    Cell Size - Surface Area Activity
    Lesson Plan
     
    Activity
    This unit is an integration of important geometry, biology, and technology skills. The students will be using spreadsheet programs to solve problems relating surface area to volume ratios. Students will use cell models to observe the effect of increasing surface area to volume ratios on cell growth and functioning.

    Teacher Notes
     
    Experiment
    Students use sockosome models of chromosomes (made from pairs of socks) to understand the processes of mitosis, meiosis and fertilization. Students are also introduced to the concept that understanding meiosis and fertilization provides the basis for understanding genetics and learn how a mistake in meiosis can result in Down Syndrome.
