Microscopes and Cells Test
Tuesday, October 23
1. Be familiar with how to use light microscopes, and label the parts.
2. Be familiar with electron microscopes – what are the two kinds and how do they differ?
3. State the three basic tenets of cell theory.
4. Define/describe eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells, and know examples of each.
5. Be able to label diagrams of plant and/or animal cells.
6. Be very familiar with the structures and functions of all organelles discussed in class. Also, know which structures are unique to plant cells and which are unique to animal cells.
7. Recall the purpose of the plant cell lab, and the reason we looked at those three particular cell types.
Review class notes, handouts and lab notes. See Moodle for links to helpful websites.
Textbook: Section 7-1
Format: Multiple choice, Modified True/False, Diagram labeling, Short answers
Short Answer #1: According to the cell theory, cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things. Name the parts of a cell that provide structure to a living thing, and also name the parts that provide function to a living thing.
Structure: cell wall (plants), cytoskeleton (animals). The cytoskeleton is made up of microtubules and microfilaments. Microfilaments help the cell move and complete the framework of a cell. Microtubules are important for cell division. Proteins in the nucleus form centrioles and they organize and aid cell division.
ORGANELLES TO REVIEW:
* microtubules vs. microfilaments (function), centriole
* contractile vacuole
REVIEW ELECTRON MICROSCOPES – WHAT THEY DO THAT COMPOUND LIGHT MICROSCOPES DO NOT, BE SPECIFIC.
REVIEW PROKARYOTIC VS. EUKARYOTIC – all the differences, not just “one has a nucleus and one doesn’t”
