialized areas of the organism’s cells. As a basis for understanding this concept:
Standard a: Students know cells are enclosed within semipermeable membranes that regulate their interaction with their surroundings.
Standard c: Students know how prokaryotic cells, eukaryotic cells (including those from plants and animals), and viruses differ in complexity and general structure.
Standard e: Students know the role of the endoplasmic reticulum and Golgi apparatus in the secretion of proteins.
Standard g: Students know the role of the mitochondria in making stored chemical-bond energy available to cells by completing the breakdown of glucose to carbon dioxide.
