Module 1 | Cells as the basis of life

Content 2: Cell function

Lesson 1 | Diffusion and osmosis

  • investigate the way in which materials can move into and out of cells, including but not limited to:
    – conducting a practical investigation modelling diffusion and osmosis (ACSBL046)

Lesson 2 | Surface area to volume ratio

  • investigate the way in which materials can move into and out of cells, including but not limited to:
    – relating the exchange of materials across membranes to the surface area to volume ratio, concentration gradients and characteristics of the materials being exchanged (ACSBL047)
    – examining the roles of active transport, endocytosis and exocytosis (ACSBL046)

Lesson 3 | Cell requirements

  • investigate cell requirements, including but not limited to:
    – suitable forms of energy, including light energy and chemical energy in complex molecules (ACSBL044)
    – matter, including gases, simple nutrients and ions
    – removal of wastes (ACSBL044)

Lesson 4 | Photosynthesis

  • investigate cell requirements, including but not limited to:
    – suitable forms of energy, including light energy and chemical energy in complex molecules (ACSBL044)
    – matter, including gases, simple nutrients and ions
    – removal of wastes (ACSBL044)

Lesson 5 | Respiration

  • investigate the biochemical processes of photosynthesis, cell respiration and the removal of cellular products and wastes in eukaryotic cells (ACSBL049, ACSBL050, ACSBL052, ACSBL053)

Lesson 6 | Enzymes theory

  • conduct a practical investigation to model the action of enzymes in cells (ACSBL050)

  • investigate the effects of the environment on enzyme activity through the collection of primary or secondary data (ACSBL050, ACSBL051)

Lesson 7 | Enzymes investigation

  • conduct a practical investigation to model the action of enzymes in cells (ACSBL050)

  • investigate the effects of the environment on enzyme activity through the collection of primary or secondary data (ACSBL050, ACSBL051)
