Product Details

Biology Investigation: Diffusion and Osmosis


  Students will learn about the movement of water and nutrients across a cell membrane, and observe osmosis in living tissue. They will then investigate the relationship between surface area and volume as it relates to cells and diffusion, as well as examine the concept of molarity and how it relates to osmotic potential and the movement of water.

   They will be able to explain how cell size and shape affect the overall rate of nutrient intake and water elimination. Students will also use plant tissue to learn how to determine the molarities of unkown solutions based on the direction and degree of water movement.

   The kit contains enough materials for 8 groups, and includes a teacher's manual and student study guide copymasters. It also meets AP Science Practices 2,4, and 5, and Big Idea 2.
