Unit overview:In the Unit 2 cell Unit we went over the structures of plant and animal cells, the organelles in them, transport, and mitosis. We also went over the functions and location of all of the organelles and which cell they are located in. This unit went over the differences between plant and animal cells. An organelle is a specialized structure within a cell. There are two types of transport energy, active and passive. Active transport is when ions or molecules move against a concentration gradient, an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration. Passive transport is the transportation of substances across a cell membrane by diffusion, going from an area of high concentration to an area of low concentration.Objective:The objective to this unit is to learn about the different organelles in both plant and animal cells. Not only to know what the organelle is but to know the strucure and function of it. Also in this unit we learned about passive and active transport, mitosis, the cell cycle, stages of mitosis, and cancer. Terms to Know:Throughout this unit there are many terms that pop up that you may not recall or recgonize from the beginning of the year.
