1 History, Types of Cells, Organelles Cell NotesHistory, Types of Cells, Organelles
2 Cell Sizes can varyMost cells are small, about 40 human cells would fit on the dot of this letter i.Some cells are big, the yolk of a chicken egg is a single cell.The smallest cells are so tiny that you could fit over a million of them on the period at the end of this sentence.6th period finished this slide, 8th period started this slide
3 Cells are made of molecules Cell SizeCells are made of moleculesMolecules are made up of atoms.The atom is the basic fundamental unit of matter.Atoms are made up of protons, neutrons and electrons.Atoms are NON-LIVING
4 Molecules2 or more bonded atomsForm compoundsNON-living
6 How Many Cells are in an Organism? Unicellular or multicellular (review)You are made up of trillions of cells.You have specialized cells in your body. This means that certain cells only do certain things.(e.g. a heart cell cannot do what a brain cell does)Cells, tissues, and organs from different organ systems can’t be switched around.7th period start at the beginning of this slide
7 What determines the shape of a cell? The cell’s FUNCTIONBlood CellsMuscle CellsNerve Cells
8 Cells use EnergyThe cells of organisms use energy to do what living things must do, such as grow and repair injured parts.Cells are always hard at work.Right now ALL of your cells are busy!5th period did the first bullet point hereWhite blood cells (above)
9 How do we look at Cells?The invention of the microscope made it possible for people to discover and learn about cells.A light microscope that has more than one lens is called a compound microscope.The Top 10 Microscope IMAGES!!!Cool Microscopic Images
10 Robert Hooke The first person to describe cells In the 1660s, he built a microscope and looked at corkTo Hooke the cork looked like rectangular rooms, which he called cells.Cell is Latin for “tiny box”
11 Anton van LeeuwenhoekAt about the same time that Robert Hooke made his discovery, Anton van Leeuwenhoek also began to observe tiny objects with his microscope.Leeuwenhoek was a Dutch scientist and when he looked at water from a pond he saw tiny single celled organisms.First to see bacteriaFamous for calling cells “wee beasties”
12 Matthias SchleidenDiscovered plants are made of cells
13 Theodore SchwannDiscovered animals are made of cells
14 Rudolf VirchowA doctor who discovered that cells come from other cells
15 Cell Theory The cell theory states: All living things are composed of cells.Cells are the basic unit of structure and function in living things.All cells are produced from other cells.6th period
16 Cell TheoryDid our knowledge of cells come all at once? No, it came a little at a time and built on what we already knew.
17 Cell TheoryDo we know everything about cells? Absolutely NOT!!!
18 ORGANELLECells contain even smaller structures inside of the cell called organelles.Definition: a specialized structure inside a cell
19 Looking Inside CellsOrganelles were called organelles because early scientists thought they looked like “inner organs” kind of like our heart, kidneys, or brain.Organelles are made out of MOLECULES which are made from ATOMS
20 Cell WallDefinition: The outermost part of a plant cell. It is found outside of the cell's membrane. It is quite rigid and helps maintain the shape of the plant.Cell Walls look rectangular in shape and are only found in plant cells.
21 Cell MembraneDefinition: the outer portion of a cell. It surrounds the cell and keeps the contents inside.For example, it will let food and oxygen in but keep out harmful waste products.
22 CytoplasmDefinition: all the material between a cell membrane and the nucleusThis is a clear, thick, gel-like fluid PLUS the organelles
23 Nucleus Definition: The control center of the cell. Contains DNA. Directs the cell in how to function.Like the nucleus of an atom, it’s at the center!7th period got this far
24 NUCLEOLUSInside the nucleus It makes ribosomes.
25 Mitochondria The powerhouse of the cell! Produces energy for the cell. Muscle cells rely heavily on mitochondria.They kind of look like brains.
27 RibosomesRibosomes are small organelles that make proteins.
28 Endoplasmic Reticulum (ER) The endoplasmic reticulum (ER) looks like a giant maze.It moves proteins and other materials from one part of the cell to another.Sometimes it has ribosomes on it (rough ER). ER with no ribosomes is smooth ER.
30 VacuolesThroughout the cell you can find large water-filled sacs floating in the cytoplasm.These sacs are called vacuoles. Vacuoles store water and other materials needed by the cell.All plant cells have a large central vacuole.
31 Chloroplasts Only plant cells and some protists have chloroplasts. Definition: an organelle in a plant cell that changes sunlight into energy (photosynthesis).
32 Cilia and FlagellaCilia are hair like structures that are found on the outside of some cells. They help the cell move.Flagella (singular: flagellum) is a whip like structure on the outside of some cells. They help the cells move.
35 How are Plant Cells and Animal Cells Different? Plant Cells are rectangular in shape due to their Cell Walls.Plant cells have chloroplasts which perform photosynthesis.Plant cells have a large central vacuole.

47 The Importance of Cells Think about every time you need energy to move your cells have to actively be working so that you can move.Think about every time you breathe in your individual cells have to take in oxygen and use it to make energy.All of our energy needs are met by small tiny parts of our body that we barely even think of.
48 Our cellular needs are met by tissues and organs These needs are met by…Lungs provide oxygen to blood, blood gives oxygen to cellsDigestive system breaks down food into small pieces that enter cellsOrgans like the liver and kidneys filter and clean our bodies from wasteCells needAIRFOODto have their WASTE REMOVED
49 What goes in and What goes out… Diffusion is the movement of molecules from a high concentration to low concentration.Diffusion does not require energy use. It’s like riding your bicycle downhill. You still get somewhere and you still move but you don’t have to use the pedals.
50 What causes Diffusion?Molecules are always moving. As they move, the molecules bump into one another. The more molecules there are in an area, the more collisions there will be.Collisions cause molecules to push away from one another.Over time, the molecules of a substance will continue to spread out.
51 Which way will the molecules move? High concentration of RED STUFFLOW concentration of RED STUFF
52 Which way will the molecules move? High concentration of RED STUFFLOW concentration of RED STUFFThe molecules will move to a less crowded place
53 Osmosis Definition: diffusion of WATER through a membrane Requires NO energyDoes water move from high to low concentrations, or low to high concentrations?This is important when plants regulate their water supplies.Red blood cells can burst if they don’t use osmosis correctly.Just like regular diffusion, it goes from high to low concentrations. What goes in, and what goes out?
54 What’s the difference between diffusion and osmosis? Membranes only allow some substances in or out of a cell. This means these membranes are SEMI-PERMEABLE.
55 Osmosis – how will water move? There’s water in the cell and water outside it. Remember, only water can move.The inside of the cell is crowded with water. There is a higher proportion of water to plus sign outside the cell than inside.
56 Osmosis – how will water move? Water goes OUT of the cellWe’re trying to get an equal ratio of water to not water both inside and outside the cell.Water is the only thing that can move in osmosis, so it will move to where there’s less water.
57 Osmosis – how will water move? Water goes OUT of the cellWe’re trying to get an equal ratio of water to not water both inside and outside the cell.Water is the only thing that can move in osmosis, so it will move to where there’s less water.The cell shrinks when the water leaves. Now we have a more equal water to plus sign ratio.
59 Osmosis – how will water move? Water goes INTO the cellWe’re trying to get an equal ratio of water to not water both inside and outside the cell.Water is the only thing that can move in osmosis, so it will move IN, where there’s less water.
60 Osmosis – how will water move? Water goes INTO the cellWe’re trying to get an equal ratio of water to not water both inside and outside the cell.Water is the only thing that can move in osmosis, so it will move IN, where there’s less water.When water enters cells, the membranes can swell. What structure in plant cells keeps the cells from bursting if they get too much water?
63 Do diffusion and osmosis require energy? PASSIVE TRANSPORT – movement of molecules from a more crowded area to a less crowded area (requires no energy)ACTIVE TRANSPORT - Movement of molecules from a less crowded area to a more crowded area (requires energy)
64 Diffusion and osmosis are both types of passive transport.
65 Transport within Cells Both active and passive transport happens inside cells. Which type of transport requires energy? (Active) Which requires no energy? (Passive) What are the two types of passive transport we’ve talked about? Diffusion and osmosis.
66 Plants only have this structure Plants only have this structure. It provides a skeleton for the plant to stand up and provide supportPlants only have this structure. Inside of each chloroplast is clorophyll that captures sunlight and makes it into energy
