Magic of Middle School
The students explored Cell Biology this quarter. Their main focus was on cell membrane and its functions. They learned about Cellular Osmosis and Diffusion! They also researched dehydration, the leading causes of dehydration and how to prevent it! They created a model membrane that closely resembles a semipermeable membrane. During the process they also learned about transpiration in plants and observed cell structure (common mold) under the microscope.
The students focus on three dimensional figures this quarter! They learned to calculate surface areas and volumes of several two dimensional and three dimensional figures. They put their knowledge to work on Pi Day, calculate the surface areas of pies and hot chocolate mugs!
